Portable Tire Inflator Guide

By Edited Jan 29, 2016 0 1

Shopping for a portable tire inflator can be confusing. Lets clear a few things up because the last thing you want to do is purchase a tire inflation compressor that does not work for your vehicle. This portable tire inflator guide should makes things easier for you.

Power Requirements for Tire Inflation

Make sure that the portable tire inflator will function with your vehicle's power outlet or cigarette lighter. This is important because some vehicles can output less amps than the tire inflation system requires. Keep in mind that Slime tire inflators require 15 amps. Which can be an issue for some vehicles. Returning a tire inflator can be a hassle, so make sure to double check the specifications.

Fast Air Fill Up vs Ease of Use

Consider the power source of the tire inflation system as well. If you are looking for the fastest Pounds Per Square Inch (PSI) generator, a 120 Volt portable tire compressor will speed up the inflation process. The catch with the quick filling portable air compressors is that they need a dedicated power outlet. Meaning they do not work with the power source from a vehicle. Make sure that the portable tire inflator you buy can be powered by a vehicle power source if you live in a cold climate. It is all too common to walk out to your car after work and find a tire that is almost flat in colder climates. I've been through it countless times myself. You are going to want a portable tire inflator that works when you are stranded with a low tire in the freezing cold.
