12v compressor

Any suggestions for a 12v air compressor that can hit 65psi and is worth anything? Currently tote around a pancake compressor but its heavy and requires 120v.

I can tell you what I just started using a few months ago, but can't vouch for it's longevity yet. I have several cordless 18 volt Ryobi tools that were purchased from Home Depot. Ryobi also makes an air compressor that uses the same batteries. I have used it several times with no problems and what I liked is that you can set the air pressure you want for the tire on the digital scale, then the compressor shuts itself off when it reaches that pressure in the tire.

It also does good in putting air in inflatables at the lake. It's also light, small, and portable. You just have to make sure you have charged batteries.

As I said, it was cheap to purchase since I already had a few batteries for the other tools, but may not be if you have to buy a dedicated battery/charger to go with it.

The Slime-brand one I bought at O'Reilly Auto draws nearly 15 amps (12v) for probably 10 minutes to air up all my tires. I'm surprised that a battery-operated unit would be able to handle it.

I have a 115V / 12V Black and Decker Air Station with an accurate (!!!) gauge and auto shut-off. Its a neat little unit, but it is a little noisy.

I bought a slime brand inflater at Wally World. Seems like in the $25 range.
Plugs into cigarette socket. I've inflated skinny bike tires that need 80 PSI
with it. I use it to inflate my air bags too.
It would take a while to inflate a tire but it would do the job for not much
weight and not much money. It's about the size of a kid's lunch box.

If you're wanting to inflate large water toys get a special low pressure hi
volume inflater just for that.

I carry a Masterflow Tsunami that works awesome. If you google them a lot of off-road guys carry them.

Here is a link to the model I have - mf-1050 MasterFlow Tsunami MF-1050 12 Volt Portable Hi Volume Air Compressor | Product Details | Pep Boys

Here is their whole selection. I'd love to get the MF-1089.

That said I've been thinking about picking up the Kobalt linked to above due to the dual power and the set it and forget it operation.

I have a Craftsman battery compressor just like WMTIRE has that works really good, excellent to throw in a storage compartment and easy to fill up bike tires and truck air bags and it goes up to 200 PSI Just bring along your charger.
