Digital tire pressure gauges

Looking to buy a digital tire pressure gauge. Would like some feedback from some of you as to what you have found to work for you.

Thanks

Hank

Pressure

Hello, I bought this one almost five years ago. https://www.amazon.com/Accutire-MS-4.../dp/B00080QHMM It's still accurate according to checking with my standard pressure gauge. I did have to put new batteries in it about a year ago. It works great on my class A,

I am curious why you you would want a digital tire pressure gauge. A good analog one is likely more accurate and you don't have to worry about batteries.

My experience has been the opposite. Analog devices like a pressure gauge rely on mechanical parts which wear. Digital not so.

That said, don't settle for a cheap "buck ninety eight' digital gauge. get one that at lest has a calibration and accuracy claim. Good ones are available for less than $20.

I got the same unit after a good bit of research. I too always went the analog route as I considered them more durable and accurate over time, but this thing made me a convert. Easy to use and consistently accurate, worth every penny.

Same for me. I bought 4, 2 for a friend, 2 for me. Comparison checked all 4 several times with exactly the same results. Put 1 one the TT and 1 in the TV.

This one seems to have the best ratings on Amazon and it's just under $10


So far it's been working very well for me.

You must use your pressure gauges a lot if you are wearing them out!

I bought the Milton ExelAir and the 'pip' in the end that depresses the valve core broke off after just a couple of uses. I was past the Amazon return window so I emailed the manufacturer but never got a reply. Not recommended.

Yep, I agree analog wear out, 8 tires, 4 on RV & 4 on TV, once a month min as suggested for best performance and tire wear, also when outside temp change. Adds up!
