Don’t want to get stranded because of low air in your tires? Carry the 88P portable air compressor with you at all times. It can inflate up to 33-inch tires using a direct battery connection with two battery terminal clamps. It also works great when you need to top off the air in the tires every now and then.

Pressure

Considering its size, the performance of the 88P is amazing. It apparently delivers 1.47 cubic feet per minute of compressed air at 0 PSI, but this data is slightly confusing as the amount of air a compressor is able to move around falls off as the pressure increases.

At 30 PSI, the air compressor is able to generate 1.25 CFM of air, while it manages 0.35 CFM at its maximum pressure of 120 PSI. It has a 45% duty cycle, so the compressor can operate up to 25 minutes at 30 PSI before needing to cool for 35 minutes.

Usage

The 88P is incorporated with a simple, directly driven piston. The large gauge on top makes it easy to keep note of the readings, but it is necessary to note the compressor has to be off to get an accurate one. For better stability, rubber feet have been incorporated into the design. The noise level is acceptable thanks to the heavy duty design long piston stroke – it prevents loud and violent vibrations.

An integrated heat sink keeps the compressor cool. The 20-amp draw means you can’t plug it into any accessory ports; rather the power is drawn directly from the battery. An inline 20-amp fuse adds an extra layer of protection to your vehicle’s electrical system. Air hose and power makes it convenient to reach all four air tires.
