Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Good product, solid, and holding up nicely.
Admittedly, I am not using this product for precisely it's intended purpose, but it is getting run for hours at a time as a bubble generator for my agricultural foam sprayer! I did pressure test it and it blows up tires on my Jeep (and the ones on this ATV!) and basketballs, football just fine. If you have kids and cars, it's a must-have!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Woodarich Husky 12V Inflator
Just bought this unit to inflate my raft. Read that it would also inflate my vehicle tires if needed. Thinking awesome, no more going to find an air pump when the tires get low. Plus the stronger PSI, I could inflate my raft in a minute or two. Used it today for my Trailblazer tire since it was getting low on air again. Plugged it in, worked like a charm. Watched my PSI climb up to 25. It was all great until 2 minutes. The inflator shuts off. Yep, got a whole 2 minutes worth of it. Within those 2 minutes, I was really impressed at how it wasn't a loud unit. Plus it was working like a charm. Now I'm debating to try another unit or just get a refund?

I bought the wall-plug version of this for my ex, and liked it so much I thought it would be great to also have the car-outlet version myself for trips, or if I'm parked on the street. I used it once to add a little air to my spare, and it worked fine. A month later I used it to top off all four tires, and it blew BOTH of my car-outlet fuses, which is a real pain and expense. Fortunately, HD accepted it as a return, at least, despite not having my receipt or packaging. I did also replace it with the wall-plug version, which I'll review later after I use it; I also bought a new pressure gauge pen to test the accuracy of the compressor.

It broke the second time I used it. I would not buy this unless you want to waste money.

Inflates my SUV tire quickly and it's not loud at all. Comes with a nice bag and long cable to go far with it. Great product for the price.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JohnnyRotten A little weak
I have two of these. The operation is reliable and reasonably quiet. I like the construction for the most part I can see that the rubber feet are going to be a problem since they appear to be made a little light for longevity. I expect they will break of if not handled gently.
Most compresors I have purchased in the past have an auto shut off when the dialed pressure is reached. This unit does not. That is a bad feature to omit. I really rely on that feature to not overfill the tires if I get distracted, and I always get distracted.
The operation is smooth but it is not a fast. I expect a faster fill from a compressor in this price range

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chibook inflater tip made of rubber
Since the part that goes into the tire is made of rubber, it failed after 1 month. It should be made of metal. Going to buy a new one....

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JAG Mechanically sound unit, but the Power cord is no good for freezing temperatures.
I use this product for inflating car and van tires. It's not a speed demon, but it had no issues filling 35psi, 60 psi, and 80psi tires. Mechanically, the unit gave good service over about 4 months of daily use due to some slow air leaks in my vehicle tires. The unit has rubber feet on the bottom that are prone to falling out if you get rough with it.
Stored in vehicle over the winter, the unit developed electrical problems. Traced the issue down to cheap, poor quality insulation on the electric power cable; it had become brittle in the cold winter air and had cracked open all along its length, shorting the unit out. The Cigarette adapter also developed a cracked body, again due to the cold.
I replaced the power cable with some proper outdoor cable, and installed a good 15A cig plug. This restored the unit back to good working order.
So, out of the box this unit is a fine buy for the price as long as it isn't exposed to freezing temperatures. If it is, you can expect cracked insulation on the power cord and subsequent electrical problems such as blown fuses and intermittent operation.
