    Very impractical design.
    Fuse for AC operation apparently blew over the weekend and pump will not work now. Pump is about 2 years old but gets very little use. I concur with all of the criticisms; in fact we used to grab our old B&D air station rather than use the new ACI300 just because it was so awkward to use.

    Nothing, really.


    See all the other reviews. B&D, you need to get your act together, and soon.

    Poor Design
    Works as advertised and automatic shutoff is nice feature, but the overall design is terrible: 12V cord blocks power switch (should be removable), air hose is too short, valve made of plastic (doubt long service life), etc.

    Automatic shutoff


    Overall design is terrible; in fact, it is inexcusably bad plastic valve short air hose

    Worked exactly twice on the AC side
    I was able to use the AC side of the unit exactly twice before the fuse blew. Having read all of the other reviews on here I see that everyone else experienced the same problem. Find it very hard to believe that B&D is doing nothing about this problem. I find these types of problems to be very common with B&D products and have decided that this will be my last B&D product that I purchase.

    Worked well ONCE if you can consider that a pro.


    Worked only ONCE before the fuse blew.

    poor quality and design of tire valve fitting
    Product worked for a few months. The end that clamps on to the tire valve failed, rendering it useless. It is a very flimsy plastic piece, of poor design, that simply broke under normal use. I sent it in under warrantee, but anticipate the replacement will have the same problem. The service center rep informed me that he could not replace the valve with a better one, and suggested I should have bought a better product. I'm appalled because the product should simply function as advertised, under normal use.

    Light, not too noisy, automatic shutoff.


    Tire valve failed. I'm concerned about this failing on the replacement product, and the AC fuse problem experienced by others. I would not buy it.

    Why hasn'his bn recalled!?
    This product was actually something I borrowed from my father in-law to inflate a few pool toys and has gone from me borrowing something and costing nothing to me having to spend about fifty bucks to replace it since the A/C side is useless now due to the fuse blowing which CANNOT be replaced. How is it that this was an approved design by B&D and even more so how has this gone on being sold by them this long knowing of it's obvious design flaw that is a flaw unlike no other and really has shot down any and all faith I've had in Black and Decker. This product has effectively made my whole opinion of Black and Decker go from bragging to passionately steering anyone I can from buying from them. They obviously have not a care in the world about what they are selling and weather their customer base is satisfied.

    It worked great for the first 15 minutes.


    It's worthless if any use consists of A/C power supply because from what I've been reading it's not about weather the fuse blows or not, it's about how long can you get it to work before it does blow. Then what? Replace it with the warranty? Then what after that one blows? Anyway you look at the facts it's an inevitable failure on Black and Decker and an unbelievable disregard to their customer base by continuing to selling this product which is an obvious money wasting expenditure. Unfortunately for those fooled into buying this item it only becomes obvious after the money has exchanged and gladly accepted by Black and Decker.

    Great Concept, But Not Reliable
    I gave this product two stars because mine DOES still work on DC power. But, like most of the other reviewers, I expected more from B&D. Seems like a little pre-market testing would have exposed this fuse issue.

    Auto shut-off and portability.


    AC power and fuse malfunction

    I bought one in 2009 and it worked great on DC power. I used it a few times on AC power and the Ac portion stopped working. Black and Decker sent me a new one in 2011, even though the warranty was out of date. The customer service rep told me that they can not be fixed. After using AC power 3 times, it stopped working. It still works on Dc power. B&D knows that this unit not not work properly, but continues to sell the product. This product should be recalled and pulled off the market.

    Dual purpose AC/DC power


    AC Power stops working after a few uses and can not be fixes.

    Stoppped working in less than one year
    Great little unit...but apparently I must have blown a fuse like others have reported.

    Automatic shut-off, lightweight


    Will NOT buy a replacment unit from B & D. This one was less than a year old and it appears that it cannot be repaired by the homeowner. $100 MSRP is awful expensive for such a short life. Plenty of competitors at a lower price. My Campbell Hausfeld lasted over 5 years. Don't know if the 12 volt option worked as intended, the unit died before I could try it.

    Do NOT Purchase
    This is the second B&D air pump I have owned. Both have failed within ONE year with very few uses. The circuit fuse blows very easily and can't be replaced. Come one Black and Decker! Really? Once the fuse blows this item is about as useful as tits on a bull. Spend your hard earned money on something else.

    Great concept.


    The fuse blows out and can't be replaced.

    worked for just a few minutes
    I received this as a gift from work. I inflated two car tires from 25psi to 35psi. First tire, no prob worked great. Second one I had to play with the dial and then it spontaneously kicked on. 3rd tire no dice. No matter what I do (turn on/off, moving dial, unplug/plug) I cannot get the motor to turn on. The gage still lights up and I can hear it "click" turning on but no compressor action. This was on A/C power. I see some people can get it to work on DC so I will try that. I am surprised so many negative reviews on the internet for a B&D product. Maybe theyre not what they used to be from a quality standpoint. Unfortunately I cannot recommend one of these to anyone.

    light up gage, quick inflation when it works (only 2x for me)


    it just doesnt work also AC cord is very short
