This Air Compressor features a very bright torch that aids the use of the product even in low light.

The EPAuto is the most portable air compressor on this list. Weighs 3 pounds, meaning you can conveniently handle and move it about. It makes an excellent equipment in the trunk.

The power cord is pretty long, reaching about 9 feet while the filler is around 2 1/2 feet. We love the fact that it’s fast and quiet.

This tire inflator has all of the adapters included that you need to switch between car tires, basketballs or bikes tires.

This inflator comes with an auto-off feature, so you may not monitor the device in the process of inflating tires. It will shut off automatically as soon as it reaches the necessary PSI level.

What experts didn't like
It is not applicable for use on HT, LT and truck tires.
- Top Best Spec
No adaptor for wall socket.
- Car Bibles
Even though some 12 volt models can handle filling tires as big as 150 PSI it will take a long time to accomplish this. The higher the PSI required for a tire the more time it will take to fill.
- CH Compressors
Cannot be used on trucks because they require a higher pressure.
- Toolez
Does not support truck tires.
- Auto Guide
January 30, 2019 | Full review
Does not support 24-volt power sources.

However, it doesn’t support HT, LT, and Trucks.
- Top Review Pro
However, the pump isn’t as fast at a higher PSI. The screw-in valve connector is easy to use but will require you to take off your gloves during winter which isn’t ideal. And while we appreciate the carry bag, it is hard to fit the compressor inside.
- A Web To Know
At 3.8 lbs and awkward shape it is not highly convenient to store in the trunk.
- Wood Working Toolkit
It doesn’t work with certain tires.
- RX Tooler

The threads in the attachment port made from the very poor quality material.
