A year or two ago is when I first started seeing these Electric Air Compressors pop up throughout the community. After a bit of skepticism, I gave one a chance and absolutely loved it. After pogoing for Fifteen years and riding a Vurtego for the majority of that, I grow tired of constantly pumping my Vurtego up to my jumping pressure, only for it to inevitably leak back out because I forgot to tighten something, you get the idea. The cycle is endless. So when I saw these electric pumps I knew I had to get one. After a bit of research, I found a brand I liked online and went for it.
There are a few brands out there currently. I went with the Avid Power model, but I’m sure the Ryobi pump is great, especially if you have other Ryobi tools in your household. An obvious benefit to all of them is of course, that you can pump up tires with it as well. I am a cheapskate who only buys used tires so I am a frequent user of the free Wawa Air pumps. So far the battery seems okay, but I’ll keep this updated over time if that changes.
I took mine out of the box and straight out into the world for it’s first sesh. Although I accidently put the valve on wrong the first time, after some adjustments it took the pogo stick all the way to the pump’s limit of 100PSI. Check out the video at the top of this post for a sort of “video review” of mine!
