We’ve seen a lot of smart products on the market and the latest is a compact smart air pump so that you’ll never be left with a flat tyre on your car, motorbike or bicycle and you can easily pump up the footy.
Created by UOMI, the smart air pump is slightly larger and thicker than a smartphone and weighs 400g.
It has a pressure gauge and buttons on the front and a vent on the back to connect the included hose to your car or motorbike tyre, bicycle, football or air mattress.
It is small enough to carry with you and ideal for topping up your car tyres, pumping up your bike or moped tyres and making sure the footy or soccer ball is also fully pumped.
It has a built in 2750mAh battery onboard that can be recharged through the microUSB port on the front.
This powers an internal bellows system that produces air and pumps it out through the vent and down the hose.
The front display displays the selected pressure while the U (unit) button allows users to select the units of measurement – PSI, BAR, KPA or kg.cm2.
All users need to do is look on the side of their tyre or ball to find the ideal pressure and set the UOMI smart air pump to that figure.
There are + and – buttons that allow you to enter the figure. The three buttons are pretty fiddly but it won’t take long to find your unit of measurement and to toggle to the right number to match what your tyre or ball needs.
Then once connected, press the on button again and you’ll hear the pump start up and see your tyre or ball inflate.
Now the device isn’t going to be able to completely inflate a massive 4WD tyre but it can top it up to get it to its ideal pressure.
Cyclists will absolutely love it because it means they won’t have to carry a pump and manually pump up a flat – as long as they remember to charge the UOMI smart air pump before they hit the road.
It takes just a couple of minutes to pump up a bike’s tyres and about a minute fully inflate a football.
It’s also small enough to fit in your car’s glovebox so it can be on hand when you need it.
And every football team manager should also have one handy so they can have all the balls pumped up without raising a sweat with a manual pump.
The included hose screws into the UOMI smart air pump and the other end screws on to your tyre and also comes with a combination fitting which includes a plastic nozzle to pump up an air mattress and a needle nozzle to pump up your ball.
The UOMI smart air pump is available now and is priced at $149.

VERDICT: The UOMI smart air pump is one of those smart gadgets that will prove to be really useful and get you out of a jam if you’ve come back to your car or bike to find a flat.
