The Family Handyman - - STUFF WE LOVE -

Air mat­tresses, in­flat­able beds, tires, balls, swim­ming pools— we spend a lot of time fid­dling with hand pumps and air com­pres­sors. Black & Decker has made life eas­ier with its Mul­tiPur­pose In­fla­tor. This foot­ball-size tool can be pow­ered three ways: 120-volt AC, 12-volt DC (via cig­a­rette lighter adapter) or 20-volt recharge­able bat­tery (it’s part of the B&D 20V MAX sys­tem.) And it’s packed with lot of great fea­tures: On­board stor­age for power cords and air hoses. A niche for hold­ing a nee­dle valve, ta­pered noz­zle and Presta valve adapter.

The abil­ity to de­flate air mat­tresses and other in­flat­a­bles us­ing the hose at­tached to the end of the in­fla­tor.

A dig­i­tal gauge for check­ing the ex­ist­ing air pres­sure and set­ting the tar­get pres­sure (with au­to­matic shut­off).

It won’t win the “Qui­etest Tool of the Year” award, but it sure is ver­sa­tile. You can find it for about $50. Get more info at blackand­decker.com.
