Default tire pump?

Can anyone recommend a good tire pump and where to buy it? Thanks.

I think I got mine at AutoZone.
Not sure it qualifies as "good" in quality but have been using it
weekly for years.
Small black box with a cord to plug into the cigarette lighter has a
small rotary switch to turn power on and off.
Includes a round pressure gauge, but I use a separate brass dial type
gauge with bleed valve for accuracy.

Wal*Mart has a cordless one for $39.99. I assume the rechargeable batteries
eventually wear out, but I have always wanted to try this one and will when
my corded one dies. I hate having to unravel the cord and plug it into the
cigarette lighter all the time. And with the cordless one, I wouldn't have
to take my bicycle out to the car every time I need to blow up the 100 psi
tires. The one drawback is that the cordless is heavy.

Yes, that is the one bc. How long have you had it. Have you tried it up to
100 lbs for bicycle tires? Does it keep up? I was concerned that, as the
batteries age, it might not be able to get to the pressure or would take a
long time. Any complaints there?
