Portable Air Compressor: Recommend

Can anyone recommend a portable air compressor that does a descent job of filling to 100psi?

There's a jump starter/air compressor/batter tester at Costco that I purchased for around $50. I've had it for a year now...it'll get you to 100 psi...eventually, but it will do the job. It's a lot easier to carry with you on trips than a small compressor. I figure it'll do the job that I need it to do and if it doesn't, I can return it to Costco...I love there return policy!

I have something similar now, but I want something that doesn't have me constantly waiting for it to get back up to pressure in order to top off the tires.
Didn't know if there is something out there a little faster/stronger more reliable etc.

My neighbor bought this last week. You could look at something similar. I think he paid $150. I'm gonna try it out on Friday before we leave for Spring Break trip. I'll let you know how it does then.

In my case I need a small footprint 12VDC air compressor to be used for airing up or topping off my truck and trailer tires as well as providing a positive air source to blow out my trailer water lines for winterizing at a moment notice since we do alot of camping off the power grid.

I use the Q Industries portable MV50 12VDC 150 PSI Air Compressor available from AMAZON. It fits in its nice carry bag under my truck back seat. I usually sit this on my truck tailgate and hook into the trailer batteries and then I can use the provided long air coil hose to walk around the trailer and tires...



I also use this air compressor along with the CAMCO 36153 Blow Out Adapter to blow out my water lines for winterizing. Being TANKLESS it takes more time to build up air which is ideal for blowing out water lines.

I had a couple of cheaper ones over the years but the Smittybuilt seems to be much better so far.

Do you want it strictly for home use or on the road mostly?

If on the road and home for just vehicles then I would go with a 12V compressor like this Amazon.com: Q Industries MV50 SuperFlow High-Volume 12-Volt Air Compressor: Automotive
for $50.00 or so dollars.

If for home use then I would suggest a Porter Cable pancake. They get to 130 PSI without issue and do a nice job.

I have both above and use the 12V on the road mostly, but the pancake does a nice job and can keep up decently.

The plug in 12V type can overheat and melt the plug so go with aligator clip style if you want that type.
