Been there done these. Definitely worth putting the 5 bucks towards a better gauge.

Just finished testing mine. Between my Viair 88P, Husky and a old n' trusty digital gauge they all came within 2psi. The Viair has a analog gauge and was consistently reading higher by 2psi, which from reviews seems to be quite common. The 2 digitals were within .5psi of each other at all 4 tires.

This is my first digi with a led and have found it to be a great help in the dark. So far so good.




EDIT-----5/2/17-----BATTERIES LASTED 2 MONTHS. My 10 year old digital gauge lasts more than 2 years on a single button cell battery. I mean, it was only $5 and works well but for anyone else considering this please keep the battery life in mind. I'd much rather pay a bit more so that I wouldn't have to go through a dozen AAA batteries per year.

Not worth it as per the user review on amazon

This gauge works as described, it's easy to read and seems to be accurate, but everyone knows that filling a tire to the proper air pressure (or lowering pressure) involves taking a measurement, reading it, and either adding air, or letting it out. Unless the pressure is right on, you will be taking one or more additional measurements. The problem with this gauge is that once you take a reading, the display holds on to that reading, it does not reset after a second or so, or let you push a button to reset back to 0.00 psi.. What you have to do for EVERY reading is 1) turn the unit on, 2) measure and read the pressure, and THEN 3) press and hold the red button for three seconds until the unit turns off. You must repeat steps 1 to 3 for EVERY READING, which can be time-consuming if you're trying to "dial in" a tire with very low pressure. Not sure if there are other digital tire gauges with a quick and easy reset capability, but if there isn't, I would save my money and purchase a good manual stick gauge.

The psi number from the first tire will stay in it while its on, however when u go to measure the next tire it will automatically reset itself and display the psi on the next tire u check over and over.

Were you keeping it somewhere that the button would get pressed accidentally often? Mine gets turned on accidentally all the time because the button is way too easy to press. But still, it's on the original set of Energizer lithium AAAs I put in it nearly a year ago. I used lithium batteries because alkaline batteries don't seem to last particularly long in the high summer temperatures in a car where I keep mine, and alkalines have trouble delivering power in cold winter temperatures.

Was thinking of pulling the trigger but if you have to turn it on and off for every reading it sounds like it's more trouble than it's worth. I'll pass for now.
I think you're right about this gauge being more trouble than it's worth, but the poster you are referring to is mistaken (or has a defective gauge) about the need to reset the gauge to zero before each reading. Even if the gauge is still showing the previous reading, pressing it on a valve stem will cause it to take a new measurement. Every digital tire gauge I've used works that way.

I have this and I don't have to do that. It will take multiple readings without doing anything. I will say it only reads in increments of .5 psi for whatever that's worth.

I bought one for my GF and filled up her tires that triggered her tire pressure warning. I was amazed at myself by hitting the exact PSI in one shot for 3 of the tires. Now I know why.
