The cheapest of our digital tyre pressure gauges on test, so if all you need is a nofrills device, this may be the answer. There are no extras, such as a backlight, torch or tyre tread depth gauge, but the gauge does provide the full range of tyre pressure measurements. On the downside, there’s no means of replacing the battery or batteries because it’s a sealed unit, although we’ve been using the gauge shown here since July 2015 and it has yet to fail.
The plastic construction of the gauge, particularly the part that fits over the Schrader valve, appears to be more reliable at providing a reading than many of the more expensive gauges we tested. Our lab tests showed this gauge to be one of the least accurate, but we’re talking 0.9% less accurate than the best gauge on test. If you have a number of cars and want to carry a tyre pressure gauge in each, this may be the most cost-effective solution.
