I've been using one of the Harbor Freight 12v compressors (part number 69284 or 61788) for many years. It has worked well for me inflating tires, tubes, and sports equipment. I wouldn't trust it as my only compressor on an African Safari, but it has never failed me over the past 5+ years. I keep one in my truck, and I'll be buying another for my Renegade.

Agree I have a HF power station never leave home without it. On a trip to the Grand Canyon we pulled into a rest stop to nap. I forgot the head lights were on DEAD BATTERY. The power station started the suv in 30 seconds. So if your going sand driveing get a power station on sale there $49. A good compressor will run at lease $29. And the power station comes with compressor, light, jump start, plug to run all 12 v toys and a DC/Ac converter if you need to power tv,fridge or a tool

Thanks so much I bought one of these on your recommendation and carry it around in my new Jeep Renegade Trailhawk

I had a little 100 PSI air compressor in my garage that plugs into the regular household outlet in the back of the center armrest. Lashed it down with a ratcheting strap to keep it from bouncing around back there on the trail and I'm done. A $0 air compressor solution. Photos attached.

Dragging this back up. I am surprised the inverter will power that compressor.

I carry this one in the saddle bag of my motorcycle (and a tire plug kit). I'm not sure how hot it would get filling four large SUV tires but it is nice and compact.

I've had really good luck with a small Husky compressor. Bought it like 3 years ago from Home Depot for like $20. Worked on all my cars and even has a glow in the dark gauge. I like that its super quiet, but will take a while to fill a tire from 30 psi up to 70 or 80 psi if you had to. But at such a small and compact shape I don't mid if it takes 30 seconds to fill up a tire.

30 seconds to go from 30 to 70 or 80 psi is pretty good.
