Riddle Me This

So, i was thinking of what else I needed for the rig and purchased a pretty bad ass power inverter.

http://www.amazon.com/BESTEK-Outlets.../dp/B004NZI4K6

I also purchased an inflator (my father has it and it has worked flawlessly for a few years). Now, he has the one that I linked below that connects to a regular outlet, but they also have on that plugs into a cigarette outlet in the car.

http://www.amazon.com/Husky-HY120-12...+tire+inflator

Husky 12-Volt Inflator-HD12A - The Home Depot

Now, the price is the same at Home Depot and the specs are pretty much identical, so my question is this; which one would you buy? Speaking with the guy at HD, he said, without hesitation, that he would buy the one with the wall plug instead (since I have the inverter) of the cigarette plug bc the output is much greater and from what I have found on the interwebs, he seems to be speaking the truth.

So, does anyone have actual experience with this?

Re: Riddle Me This

He, and the "web", speak the truth. The 120V AC version flows .47 scfm, 34% more than the 12V DC .35 scfm so it will fill the tire/tube/blowup doll 34% faster lessening chances of blowing fuses, allow the compressor to stay cooler, last longer, etc....120V is a no-brainer, esp with the 300w power inverter which is more than enough to run it.

BTW, HD also also sells that 120V AC Husky one for $10 less.

Re: Riddle Me This

This compressor is more expensive and it is only 12V but the reviews are consistently impressive. I have one in my Jeep but have not tried it out yet.
Amazon.com: Viair 00088 88P Portable Air Compressor: Automotive

Another handy item is the super small lithium ion jump starter boxes. They are small enough to fit in a glove box but I have mine beside the spare tire. Fits great.

Crazy how small that jumper box is. Might want to grab one of those before my next road trip

LOL... yes, he's very subtle when he throws stuff like that in with his responses.

I'm surprised he didn't add to pack along a good supply of patches, just in case.
