What is the warranty for Slime Tire Inflators?

Slime tire inflators have a one-year warranty from date of purchase. Your warranty will be void if you abuse, unsafely use, improperly use, or use in any manner that is not consistent with the operating instructions. If you are dissatisfied, return with original proof of purchase to the place of purchase for a full refund or product replacement. If the store return timeframe has expired but the purchase was less than 1 year ago, please call Slime Customer Service at 888-457-5463 or 805-489-0490.

Can I run my engine while using my tire inflator?

Our instructions recommend that the engine remains off while operating our tire inflators. This is a safety precaution to prevent accidents. Some vehicles require that the ignition be in the “accessories” or “on” position to power the DC plug. Please use your discretion.

Can I convert my Slime tire inflator from DC to AC power?

No. We do not recommend that our 12-volt DC inflators be converted for use with AC power. If you are looking for an inflator for your garage or home, we recommend our 120-volt tire inflators that are designed for home use and run off of your existing extension cord.
