Accutire Gauge MS 4350B Product Manual
These are some issues as you mention Consumer Reports doesn’t check: Wrong on Consumer Reports. This is comparable to published stats from other digital and analog gauges that cost quite a bit more, so for the price this gauge is plenty accurate.
It’s also dirt cheap, and if you accidentally backed it over or if you had a glovebox meltdown I wouldn’t be heartbroken about replacing it.
If accuracy type is not specified, it usually means percentage of reading. Also, they are not durable if you leave it in your car in the heat of summer, it will drift off calibration or break the plastic.
It’s an excellent and unbiased source of consumer product reviews and ratings. The handle shape contributes to a good seal.
I had two of these air gauges I kept in the consoles of our cars. The package says it has a five-year warranty. I’ve read in another review that the three replacable batteries only power the light.
I guess it’s possible that the gauge is powered by another internal battery, but the gauge I bought for this review is still working so I don’t want to wreck it to find out! This is an especially user-friendly gauge that also happens to be especially cheap.
If you accjtire Consumer Reports and Amazon, the quality control varies quite a bit, you can get a dead gauge or one that dies soon. All information are really informative and describe ms-402b1 product very well. It turns itself on and off and displays the pressure clearly without any guesswork or thinking by the user.

Accutire Gauge MS B Product Manual – Accutire Gauge
With the battery dying in 5 years or so even if you take care of it, it has planned obsolescence. Also on the back are a sticker with what I assume is the date of manufacture and another sticker with sccutire FCC information for the device.
The rest of those “so called” testing agencies that accept advertising is based on opinions, which is worthless as the paper it’s printed on! That said, I do have a Husky digital gauge, but I use it at home with my air pump to check the accuracy of the pencil gauges, and unlike the Accutire, made sure it didn’t have ms-4201b unremoveable battery and that is resets when you remove the battery.
Posted by James at 2: This was really an interesting topic and I kinda agree with what you have mentioned here! James February 12, at 4: There are no moving parts to wear out. Hey, thanks for your comment. Click here for a how-to with photos of the battery changing process.
For a blog author to make the high schoolish claim that “it sucks” without any reason why, makes you look silly and not serious. Accurate enough and quick to use.
James’ Ordinary Guy Reviews: Accutire Model MSB Tire Pressure Gauge Review
I removed the batteries and tried to take a pressure reading but nothing. I would keep a more expensive dial-type gauge around in the garage and throw this one in the car so you always have one along. It automatically calibrates itself after taking a reading you’ll never need to follow the confusing “zero set” directions on the package.
There are several cons for this model gauge. This seems to go against the idea that the batteries only serve to light up the LED. You can actually replace the batteries yourself when they wear out. There is no on or off switch, the unit turns itself on automatically when you press it to a tire valve and shuts off a few seconds after displaying the pressure reading.
