$80 and only takes 100 pumps
If you have an OCD mind like mine, you'll know that any standard minimpump takes about 300 strokes to get a road tire to 120psi. This ipump is less than 1/4 the size of a standard minipump.... I'll let you do the math on the number of strokes to full inflation. (p.s....it's a lot!!)

Actually it would be quite easy to reach 150, 200, even beyond that with such a small volume of air pumped. The only drawback is that getting to even 150 psi will take you close to 1000 strokes.
claiming you could get 200psi is just hypothetical nonsense.
Regarding the ipump, honestly the marketing is exagerated and although it may work for some 90-100 psi the money I was considering to throw on this thing I ended up spending on a Barbieri NANA (29g) and also a Lezyne Road Drive for my other bikes.
Did the inventer ever say that it is as easy to use as a compressor you have at home?
It is an emergency solution only fir on the way. For example i take it on my rides together with a Schrader adaptor. It is good for me to fill the tire enough to cycle to the next gas station and refill it properly there.
Mine came today and has a weight of 22.4g, about what i expected.
Before i used the barbieri nana. This one has a weight of 31.8 and was good enough.
The ipump micro works even better, has a longer length of pushing ( i hope you understand what i mean) of about one inch and can produce more power like that. And the hose is really a big benefit comparing with the barbieri nana.
Once again: dumb is the one who expected too much. But the inventor is definitely not dumb. As he adverts it as an emergency solution
