It's about time somebody came out with one of these--hats off to Wagan! It's small, light, inexpensive, and needs only a 12-volt power supply. This is what we want to have in the car the next time the stars are dim and the tire goes flat. It even has a built-in light. As small as it is, the Wagan will fully inflate a vehicle tire as well as the little stuff like basketballs, beach floats, and inflatable boats. We love the peace of mind it offers and the minimal space it takes up in the trunk. Its 14-inch hose even stores right inside the unit. We doubt you'll be able to find a more versatile compressor for the price. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste

I RATE A+++++++
Slow but reliable
Got tired of local gas stations with broken air pumps, so I got this little dude. It works surprisingly well, although very slowly. It took about 3 minutes per tire to inflate from 26 to 32 psi on my car. If it were faster, it would be a five-star product.
As they say, you get what you pay for. This unit worked only once and now will not inflate above 30 psi. Purchased beyond 30 days, so Amazon.com will not accept the return. [$$$] down the drain.
Compressor broke first time I used it!
I used the compressor only once and it would not go over about 20 psi. Then it shorted out after running for about 5-10 minutes. I returned it for a refund.
Good for Starting Fires
First time and only time I used it was to inflate a motorcycle
tire. The bike was idle for 2 years and had 10 pounds in the
tire. When I turned it on, it danced and bounced around
on the driveway because it is so light. Had to hold it against
the tire with my foot so it wouldn't flip over from jumping
around. It sounded like it was working hard when connected.
I connected it for about 30 seconds, then tested
pressure with a tire gauge. Only got a pound more.
Reconnected for 1 minute, got up to 12 pounds.
Hmmm...This is going to take a while....
I figured I let it run for a few minutes while squeezing and
watching the tire carefully. After about 3 minutes I look down
at my feet and see it belching smoke. I quickly unplugged it
before flames. This thing is way too cheaply made.
Piece of junk
Worked twice, then just stopped working. Blew fuses on cigarette lighters in both our cars. Yes you get what you pay for. Think. You can pick up a blow dryer for your hair for about same price; and it will work for a few years, For this product to just stop working after a few uses indicates this manufacturer has no qualms about selling defective merchandise.
Amazon should dump this product.
