    I bought that same gauge but it was off 1.5 to 2 PSI compared to my Accu dial gauge and both car TPMs.

    Several years ago, I moved away from my cool-looking but oversized (and somewhat inaccurate) CyclePump gauge. Now, both of my bikes have one of these digital Slime gauges in their respective tank bags.
    https://www.autozone.com/tire-repair...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

    This small gauge is compact, and probably more accurate than most analog gauges. The most obvious downside with this model is the battery isn't replaceable, but I've owned these for years and they're both still working fine.

    Personally speaking, I found inflating tires using CyclePump gauge connected to the CyclePump compressor a little awkward, so I don't miss that feature. But still believe the CyclePump is the best inflator on the market.

    YMMV.

    I have a few; one that is ultra accurate and expensive and then a couple of pocket digital pressure gauges that I check against the Longacre gauge that I take on trips.

    Mine is dead on, but 1.5 to 2 PSI is ok with me.

    I liked mine...but...had to take it apart once as it seized up inside, probably from condensation from leaving it in bike in colder temperatures. Now it leaks where the hose goes into the fitting that goes into the gauge and I have to hold it just right to get an accurate reading. I think these issues were due to using it with the cycle pump attached. It is designed to do this, but it was always difficult to do as those clip attachments would leak air if not held just right. I did use this quite often as I checked my tire pressure often and having the gauge attached to the pump made it easy, but I thought it would last longer.

    I bought one of these for each vehicle I have. I think the purchase was based on a recommendation I saw here in the forum. They are inexpensive, sturdy, and compact. No batteries required. They agree within 1 psi with the TMPS in my truck and RV. The TPMS in my GS always reads low relative to the gauge.

    I have a BestRest gauge but the spokes interfere with getting it on the valve stem.

    Have you called them to check out their repair service?

    A few years ago, my original CyclePump was well over 10 years old and started to rattle. Still worked but didnít sound right. Mr. BestRest replaced it with a brand new model for about $30, no questions asked.

    The design of the chuck has differed and changed over the years, and Iíve never had luck with any of the chuck designs having a positive seal-hold on the valve stem. Iíve found I need to hold the chuck on the stem when inflating, and listening to the motor change tone to know when itís attached correctly. A dodgy chuck is my only issue with the CyclePump, not a deal breaker.

    Love my KTM Racing dirt bike gage with hose, no batteries, every time I use it.

    KTM Racing with hose, 0 - 60 psi, with hold feature and a push button to let off pressure while on the tire or after every check.

    The gage has a nice rubber crash protector and nice swivels at both ends of the hose. It was expensive but I forgot how much a long time ago.
