Total Cost Breakdown
- Fill Lots of Things
This multipurpose device can be used to inflate things like bike tires, car tires, bowls, toys, and more. Three different nozzles are included in your order to help you adapt the unit to inflate multiple items , all three of which are stored conveniently on the item itself at the base.
- Easy to Use
To use it you literally attach the nozzle to the item you want to inflate and then press the button. A digital read out will show you the current pressure and you can set the device to shut off once you reach a desired pressure. The look and feel of the unit is almost exactly the same as a cordless drill all the way down to the handle and the recharging battery unit located at the base.
- No Battery Details
It is made clear that this particular unit runs on batteries but the company does not explain what type of battery it actually contains or uses. Therefore it is impossible to know how long the unit will hold a charge which is mildly problematic. This is especially true if you are trying to keep one of these units in things like a glove compartment to have on hand for emergencies. If this is the case it's imperative to test the battery and recharge it regularly.
- Not a Real Compressor
This unit is not meant to replace a standard air compressor. It is simply something that you can have on hand to be more convenient when you have to pump up a bike tire or add air to your car tire. Due to the fact that it is battery-operated, do not expect it to be as fast or as powerful as a regular air compressor. For many consumers, the portability, size, and convenience are a worthy trade-off in these cases.
How It Works
Whether you are talking about a small, handheld device like this one or a large machine, air compressors are very useful in many aspects of life. Air compressors use a reciprocating piston in order to create a temporary vacuum. They then pushed open a valve to let out a small amount of air into the holding tank. At this point, the more strokes the piston is able to perform, the more air is allowed to enter into the holding tank where it becomes stored under pressure. As this pressure is released the energy it contains is used to add air to your tires or any other item.

If you are searching for something to help you in an emergency type situation, this is it. Such situations include things like a car tire that you need to inflate in order to get home or a ball that you need to inflate in order to keep playing. In those cases this is a good inflator to use. However, if you're looking for something to power your tools, seal attire, or clean debris, a traditional compressor is best.
In the event of an emergency situation, this can save you a great deal time. These include things like the need to inflate the tire wall on the road or the need to pump up a bike tire while out on a camping trip. You can save time that you would otherwise been trying to get a replacement. It will help you to get from point A to point B very quickly.
- Electric Air Gun
The electric air pump is very similar in its design but it does cost quite a bit more. This pump is meant to be the same type of portable unit which you can use to pump things like a tire, a ball, or toys. The comfortable handheld design is meant to fit perfectly inside of your hand so that it is easy for you to fill up.
- Airman Handheld Air Gun
Another as seen on TV portable tire inflator is called the Airman handheld air gun compressor. This compressor is exactly the same as the air hawk except for the color and the fact that it is much higher in price.
