Pros

This is a very high quality, mechanic grade, professional digital tire gauge. If you’re looking for the best, this is a very solid choice. What really appeals is the solid construction and protective military grade casing surrounding the digital gauge. The unit weighs in at 1.2 lbs so it’s heavier than a lot of other digital gauges you’ll find but that’s because it’s built with stainless steel and uses high quality components.

The bright LCD display features very easy to read numbers and a battery scale on the right side of the screen. There are no issues trying to view this display in low light or dimly lit conditions. Simply press the “ON” button and the screen lights up nice and bright. Use this same button to turn the unit off once you’re done using it to help preserve battery life.

Furthermore, the Dan’s Auto Digital Pressure Gauge comes with three (3) quality AAA batteries. They recommend changing these every 12 months but with the battery life indicator on the right side of the display you’ll know ahead of time if the batteries need to be replaced. This is a nice feature since many lower end digital gauges do not come equipped with a battery life indicator.

Also a cut above the competition is that this gauge will read up to 300 PSI. This means it can be used with a variety of tires – from those found on your every day commuter vehicle to large trucks and RVs. The gauge is also extremely accurate at +/- 1% which is a much tighter delta than other digital gauges I’ve reviewed.

Cons

Very few. However, much like every gauge I’ve reviewed there are comments left on the Amazon product page that describe inaccurate pressure readings. The specific circumstances which these purchasers experienced are unknown but improper usage could be to blame. Or, possibly, their gauge was faulty. Tough to know exactly. It’s only a small percentage of people who have left comments indicating an issue with the pressure readings and overall it seems the majority of people are satisfied.

Other negative feedback from a handful of purchasers was the lack of instruction. The above video, if you took a few minutes to view it, walks through in pretty good detail how to operate this gauge. If you were to purchase this gauge and needed some assistance, this video may help provide some insight.

Verdict

When purchasing this gauge you receive an e-book detailing several points regarding tire pressure. Not a bad bonus. Additionally, this gauge comes with two separate chuck ends: an angle and extended length that are easily swapped in and out. What’s more, the Dans Auto Digital Tire Pressure Gauge comes with a 100% lifetime guarantee! This is great peace of mind and is obviously a true sign of a manufacturer standing behind its product. For these reasons as well as the overall quality the Dans Auto Digital Tire Pressure Gauge is a recommendable product.

The Dan’s Auto Digital Tire Pressure Gauge 300 PSI is on the best digital tire pressure gauge list
