jump starter/air compressor

Anyone take along a jump start/compressor combo? Seems like this would be a very good tool to have in case battery dies or tires need air. If so, what brand & where from. Looked online & they are available @ WalMart, Harbor Freight,etc. Really not all that expensive-may be money well spent.
Again, thanks for any info.

jump starter/air compressor

I have one but couldn't get the air piece to my inner duals because it has a 90-degree turn in it.

Now I carry an air compressor and jumper cables.

I have one, take it with me on every trip. Won't fill up a truck tire, but will inflate a low tire, jump off a dead battery. Mine also has a USB and a 12V cigarette lighter plug outlet. i have used it to run an inverter when we lost power at the house recently. Mine uses a standard 110V plug for charging. All about the same, just get one at Walmart.

I take both...but not in a combo set-up.

I have a VIAIR 400P compressor (VIAIR Corporation - 400P Compressor (P/N 40043)) and a Pilot Instaboost I bought at Lowe's (Shop Pilot InstaBoost 400-Amp Car Battery Jump Starter at I also carry jumper cables.

I decided the air compressor was a necessity when we had 2 flats on the same day and had difficulty finding a gas station air machine that could air up our tires to 80 psi. I also carry a small tire plug kit for use as a last resort.

Thanks for the replies. I think I'll just get one from Walmart. Looked at one one line & it says it's good for 120psi. Could come in very handy.

Like Lefty59 I always carry at least one Jump-N-Carry JNC660 1700 Peak Amp 12-Volt Jump Starter. Will start several dead batteries and has a 12v lighter outlet for great portable power. Also have a VIAP onboard at all times but keep a 150 psi pancake compressor in the bed when I can - with a 2K genny chained to it. Been there, done that - ending up stranded with inadequate tools.
