I am extremely impressed together with your writing abilities as well as with the format for your weblog.
Newer Post Older Post Home. It runs on three LR44 1. 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. Overall I would not hesitate to recommend this gauge to anyone. Click here for a how-to with photos of the battery changing process. If accuracy type is not specified, it usually means percentage of reading. 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.
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!
The package says it has a five-year warranty. 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. There are no moving parts to wear out. These are some issues as you mention Consumer Reports doesn’t check: Anyway stay up the excellent high quality writing, it is uncommon to see a nice blog like this one today.
So roughly, from psi, the worse case is 2 psi at the top end of the scale. With the battery dying in 5 years or so even mss-4021b you take care of it, it has acuctire obsolescence. This seems to go against the idea that the batteries only manuwl to light up the LED. Anonymous November 19, at 7: 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.
Wrong on Consumer Reports. Jones Morris April 27, at 4: Hey, thanks for your comment. There is no self reset when you change the battery, so even if you do try to do it some lock up. I think Accutire makes most of these gauges, but at least this is a more recent design. Here’s a shot of the unit in action – basically, using a pressure gauge does not get easier than this.
It fits in a cargo pocket or your glove compartment. I removed the batteries and tried to take a pressure reading but nothing. This was really an interesting topic and I kinda agree with what you have mentioned here!
Dave Thomas November 16, at 3: There are several cons for this model gauge. For a blog author to make the high schoolish claim that “it sucks” without any reason why, makes you look silly and not serious. It automatically calibrates itself after taking a reading you’ll never need to follow the confusing “zero set” directions on the package.
The handle shape contributes to a good ks-4021b.

OneGeekDad January 23, at 3: I’ve read in another review that the three replacable batteries only power the light. 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 Accurate enough and quick to use. I agree, Consumers Report does not accept advertising and is an unbiased report. This is the only company I trust when it comes to testing and reporting accurate information.
The pressure gauge is powered by a non-user replaceable lithium battery that will last about 5 years of normal use. Posted by James at 2: It turns itself on and off and displays the pressure clearly without any guesswork or thinking by the user.
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.
This is an especially user-friendly gauge that also happens to be especially cheap. James February 12, at 4: The rest of those “so called” testing agencies that accept advertising is based on opinions, which is worthless as the paper it’s printed on!
You can actually replace the batteries yourself when they wear out. All information are really informative and manuxl the product very well.

The display is dead, even if you shine a flashlight to it. It’s an excellent and unbiased source of consumer product reviews and ratings.
Also, they are not durable if you leave it in your car in the heat of summer, it will drift off calibration or break the plastic.
