I'm guessing you'll get different answers, but I I am currently using the Black & Decker ASI300 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000IE0YIQ
) and love it. It will run off of AC or DC, and can be set to stop inflating after it hits a certain pressure.
It has two possible downsides:
- The AC cord is very short. You pretty much need an extension cord to use this.
- The gauge is not very accurate. It's consistent, but you can't expect 20PSI on the gauge to actually be 20PSI. This means you need to do a little experimentation for the "stop inflating" feature to work the way you want it to.
I knew both of the above going in, and never found it to be a problem. It's loud and a little slow, but it gets the job done. I really like being able to plug it in to use it at home, but also having the DC option for 'emergencies'
