Air Hawk Pro is the portable handheld air compressor that works on battery power. But can it really inflate a tire in minutes? That what I’m going to find out in this review of Air Hawk Pro. Air Hawk Pro cordless tire inflator has been advertising for a while but it just showed up in stores here in Las Vegas just this past week, in February 2017. I bought it at a local Target for about $60.
For my first test I’m just going to do some tire inflation and a basketball to see how it works overall. First thing the instructions say is to charge the battery for three hours before use, so I’m going to do that right now. And now we wait.
You’ve probably seen the advertising for Air Hawk Pro automatic cordless tire inflator. It shows it as an air compressor that works efficiently in filling up tires quickly. All you do is turn it on, select the air pressure that you desire, press the button, and it inflates until it reaches that air pressure and then it shuts off. That’s what it’s supposed to do in theory, but does it really work? Here’s my test.
So as you can see this tire is very flat. I’m gonna try to inflate it up to about 32 psi, and we’ll see how well the Air Hawk does with that. It shows 8 psi which is about what my other tire gauge shows. I put it at 32 pounds. I pushed the button. The gauge was accurate. I pushed the button, and it seems to be going on its own. It’s supposed to stop at 32 psi. Well that was only about six minutes or so. That’s not too bad. It didn’t shut off automatically at 32. I don’t know why it didn’t. I hit the button and it hut off, but I’m gonna double-check the measurement with the other tire gauge and see if it actually is at 32. It’s quite a ways over 32. It’s at 38. So maybe the gauge isn’t that accurate but it filled it up quickly. Didn’t stop on its own. I can forgive the gauge being a little off because it performed pretty well. I’m happy with how easy it was to use, except for the fact that it didn’t shut off at 32 pounds. The Air Hawk instructions state that you should probably use a separate gauge to make sure you have accurate results. I agree with that because the gauge in my tests on the Air Hawk Pro was off.
