REVIEW – The VOGMA IMECHA inflator comes with tips suited for everything from truck tires to pool floats. IMECHA at the pool last summer. (Sorry.) There’s even a Presta valve adapter tip for road bikers who need it. Whether it’s flat tires, sports balls, motorcycle, scooter or bike tires, or inflatable mattresses, the VOGMA inflator can pump ‘em. And if the battery runs down from a long pumping session, there is a power cord for a car accessory plug which can power the inflator until you’re finished.

Design and features

The Amazon product description tries to build excitement for the VOGMA inflator. Hold on to your seats… “GEEKY TRANSPARENT DESIGN: Breaking the mold of traditional air pumps, our tire inflator portable air compressor cordless boasts a transparent machine armor exterior, allowing users to witness the internal structure and motor operation in action. This innovative design provides a mesmerizing visual experience while showcasing the pump’s advanced technology.”

If you’re looking for entertainment while you pump stuff, the VOGMA inflator is here for you. I usually just want to get the job done quickly and the VOGMA inflator did not disappoint.

The VOGMA inflator has a top pumping capacity of 150 PSI.  Everything I own that needs air is well under that limit.  I know some road bike tires take 160 PSI so, buyer be alert to what you need.

Once the target air pressure is reached the pump stops automatically.

Assembly, Installation, Setup

I charged the VOGMA inflator with the supplied USB-A to USB-C cable then went to check the 12 family tires.


Since we’ve moved into spring from winter, all 12 of our car tires needed a bit of a top-off.


I was done in about 20 minutes but wasn’t trying to set a speed record. Some electronic displays don’t photograph accurately. This car tire had 35 PSI.

The VOGMA inflator manual says it can charge devices with its internal battery.

I plugged my Pixel 6a phone into the VOGMA’s USB-C port, and it used my phone as a charger for itself. That USB-C port appears to be an input port only.


When I used the supplied USB-A to USB-C cable instead, it did charge my phone, if you can call it that. The VOGMA inflator charged at such a slow rate I’d call it a cellphone charge holder, vs. a true charger. It could come in handy in an emergency though.


I charged the VOGMA inflator after doing the family car tires and a few days later pumped 25 basketballs back to life at a rec center where I volunteer. After doing the balls the VOGMA power indicator still indicated ‘full’. Granted, pumping 25 basketballs from 4 PSI to 8 PSI was a low intensity task.

The instructions for the inflator advise not to use the product for over 10 minutes. After pumping for 10 minutes the instructions say to let it rest for 5 minutes. If it overheats, the directions recommend a 10 minute cool-off period.


The instructions don’t mention fuse replacement so I suspect I’d have to remove either the top or bottom covers to find the fuse holder. Those covers are held with four Philips head screws each.

What I like about the VOGMA IMECHA Inflator

  • Compact size
  • Wide PSI inflation range
  • Good battery capacity plus car cable option


What needs to be improved?

  • The nozzle clasp end has sharp edges


Final thoughts

The VOGMA IMECHA Inflator will take up minimal storage space and could fit in a car trunk or glove box to be ready as needed. I think it’s a great safety item to have in the car and I’ll know where it is when my athletic grandkids need their sports balls pumped back up to spec.
