Buy “EPAuto 12V DC Portable Air Compressor Pump, Digital Tire Inflator by 100 PSI Automotive” Online
Ha! I love this little guy. When I say "little guy", I mean that affectionately. I’ve had a portable tire inflator since, well, I can’t remember when, but it’s been at least three cars. It was measurably bigger than this one and not nearly as impressive. I’m a big fan of avoiding gas stations for keeping my tires inflated. Beyond the awkwardness of the pumps, their effectiveness is sometimes sketchy. Now, with today’s tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), you get the reminder if you’ve gone too long without checking and what more perfect and convenient time to refill tires than on a rested and cool car outside your own front door. This does everything you would ask of a portable inflator: it’s fast, it’s efficient and it’s quiet. My old inflator sounded as if I was tearing up my driveway when I used it and it probably took twice as long to work. I saw some questions about the potential lost air while detaching the connecting hose and it seems like the pump may run a little over the stated PSI as protection for that situation. The automatic shut-off when it reaches the pressure you set is a huge boon, as I can rumble around in the trunk or work inside the car without having to constantly monitor the pump. I can’t say much about the carrying bag, it’s a silly little thing that’s likely to tear over time, but that’s meaningless when talking about performance and value. If I had any quibble at all, it would be that I don’t seem to be able to shut off the light on the pump. It’s not a big deal from a power perspective, just an OCD thing (why have it on in the daytime?). This is a great purchase at a terrific price. Check it out!

EPAuto 12V DC Portable Air Compressor Pump, Digital Tire Inflator by 100 PSI Review
I was going to buy a unit that ran on 120 V A. C based on the poor performance of my current 12 V D.C. inflator. Turns out my old inflators was twenty years out of date. I love the screw on connection compared to the snap lock on my old one. The noise of this won’t interrupt a conversation, my other one sounded like a jackhammer. This one adds a few pounds in under a minute vs. my old three minutes per psi. Very simple to operate and the storage bag is a nice bonus. Good purchase, just hope it lasts twenty years. -Read Reviews-

Works well! It doesn’t do the job quickly, but it’s a little pump. Takes a few minuets to go a few PSI. Four tires takes 15 to 20 minutes. The light is bright and works well. When screwing on the end, take your time as to not strip the connector. This pump beats laying on the ground at the gas station to fill up your car tires.
