What an awesome little machine. I was so sure it wouldn't do the heavy work of filling my RV tires to 110 psi I carefully saved all the packing to send it back when it failed but it performed perfectly, even filling my RV tires to 110 psi using the 12 volt adapter. Works as well as machines costing 5-10 times as much. Thanks!!

I use this product to inflate tires for my autos and snow blower, as well as bicycles and some sporting equipment. I have only owned it a few weeks, and have found it useful and reliable so far. I like the fact that I can preset the air pressure I desire before pumping and that the machine cuts off when the pressure reaches that level. I also like the fact that it is light and small, not taking up a lot of shelf space.

I would have rated the pump four stars if not for the fact that, as other reviewers have noted, the off-on switch is located in one of the least accessible places on the device (a nuisance) and the lever on tire valve attachment is made of plastic instead of metal, and I am afraid of breaking it and rendering the machine useless.

Comments about Black & Decker® Air Station Inflator (ASI300):

I have been using one of these inflators for about five years and it has done a great job! I use it mostly for car and truck tires. It has pumped up my truck tires (31/10.50R 15) from completely flat to 45 lbs. in about ten minutes on the truck.
I agree the electric cord is short but that is what extension cords are for. I had to make a 12 volt extension cord so I could reach from my vehicle to another, which works just fine. I am sure glad I took it with me on a trip to Alaska when I got a nail in one of my tires and had to use it every 40 to 50 miles until I got to a place I could get it fixed.
I am going to buy another because the 110 volt side quit working but the 12 volt is still working just fine.

    I'd have rated this 5 stars however the PSI gauge on the front is off by 5 psi. I have to set it to 40 psi in order to achieve 35 psi. I've manually verified with hand held psi gauges.

    I've had this item for about two years. Just used it to maintain the tires on both of my cars. The pump saw nominal household use. After two years the motor burned up while airing up the tires on my wife's Kia.

        After reading reviews of this product, decided to make up my own mind and try it. Product worked as advertised. Took all of 5 minutes to take out of box and get ready to use. Added 15lbs to car tire and inflated in 5 minutes.
        Just what I was looking for.

        Works great. The negatives are that you have to unwind the car power cord whenever you want to use a/c power. The a/c power cord is very short.

                Comments about Black & Decker® Air Station Inflator (ASI300):

                I needed something in the garage that would allow me to top off tire pressure without finding a gas station to do so. I'm tired of waiting in line, racing quarter-hogging air pumps, and holding other people up if I want to be precise about the air pressure I keep in my tires.

                This unit does the job well, is not challenged in the slightest by ordinary tire pressures, didn't take long to get tires to full pressure, and operation was completely intuitive once I found the 12v/off/120v switch. In fact; it worked so well I decided to try airing up some tires sitting flat for years on an old truck I'm preparing to get rid of. I took them off the truck; and the Black & Decker worked just fine, the beads apparently stayed sealed and this unit pushed them from zero to thirty five pounds on several consecutive tires without getting hot. The only appreciable warmth I could feel was on the air hose itself, but the rest of the unit was cool to the touch after the heaviest use I'll ever subject it to.

                It's not fast compared to a gas station pump but it'll still add 5-10 pounds of air in a couple minutes.

                My only criticism is that the DC/Off/AC switch could have been placed on top of the unit instead of inside a cavity behind the area the cord is stored. That's a very minor inconvenience considering the problems this little, very inexpensive unit solves.

                I can't speak to roadside emergency use as I've never tried it in that setting. However, if you want something to allow you to add air to tires without a gas station trip, this unit is an excellent choice for a very reasonable price.

                  The tire inflator is fine for my use. It gives me peace of mind when I get a signal that my tire is underinflated. Easy to use. The directions say do not turn the car while inflating but that is the only way the inflator would work.

                  The on/off switch is difficult to see.

                  I don't have a lighter in my car but there is a power supply. Couldn't get it to work as the directions tell you not to start the engine. I think that's the only way to turn on the power. As a disabled person who can't beat the clock at the quarter air pumps, this unit looked the best. I just park it in front of an outside extension cord. That way I can move the car to get the valves on top.

                  I am a 70 year old woman, living along, that has to do most everything for herself. This little machine enables me to check my auto's tires air pressure, and fill if necessary, at home without needing to go to some noisy, dirty air hose set up. I also use it for my lawnmower tires, etc. And I carry it in my auto trunk for added security. However, be sure I would recommend this little gem for any gender or age group. A great little time saver and well worth the money.

                  Relatively quick to air up tires. Automatic shutoff seems to work OK. Accurate results when compared to regular tire gauge. A/C switch location is in D/C cord compartment and requires removal of D/C (cigarette lighter) cord to turn off & on even when using A/C (A/C cord is co-located with air hose). An external switch would be a big improvement but I still like this machine for is capabilities.

                  I love the fact that you can set the gauge to fill to the specified level. Along with everyone else, I agree that the on/off switch is in a bad place, especially if you are going to plug it into an extension cord and not into your car. That car plug should be able to unplug from the unit instead of hard-wired into it.

                    Performs well for the money. Accurate air pressures. A little short on the air pressure fill tube & a little inconvenient with the AC/DC switch location, but manageable. Great for home maintance and travel.

                    If you have a slow tire leak (I have two) this product is the best.

                    I set the stop settings for 32 psi (using a separate air guage to adjust the setting). I then inflated each of the 4 tires on my SUV. Checking with my separate tire guage the pump had stopped exactly at 32 psi. This is the first product I have ever owned that would do this and the ability to use both the electric plug in the garage and the dc from the car dash is a big improvement that other pumps I have owned have never had.

                    The only negative I can find is that the on/off switch is located under the wires for dc operation and under the power cord making it a little hard to find and operate, but I can live with that.

                    This is an excellent product, the best I have found in the marketplace.

                    This 'Air Pump' is truly $$$ well spent

                      I'm not a gifted machinist, so when I used this device 'the first time' it didn't require natural talent or training in science... It worked perfectly, and easily.. In fact, it might possibly be a "GOD BLESSED" tool...

                        What an awesome little machine. I was so sure it wouldn't do the heavy work of filling my RV tires to 110 psi I carefully saved all the packing to send it back when it failed but it performed perfectly, even filling my RV tires to 110 psi using the 12 volt adapter. Works as well as machines costing 5-10 times as much. Thanks!!
