Bought a Digital tyre inflator, box says max pressure is 100psi
Leaflet inside box states not suitable for commercial vehicles.
I have a camper based on a Ford Transit van whose tyres require 80 psi.
(a) Are the cables/pipes long enough?
(b) Can it pump up to this pressure?

on Halfords Digital Tyre Inflator
Electrical cable is about 3 m long, but I have an extra plug point in the boot of my car so do not worry about it. Air pipe is about 30 cm long.
If they say it pumps up to 100psi so it does but for bigger tyres it takes more time to inflate so using it too long may overheat it.

Hi, thanks for your interest in Halfords Digital Tyre Inflator.
Max pressure is 100psi, so 80psi should be fine. The inflator is not suitable for commercial vehicles, as the length of the cable is based on the size of an average car.
The Halfords Digital Tyre Inflator is designed for use on cars, and has a 12v cigarette plug, which may not reach around the motorhome. The tube cable length is designed for motor cars.
