Pros: co2 inflation works okay
Cons: air pump, 12g only
"Beware, only takes 12g cartridges. Anything bigger will not fit.
As a regular air pump it's a last resort only as delivers little air and the universal attachment isn't that easy to fit. Without a hose you need to be careful you don't break whatever it's attached to.
For CO2 it works okay. For those with leaks, make sure you follow the instructions and close the valve before inserting the cartridge. Remember that the attachment opposite the valve is where the CO2 comes out of, not the top universal adapter. Likewise when just using the air pump, close the valve to make sure air isn't coming out the CO2 hole.
It all works, but it's got limits and more expensive than better alternatives."

Pros: it's small i suppose
Cons: unreliable, poor value, small cannisters, cannisters leak and are too small, poor airflow control, no instructions
"This is a terrirble product - both times I have relied on it it has let me down - the cannisters leaked, and the control valve does not seem to properly restrict airflow. The cannisters themselves don't hold enough air to be useful. The very worst thing about it is the fact it would give you a false sense of confidence as you would think you were covered in the event of a puncture - avoid like the plague."

"This has got to be the most useless pump i have ever used. None of the valves work and it has the small 12g Co2 bottles, no use to anyone. Do yourself a favor and buy ANY other pump."

Pros: i can take it back.
Cons: evry last feature.
"Neither valve attachments work correctly. Construction is poor and the small plastic ring that flails around when trying to use the absolutely useless hand pump is incredibly annoying.
Spend the same money and buy a
Genuine Innovations Ultraflate Plus Inflator.
