Yes, $70 is not cheap, but neither is the Mini Pro. It cost me $70 yesterday to fill up the gas tank in my van. We spent more than that on dinner for three last week. That stuff is or will be gone in a week... The inflator will last a long time.

The Mini Pro inflator is built in a factory in Taiwan. The factory is ISO 9001/14000 certified. The pump is RoHs compliant and CE certified for sale in the European Union. It has TUV certification.

Aside from all that pedigree, it has a feature set that no other pump on the market has.
3.5' urethane air hose with a zero loss connector. Polarity protection circuit with warning light. LED worklight. Amazing to have at night on the side of the road.
LED backlit pressure gauge that is easy to read, steady and very accurate.
Very efficient, fan cooled motor and pump that only draws 6amps, but pumps like it draws 10. Onboard storage of the 10' of power cord, SAE and Cig Plug, sports inflators for balls, rafts, sleeping pads, etc.

You could pay $100 for a Cycle Pump, made in the US from Chinese parts, $125 with an inline pressure gauge. Still doesn't have any of the other features the Mini Pro has, and it weighs twice as much without the gauge.

If you want a deal on a SLIME PSI or a Classic MotoPump, check out my website. Deals to be had at all levels of pricing and features...

You have convinced me. I cant buy this second but book marked your site and will buy the deluxe kit. I like the case being little over sized for other things for what its worth.

Its funny how I bitch about having to buy cheap junk all of the time and then when something comes along that is really a lot better I bitch about the price. The thing that convinced me is that this thing should hang in there a long long time no more than I would hopefully need it. It hurts now but quality stuff pays off down the road.

Thanks for the explanation on things.

Thanks, got one ordered. My Paypal is only linked to Canada with Canadian addresses. Thanks for sorting it out.

Thanks for pointing out the problem!

Great pump

Hey Rob,

This is a really great pump and I'm very happy about my purchase. Just wish the Neoprene case was a bit smaller (maybe without the accessories portion).

If at some point you do have smaller cases, I'd be interested. Thx.

BMW Plug? No Problem.

No problem at all to include an SAE- BMW plug, or convert the Cig Plug to a combo cig plug/BMW plug. Have been doing it for years with the first generation MotoPumps.

Make sure you are not on a CAN BUS circuit as they only allow 5 amps draw...

If you are interested, let me know.

Rob

The problem with all? BMW plugs . . . useless for heavier applications like drawing more than 5 amps like heated gear.

If it helps. I have purchased 4 of the slime pumps in the last 2 years. They keep breaking on me. One just didn't work when I got it out one day (luckily I was at home). I watched 2 others shake themselves to pieces while in use. (I even took one of them apart and tried repairing it but that didn't hold up either).

So for me, if I can get more than 2 years out of this motopump, that is cheaper than my current investment in the slime pumps.

But I too did not need the big bag and all the extras ,so I put the pump in the old Slime case and gave the bag to my wife w/ the old slime and she was happy too! two are better than one right!

GREAT PUMP, and great vendor....

Had been looking at both but had reservations due to "light duty".

Buy right, buy once.

Ordering now..

BTW - I'll need the BMW din cord. Thanks!

Edit - Order placed. Forgot to make note of need for BMW cord in the Paypal comments sections.

Got the pump in the mail, looks great. All I got was the pump. I was under the "ADV Special" had a couple of extras. Sorry if I misunderstood.

Hey Oddfellow-

It is hard when I don't get to connect actual names to screen names. I shipped two pumps to Austin that day. One was purchased from my website and one from ADV.

Let me know your name and shipping address and we will get this figured out.

Send me a PM.

Thanks!
Rob

Thanks Everyone. I hear folks comments about the bag. Will make sure the second run has a smaller, closer fitting neoprene case!

Appreciate the feedback.

I am confused here a little bit. If I order the one from the ADV site for 69.99 do I get the neoprene case also? Obviously, I want all of the perks of being a ADV member. Thanks.

One more thing. I have never used those dyna plugs before. Are they that much better than the regular tire repair strings?
