Jones Morris April 27, at 4: It turns itself on and off and displays the pressure clearly without any guesswork or thinking by the user. Accurate enough and quick to use.
Accutire Gauge MS B Product Manual – Accutire Gauge
James February 12, at 4: For a blog author to make the high schoolish claim that “it sucks” without any reason why, makes you look silly and not serious. If you check Consumer Reports and Amazon, the quality control varies quite a bit, you can get a dead gauge or one that dies soon.
It’s an excellent and unbiased source of consumer product reviews and ratings. This seems to go against the idea that the batteries only serve to light up the LED. I think Accutire makes most of these gauges, but at least this is a more recent design.
Also on the back are a sticker with what I assume is the date of manufacture and another sticker with the FCC information for the device.
I removed the batteries and tried to take a pressure reading but nothing. Anyway stay up ms-4021bb excellent high quality writing, it is uncommon to see a nice blog like this one today. The only problem I had accuutire both of them was the rubbery grips became very sticky over time, perhaps from heat during south Louisiana summers Hey, thanks for your comment. IG Saturation June 7, at 4: This is comparable to published stats from other digital and analog gauges that cost quite a bit more, so for the price this gauge is plenty accurate.
There are no moving parts to wear out. The display is dead, even if you shine a flashlight to it. This was really an interesting topic and I kinda agree with what you adcutire mentioned here! Newer Post Older Post Home. There is no on or off switch, the unit turns itself on automatically when you press it to a tire valve and shuts off a few seconds after displaying the pressure reading.
Wrong on Consumer Reports. Here’s a shot of the accjtire in action – basically, using a pressure gauge does not get easier than this.
The package says it has a five-year warranty. I’ve read in another review that the three replacable batteries only power the light.
Accutire Gauge MS 4350B Product Manual
It fits in a cargo pocket or your glove compartment. So roughly, from psi, the worse case is 2 psi at the top end of the scale. It automatically calibrates itself after taking a reading you’ll never need to follow the confusing “zero set” directions on the package.
I agree, Consumers Report does not accept advertising and is an unbiased report. The pressure gauge is powered by a non-user replaceable lithium battery that will last about 5 years of normal use. It runs on three LR44 1. It’s also dirt cheap, and if you accidentally backed it over or if you had a glovebox meltdown I wouldn’t be heartbroken about replacing it.
The rest of those “so called” testing agencies that accept advertising is based on opinions, which is worthless as the paper it’s printed on!
You accutiire actually replace the batteries yourself when they wear out. OneGeekDad January 23, at 3: This is the only company I trust when it comes to testing and reporting accurate information.
I am extremely impressed together with your writing abilities as well as with the format for your weblog. Dave Thomas November 16, at 3: All information are really informative and describe the product very well.
These are some issues as you mnaual Consumer Reports doesn’t check: With the battery dying in 5 years or so even if you take care of it, it has planned obsolescence. I would keep a more expensive dial-type gauge around in the garage and throw this one in the car so you always have one along.
That said, I do have a Husky digital gauge, but I use it at home with my air pump to check the accuracy of the pencil gauges, and unlike the Accutire, made sure it didn’t have an unremoveable battery and that is resets when you remove the accutjre.
I had two of these air gauges I kept in the consoles of our cars. Posted by James at 2: Also, they are not durable if you leave it in your car in the heat of summer, it will drift off calibration or break the plastic. It shows the pressure for about 4 seconds after you remove it from the valve stem.
There is no self reset manul you change the battery, so even if you do try to do it some lock up. Click here for a how-to with photos of the battery changing process. This is an especially user-friendly gauge that also happens to be especially cheap. Overall I would not hesitate to recommend this gauge to anyone.
