That said, I do have a Husky digital gauge, but I use it at home with my air pump to check the accuracy of the pencil gauges, and unlike the Accutire, made sure it didn’t have an unremoveable battery and that is resets when you remove the battery.
You can actually replace the batteries yourself when they wear out. It fits in a cargo pocket or your glove compartment. It shows the pressure for about 4 seconds after you remove it from the valve stem.
Also on the back are a sticker with what I assume is the date of manufacture and another sticker with the FCC information for the device. For a blog author to make the high schoolish claim that “it sucks” without any reason why, makes you look silly and not serious.
The package says it has a five-year warranty.
Accutire Gauge MS B Product Manual – Accutire Gauge
There mwnual several cons for this model gauge. These are some issues as you mention Consumer Reports doesn’t check: Anonymous November 19, at 7: It automatically calibrates itself after taking a reading you’ll never need to follow the confusing “zero set” directions on the package.
It turns itself on and off and displays the pressure clearly without any guesswork or thinking by the user. The pressure gauge is powered by a non-user replaceable lithium battery that will last about 5 years of normal use. This is comparable to published stats from other digital and analog gauges that cost quite a bit more, so for the price this gauge is plenty accurate.
James’ Ordinary Guy Reviews: Accutire Model MSB Tire Pressure Gauge Review
This was really an interesting topic and Accurire kinda agree with what you have mentioned here! Jones Morris April 27, at 4: James February 12, at 4: There is no on or off switch, the unit turns itself on automatically when you press it to a tire valve and shuts off a few seconds after displaying the pressure reading.
I think Accutire makes most of these gauges, but at least this is a more recent design. Accurate enough and quick to use.
This seems to go against the idea that the batteries only serve to light up the LED. I’ve read in another review that the three replacable batteries only power the light. So roughly, from psi, the worse case is 2 psi at the top end of the scale. I had two of these air gauges I kept in the consoles of our cars.
This is an especially user-friendly gauge that also happens to be especially cheap. If accuracy type is not specified, it usually means percentage of reading.
OneGeekDad January accjtire, at 3: Anyway stay up the excellent high quality writing, it is uncommon to see a nice blog like this one today. Posted by James at 2: I removed the batteries and tried to take a pressure reading but nothing. Dave Thomas November 16, at 3: The only problem I had with both of them was the rubbery grips became very sticky over time, perhaps from heat during south Louisiana summers It runs on three LR44 1.
I would keep a more expensive dial-type gauge around in the garage and throw this one in the car so you always have one along. I am extremely impressed together with your writing abilities as well as with the format for your weblog.

Hey, thanks for your comment. All information are really informative and describe the product very well. Here’s a shot of the unit in action – basically, using a pressure gauge does not get easier than this. This is the only company I trust when it comes to testing and reporting accurate information.
IG Saturation June 7, at 4: Newer Post Older Post Home. If you check Consumer Reports and Amazon, the quality control varies quite a bit, you can get a dead gauge or one that dies soon.
I guess it’s possible that the gauge is powered by another internal battery, but the gauge I bought for this review is still working so I don’t want to wreck it to find out! Overall I would not hesitate manal recommend this gauge to anyone. It’s also dirt cheap, and if you accidentally backed it over or if you had a glovebox meltdown I wouldn’t be heartbroken about replacing it.
I agree, Consumers Report does not accept advertising and is an unbiased report. The display is dead, even if you shine a flashlight to it.
