I have been using an inflator that plugs into my car's cigarette lighter for several years. It worked okay but it took forever to inflate even something as small as a bike tire. I also have a big compressor but it takes too long to set-up and put away for small jobs. The Husky 120 volt Inflator is just the right size for 90% of my projects. It is small enough to store and move, but it is powerful enough to fill a tire very quickly. The power cord is too short to reach my electrical outlet on the wall so I need to use an extension cord most of the time. I don't mind the short cord since it minimizes the space when I store it.
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, High Quality, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
I like! The last 50 years since Service Stations stopped providing service, it’s been a pain keeping all the car’s tires properly inflated. I’ve been using a 100dB 12vdc cigarette lighter type inflator since I’m too cheap and can’t justify the space or expense of a several gallon compressor in the garage. I used an accurate pressure gage to verify the Husky gage. They say +/- 3psi @ 30psi, I found it to be within 1psi. And what usually takes 10 minutes per tire took ~30 seconds. 2 year warranty and relatively quiet too. It’s a keeper….
I picked this up for under $20 during a sale and it seems like a quality item. I replaced a 12 volt portable compressor that was noisy and falling apart and I was actually fine with this one being home-outlet-powered vs. cigarette-lighter-powered since I only used it in my garage anyway. I like that the externals are mostly metal and the cable management for the air hose is nice. The plug is only a few inches long so you just have to stick it inside the hose-body gap to keep it out of the way during storage. What I really like about this compressor is the psi gauge accuracy. I've never owned a cheap compressor that had a gauge that even worked much less showed the correct psi. I aired up my tires to what looked to be 32psi and sure enough my high end analog gauge confirmed the same. It's also fast compared to my previous experiences with portable compressors. For an all-around budget inflator I find this one to be top notch.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Sturdy, High Quality, Looks Great, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
My sole intention for this pump was to use it for a high pressure road bike tire since the wife has a hard time using the manual pump to get to 100psi and higher. Even my large garage compressor could not accomplish this; I wanted something simple that she could use and one that is not 12 volt. I was a little put off by it's measly 1.5 amp draw as I had been looking at 12v models that drew as much as 27 amps. Turns out, this works just fine for my intended purpose, although it did seem to struggle when it went past 70 psi. Once past 90 psi it seemed to catch it's breath and continue to push past 110 psi. Perfect: simple and cheap. Let's hope it lasts a bit. As an added bonus, the dial gauge (at least on my unit) was dead on accurate when checked against an AccuGauge. 95 psi on the pump's dial was exactly 95 psi on the high end air gauge. Second added bonus, the unit includes a Presta to Schrader valve adapter with it's other adapters.Very nice!
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, dial gauge is accurate
I picked this up after the TPMS system in my car started yelling at me that one of my tires was low. It appears to have a slow leak so I've used this guy a few times on my car and once on the wife's car.
As others have mentioned, the pressure gauge is pretty accurate which I like. It's "close enough" that I can inflate a car tire to where it needs to be, check with a manual gauge if I feel like it, and get on the road. It has an air line long enough to inflate most normal sized tires if the inflator is put next to the tire. You will probably need an extension cord to make it all work, but this thing is good stuff.
It does make some noise but it's deeper than the 12volt models so I find that less offensive than the DC ones. This thing is good stuff.
Woke up to find two of my tires flat. In a pinch, and in the process of divesting myself of my C3 collection, I ran to Home Depot to grab this model (marked down to $25, making it the same as HFT's offering). Did the job; filled up two empty tires in around 15 minutes total, then topped off the other two in about another 10. As others have mentioned, it does tend to run hot and it certainly doesn't like to stay in place. The gauge said +/- 3 at 30 psi, and I found that to be pretty accurate. Only problem I'm having is the model number doesn't come up when I try to register it for the Husky Warranty (yes, I'm the guy that registers all his gadgets and gizmos for their manufacturer's warranties). So if anyone from HD can lend some insight, it would be appreciated.
The Husky Inflator is a great product for things around the house that require air, including the tires for your car, truck, ATV, bikes or golf cart. Very compact and replenishes the air requirements very quickly.
Was planning on buying a Goodyear/Bon-Aire, but my local store didn't carry it and my tires were running low so 'settled' for this. I was pleasantly surprised - the inflator is sturdier than I anticipated and gets the job done quickly. My only, but serious, criticism is that the combined length of the electrical cord and tube connecting air to the valve amounts to about 4 feet (if you're lucky) so an extension cord is an absolute necessity if you are inflating car tires. That being said, for $30 you could do far worse.
I bought this after years of keeping my tires inflated with a 12V lighter socket portable air pump. With that old one, it took 22 sec to add 1 PSI to the family minivan't tire, and 11 sec for our smaller Protege 5.
With this one the tires inflate 2.5 times faster, I don't drain the car battery, and I can see the pressure in its built-in gauge so I don't have remove the nozzle to measure pressure and monitor my progress.
I like the small size and construction seems sturdy enough and so far it's being working like its supposed to. My only complain would be that it vibrates wildly so I have to hold it down to read the gauge but this is only a minor annoyance.
For the price and size of the unit, I think it is a great way to keep your car tires to their correct pressure without having to buy a large expensive tank-compressor combo.
Pros: Lots of Features, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
Used it right away. Truck Tire was at 25 psi. Needed 30 psi to get it at recommended pressure. Took half a minute to get there. I likey

Husky 120 volt inflator
PostedJanuary 29, 2015
No, I do not recommend this product.
The product works great and fast of bike tires, car tires a little slow (Just to put in like 10lbs). Biggest problem is the inflator hose, it started leaking and so far cannot find a "Husky" replacement hose. The hose wore thru by the connections to the inflator. Still looking for a replacement hose.
Pros: Easy to Use
Cons: Not Durable, weak hose

Review 13 for 120-Volt Inflator
Failed on 2nd use
PostedJune 22, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Loved it the first time using it. Turned to garbage on 2nd use. Do not buy!
Didn't feel like putting the spare on my wife's car to go get the flat fixed so I picked this up from home depot. Hooked it up to a flat tire, thought it would take about 10 min to air up based on reviews, went outside 7 min later and it had taken a 16" tire from 0 to 60 and was still chugging away. Regretting not having this over the past few years. I carry an inverter around in all my cars so this puppy will be making road trips with me
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, High Quality, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
I purchased this to replace my Campbell Hausfeld Cordless Inflator CC2300 which died after 3 years. I originally wanted another 12 volt rechargeable, but after reading other reviews, and only needing it in the garage, I went for this.
This is MUCH quieter than the 12 volt models, works faster, and as per some other reviews, the pressure gauge is very accurate for such a small, inexpensive pump.
Used it to fill 8 tires tonight, and so far very pleased. We'll see how it holds up long-term.
I have used this pump to fill up my air mattresses on several occasions and it has not disappointed. The fill up is quick and easy. The only drawback is the plug in cord is a little short. This pump beats using a foot pump any day of the week.
Pros: Easy to Use, High Quality, Good Size & Weight
I had to replace my previous Husky 120-volt inflator. It was red, but not sure if there were any other differences than the color. But after my previous model's tip broke off, I had purchased a new one. This one takes so much longer to fill air into my tires.
