    I must of had 50 12v ones over the years, theres 3 sat in my garage at the moment and they are total pooh.I just didn't want to waste any more money on another one.Using a 240v ring make at the moment and its great,but I can't find one that is digital as they are so much easier (for me) to read.Tyre pressure warning came on the other day and there I was with a torch 7pm trying to read the psi on the analogue ring one.Hence the call for a 240v one.:)

    Emm...........it isn't actually a 240v one its a rechargable one that can be run off the mains but is stepped down to 12 volt.
    I really want a dedicted 240volt digital one, they do it in a analogue but not digital...please prove me wrong.

    Again I think the 240v is just to charge the power pack, the compressor actually runs off that power pack ie 12v. Your suggested michelin one might be a better bet for me if there is not a dedicated 240v digital inflator. thanks anyway.

    Just as well - they won't have one anyway.

    Sellers bang up the price to a ridiculous level when they've run out of stock, to deter people from buying. This keeps the listing active so they won't have to pay re-insertion fees when they get more in stock.

    All of those charger devices with a pump are crap, loads of near new ones in every recycling center where they have been thrown away.

    I've got a compressor which i use with nail guns etc, it has a tyre gauge/pump attachment but its really not convenient enough for me.(pretty noisy as well to get up to working compression).Thanks anyway.
