Wouldn't the air escape immediately?
Since it is a flat, there is a hole somewhere?
Do you drive or have a car?
If the nail is still there, the air will leak at a slower pace.

New tyre for those still costs $150-200 each. And must change two at one go. This $20-30 device can save your wallet.

Yeah will be getting one. But car lighter version.

IMHO.
Do note that the better tyre pump requires higher current. Some cigarette lighter socket max current is limited.

I see. Will have to double check this also. Hmm

It's a matter of time. Lower current for lousier tyre pump will still get the job done. Enough to drive to Paya Lebar or Balestier/Lavender (2 of the late night tyre shop area in SG)

If unchecked, there is a possibility of blowing the fuse - no outcome.

I see. So is juz a few mins more of pumping.
Longer pumping time is fine.

It seems car lighter uses 10/15/20 fuse amp....from wat i googled.

Under 1500cc cars may just use 10amp.

Portable air tyre is a great idea but I dislike the idea of a power bank or battery left in the car.

I have the Xiaomi one~ helped my colleague to pump his flat tyre~ initially he asked for the tools to replace spare tyre then I lent him my air pump, which save the trouble to replace spare tyre under the hot sun~ :s22:

Alternative is to get runflat lo.

But they are useless if you do not have a tyre pressure monitor in your car.


And they are godamm expensive.

I have a tyre pump that indicates 150W and 14A. 🤣
If pump only a single tyre, usually it is not a concern.
If pump all 4 tyres, have to read the specification for "rest" time.

There are certain areas in the car that is cool even under hot sun.

These days, a TPMS is a must. A tyre at 160 kPA will look similar to a 200 kPA tyre.
