We finish up our list with this model from DIYCO. Boasting an LCD screen for digital readouts and a multi-functional design, it is the most high-tech item to make our list. But is that enough to make it the best tire pressure gauge?
While the gauge may have the same cog style of design, that is where the similarities end with the rest of the products on our list. The main big change is that this is a digital style of a pressure gauge.
It also comes with a 3-in-1 adaptor for a wide variety of valve types. What’s more is that it can be connected to an air compressor, making this a multi-purpose tool. Additionally, it can measure a pressure range of between 0 and 150 PSI.
This is a very different tool from what we have seen already for two distinct reasons. Firstly, this is a high-quality digital tool, and when it comes to digital devices, the most important feature is the screen. We were really happy to see that the screen is big, bright, and easy to read. It is also backlit, so like the glow-in-the-dark gauges we saw above, makes it easy to read in low-light situations.The other thing we liked about this tool is the fact that it not only measures tire pressure, but it can also adjust it. The gauge can be hooked up to an air compressor, and the gauge has built-in controls that can be used to add or remove air while also measuring it. That is a really useful, 2-in-1 design that could save you a lot of time.
There are two issues with this device though. First off, it requires a compressor to be able to use all of its features. If you have one, great since it’s a really useful tool. If not, you either have to buy one or miss out on using some of the features that are built into this tool. The other issue relates to accuracy. The manufacturer claims it has an accuracy of within 1%, which is great. The problem is that unlike the tools we looked at above, this device is not certified by the ANSI, so we have no idea how accurate this claim is.
