Not ex no harm buying la. Most ppl dun feel the need cos they dun really care to pump air.

Offer u 2 more reasons to buy? Normal 2 weeks pump once, good roi. Go petrol kiosk, long queue u can wait until song song. Worst is those in front are taking their own sweet time. Pump alr, change pressure, pump again.

Got 1 auntie at pump, ask me pump for her wor, she say dun know how to use. I no give her benefit, tell her take the hose, set 225 pressure, tell her how to pump. I no touch anything.

Why does this exist?


All gas stations have air pumps and u will always need gas before u need air, yes? :s11:

Or am I missing something.
I rather you buy a jump starter better. Battery very flat without notice.

I have jump started with battery. A good Anker one.
But I leave it at home.
I don't like the idea of the power bank part of it left in a hot car.

Powerbanks can explode.

My first car is a 2nd hand 7yr old Toyota Corolla... i drove for 3yrs... never service once... never oil change... never check tyre... never change battery... lasted me all the way to 10yrs...

i guess i am lucky... i think older cars can take more beating and negligence...

Moi ex colleague also like u, his1st engine oil change was after 5 yrs collecting his keys nissan presea. 😳

But it has a battery. Heat in car may cause it to possibly explode. Happened to others be4. Have to keep it insulated from heat if keep in car imo.

I kept it at the booth after used, pretty much shield from the heat compare to placing it at the glove compartment~ battery explode probably due to low QC & knock off brand products~ :s22:

You never know. If it didn't QC by SG authorities, got high chance of explosion or fire.

Galaxy note 7 saga was battery manufacturer defects which Samsung announced on its findings~ the explosion was not due to external factor~ ya, I mean boot, if store properly with the box, it's not exactly warm inside~

I think it's inevitable not to have lithium battery items, like car DVR, cellink battery pack etc~ I also have the jump starter power bank inside my boot~ :s22:

Yeah inevitable but I still won't leave in car.
Already read enough bad news about exploding batts in phones, bikes, etc . Dunno when it will catch fire :s22:

Whatever model air pump you buy, make sure it has a screw on connection to the tyre valve. Those with clip on connectors are hopeless and spoil fast

IMHO.
Mine is the screw on and I want to convert it to clip on.
I actually bought the clip but don't where it is now.
For car tyres, everytime unscrew will lose a bit of pressure.

I agree that some clips will spoil very fast.
