Bontrager Mini Charger pump review£28.99

Miniature track pump

BikeRadar score3.5/5

Bontrager's Mini Charger is designed to balance the portability of a frame-fitting pump with the usability of a track pump.

It doesn’t have a gauge, but the locking foot makes this secure in use while its handle is comfortable and locks firmly into place when not in use.

It’s much easier than a smaller pump at getting tyres up to pressure, reaching 90psi in 80 strokes, after which it gets harder to use but still does the job.

Simon has been cycling for as long as he can remember, and more seriously since his time at university in the Dark Ages (the 1980s). This has taken in time trialling, duathlon and triathlon and he has toured extensively in Asia and Australasia, including riding solo 2900km from Cairns to Melbourne. He now mainly rides as a long-distance commuter and leisure/fitness rider. He has been testing bikes and working for Cycling Plus in various capacities for nearly 20 years.
