Tire Inflators using 120v Outlets

Anyone use something like this with the 120v power outlets built into the JK?

http://www.amazon.com/Goodyear-i8000.../dp/B003XGYDE2

Anyone think this will be a problem? (Blown fuses etc)

Thanks!

Won't work... Its a "3 prong" designed for a home outlet... Maybe is you have an aftermarket converter but IDK. Smittybilt has a portable one designed with clamps for the under-hood battery that works well. I have one and it hasn't failed me yet.

The JK power outlet has rather low wattage and doubt it can power that compressor. Sadly there is no load amp spec on that compressor but I'm pretty sure it will be higher than the outlet can supply.

Inflates a p185/ 14 from 0-28 in 2 1/2 minutes...... so about a half hour for a 35 and a hour for a 37.
Stay away. Many better 12v compressors out there than that.

You smell that?

All good points above... add to the list...

It's an inefficient use of energy to convert electricity to another voltage and then use it when there are alternatives that do not require that conversion.

I was looking into the same route as you - ended up purchasing the Smittybilt.

Knock on wood, so far so good.

Beside drawing more power than the AC outlet can provide, motors do not like modified sinewave AC power. It will run very hot and probably thermal shut-down well before you finished inflating your first tire.

I've used the Q Industries MV50 for 8 years. It airs-up a 35" KM2 from 15 to 30 psi in around 4 minutes per tire, and has never shut down to overheating, even after filling 8 tires. Not bad for a compressor I bought for under $50, now selling for around $65. There were some quality control and design limitations with the original models that could be overcome with a little fine tuning on the bench, but the models sold now seem to have incorporated most of those improvements. Search for "MV50 Compressor Mods" to see more.
