Product overview

• Powered from your 12V accessory socket
• Inflates a car tyre in approximately 3 minutes
• 30mm cylinder diameter
• Maximum pressure of 140PSI
• 3m power cord, 1m hose
• Can be used for up to 40 minutes continuously
• Remember to keep in your car for emergencies

This heavy duty air compressor can inflate a car tyre in approximately three minutes, and can be used for up to 40 minutes continuously. With a maximum pressure of 140 PSI, a three metre power cord and a one metre hose, inflating your tyres on the go is made easy, regardless of which tyre you are trying to inflate.

Only 30mm in diameter, in a cylindrical shape, and powered from your 12V accessory socket this air compressor is small and compact and can be kept in your boot or glove box in case of emergencies.

The air compressor comes with three different adapters, making this versatile enough to be used on sports balls, tyres, and even air beds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This unit performed well above my expectations and was very easy to use.It has a screw thread to attach to the tyres air valve which prevents air escaping as your able to switch this unit off and then remove the connector. It made short work of pumping up my tyres, the guage appeared accurate when checked with a digital tyre pressure guage.The only downside of this and any other d/c compressor I have ever used is you cannot disconnect the air pipe,but if you could this would prevent breakage where the pipe is attached to the unit. If this was sorted this would get 5 stars which is what I have given it anyway as on the ratings provided it is better than very good but not quite excellent .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Had one of these for a while now, and mechanically it's very good. As a bonus, it actually sounds like a proper compressor, unlike the smaller battery powered versions which sound like a wasp in a tin can. As other reviews mentioned, the gauge is inaccurate and should not be relied on. The problem I have is the power switch - a nice feature but it is under-specced for the motor current, and is now overheating. I suspect failure is imminent, and if so, I will replace the switch with a properly rated one, because the rest of the unit is well worth keeping. Good value despite the dodgy switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased this heavy duty air compressor some 3 months ago mainly for the rear tyres on my car when towing the caravan. Pressure increase needed is 30 up to 40 psi and this unit does the job easily and in no time at all. It is really quiet, when compared to others I have used, and I wish I had bought it years ago. Would recommend this compressor without hesitation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not a good compressor The pressure gauge on the compressor was inaccurate, it read 31 psi when the actual air pressure was 39 psi. This 8 psi difference is just over half a bar of air pressure. When you are pumping a tyre up to 35 psi this is a major discrepancy. The switch on the compressor could not be switched off after using it for two minutes. On the plus side it did pump the tyre up quickly and it was reasonably quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little compressor Just picked it up and inflated 2 flat 225/40/18 tires in around the advertised 3 mins per wheel so very happy. The unit itself feels solid and well built and runs quieter than my previous compressor. I can't comment on the quality of the soldering inside (as per the other review on here), I'm not taking it apart, if it fails I'll return it which after first impressions isn't going to be any time soon. The only niggle with the unit is the valve fitting is a screw on type rather than clamp on so you do loose a couple PSI when removing, not really a great issue just a niggle. Overall I'm really happy with it and would happily recommend one to anyone. In my opinion it can't be beaten for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent item and good value. Heavy duty indeed. I am hard to please but on this occasion hugely impressed with the quality and the design. It looks and feels like a much dearer item. It works well and would not be out of place in a commercial workshop. Bargain. I will be buying a few as gifts as I am genuinely impressed with this item.

Would I be able to run this compressor from two 105ah car batteries and if so how long would it run for?

How long can you run the pump for when you need to pump up all four car tyre,s. Other pumps have rubber washer sliding in a metal cylinder which when heated reduces the performance and then stops working

Am I correct in thinking you just screw on the default connector to the car tyre? Each time I do this I screw it on half way and my tyres just deflate from Opening the valve to around 20psi. What am I doing wrong? Any tips please

Asked by: Richard M
It is inherent with this type of valve connector that some air is lost during (dis)connection. However the Schraeder valve itself does not allow air to escape very fast then it has to get out of the adapter itself. Make sure the end fitting can spin easily on the end of the hose and it should take no more than a couple of seconds to remove the fitting. The loss should be less than 1psi. Overinflate slightly and use a separate pressure gauge to release any excess. Do not depend solely on the pump's gauge.

Can you set the PSI for the inflate?

Asked by: bobo the clown
No, you have to keep an eye on it and turn it off at the correct time.
