You’re not an adult until you have an inflator in the garage that you can use to pump up tires, soccer balls and other random inflatables. If you’re still hand-pumping or carting your stuff to the gas station, I’ve got a deal that’s about to make your life significantly more convenient. Right now, Home Depot has a Ryobi P737D cordless power inflator bundle for $69. You get the inflator, a 2.0-Ah battery and charger for 30% off the regular price of $99.
This pistol grip inflator can tackle inflatables up to 150 psi, and it has a digital display for accurate pressure. It also lets you get into tight spaces and inconvenient corners, thanks to a 20-inch inflation hose. But my favorite feature is simply that this inflator is part of the Ryobi One Plus family of tools — the battery and charger are interchangeable with all the other gadgets in the Ryobi lineup, including drills, saws, sanders, and countless other gadgets. I have my share of Ryobi tools, and I love the fact that the batteries are completely cross-compatible and swappable.
What’s your take on power inflator tools? Personally, I find them genuinely indispensable, but I know not everyone agrees — in fact, I thought pretty much everyone owned one until Cheapskate Rick mentioned that he does not. So, an essential or a luxury? Sound off in the comments, and please let me know if you agree with me or Rick.
