CYCPLUS A2 is a 3-in-1 Device Combining Power Bank, Air Pump and Flash Light

Sometimes I come across some products that do not seem to make any sense. I had that exact feeling when I first discovered CYCPLUS A2, an air pump with a battery, and a flash light to top it out.

But as I read more about it, this 3-in-1 gadget may indeed be useful to cyclist, since it offers a convenient way to inflate tires, provides backup power for your smartphone, as well as a backup light in case the one on your bike gets broken for instance.

CYCPLUS A2 specifications:

  • Display to set pressure and check status
  • Buttons to adjust settings and turn on/off light
  • Maximum Pressure – 150 PSI / 10.3 BAR / 990 KPA / 10.5 kgf/cm2
  • Inflation Time – Car: 8 minutes; road bike: 2.5 minutes; mountain bike: 2 minutes; basketball: 30 seconds
  • Light – 80 lumen
  • USB – 1x micro USB port for charging, USB type A port for charging mobile devices
  • Battery
    • 500mAh @ 12.8V (equivalent to typical 2,000 mAh @ 3.7V power bank)
    • Charging time: 2.5 hours
    • Battery life – 7 hours of continuous flash light use
  • Dimensions – 18cm x 5cm (Ø)
  • Weight – 336g
  • Temperature Range – -20°C to 60ºC

Beside mountain and road bike tires, the pump can also be used for car tire, basketball, football, and other inflatable equipment.

The device ships with an air tube, a USB charging cable, converters (for balls, valves, …), a bike mount, some screws, a screwdriver, a velcro band, a carrying bag, and non-slip mat. The inflation procedure goes that way:

  1. Connect one end of the air tube to the air pump, connect the other end to the tire valve.
  2. Long press the POWER button to turn on the power. The LCD will display the current pressure.
  3. Pressing the UNIT button can switch the units (PSI, BAR, KPA, kgf/cm2).
  4. The + Button and – Button are preset buttons for adjusting the target pressure. Long press them can adjust the target pressure quickly.
  5. Pressing the POWER button will start inflating. Pressing it again will pause/continue. It will stop automatically when it reaches the target pressure.
  6. Quickly remove the air tube from the tire to prevent air leaks.
  7. The air pump will not work when the target pressure set is lower than the current tire pressure.

CYCPLUS A2 can be purchased for $50 and up on Amazon or eBay. CYCPLUS also showcases some other “smart accessories” for bicycles – such a GPS enabled bottle holders, smart tail lights – on their website.

  1. Here in UK, those C02 cartridge tyre inflator devices are popular, going off the amount of empty cartridges on the footpaths and road sides.

    1. You should contact your seller to see if a return is possible. If you bought online, some websites have a 6-month warranty, but you often need to pay for return shipping yourself. That device is a bit different though, because it comes with a battery so it may not be possible to return it unless you know which paperwork to use to export batteries.
