Going on a cross country road trip? Visiting your cousin out of town? There could be a myriad of reasons for taking a trip, but it is necessary to remember that your car tires have to be kept at proper pressure to minimize risks or flats or blowouts. If you are seeking a portable air compressor that inflates tires of most semi trucks without damaging tires of a sedan, the Viair 00073 70P Heavy Duty Portable Compressor is right up your alley.
It has a maximum pressure of 100 PSI and can fully inflate a sedan tire in less than 5 minutes (car engine should be running). The unit has a DC plug that is compatible with almost any vehicle’s outlet – rest assured there is no risk of blowing the outlet’s fuse.
Some tire inflators don’t have long power cords that make it difficult to reach all four tires, but this unit comes with a 16-feet cord a 4-foot air hose so accessibility isn’t an issue at all. This 12V device can be used to inflate tires of cars, bicycles, RVs, ATVs, along with sports equipment. The overall operation is quieter due to noise dampening technology. The size is nice and compact so it fits into the car trunk snugly.
The compressor doesn’t get heated easily, so you can dislodge it right away after inflating tires. Brass fittings on the unit enhance durability, while rubber feet at the bottom improves stability during inflation.
