This thing is terrible.

I use this product every four months or so for light use. Now, the battery does not charge, even after being plugged in over night. I should have paid a bit more for a better brand.

Pros: It looks great!

Cons: The way it doesn't work.

NO Battery Replacement!!! What?!

The battery grows weaker over time. I have had mine for about 2 years. It is now unable to inflate my car tires on a single charge.
I asked Black & Decker (B&D) where I could buy a new battery and they said, "Unfortunately, the ASI500 does not have a replaceable battery. Your unit is covered by a two year warranty based on the date of your receipt or the date code engraved on your unit. If your unit is under warranty, please bring your unit to your local service center for warranty approval. If your unit is not under warranty, you will need to buy a new unit since the ASI500 does not have a replaceable battery."
Did you catch that? B&D will not replace the battery unless it is within warranty! What? It should be available for replacement even if their techs have to perform the work. Basically, if you buy this, don't expect it to work for more than two years. This is too much to pay for a "disposable" tool. Beside, the last thing this planet needs is more trash for our landfills.

Pros: Computer controls help prevent over-inflation.

Cons: The fact that the battery is not replaceable means this is a disposable item that cannot be counted on to last as long as you would expect it to last given the cost of the item. I don't know about you but I do not want to purchase a new air compressor every two to three years…especially at these prices. The cheapo air compressor I bought at Wal-Mart for my daughter’s car has lasted her 8 years now. It was only $20.

Worked fine initially...but...

I got it on 12/28/2010. used it 5-6 times, mostly for beach balls and 1-2 times to add air in my Explorer tire. Light use overall.

Pros: Great while it worked.

Cons: Today I tried to inflate another beach ball for grandaughter #3. All I got was "Err" (Error I guess) but did not work at all - it is fully charged! Stuck in the KPA pressure scale. Any way to RESET its brain?? Remove battery? How? $120 should carry me a little longer than 14 months!! It is a B&D after all, I do expect more!

An attractive tool that I bought on impulse

Works OK and is convenient with the built-in battery (cordless) feature, especially around my trailer which is out of reach for most power cords. The apparatus is quirky to use and needs one hand on the Instruction Manual to be used the first few times.

Pros: See above

Cons: Cannot be changed from friggin' Kpa pressure no matter how many buttons are "pushed-and-held", simultaneously or otherwise. I understand what a PSI is and the Kpa gang can go, well enough. I got on this site to see if there's a magic bullet for changing the units off metric and came to this part first.

Pretty Cool Inflator Until Battery Died 9 months later

The cordless operation is a nice feature, but the battery stopped charging after 9 months. Also, the auto cutoff operation was really nice (it cuts off when set PSI is reached)and it was accurate when it cut off. I like the idea of the car cigarette lighter operation, but that never worked. It didn't matter until the battery stopped charging and the whole thing stopped working.

Pros: I like 1)the idea of a plug free inflator and 2) auxilliary power through a cigarette lighter, but the battery stopped charging after 9 months and the auxilliary power never worked.

Cons: Product is very poorly designed and is cheaply made. 1) Battery died after 9 months of very light use. 2) Auxilliary power through cigarette lighter power never worked so it was "dead in the water" when the battery died and became a paperweight. 3) The features are nice, but I have to refer to the little manual each time I use it because it is difficult to remember to press this button and do this, and then do that, etc. Not intuitive at all and this means cheap components for these features. 4) There is a small air hose included for inflating rafts and other similar things. This little hose folds around three sides of the inflator in a slot for that purpose, but unfortunately after removing it the first time it won't stay in the slot...ever. It pops out immediately and therefore will be lost and worthless when you go to the beach, rafting and forget the pre-flight checklist to make sure it is close to the unit. Poorly designed, cheap materials and components. Not usual for B&D.
