Unacceptable at any price

After using this gauge twice, it wouldn't turn on. So I figured the battery was dead and I took it apart to change it. It wasn't the battery that was bad but the battery/switch contacts. Almost an hour later I finally got them to work properly. The next time I used the gauge, in the space of four tires it went from working perfectly to needing three or four tries to get an accurate reading to not working at all. Needless to say, I'm not a fan of this product.
Replacing Batteries - instructions
on January 4, 2015
I bought a Slime digital tire gauge at WalMart sometime in 2013. I don't have the package or paper that came with it. It stopped working so I opened and replaced the 2 button batteries that I saw (equiv to 357 type). Tip: when opening this unit, unscrew the screws, then flip it over, so you can see the display. Then open the case, lifting the front side up and keep the bottom side level, so you can make a note of how the 2 batteries are seated. But replacing these 2 batteries didn't work! Argh.
I am now happy with this gauge

This tire gauge is comfortable to use, doesn't leak air at the valve, and gives accurate readings of air pressure. I previously gave it 3 stars because when I turned it on, it would not stay on PSI but switched to a different mode. I sent an email to Slime explaining the problem. They came back quickly with the answer. I was depressing the on button for too long. I held it in until the PSI screen appeared. When I released the button, the gauge switched to another mode. Now that I realize this, I release the button as soon as characters appear on the LCD readout. When it's finished doing the self test, the PSI setting appears and stays. My bad.

I've had one of these for 5 years now and I think the battery is finally starting to go so I just bought another one. I drive a truck for a living and I use it regularly, sometimes at night so the light really helps. It's a great gauge, accurate and sturdy.

Not bad for under 10 bucks! Matches the pressure on my 3 pencil type gauges, but easier to use. Seals very well to valve stems. Holds pressure reading until reset by pressing it to next valve stem, or until auto-shutdown (about 1 minute with no activity). Better accuracy, and seals better than my $22 Accutire digital gauge. Light is a bonus at night. I've had this gauge several months and have used it dozens of times a week on two vehicles, and for experimenting with tire pressure on my new off road tires--zero problems. This is probably plenty accurate for most users, but I'm anal, and I'm shopping for a high end tire gauge. I'm curious to see how this will compare in accuracy.

I got this as a stocking stuffer for Christmas and it's great. It works so much better than the typical metal tube with the white stick that pops out. No problems whatsoever with it and I've probably used it on 10 separate occasions. I tested it against the Tire Pressure Monitoring system in one of our cars and it always reads within 1 psi so I would say that it gives a pretty accurate reading. I'd definitely recommend this product.
So good I bought a couple.

I bought one of these at a b&m store, that's brick & mortar, a year or two ago. I've used it a lot and like it so much I bought another from Amazon when I was buying some other stuff. It works well and seals the valve stem so the air loss is minimal. Excellent product IMO.

All of a sudden, both Meijer and WalMart stores in town carry nothing but this brand of tire accessories. The price looks good, so I bought three of the model 20017 tire gauges for myself and family members. I let mine site for a couple of months until I tried to use it. The lighted tip is nice and turned on but the unit failed to register any pressure at all. Thinking it was the battery, I put new batteries in. It proceeded to not light at all and still refused to register a reading on any and all tires in my vehicles or lawn tractors. The gauges I gave to my kids also either refused to light up and/or register tire pressure except for one which was so far "out of whack" that it is useless in accurately measuring tire pressure. These things are, literally junk made in China and are not to be relied on for accuracy even if they work! If you really want a good, well-made and accurate tire gauge I suggest you buy a Milton brand pencil gauge. They are old standards and can be relied on. The Slime gauges cannot.

So far, so good.
