Since I discovered a mini electric air pump a few years ago, it has become an essential accessory not only for my bicycle but also for my car and anything that needs to be inflated with air. 2 years ago, I had to spend more than $100 to own such a device, and now I find out that some cost just around $50. In this post, we’re checking out the Aiskki Electric Handheld Air Pump which also comes under some other brands like innhom or BOHINA.
The product has a simple packaging with just the air pump, a storage bag, a micro-USB charging cable, an air hose, and 4 needle adapters to inflate different products.
Although this is a handheld air pump, it is not really easy to carry around, especially for cyclists. Specifically, it measures 8.70 inches long and 2.16 inches in diameter, and weighs less than 1 lbs. I hardly bring my pump when cycling, so this is not a big issue. It is more suitable when you leave the pump in your car, backpack or equipment kit.
The pump can inflate tires of bicycle, motorcycle, car, balls, swimming rings, etc. The maximum inflation pressure is 150 PSI.
It is equipped with an 1,000 mAh rechargeable lithium battery and it can also be used as a power bank to charge your devices like iPad or smartphones. Besides, you can also long press the + button to turn on the built-in flashlight; The light is not really bright but it is enough to help in case of emergency. The battery can be fully charged in 40 minutes.
Notice that you shouldn’t use the pump excessively because it would get hotter after a few minutes. I’d recommend you to take a break after using it for about 3-4 minutes. The inflating speed is not really fast, for instance, it takes me more than 2 minutes to reach 100 PSI on my bicycle’s tire and the battery is drained out completely by then. Therefore, you shouldn’t expect inflating all 4 tires of your car at once.
