12 V Tire and Tube Pump

Recommended Posts

MalibuNation

I'm looking for a heavy duty 12V air compressor that can pump up tubes and tires. Hopefully it'll have a connector for tubes along with what's needed for tires.

Overtons has Tube only air compressors. Thanks

It would probably be easier to find a boston valve with a tire valve. This way you can use any tire pump.

Something like this:

Can't find one to fit my HO Tubes ... the B V's are just a tiny bit smaller than what I need.

You would be better off buying two separate pumps. Tire pumps are high pressure low flow, tube pumps are low pressure high flow. It would take forever to pump up a tube with a 12v tire compressor.

Absolutely right,

It's high pressure, low volume (tire pump)

VS. high volume, low pressure (tube pump)

Or, maybe this would work.

Hoping to kill 2 birds with one stone ... I'm trying to downsize all the stuff I have stored in my house.

Thanks.

I tried to get away with one pump for both tires and tubes. I could not find a solution that worked well fo both. I tried 5 different pumps. I ended up with a ViAir pump for the tires that plugs into my cigerette lighter, and an AIRHEAD® 12 Volt High Pressure Pump that connects to your battery. They both work great!
