Walking around with tires that lack pressure is a huge danger to your safety and that of others. That’s when tire pressure gauge or air pressure monitors come into play, which helps you keep everything under control. At least that’s what we thought when we acquired our first model, although we got a fiasco. The problem was that we had a motorcycle with a side exit valve with which the device was not compatible.
In our second attempt, we decided not to go for such an economic model and ended up buying a higher priced one thinking that it would be of better quality. Unfortunately, the device began to fail after a short time and just gave very wrong readings.
In the end, we became so frustrated that we decided to do our research until we found a cheap model with very high quality and excellent precision.
The best tire pressure gauges
What is the best digital tire pressure gauge?
This search resulted in the following comparative list in which we analysed the five best manometers in the market. To achieve this, we take into account the most important aspects before making the purchase.
One of the first steps is to choose the type of device if it is one of those that simply fit the tire, digital or analogue dial type. In general, digital models are the most convenient and complete. Then it is also important to see the features included in the device. That is if the LCD screen is easy to read if the device itself is easy to handle and hold, if the measurements are indeed accurate or if it is waterproof, which can be very attractive
In the case of digital models, you should check the type of battery you need and bear in mind that sooner or later you will have to replace it.
1. Trehai Digital tire pressure gauge Meter 200 psi
We are talking about a high precision pressure gauge that has a capacity of 200 PSI. It comes with an LCD screen that shows the results of the measurements quickly and can be given in several different units: PSI, Bar, kPa and kgf / cm 2 . It is also easy to read and resistant to leakage.
Apart from that, it works with a system that adheres perfectly to the valve of the tire and not only serves to measure the pressure, but you can connect it to a compressor to inflate bicycle tires or even truck. It uses AAA batteries.
2. TACKLIFE TG01 Classic
Very easy to use
This is a classic tire pressure gauge model, which you simply have to adhere to the valve of the tire and press the power button. Then you will hear a beep, and you will see the measurement on the screen. It is more recommended for cars since it is designed to measure the pressure of the four wheels and has functions that facilitate their visualisation. You can also use it for motorcycles, only not for those with side valves.
It includes an automatic shut-off feature to help you save energy, read from 0 to 87 PSI and use a CR2032 battery.
3. Digital gauge Topeak SmartGauge D2
Really worth it
Users have placed this product among the best in the market for its high quality. Is that this model is widely recommended for its ease of use, as it comes with a head with Smart Head technology that rotates and has a simple button that allows air release. It also handles PSI, Bar and kgf / cm 2 units.
It has a very high capacity of 250 PSI, which is equivalent to 17 bar. It has a compact size and a light weight of just 60 grams. It is also quite resistant since it is made of fibreglass.
4. Ring Automotive RTG6
One of the easiest to use
If you like to use your pressure gauge comfortably, pay attention to this 360º pressure monitor that you can use basically in any position. It includes a digital screen where you can see the measurements quickly and accurately and also measures the depth of the tires.
The brand Ring Automotive was responsible for making it work with three lithium batteries and also gave it reasonably small size. It also includes an ideal protective cover to keep your tire pressure gauge in perfect condition.
5. Vingtank Pneumatic tire pressure gauge
Convenient and versatile model
This tire pressure gauge is compatible with motorcycles and comes with external sensors. It has a pressure range of 0-4.5 Bar / 0-65 PSI. It comes equipped with a screen with LCD technology with resistance to water and dust so you can use the device in any condition. For your convenience, you can also locate the screen both on the handle of the bike, as with a stick on the board.
It uses a battery of type CR1632, which is easy to replace and the sensors are easy to install. They are also quite light, reaching only 9.6 grams.
