Slime Compressor

I've purchased a Slime compressor from Wally World. The price was low and it is incredibly light. Wondering if anyone has used this new style with the built in air gauge and how well they hold up? Here is a photo...still in the package.

I've got the older, larger slime compressor and it's been through a lot with me. Never fails to work. Of course since I'm carrying it it's always someone else who needs it....

+1 on the older one. Can't kill it.

I have 3 of the older ones. For the $20 each that they were going for, well worth it. One in a Jeep, the other two carried on bikes.

I have the same one. Lopped off the cig plug and wired in an SAE connector. It won't get my DRZ's tires much higher than 25 psi but that's plenty.

Dont lay them on the ground while running, dirt will be the enemy, it may be ok on tarmac.

No problems after about 4 years of use. More rocks than "dirt" here in CO. Point well taken though, suppose I could lay it on one of my gloves or something.

I have one. Its been completely submerged under water for several minutes and it still works fine. The onboard gauge was never very accurate even before the swim.

I've had the same one for a few months. The gauge is a little off, but it works well.

Huh, could be the gauge is just broken. Or that my DRZ's electrical isn't putting out enough power.

I have it. It works, but sure takes awhile. A small price to pay for its compactness, though.

I have the older, slightly larger one as well.
