    I do like this product
    My wife bought me this in 2012 or 2013. it is / was great for what i used it for, car tires, bike tires, air mattress. Until one hot day when i was filling up bike tires. after three sets of bikes there was a pop and hiss and no pressure. the air compressor plug came out. this has been a tool that i have not found a reasonable replacement for in the same price range. So, i am going to repair/replace the plug and (hopefully) get another 7 years. Would i recommend - yes i have.

    Nice inflator
    This is a nice inflator. It holds a charge well and gets the job done. My only dislike about this is that it is kind of complicated. I have to keep the tag that came with it attached so I remember how to use it.

    Worked fine initially...but...
    I got it on 12/28/2010. used it 5-6 times, mostly for beach balls and 1-2 times to add air in my Explorer tire. Light use overall.

    Pretty Cool Inflator Until Battery Died 9 months later
    The cordless operation is a nice feature, but the battery stopped charging after 9 months. Also, the auto cutoff operation was really nice (it cuts off when set PSI is reached)and it was accurate when it cut off. I like the idea of the car cigarette lighter operation, but that never worked. It didn't matter until the battery stopped charging and the whole thing stopped working.

    I spent hours online looking for a new inflator to replace one I had used for years that finally expired. Decided to try the ASI500. Liked the look of unit and the lure of Cordless Operation. Purchased at my local Home Depot, came home and charged unit for 4 hours as directed.Took unit out and inflated 6 tires with anywhere from 3 to 5 psi each. ASI500 WORKED FLAWLESSLY ! Unit had plenty of charge left on battery. This is Great. The Cordless Operation is so cool ! I can easily move around each vehicle and from one to the other. On Board pressure gauge is spot on when checked against my pressure gauge. So, now I don't have to lug around a seperate gauge. Auto shutoff is a real plus and easy to set.Pressure gauge is digital so virtually any pressure can be set for Auto Shutoff. As I was looking for an inflator to maintain tire pressures on three vehicels rather than inflating totally deflated tires this unit REALLY FILLS THE BILL.
