…but it’s perpetually out-of-stock!
As we’ve stated before in these pages, we love the lifetime warranty that comes with Home Depot’s Ridgid tools. It’s the only lifetime offer in the category, and it convinced us to go with Ridgid over the cheaper Ryobi cordless tools for our entry-level cordless tool picks.
Because of this, we were eager to test out some of the other tools that Ridgid has in their 18volt tool lineup. And, leading into summer and trying to plan ahead, we see needing to fill up lots of bicycle tires, and have a portable option along for trailer camping and road trips.
The Ridgid 18v high pressure cordless inflator fit the bill, and works with the high-capacity 4 Ah batteries we already have from Ridgid. Unlike other cordless inflators, this one from Ridgid even comes with an 11 foot long 12V DC power adapter to plug it into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter/auxiliary power port.
It comes with some cool features that other more expensive versions from other companies don’t have, like a digital pressure gauge, a max-pressure of 150 PSI! and an automatic feature that allows you to set the desired pressure, start the cordless inflator, and walk away.
And if that all wasn’t enough, this cordless inflator even provides the fatest truck tire fill from flat to full (according to Ridgid).
Only one problem, Home Depot! There’s even a Reddit thread about it.
We’ve been trying to buy it for weeks, and other than a 2 day period where a store 3 hours away from us had 2 in stock, the website chronically shows this cordless inflator is out-of-stock. I guess we aren’t the only ones that think this thing would be great to have on hand!
