Compressor pump test: From bicycle tires to car tires, the Fischer cordless compressor ensures problem-free inflation. The compressor has four integrated 500 mAh batteries and an illuminated LCD display. The maximum pressure of 10,3 bar also promises a lot. Much air about nothing or is it a real highlight?
Fischer cordless compressor including power bank: structure and functions
With a price of 79,99 euros, the Fischer cordless compressor is on a par with comparable models from Bosch or Michelin. However, the key data doesn't just make the competitors sit up and take notice. Four integrated 500 mAh batteries are responsible for the energy supply. The maximum air pressure is an impressive 10,3 bar and therefore appeals to cyclists of all stripes. Furthermore, the Fischer cordless compressor allows you to set a freely definable maximum value with automatic switch-off. The blue illuminated LCD display provides precise information about the tire pressure and battery status, but it is a bit too small for our taste. The pump can be charged using the included 12 volt charging cable for the cigarette lighter or using a micro-USB charging cable. The extensive equipment package is rounded off by the option of using the compressor as a power bank.
The compressor pump in the test
The pump hose is quite short at 14 centimeters long. In connection with the non-rotatable valve head, handling the pump is not always easy. The 90° angled valve head with clamping device is designed for car valves; an adapter is included loosely for Sclaverand valves. An integrated solution would certainly be nicer here. The labeling of the power button is a bit confusing: This is not used to switch the device on or off, but to start or stop the pumping process. The Fischer cordless compressor can be switched on using the set button; the arrow keys next to it allow you to adjust the autostop function. After pressing the power button, the pump starts – and not too quickly! The time it takes to inflate a 700x23C tire at 4 bar is just 34 seconds; for 8 bar it takes 1:46 minutes. This means that the Fischer model is significantly faster in our compressor pump test than its competitors from Bosch or Michelin. Thanks to the powerful battery, several bicycle tires can be easily inflated.
