Goodyear i8000

If you are searching for a lightweight method to add air to your tires, the i8000 Goodyear is the best choice. To put it in a nutshell, this a small but powerful mini air compressor that is a direct drive inflator so it not only lasts longer but inflates tires extremely fast. These usually have less moving parts when compared to gear driven models.

Pressure

Maximum tire pressure is 150 PSI. The power cord needs to be plugged into a 120 volt outlet before you begin inflating. For convenient usage, it has a 6 feet power cord along with an 18 feet hose. It takes only 2.5 minutes (could be less) to inflate a tire, as it goes from 0 to 28 PSI. However, please let it cool for 10 minutes at 10 minute intervals of continuous use.

Usage

A rubber air hose, PVC air hose, and quick connect coupler is fitted into the unit, while valve position is maintained using a screw-on valve. To ensure there is no excess inflating and prevent under inflating, keep your eye on the built-in analog pressure gauge so you can constantly check air pressure. It is advisable to double check air pressure with your existing air pressure gauge.
Since the design is compact, it takes up little room on the workbench. Yet another notable aspect is the Whisper Soft technology that reduces noise, so the gadget doesn’t make you cringe each time you switch it on.

Conclusion

As of now it has received positive feedback, and according to customer reviews it works best on small vehicles and bike tires. Please ensure it isn’t used to fill air in truck tires, as you won’t get the desired result. This direct drive inflator effectively inflates just about anything. The PVC hose is durable and flexible, while the rubber-protected valve makes it safe and easy to attach to tires. Tired of looking for a gas station air pump all the time? i8000 is just what you need!

Inflates my bike pretty fast. Comes in handy while filling up tires of my ATV as well

Summary

A bigger, but not better, brother to the reviewed i5000. This device is not as portable and multi-functional, but lacks in power and maximum pressure.
