I really like the 8pc. Portable Air Compressor by Craftsman... I'm going to pull the trigger and get it. Thanks for your help!

I hope you can see it on the website. It is a sealed battery, charges on household 120v extension cord. It has status lights. All I need for running compressor. Obviously it won't run as long as a car or deep cycle battery, but I just haul it around vehicles.

Another option for air volume is a portable tank. You full with compressor then just carry it around. With adapters you can run air tools briefly if needed.

So it is compromises. Just life.

One friend installed a heavy duty compressor and tank on his truck. Just add hoses if proper length and off you go! Cost prohibitive. But he was runnin Mudder tires and woul let air out for better off road traction. When re entering hard road surface he would air up. This way while he was playing off-road the tank was being recharged. Again, compromises.

I like idea if having "another power source". Good for jump starts, filling kiddie pool toys, has built in work light, etc. you can use around house too.
Peace and Blessings..
