About this deal

You’re waiting for a but, and here it is…the app isn’t the best. Now it works perfectly fine, but it’s a little clunky, and most importantly of all, the tyre pressures it automatically comes up with are wrong. Jump starting is now fast, safe and easy, thanks to the new slimline Lithium Jump Starters from Ring

Once again, it featured a sensible reel to store the three-metre cable. The hose length was a touch shorter at 50cm and it was a bit of a squash to get it into the side compartment. We liked the easy-read display and large on/off button, but it would have been better if there was a case or bag.

We also loved how big the power button on the RTC1000 is — it’s big enough to be operated with your foot, meaning that you don’t have to exert the effort of leaning down to switch it on. It’s the little things. A simple tool that gets the job done. This analogue Essentials inflator does what it says on the tin, and at a price point that won’t break the bank. However, most manufacturers use the 13-inch tyre as a measure of inflation speed, so we’ll forgive Halfords that. In reality, we found that the Halfords Rapid Digital Tyre Inflator could take a 17-inch wheel from 22psi to 32psi — a range that you’re unlikely to need day-to-day if you’re diligent about keeping your tyres in good condition — in 1 minute and 36 seconds. Another welcome feature is the long power lead, which winds up inside the unit. There is also a recess on the side in which the air hose fits, so everything is neatly out of the way when not in use. And it comes with a zipped grey carrying case as well. You can then either press the foot button to inflate the tyre or the green ‘Tap to inflate’ button on your phone. It will then start inflating until you get to your selected pressure before stopping.

The rear display was small, but we were pleased to see a large bag included, because there were lots of pieces to carry. The results weren’t bad and this may be for you if you need a choice of power.On our test car, a 2017 Peugeot 208 XY, the official tyre pressures are 2.5 bar front and 2.3 rear for a normal load. With a full car, these increase to 2.5 front and rear. Ring has been industry-leading in portable tyre inflators for over 10 years, winning multiple awards from across Europe, including several from Auto Express. The new range builds on Ring’s credentials, adding extra features to make the new range of inflators stand out in terms of performance, usability and design.
