The closest one to mine is the power sport compressor for $49.99. Mine is roughly 10 years old but came with a case like the one shown on the slime website

I have the older model of the powersports one. Works very well. Never had to use it on the bike but have filled auto tires with it.

Yep, mine is similar to the "Power sport" $49.99 model shown. Mine is older with similar case. I paid less than half that listed price.

Has anyone here used CO2 cartridges for inflation? I have 5-6 of the large ones in a patch kit I keep in one of the bags. I've had this kit for a bout 4 years but have, fortunately, never had to see if they in fact work.

And hopefully they are still charged after 4 years. I had some CO2 cartridges for a BB gun that were two years old and were useless. Check and see if there is an expiration date code on the cartridges.

Forget the plug-in junk and buy this. I wish I had it years ago. Shuts off at the desired PSI. I wrote the PSI for all my vehicles on the case for easy reference. I filled 8 car tires and 4 motorcycle tires on one charge and it was still ready to fill more. I recharge once a year or after using.

Slime is on my BAD LIST for their tire pressure gauges!! I purchased 4 of them to keep in various vehicles and one in the shop. At one point I went to check a tire pressure and had two of the gauges in my hand. Measured the pressure and showed 3lbs low. For fun I tried the other one and damned if it didn't say 1 lb OVER. Hmmmm. I gathered up all 4 of my Slime gauges and tried them in order. There was a 6 lb difference on the same tire between the 4 different gauges! Yikes! That is too big a variation for me to trust their crappy product. I'm sure their compressors work ok, but I would NOT trust the built in gauge if it has one. Be warned, as we can often feel the difference when we are down a few lbs..

Pretty common thru all product line cheap pressure gauges (even/especially digital types). A decent gauge is a much better product than the typical junk included with kits, etc.
Never trust a regulator gauge either.
I carry a Slime compressor for its convienent size but have no clue as to its longevity. Hopefully it works when I need it some day, better yet if I never do.
The older model I have has no built in gauge, and I prefer it that way.
