Airing Up

Hi all – 1st post here,
Just curious if anyone has used one of the new battery operated air compressor on the market to air up?
The Ridgid 18V with a 1 gallon tank or the Dewalt Flexvolt 60V with a 2.5 gallon tank.
Both seem small and compact enough to tag along on the trail and use when finished.
Thanks in advance for replies

dewalt one is $300. i guess in my mind it depends if you are going to use the air compressor for other activities to justify the cost. i run a power tank because i am very impatient and 40s take forever on a traditional air compressor. but i also use it for running nails guns etc too. im curious how many tire fills could you get on one flexvolt battery.

If you're just getting it for the Jeep, I say go ARB or something along those lines, or a compressed air tank. Right now I'm running a portable compressor that runs off the battery (gator clamp) just to air up (33's), but eventually plan on getting an ARB Dual setup put in. If you're going to be using it around the house, it's kind of a 2 birds 1 stone setup.

If you are looking for a Portable, the best one for the money is the Smittybilt S/B2781 for $164.99. It moves the most amount of air for the money and that's what you want. It moves 5.65 CFM. The only one that comes close is the ARB twin, which is $517.00 and moves 6.16 CFM. BTW, they are not really Portable. I like mine portable because I have two Jeeps. I've had it for about 3 years now and it has not failed once. A less expensive one won't move even close to the amount of air so it takes what seems like forever to air up.
