I use a bike pump all the time. Standard (cig lighter) electric compressors suck above 35psi, and the bike pump doesn't even notice. I just use the gauge on the pump, its fast and right there. Its more important that the tires are uniformly inflated than EXACTLY the right pressure, so the bike gauge is fine.
Its a bit of a work-out adding ~5psi to 4 tires, but it only takes about 10 minutes.
