Portable 12V compressors are small air compressors which run directly from a car battery.
Off-road drivers routinely change tyre pressures to adapt to the different driving surfaces, the correct tyre pressure for sealed roads will be generally too high for off-road use. Reducing tyre pressure for soft surfaces increases tyre area in contact with the ground and improves traction. A powerful portable pump is needed to return tyres to higher pressure when returning back to sealed roads.
This powerful air compressor is great for a variety of outdoor activities and emergency situations such as pumping car/4×4/truck tyres, inflatable boats, air beds, etc. Both models incorporate automatic thermal cut-out for added protection as well as cleanable air filters to keep the units free from dirt and other contaminants. Includes heavy duty battery clamps for secure connection to your 12V power source and extendable coil hoses for reaching those tricky spots. Each unit has anti-vibration mounting feet to ensure they stay planted to the ground and a foam grip handle. Accessory nozzels for pumping bike tyres, balls, and other inflatables included as well as a black carry bag.
Regardless of which type of vehicle you drive, owning a 12V compressor will make sense. Tyre pressures can be checked and maintained anywhere, anytime, improving the vehicles handling and fuel economy and ensure the maximum life of your tyres.
