Product overview

• Inflates a car tyre in approximately 3 minutes
• 30mm cylinder diameter
• Maximum pressure of 140PSI

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 I have just bought this Compressor, as it looks identical to a much more expensive version made by a major brand name. First impressions are good, it looks strong enough to do the job itФЗЦs meant to do. Connecting to tyre valve is very easy with the screw type connector, and the electric flex and air pipe were long enough to use on 1 side of the car at a time. The pump made fairly short work of pumping up my tyres, so no problems there. The only downside to this, and to be fair most other pumps on the market, is the air gauge. These gauges are not accurate, and I would advise calibrating it against a proper air gauge if you want to be exactly right, such as on a motorbike tyre. Overall great value for the money.

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 1 out of 5 by from Mine had serious issues I took it apart to fit a new power cable, and I then discovered horrible faults that made me wish I'd taken it apart when I first got it. This item should not have been on sale, it should have been withdrawn. 1) The end cap was only held in by 3 screws because the post had caught the blue wire and you can see where someone tried to force the screw throught the wire. 2) All 3 of the soldered points inside are very poor and have many wires not in the solder blob. 3) Now that I'm picking faults I can also see the metal handle has not been shaped very well and has caused part of the end cap to crack.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Build quality an issue, used this a few times to top up truck tyres to 5.1 bar which it was successful in doing, but with less than a total of 30 minutes running time it began to sound noisy and vibrated more than usual. Opening the end cover, movement was found between crank and motor shaft. To tighten the allen screw it was necessary to cut down an allen key to be able to re-tighten this screw. This screw will have to checked for tightness regularly to prevent damage to shaft and crank!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I bought one of these at the end of September 2011, as my previous compressor broke down after 4 years service, and repairs just aren't worthwhile. Initially I was pleased with the compressor, it worked efficiently and quickly, though as is the way with these items the pressure gauge was 'imaginative'!!! It has probably been used no more than 12-15 times to top up my car tyre pressures monthly, but using it a few days ago it began to run erratically and seemed to be struggling to actually pump up my tyres; a smell of hot rubber came from the motor, even though it had been run for les than four minutes or so. I am disappointed and annoyed that a compressor described as 'heavy duty' has shown such poor durability; it still looks almost new and has not been misused or overheated by overly long continuous running. On this performance I cannot recommend this item to anyone wanting a tyre inflator for light use; had I used the item more heavily perhaps it would have shown its lack of guts while still under guarantee!

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.

Hi, What is the displacement in litres per minute. Want to know if it will be great enough to seat kart tyres 

Asked by: Adw73
The short answer to that question is no, I have a fair experience with tubeless kart tyres and you need a lot of airflow to seat the bead which these don't have.

Is this compressor suitable for inflating Motorhome tyres up to 80psi?

Asked by: JanH
Putting up to 140psi into a bike tyre is a different proposition to pumping up a Motorhome tyre to 80psi!

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

Asked by: whoever
This heavy duty air compressor can inflate a car tyre in approximately three minutes, and can be used for up to 40 minutes continuously.
