Air Hawk Pro Cordless Tire Inflator Review (Air Hype!)
The Air Hawk pro cordless tire inflator should be called the ‘Air Hype’. In this review I’ll explain why you should stay away from this as seen on TV product, at least until they improve the product to match the infomercial.
There is a lot of talk flying around about the Air Hawk Pro Automatic Cordless tire inflator, but before we look into what users are saying let’s see what the infomercial touts about this product.
Air Hawk is positioned as a product most suited for certain emergencies and inconveniences, is that why you are looking at it?
The infomercial deemed the Air Hawk to be revolutionary; the new way to inflate tires, by pulling in outside air and then compress it into the tire. It’s cordless, easy to use, and extremely convenient and can help you out of a bad situation.
If you have ever experienced the disappointment of being immobilized by a flat tire, then I’m sure you would consider what the infomercial has presented to be a good idea.
Reputation goes a far way. It’s good to know that Ontel is the company behind Air Hawk. This is the company responsible for several other products advertised on as seen on TV such as Pillow Pets, Dream Lites, Turbo Scrub, Magic Pad and the list goes on. But at the end of the day each product has to stand on its own merit. Agreed?
The Air Hawk is featured as being most convenient boasting portability, rechargeable batteries, LED light, 5 nozzles for a variety of uses and a digital monitor for reading air pressure which can be preset to stop automatically.
Is Air Hawk a Must Have?
On a large scale compressed air is an integral part of most manufacturing process. In fact, it is so widely used that it is sometimes referred to as the fourth utility, after electricity, natural gas and water. Today the use of it is not foreign to us at all.
Can you relate to one or more occasions where you were faced with a need for a mobile source of compressed air? And the thing is such inconveniences are almost always unexpected, so a portable unit would definitely be handy for such small-scale applications. With this shared view in mind this product could definitely help you out of a bad situation.
The infomercial illustrated the Air Hawk pulling air from the outside and compressing it into the tire, something that we are normally accustomed to being done with a larger compressor with a pressure tank to collect and compress the air in order to harness greater pressure than atmospheric pressure.
For the Air Hawk to be able to do this, in such a compact package requires the use of advanced technology.
So the idea behind the product is practical and the technology used is notable. But while the Air Hawk may not exactly be a must have item, if it can pass the final hurdle then it should prove to be quite a handy tool in your position.
The Final Hurdle- Reviews
Now let us verify if this product is just full of air. Here’s what most the users are saying:
“..Was not what they advertised.”
“…..Obvious that this commercial was doctored.”
“Used it 3 times and the threads in the nozzle broke off.”
“This pump is extremely slow.”
“Does not at all come close to the infomercial I saw on TV.”
So an overwhelming amount of customers were dissatisfied, reflecting ratings ranging from 1 to 3 stars. The main problem had to do with the unit’s lack of power in performance and a less than adequate battery pack. More specifically, disappointment was echoed about charging the batteries for 3 hours and not being able to use it for more than 15 minutes.
Clearly the Air Hawk Pro Cordless Tire Inflator Review has proven to be quite a bit too flat to go over the last hurdle, but then you are still
left with a need for what it promised but I’m not going to leave you holding a bag of air. I would recommend that you “Go With Jo.”
