Electric bike pumps normally come in 12V-120V power and are relatively inexpensive despite their abilities. These are most suitable for someone who would like to save time, but they are not very small devices.

Be careful when choosing your bicycle tire pump. Some multi-purpose pumps will not be suitable for the lower pressure of a bike tire. Using the wrong kind could lead to an expensive blown out inner tube.

There are two types of electric pumps: high pressure, low volume and low pressure, high volume. High pressure, low volume pumps are designed specifically for bicycle tires and sports balls.  This is because these inflatable items have relatively small amounts of air inside them that are kept at higher pressure levels.  On the contrary, low pressure, high volume electric pumps are used for larger tires, airbeds, inflatable boats, and similar items that have huge amounts of air at lower pressures.
