Bosch UNIVERSALPUMP 18v Cordless Air Pump
Battery AH Explained
The best way to describe battery amp hour is that this is effectively the size of your fuel tank, the more amp hours your battery has then the longer the battery will last between charges. More amp hours does not increase the power of a given tool.
Battery Voltage Explained
A tool with a higher voltage than another is a bit like choosing an engine in a car, the higher voltage will generally mean higher power & performance. As with cars though a bigger engine does not always translate to better performance so it is important to compare the specifications of tools at different voltages between different manufacturers.
The Bosch PowerForAll Tool range is a range of tools you can buy knowing that batteries are compatible with all tools in the range providing they are of the same voltage. eg 18v fits 18v, 12v (10.8v) fits 12v (10.8v) etc. Please also note that 10.8v is compatible with 12v & vice versa as it is just a name change. Indego Lawnmowers also use the PowerForAll 18v battery but require a cover plate to be removed if changing.
PowerForAll has many advantages not least the fact that once you have a tool with a few batteries then there is no need to buy the more expensive versions with battery & charger, you can just go ahead & buy the much cheaper no battery versions!
So remember PowerForAll signifies complete battery compatibility throughout the range. There is however, one caveat to this, some of the very first older chargers will not charge the very latest batteries & a battery charger upgrade will be required if you have a first generation charger. All batteries fit all tools however.
As of 2021 Bosch has licensed PowerForAll to other manufacturers whereby batteries between these manufacturers will be interchangeable.
You cannot use Bosch Pro (Blue) batteries in either 12v or 18v DIY (Green) products.

I bought this air pump simply for the convenience of not having to queue and to pay to use the air pump at my local petrol station, with all the hassle which that involves. In that respect, it is an expensive nice-to-have, especially if you don't have other Bosch tools which use the same battery. But, as with the other Bosch tools I have, it is an excellent piece of kit. Its only downside, and the reason I have only awarded four stars for performance, is its "French connection". This is the same as the connector on a Michelin footpump I bought some time ago. The connector screws on to the tyre valve, and, if you don't keep a tension between the screwed end and the main body of the connector as you are screwing it on and off, air can be lost. In other words, pull don't push.
Very good easy to use not to heavy
Fantastic portable hand help pump. Good price and so my easier than the plug in compressors for cars. Easily dealt with doing 1 car and 2 vans.
Will become my "go to" pump since it has much better performance than either my double barreled footpump or 12v plug in airpump. If I was being picky I would have liked a slightly longer hose but it does the job. Also it's easier to work in bars rather than PSI because PSI is on the inner scale and the indicating needle is thicker towards the centre of the dial, but it can be read. Glad I bought it.
Excellent product and has the advantage of using rechargeable batteries which can be interchanged with other Bosch tools that I own. Comes with a range of adapters for different applications. The service from Tooled-Up was excellent from a competitive price to a quick delivery and I received regular updates on despatch and delivery. I would not hesitate to order from them again.
As usual the service from Tooled Up was 1st class along with the best value. I will be shopping in the future with them
I inflated my car tyres at a local garage the day before. When the Bosch arrived I checked and the readings were spot on. A couple of my wife's tyres were quite low and I was able to blow them up very quickly to the desired level. I love this tool and will check our tyres regularly now. It has all sort of attachments for cycles, balls etc etc but not tested by me.
If you already have 18v battery tools this makes a useful addition. Can raise tyres to quite high pressure as I needed it for Fiat Ducato at 80lbs/sqin. Use for 5mins, rest for 5. presumably to allow heat to dissipate. Easy to carry and use.
Nice design and does the job as advertised with easy to read pressure gauge. Only niggle is that the tyre valve is screw on, which gives a tight secure fit when screwed on but releases air out of the tyre as you unscrew it when finished. Have to overinflate the tyre a bit to compensate.
Ordering and delivery excellent. Arrived several days earlier than initially advised. Bosch Compressor is excellent. Really good having the battery attached thus making it very portable.
This is another excellent product from Bosch. Having batteries already it saved additional unnecessary expense. It is easy to use and performs really well. The pressure dial is stable and clear to read. Noise level is acceptable.
Delighted with the quality and function of the pump. Highly recommend.
Really good device. Its portable, versatile and powerful. I used it to pump up an air mattress and the tyres on my bike, several wheelbarrows and my car. Best of all it uses the batteries that I already have for my other Bosch cordless All-18 battery powered tools.
Speedy little pump.
You also require a battery and charger, to make this product work. Otherwise excellent.
Spot on air pump, and at a reasonable price. Shipping was quick, the air pump works great and coped with what I have put it through. I would recommend.
I thought it would inflate tubeless bicycle tire onto the rim and lock the bead instantly like an air compressor does. This is not the case here.

Q : Will Bosch 18v professional batteries fit this compressor
A : I'm afraid Bosch Professional batteries aren't compatible with the PowerForAll range
Q : Hi, will the adapters on this pump allow it to work with Presta as well as Schrader valves on a bicycle tyre?
A : Hi Brian, in Bosch terminology a Presta valve is known as a "French valve" (adaptor included) so yes you should be able to inflate both of these no problem
Q : Hi I need to buy it but got confused as you written case not included, what does it mean … is it box packed and sealed ? Is it new original and genuine
A : Good afternoon, This item is new and boxed direct from Bosch. It comes in a cardboard box.
