    This is the 12V AC-DC car power supply that I use. Max 10A or 120W. I do not need to turn on the car engine. I just plug this to AC outlet. It is universal voltage so can plug into 100-240V AC.

    i used to do it w/ a foot pump plus a separate gauge coz i was using a pump w/ an inaccurate gauge. the integrated and accurate gauge on this michelin is a big help. highly recommended

    I use this same foot pump. It takes only around five to ten minutes to finish all four tires.

    Bought mine at Blade. They sell other types of gauges and pumps.

    I use the same pump. Based on usage, 10 pumps per 1 psi.

    question about that air pump with digital gauge sa gas station; accurate ba siya?
    kasi pag nagpa karga ako sa vulcanizing shop ng 30 psi, then after a few days pa check ko sa gas station using the air pump with digital gauge laging mga 40 psi ang reading

    I simply use this track pump. More than adequate. Kindly note that tire pressure goes down about 1-2psi when it's cold, especially in the morning. It goes back up again when you've driven it for 20-30 minutes as the tyre heats up when used or during the hot day time. So, if your tyre pressure is 30psi and you checked in the morning and it's 28 psi, don't trouble yourself pumping it. It's totally normal. Otherwise, you might over inflate it by 1-2 psi once it gets hot.

    Try getting a measurement from another gas station or using your own gauge. From experience, there was a Petron station that gave consistently higher measurements than others.

    Nothing wrong with using manual tire inflators.

    But my wife and dad, and of course myself included, all prefer using the automatic digital tire inflator. Even my 9 y/o daughter had used it. Yes, I already taught her how to check tire pressure and how to add air.

    Its fairly accurate naman for me. I also noticed yun mga tire pressure gauge sa vulcanising shops, yun stick-type ba yun, is not accurate. I dunno if its probably those generic gauges or it needs calibration or repair.
