There are different models that serve the same purpose, but here we’ll focus on this model, which can also be used explicitly as a flashlight and power bench. It also has by far the most chic design and at first glance can almost be mistaken for a Bluetooth speaker.
At 18 x 5.5 x 5.5 cm and 340 g, the “air pump” is still relatively compact and, as advertised, can easily be attached to a bicycle. On the side there is a display and several buttons for operation. Next to the air hole there is also the LED, which can be used as a flashlight. On the opposite side are the two USB ports for charging your own battery or a connected smartphone.
The maximum pressure is 150 PSI (pounds per square inch), or better said approx. 10.3 BAR. Even car tyres should be able to be inflated with it. The required pressure can be set via the buttons so that you don’t blow up your bicycle tyre. There are several attachments for the different applications.
Further accessories are charging cables, the holder for fastening to the bicycle frame and a carrying bag.
At least the extensive accessories, but also the additional functions as a power bank make the device more interesting compared to other, similarly expensive models. Only for an air pump the price is of course very optimistic. Automatic pumps are also available for considerably less, but these are usually dependent on a power outlet.
We like the whole package here at first sight. What are your experiences with similar devices? Are you cyclists? Do you like to be prepared for every eventuality? Why could you use the gadget?
