    The last tire pump that you’ll ever buy; unless you’re like me. I’ve owned a number of 12 volt tire pumps over the years and some had very recognizable “big brand” names on them, yet they didn’t last. Overheating, burning out and taking forever to inflate a tire were the most common problems with every other pump that I’ve owned. So, I did more research before buying the RAD Sportz and it paid off. I knew when I received this pump that it was different just because it weighed a lot but I had to put it to the test. It inflates a tire in a fraction of the time that any of the others’ did and although it certainly got hot, it wasn’t too hot to handle. I also appreciate the long power cord and the screw-on valve connection. After months of use, I’m happy to recommend this to everyone who I know.

    Oh yea, the reason it won’t be my last pump purchase is because I’m buying them for each of my kids.

    Previous review didn’t save, here’s the gist of it.

    Currently returning this product for the following reasons:

    -Device heats up to the point I think it’s going to start melting the plastic housing
    -Makes odd noises throughout the inflation process (dangerous ‘knocking’ noises)
    -Plug gets extremely hot
    -Carrying case/protective bag that the device is meant to be stored in had three malfunctions on first use: zipper separated and the zipper handle broke off, one of the two buckles broke the first time I buckled it.

    Absolute worst quality ever. Indicative of ‘Far East’ manufacturing.

    Overall I feel this item is a safety concern and will be returning.
