Default Digital Tyre Gauge with Deflator

Just got a digital tyre gauge with an inbuilt deflator.

Its called a Slime Digital Tyre Gauge, comes with a 30cm hose, 4 pressure presets, pressure hold or dynamic mode, bac**** display & most importantly...an inbuilt deflator!

http://www.slime.com/shop/digital-ga...ed-hose-20071/

Its a lil complicated if you want to use its features & the instructions arent the clearest, but set to "dyna" mode (shows pressure in real time) its pretty simple. Turn it on, attach it to the valve stem & press the deflator to your desired pressure

There are presets which I set to 36 (for airing back up with hot tyres), 28, 22 & 16PSI. It beeps if the pressure reads over the preset.

The hose coils around the gauge in a tidy keeper, seems to be well made & makes airing down simple, easy & fast. At $40 its a lil expensive but its the only digital gauge I've found with a deflator

That's a luxurious little tool, but well worth it for the convenience.

Do you find it deflates faster or slower compared with others you've used?

I used to use a specially designed deflator I made myself (a small stick I found in Robe ) & this seems to deflate just as quickly lol
