    Only need for costco waterpump, want something that could plug into car cigarrette lighter or truck bed outlet.

    Only other use would be to fill an inflatable pool toy with a Boston Valve to a very low pressure. If it could do both that would be great, but not essential. I can get a pump for the pool toy for $13. Not sure what to do about costco. I just inlfate waterport now with a bike pump, takes a long ass time.

    I like my viair 88p. Works decent and is sort of inexpensive for what it is. I have a ten dollar slime compressor that is tiny that I keep on my motorcycle that isn't terrible.

    Thirty dollars is well on your way to getting an even more convenient cheap air compressor that will inflate your tires as well. And that manual pump is a moving part, so can't claim it won't break as well. But, beauty is in the eye of....

    This little kobalt is great. I used it for years before I had OBA. Still use it from time to time. Set the desired pressure and hit the start button. Plugs into standard outlet or lighter plug.

    Buying from Costco it comes with the pump cap. At least it did last year.

    Use use any generic Boston valve adapter like this one
    https://www.amazon.com/SportsStuff-10-1010-Compressor-Adapter/dp/B0000AZ929

    If you want something with a little more “oomph”, that can also do tires, then this is about the best cheap option.
    https://www.amazon.com/Inflator-Por...words=MF-1050&qid=1555374377&s=gateway&sr=8-1

    The above has become very popular over the years due to its solid performance over others in this “class”, it can be had under a variety of brand names, but pep boys usually sells them for about $50.
    Google MF 1050 compressor and you’ll find a ton of information. But for what you originally asked the Slime is a very decent option. (Depending on the size of the Pool Toy)

    This is good for car tire inflation as well? Safe for use?

    @JacksTurdGen , I second this post about the MF 1050. I purchased it as the MV-50 for my old pickup. Used it to compress an air tank to run air horns. Removed it from that truck and installed in my Tacoma. Used it for the air horns again, and to air up ATV tires and my truck tires.

    Best place to buy is usually your local autoparts store. o'reilleys, napa, autozone, whatever.

    Harbor freight has their version of the mf 1050. I've had mine for 12 years. I don't use it often but it has worked every time I've needed it.
