This air compressor is easy to use but you need to carefully read the instructions. It is very portable and easy to store neatly with all its cables in a small space. IT is also very lightweight so you won’t struggle to carry it around.  It works quickly and inflates well for a compact unit.

The digital gauge makes it very easy to read the pressure, even in low light. It features an auto stop function that is very useful, works well and is convenient. On top of this, it is very reasonably priced.

On the other hand, there are a few issues to keep in mind. It runs on 10 Ampere, so you will need to carefully check your car owner’s manual to check if your battery will work with this level of Amp usage.

The hose is also a bit short, but not a major problem. It does need to cool down after use, and can run for 30 minutes but then needs to cool down. Like many air compressors it is quite loud.

 Final Verdict:

This lightweight portable air compressor by Suaoki performs well above its weight class. The digital display and flashlight features are also very useful when you need to work next to a road at night to deal with a slow leak.

If it will work well with your car’s battery it will be an excellent choice as a portable air compressor. But be sure, you don’t want to blow a fuse. We recommend this little guy to travel along in your car, so you don’t have to worry about deflating tires.
