" ...  The length of the power cord is definitely sufficient for standard sedans, and the air hose is longer than the smaller cheaper inflators or foot pumps I've tried before.  ...  "

comment
" ...  The cord is long and the hose is good quality.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Usage is pretty straightforward, the power cable is long enough to reach all tires of a standard car, and the size of the air hose provides enough length to reach the valve stems, the clamp/attachment system is simple to use too (in the past, I've had these kinds of heads wear out and not be able to hold onto the stem to fill, so I'll be keeping an eye on this moving forward, but for now, it grips and holds without issue).  ...  "
comment
" ...  I like how lite it was and the long cords.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The plastic is of good quality, even the tie around the power cable is conveniently designed for reusability (see pictures) ... Wish it came with a case, and had some additional room for the cables, but I liked that you can tuck the cables into the device, and the plastic is nicely finished around the edges so that there are no hard edges.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I love that the part that connects to your tire's air stem is NOT the screw-on type (those are TERRIBLE - they cause your tire to lose pressure when you attach it, and also when you take it off - so it's pretty much impossible to get the proper pressure for your tires).  ...  "
