Strength:

Does schrader no probs at all. Might take a wee while but lightweight and brilliant for the backpack

Weakness:

Just try doing presta with it. It's blooming useless.

Brilliant for schrader only. Avoid if you want a dual pump.

Strength:

Small, light weight, compact, ease of locking to the stem.

Weakness:

Not as quick as I'd like, but only an air compressor will do that.

I've never used a mini pump before, but I'm glad I bought this one. It's easy to carry, does the job it's intended for, and, so far, does it well.

Strength:

Compact, lightweight, efficient, comfortable handle, and the handle folds and securely locks the pump closed so it fits in my Camelbak easily and stays compact. Durable, been in my pack through several good crashes and still works fine.

Weakness:

Could be a little faster to air 29er tires to full pressure after changing tubes on the trail...but that would make it a larger/heavier pump thus defeating some of it's benefits. Not a big deal, still pumps up fine....just nit-picking.

Great pump, especially for the money!!! Lighter weight than my Innovations Ultraflate Plus with just one CO2 cartridge (and I used to carry 4 cartridges.) CO2 barely gets 29er tire up to riding pressure and can only carry so many cartridges. If you get a slow leaker, or you and your buddies get a couple flats on a ride, a pump is alot better than any CO2 inlfater!!! Pump locks on to the valve stem quickly and easily, inflates pretty quickly from fully flat to riding pressure. Comfortable folding handle locks the pump rod in and tightly to the pump body. Buy this pump! :)

Blackburn Mountain Air (another good compact hand pump) and Genuine Innovations Ultraflate Plus (CO2 inflator.)
