I got this for out jogger but my husband said he would only use it in a pinch it would help keep the small front tire inflated but you have to work hard & for the larger rear tires, he said he would just go get a bigger pump. His conclusion was that this was not a good pump for our jogger stroller. I am returning this & looking into other options

I use this on my Baby Trend jogger stroller wheels. Small enough to fit no problem into the wheel and reach that stubborn little valve. Also small enough to keep in the small stroller caddy. And it does fit in all three wheels no problem.

This is a great tool to use. I originally left a 3 star review because I thought there was no needle, but there is. They placed it in the top of the handle. I wish they would've said that but it's there

This is an excellent pump for easy, everyday use. This past weekend, I inflated 3 basketball, 3 backyard just-to-kick-around balls, and 4 tires on my kids bikes in a little more than 5 minutes. It was super easy and quick. I used to use the electric air compressor that we have for filing the car tires, and that took forever because it is big and bulky and needed to be plugged in with extension cord. It was a pain and much more powerful than I needed. This portable one is quicker and easier to use and actually saves time.

The pump comes with a short attachment for the bike tires so you can get in between the spokes, and YES THERE IS A NEEDLE for basketballs and the like. The needle is tucked under a rubber insert on the top of the pump. Just pull on the little tab and grab the needle, or flip it over if you can reach out. It's a great way to package it because it keeps the needle with the pump and safe from being bent. The plastic wrap it comes in I'd study so you can keep the bike attachment and pump together. It snaps closed. Some and safe all together.

I originally returned my first one because of no needle. When the 2nd one came with (I thought) no needle, I figured it has to be me, and fumbled around til I found it. I highly recommend this. I got another one and keep one in the garage with the bucket of balls, and one in the car in case we are traveling with bikes. For the price, size and convenience, can't beat it!

I coached girls soccer for ten seasons, have done some boys basketball, and am now into youth rugby, and one of my consistently frustrating problems has been to find a compact ball pump that can go into a ball bag or a kit bag and emerge to perform on the spot to blow up a ball or two. Sure, you can lay out $20 or more for compact pumps that may or may not work, but how hard is it to make a pump that will last? My experience has been that the interior valve goes out, the mating between the pump and the hose doesn't seal, the hose breaks at either end, or the mating with hose fitting and needle either doesn't work from the start or loses its seal.

I'm happy to report none of these have yet to occur with any of the five pumps I purchased, and we're well into the spring rugby season. This thing lasts, and that's the key.

It's small/short, sure, and to pump a flat ball will take a good 30 strokes. But that's no big deal when there are no leaks and the pump is actually doing its job.

I'm so warm, so mellow and oh so content; I've found my compact ball pump home with Tachikara.

Besides being small and portable (easily fits inside ball bags or side pockets of sports bags), the construction materials on this pump are high quality. The pump feels very solid in your hand during use and the dual-action works so well that I am able to pump my basketballs in little time with a relatively low effort.

This pump solves the problem of lost needles as the top handle of the pump has a compartment for storing the needle. However, most people entirely overlook this hidden compartment and assume that there is no needle. To make matters worse, when you first open your new pump, a sticker is placed over this compartment leading many people to believe that they got a different pump or that there really is no needle. Simply remove the sticker and you will see the cap of the hidden compartment. The needle is hidding inside.

The only drawback is that this pump does not have a latch, a groove or a compartment for storing the hose and so it loses half a star.

I have both the Tachikara and the Nike (not available at Amazon) dual-action inflation pumps and this is the one I prefer. I've had it for over six months and it still performs without any leaks, just as when I first got it.

Bought 10 pumps to go with soccer balls for Operation Christmas Child boys, ages 10-14. And I’m really impressed with these “Made in Taiwan” products! Tried each pump out. And every one of them is a sturdy, well made little powerhouse of air. All identical, No flaws, No loose connections, No leaks. Even their snap-to-open vinyl cases are all in perfect condition! And the needle holder in the top of each pump is clearly marked with an orange sticker over the cap, “REMOVE STICKER AND CAP FOR NEEDLE”. Surprisingly low price for such a nice product!

I bought this pump for my son's Baby Trend Jogger stroller. It was very easy to use. The two big tires were completely flat and it took about 10 pumps to fully inflate them. Somebody said it didn't fit the small front tire of their stroller but I didn't have any problem pumping mine. I like that it's small enough & very lightweight to put in my diaper bag. I was hesitant to buy this pump because it's so cheap. Now I'm very glad I bought it.

Buen producto. Infla bastante bien y trae todo lo necesario para usarla sacándola del empaque. El material es de plástico, y aunque se ve de buena calidad, dudo que sea tan duradera como otros materiales. Sin embargo cumple con su función de manera adecuada. Trae una pequeña funda de plástico para protegerla un poco y que los accesorios no se pierdan. Es de buen tamaño y no es nada estorbosa (no te quita nada de espacio en la cajuela del auto).
El envío llego en la fecha estimada y en buenas condiciones.

This pump is absolutely perfect for my daughter's volleyball! Luv that the pin has a protective spot right in the handle of the pump so it is always available. Plus the pump does work both ways and it is just the perfect size to carry in her bag. Can totally tell that it is made specifically for volleyballs. Thanks Tachikara!

The pump stopped working after few times of use. I used it almost once a week and it worked fine. Just was hoping it would last a bit longer..

This pump works very well and is a lot higher quality than most other ball pumps. I thought the dual action was going to be a gimmick, but it actually works great. Would definitely recommend this pump to anyone who is sick of their low quality ball pumps breaking every couple of months.

This is a nice portable pump. Does a great job with with soccer balls for the team that I coach. The double action fills them very quickly and the needle storage in the handle keeps that small, but important part from wandering off. It's plastic, but it seems to be "good" plastic and I expect it to last, under reasonable handling conditions.

Me gusto el tiempo de entrega, sin embargo hacia falta la válvula para inflar los balones, si no esta incluida sería conveniente que se indicara al momento de vender el producto.

It is an amazing small powerful air pump. I inflated 3 ⚽️ in 5 minutes. This is my first soccer ball pump and I would recommend it. Even an 8 yr old can use it.

Only 4 stars because much smaller than I expected and not much air out of each pump when use inflation needle. Tried to inflate giant beach ball with it but took so long I gave up and used my mouth. Definitely for ball/tire air top ups only.

I bought this pump for my soccer ball. Works great! It has a compartment for the needle, which is amazing because I keep losing mine.

Pump is pump built nicely and very easy to use. Will keep using for years to come.

Quick to use
Storable needle!

It didn't come with a needle and isn’t usable without it. They should include a needle or make it known that you need to buy it separately

excelente calidad, justo lo que buscaba, tamaño ideal para transportar en mi mochila

Works well and convenient.

Perfect small pump. We have been using it on the soccer ball and rubber ball and works just great.
