I've used one of these Kobalt inflators from Lowe's for two years now:

Runs on AC (high voltage=low current) off my inverter
Auto shutoff at set psi
Handles high pressure Class B tires (80 psi)

It's $50 now new, but I paid $40. Very reliable.

Thanks for the link to this dual-voltage inflator. Looks like a good unit, with an easy-to-store shape.

The PDF specs. do not indicate the lengths of the two power cords. When you get a chance, could you give us a rough idea of how far from each of the two outlets (12 volt and 120 volt) the unit could be located?

Also, the air hose is said to be 12' long. Could you confirm this and also let us know what the longest "reach" of the inflator is from the electric plug to the tire valve end of the air hose?

Thanks for any additional details you can post.

Peter

Peter - sorry, just noticed this. I will check tomorrow and post back.

I can say on mine, the inflator hose is about 18". It stores by wrapping around the pump in a channel. Same for the AC power cord. Not sure about the DC cord - I've never used it on DC.

^^^ I removed the 12VDC power cord and it is every bit of 12' long.

Thanks, so from the 12 volt receptacle to the air nozzle, there would be about 14' or so of reach? I am hoping that the rear 12 volt receptacle in my van could support using this compressor on the trailer's 2 tires, without unhooking the trailer.

Thanks.

Yep, about 12' plus a bit for the hose. Ish.

OK, the $70 Viair 88P blows the 150db air horn just fine.


Its battery to valve-stem length is 26 feet.


The box with plastic handle is designed to be its storage container. It all fits perfectly in the old lunchbox from my Factory Rat days, with room to spare.

It's a good pump

I bought the combination jump box and air compressor from Sams Club.I use the compressor to blow the water lines when winterizing and adding air to my tires,I use the jump box to power my portable water pump for filling my water tanks from 8 gallon water containers when boondocking and I have jump started other vehicles in distress (along with my own).Works great for me.I dont leave without it.

OK Aluminuiminum
I am glad to hear you found the 88P satisfactory.

I think that makes more sense than the spendy higher end models.

Thanks,
Piggy Bank

How long ago did you buy it? Did you know the brand? I'm guessing the model number has changed by now.

I'm probably gonna catch flack for recommending this but here goes - I have owned a Viair, and ARB and another (can't remember name). All of them were great but some went with vehicles when they sold (as a package off-road deal - or the like). When I went to replace the Viair, I really didn't want to spend the money they cost on something that got used very little. I spent some time online researching and found that this one at Harbor Freight had very high marks and great reviews. I have one and have used it several times with great results. Don't let the price fool you.
