I've tried a few and read reviews but not found one I'm happy with.
I thought I had it but turns out the screw on ones are no good as they freeze on to the valve core and unscrew it when you take it off.

Genuine Innovations Air Chuck Elite - especially if you have a disc wheel. Otherwise, the Lezyne Trigger Drive works well on normal rims in my experience.

3.99 in Lidl when they had them.

These work perfectly fine!

I've had two of the GI ones and they both failed after about 12mths, the seal goes and they leak.

On the road bike I have this one:

and for the TT bike (where space is limited):

Both work very well (wear gloves!)

Touchwood, mine has been fine, and has held any spare gas in the canister after a few days, even weeks. But if you don't need a compact one for a disc wheel, the Lezyne feels more robust.

Thanks.

I went for the Lezyne Control Drive CO2.

Weirdly, both of mine failed after a long period of not using them, not sure if a seal dries out? in operation, they were great though.
