Save 50% on a digital air pump that inflates balls, tires, and pool toys for you

Maybe an obvious question, but can this be used WITHOUT needles to pump bike tires?

The headline is wrong: this gadget cannot inflate a tire. It can’t pump to more than 12 psi. A car tire needs 30 psi or more. A typical bicycle tire needs 70.


What makes it digital? Does it use transistors to move air?


You have to finger it to make it work?


Since it is digital, I assume you can connect the thing to be inflated over wifi or bluetooth.


Its max pressure is 12 PSI, it can’t pump regular bike tires at all. Unless you ride a 4+ inch fat tire bike off-trail this would be pointless for a bike*

*even if you do this would be mostly pointless, but it could be used in a pinch in that case


Gawd what a chunk of clutter. For $25 more you can buy a decent pancake air compressor with an inflator chuck and use it to do serious work. For $20 less you can get a car tire inflator that, you know, fills tires.

Maybe they could sell a digital hammer!? I need that about as much as this. They could even sell it for 300$ (riginally 600$) if the price of this gadget is an indication (my ‘manual’ ball pump cost about 5$ and it does the job just fine.)

Or a digital clothes peg. Fancy. Never again get your clothes too dry.

Looks the same to me.

The related links has one that’s AA batteries instead of rechargeable if that matters. Also a bunch of manual options with gauges if that’s the desire and you can handle a couple of minutes of manual effort.
