    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.

    Neat, Clean and Compact Design. A place for everything and everything in it's place.
             
    I spent hours online looking for a new inflator to replace one I had used for years that finally expired. Decided to try the ASI500. Liked the look of unit and the lure of Cordless Operation. Purchased at my local Home Depot, came home and charged unit for 4 hours as directed.Took unit out and inflated 6 tires with anywhere from 3 to 5 psi each. ASI500 WORKED FLAWLESSLY ! Unit had plenty of charge left on battery. This is Great. The Cordless Operation is so cool ! I can easily move around each vehicle and from one to the other. On Board pressure gauge is spot on when checked against my pressure gauge. So, now I don't have to lug around a seperate gauge. Auto shutoff is a real plus and easy to set.Pressure gauge is digital so virtually any pressure can be set for Auto Shutoff. As I was looking for an inflator to maintain tire pressures on three vehicels rather than inflating totally deflated tires this unit REALLY FILLS THE BILL.
    Pros:

    The Cordless Operation is by far the coolest feature. Everything else is a bonus. The on board digital pressure gauge, Autoshutoff and ability to inflate more than just tires are all great features.

    Cons:

    Unit could use a cover over inlet for low pressure high volume pump. Keep stuff from getting in there. Also, a memory to store tire pressures would be nice. Some folks may find the shutoff after 2 minutes of non use [ when on internal battery ]kind of a pain. When you turn unit back on you must then re-enter tire pressure. I know this is to help conserve battery but would be nice if this feature could be turned off if desired.

    Neat Compact Design. A place for everything and everything in it's place.
             
    I was looking for a new Inflator to replace an old trusted friend that after years of service finally gave out. After hours online researching the new crop, I decided to try the ASI500.The Clean, Compact Styling and Cordless operation caught my eye. Purchased at my local Home Depot , came home charged for four hours as directed went out and gave it a try. I inflated 6 tires anywhere from 3 to 5 psi in each tire. EVERYTHING WORKED FLAWLESSLY ! Unit had plenty of charge remaining. Granted, this was first time use but I am impressed. The onboard air gauge is spot on when checked against my analog dial gauge.The auto shutoff worked perfectly every time.Really a joy to use. I have three vehicles and was looking for something to maintain tire pressures as opposed to inflating tires that are completely deflated. This unit really,for me, fills the bill.
    Pros:

    What I like best. The Cordless Operation.It is Great! Not having to deal with some kind of cord really makes life alot easier. The on board air pressure gauge being on the money means I don't have to lug my pressure gauge along. Another plus, the auto shut off is also very cool and easy to set psi. on.Also note the on board pressure gauge is digital so you can set virtually any tire pressure for the auto stop.

    Cons:

    While overall product seems well thought out it could use some sort of cover over intake for High Volume Low Pressure pump. So stuff couldn't get into opening. Likwise, for spot where charger plugs into unit.Also, it would be nice if there were a memory to store tire pressures and a way to turn off the sleep mode that kicks in after two minutes of non use. I know this is to save battery but when it kicks in you then have to turn unit back on and re-enter tire pressure.
