When I first started to use auto deflators, I used Stauns but ultimately went with this type that I prefer and like:

Currie Enterprises EZ Tire Deflator

oh yeah, that's what he had at accessory outfitters....doesn't that take 4x as long though? i tend to not have that much patience....because i must get to and over the rocks ASAP.
...but I might go back there for it...the guy there said he's heard people prefer it.

Actually it's a lot faster despite having to do it 4x. You're removing the value core during the process, so it's quite faster.

For what it's worth

You probably bought tire deflators by now, but I use the Staun ones and got them through 4 wheel parts. If you order from their website, it's free shipping to their store. The Currie one works too, but I like the Staun ones since I can put them on all four tires, drive to the trailhead and by then, they are down to the set PSI and change them back to caps. The only hard part is calibrating them at first, but once you are done, they are golden.

All the best-

No problem. I'm pretty sure that I paid double that when I got mine. But I've had mine for 7 years or so now.

I have the Stauns as well. They work great. I take longer to air down then anyone else, but I'm also letting out a lot of air compaired to others. I have one that keeps walking around on pressure. Might be that the Stauns are less accurate in the mid single digit pressures.
