It plugs directly into the car and with its flexible hose, can be used to refill each tire all the way around the car.

No Customer Reviews Anywhere!

You can quit searching for Air Dragon customer reviews as there have been 0 posted online. The reason for this is that the product is too new! No one has received their ordered Air Dragon yet. The official sales page states that it MAY take 3-6 weeks for delivery. The word 'may' is extremely important as it could take 1 week, or 100 weeks. When the word "May" is included you can pretty much disregard the whole stated time frame.

Features

  • Compression

    Air Dragon functions as a handheld tire inflator. This product boasts of having powerful micro compression which gives consumers peace of mind while they are on the road, never fearful that they will need to call expensive roadside assistance.

  • Plug in

    This compressor plugs into the 12V outlet inside of a car and fills up your tires where ever you might be. Due to this fact, the manufacturers have claimed that it is the fastest and easier way to keep your tires full.

  • Ergonomic Handle

    It has an ergonomic handle which makes it comfortable to hold.

  • Easily Read Gauge

    The gauge indicating tire pressure is easy to read.

  • Flexible Hose

    The pressure hose is flexible and therefore can be easily maneuvered around the car as you reach each tire.
    Said company maintains that use of this product helps you to inflate your tires with confidence.

  • Stored in the Car

    The size is small enough that it can be stored inside of a glove compartment or in your trunk. This ensures that if ever there are tire incidents on the road, you can easily reach the Air Dragon and fill up.
    It can be used to top off your tires on a long road trip, or buy yourself time before you can get a replacement.

Pros

  • Cost

    The cost of this device is forty dollars with another ten in shipping. However, if you want to purchase two of them, you have to pay that and an additional twenty in shipping.

  • Adapter Kit

    When you order this tool, you also get the home adapter kit. This makes it possible to use this product to refill almost anything around your home including the tires on your bicycles, tires on your strollers, sports balls, or pool parts.

Cons

  • Refund Means Losses

    There is a thirty day refund policy which does not include the shipping and handling. This means that if you bought two of the compressors and want to return them, you lose ten dollars for the first shipping with another twenty for the second shipping.

  • Fraudulent Company Charges

    This product is manufactured by Telebrands, which is one of the longest running as seen on tv brand names out there. However, in spite of a long reputation for many items sold, this company has a bad reputation among consumers for bad customer service. Moreover, it has a reputation for poor quality items , and things which fail to work as they were advertised. What’s more, recently Telebrands settled a lawsuit for violating the Consumer Fraud Act. While they did not admit to wrongdoing, they did settle for paying New Jersey Attorney General five hundred and fifty thousand dollars. In all honesty, companies do not settle for fraud cases to the tune of such a high fine unless they know they did something wrong. They do not settle for that high a fine unless they know there is evidence to prove it, and they don’t want to go before a jury where that information would be publically exposed. Telebrands has a C- BBB rating, and as of 2016 they have 955 closed complaints which relate to the fraud charges mentioned above. In reality, even if the compressor is decent, there are just as many decent alternatives out there. What's more, these alternatives are not manufactured by a company with such a poor performance record or such serious allegations of fraud lodged against them. It might be well worth it to invest in an alternative compressor if you are conscientious of unethical behavior and don’t seek to reward it with your monetary purchases.

How It Works

Traditionally, air compressors like the Air Dragon work by way of using a piston. This piston draws air into the chamber. The air inside is then routed inside a holding tank. With more air routed to this holder tank, more pressure builds up inside. As soon as the pressure inside is high enough, it can be used to inflate your tires. This product lacks the traditional holding tank, and instead works by drawing outside air in to itself and routing that air through the flexible hose into the car tires.

How it's Different from Competitors

There are many other handheld tire inflators out there, all of which function the same way but are not identical. Two of the key differences between this particular brand and other brands is the amount of power it has to offer and the price.

Most handheld inflators use interchangeable battery packs to give them power. This means they can be used in a cordless fashion. Cordless options like this are similar to the way handheld drills have separate rechargeable battery backs that attach to the bottom to give them power. With battery packs users get 19 volts of power, which is the same as 200 psi. The Air Dragon has a 12V battery attached to a cord, which you plug into your car’s cigarette adaptor. Resulting claims state that it will give users 30 PSI in about one and a half minutes.

Pricing for the Air Dragon is slightly less than other handheld air compressors out there, and if you opt to invest in the buy one, get one free option it is considerably better in price.

Save Money

The cost of the Air Dragon is much less compared to regular roadside assistance programs that charges you on a monthly basis or charge a one-time tire fill up fee. That said, the costs saved by avoiding roadside assistance or traveling to a local gas station to try and add air outweigh the cost of this product. Of course, if your tire is so punctured that it won’t even hold air, then this item will not help you. Instead you will need to change the tire.
With the extension pack that you receive with your purchase, you also save money on other pumps that you would need around the house like a bike pump or ball pump. Instead you can use one product for all of these actions.

Save Time

If you find yourself in a roadside, tire emergency, calling for roadside assistance or taking your car to the nearest gas station with air pump can be time consuming. Instead, having this tool in your car makes it simple and fast to read the tires, make sure there are no holes, and then fill up. If you do have a hole in your tire, this tool can be safely used to regularly refill until you are able to get your tire replaced. This saves you time when you need it the most.

Length of Power Cord

The power cord which plugs into a car's 12 Volt outlet is 14 feet long. This is surly long enough to reach all tires of any standard vehicle. Of course, if you upgrade to the deluxe battery pack you won't have to worry about the cord length.

How to Change or Cancel Orders

Ordering from As Seen on TV items from Official Sales pages can be confusing. If you make a mistake, contact their customer service representatives at: 1-866-454-6490. (post a review on the support you received afterwards)
To find your order the representative will require your:
- Phone Number
- Email Address
- Last Name
- Zip Code

Because orders are only updated on the Customer Service Database every 24 hours, you will need to wait 24 hours after placing your order before a rep can assist you in any way.

Standard Vs Deluxe Pack

The difference between the standard and deluxe is HUGE:
The addition of 1 Carrying Case and 1 Rechargeable Battery Pack, will cost you an additional fee $19.99. It makes sense to purchase the Rechargeable Battery Pack because without it you will have a Air compressor with the capability of operating on Battery Power; however, will have no means to charge the battery!

The problem?
This would cost you $69.97 with shipping.

The Solution:
We feel this is a no brainer decision. IF you are buying the air dragon compressor it only makes sense to spend an additional $20 to have the capability of using the battery pack.

Want to Save $3.00?

After selecting to order the standard Air Dragon, go to your 'Cart'. You will see the option to add the Rechargeable Battery Pack and Charging Cable for $14.99 + $2.99 S&H. This will save you $3.00, compared to having upgraded to the Deluxe version. Take note that this will mean that you don't receive the Carrying Case.

Protection Plan (Not Worth It?)

For $9.74 you may purchase a 3 year protection policy which protects from all defects in the materials and workmanship.
- Dropping it [Not Covered]
- Exposure to Harsh Conditions [Not Covered]
- Accidental Break [Not Covered]
- User Error [Not Covered]

How many times will you use the air compression within 3 years? An air compressior is essential to have; however, typically doesn't get used often. You should know within the first couple uses if there is a problem with the unit. Thus, is it really worth it to buy an extended 3 year plan that doesn't cover the typical way most tools get broken (user error).

Expedited Handing

We are weary of this additional feature due to the vague description: "Expedite your order to 3 to 5 business days."
- Why is there no guarantee?
- What if the item is on back order?
- Does this mean you will receive the compressor in 3 to 5 business days?
- What exactly are they expediting?
- There is no mention of a change in Shipping Method!

Yes, there is a possibility everything may be legit here, but due to their vagueness on this additional fee, we wouldn't recommend taking the plunge. Shouldn't a company process your order as quickly as possible anyways?

Rechargeable Battery Pack & Charging Cable - Get it!

We can't stress this point enough. Why would you pay $49.98 for a compressor that has the ability to be battery operated, but you do not have a means to charge the battery? If you are buying this product, the rechargeable battery pack and charging cable are not features you will want to miss out on.

Satisfaction 100% Guaranteed!

(It will cost you Shipping Fees)

Telebands is a great company in that they almost always guarantee customer satisfaction. This is no different with the Air Dragon; however, as with almost all items purchased online, you can expect to not be refunded the shipping fees.

This means if you do decide to return the order, you will lose your original $9.99 shipping as well as however much it will cost you to return ship the unit (estimated $15.00).

This means while satisfaction is 100% guaranteed, trying the device is not 'Risk Free'; as it will cost you a minimum of (an estimated) $25 if you do not keep the order.

Orders Not Received!

One of the top complaints for other As Seen on TV items is customers not receiving their order when expected. As this is a TeleBrands sold item, order Status can be checked online at TrackMyOrderStatus.com

Recommendation

If you can afford spending $70 on an Air Compressor, and insist on a battery operated capable device, then yes, the Air Dragon seems like a good buy.

Alternatively, if you don't need the portable battery capability, the Kensun was rated Best Portable Air Compressor on Amazon.

If you want something around the $20 range that will get the job done, see the Life Line AAA 300 PSI Air Compressor.

Poor Quality Product

This is the worst product I have ever bought. Looks good on TV as advertised. Bought one in March 2017 and used it to inflate 2 bicycle tires in March. Tried to inflate another bicycle tire in May 14, 2017 and it failed. Called customer service and I was told the warranty has expired after 30 days of receipt of the product. The customer service rep told me they are the manufacturer and only provide 30 days warranty. Can you believe that? If you are looking to use it as a furniture, then you can waste your money, else, try a better product. Poor product and poor customer service.

Don't Believe the Hype

As is the case of most products promoted on TV, they never perform to the level that they claim. The Air Dragon is one of those products. It gets the job done yet it takes much longer to air up a tire than promoted. Additionally, the pressure is inaccurate and over inflates a tad. The tube keeps coming out on mine while airing up a tire and the unit gets a little warm, the tip gets to warm to hold. I regret buying this unit.

DO NOT BUY

I bought this for a Birthday present and gave it to him. He couldn't even get it to work. I called the company and they said they would send me another one. I said no I want a refund. She stated that she didn't know if she could refund my money and put me hold hold for 15 minutes. She came back and stated they would refund my money but not the shipping. I think this is a bunch of crap. I could see if it worked and he did something to it but it never turned on. Don't buy this is a piece of Junk.

Jury Still Out!

I purchace the Air Dragon. It took about 4 wks to get, but they told me it would be up to 6 wks when I purchased it. So it came ahead of schedule as far as I am concerned. +1pt

I then took it out of the box and put it together, it was a piece of cake to assemble. +1pt

I then screwed it on the valve stem, never having opened the instructions. Set the air pressure on the digital display and pulled the trigger. Nothing happened so I pushed the center button. It came on.
But because I had not read the instructions, I started squeezing the trigger and the machine never seemed to shut off. More squeezing.

I finally gave up in frustration, put it away thinking it was a scam. -1pt

Today, I gave it a second shot.

It worked perfectly! +1

So, I have been able to restore some of the excitement I felt when it arrived.

So far it has a score of +2 out of a possible 3.

More to come.

OK, Round 2
Today I attempted to fill a tire on the car that read 22psi, my goal 32psi
I attached the Air Dragon, set the air pressure to 32psi then pulled the trigger.
( at the same time started the timer ). I did nothing else until the unit shut off by itself.
The air pressure was 32psi and it took less then 3mins to complete its task.

All air pressures were verified before and after with a good quality air guage.

So now I like this thing more than I did yesterday. +1point

3 out of 4 ain't too bad.

I am glad I purchased this tool, if it keeps working.
We shall see. Poof*.

Worst Product Everr!

I used this a couple of times with the car charger and both times the fuse in the cigarette lighter blew. I finally received the battery pack I ordered with the product. ( It was on back order ). There is no way to use it. The instructions say to unscrew the car charger at the in line connector but it's all one cord. There's no connector. DO NOT buy! What a waste of money!

I Regret Buying it!

Back in Feb / 2017, I purchased the Air Dragon system from the buyairdragon website. It is now March 9 / 2017. Yesterday I received a card in my mail that the product is "backordered". It wouldn't be sent to me for another 4-6 weeks. I called and cancelled my order. I then went to sharper image. Ordered the same type of product. They stated to me I should receive it within 7-12 days. That is more like it! I'm hoping these Air Dragon people completely cancel my order. After all it's there fault that I could get the product in a reasonable time. Right? If not. Does small claims court sound familiar? Anybody is looking at a port
Able air inflator, should check out sharper image.

Miserable Air Pump

More than 90% of all things advertised on TV is pure Junk, cheaply made and overpriced. The returns and guarantees are not worth the words it took say it. Why people keep buying this stuff without Googling them for complaints first, is a mystery. Who was it that said "There's a sucker born every minute". The TV stations know that most are scams, but there is too much money to be made, so the public remains the "Suckers".

I too was gonna buy into the Air Dragon. I talked to a friend to see if he wanted to go in with me and the bogo offer. I eventually read reviews and comments. Happy to say that I dodged that bullet. Telebrands has the worst track record and should not be allowed to continue staying in business ripping people off. Do not buy this product. There are too many legitimate products out there if you just take a little more time to look. Good luck fellow consumers.
Btw, shame on those people who try and rip off disabled veterans. Nick, u. S. Air force vet.

I've had a heavy duty slime air pump in my truck for a couple of years. It runs around $70. I use it about once a month, either on my tires or helping someone else. It comes with a generous hose extension allowing for a 26 foot reach, but i've never had to use the extension. You can inflate your tire in less that 4 minutes. There is no battery, it simply plugs into your lighter. I would trust a proven product the manufacturer is willing to put n the store over a television only product.
