#37 of 46 Re: How about a tire inflating compressor? [sthacker]

While we're on the topic of air compressors, I'm looking for one to inflate car tires
I like the battery operated air compressors for tires. Sears has a nice one for about $40. A lot quicker and less hassle than the cheap 19 dollar/plug in jobs that take 5-10 minutes to put 6 or 7 psi in a tire.

I'm in contact with a lawyer now, so hopefully I'll get something toward it. Only saving thing is that it is paid for so I'm not paying for something I can't use

Can anyone recommend from personal experience a high quality portable jump starter? The one I had died after only 1 year and zero jumps even though I kept it charged up.
Features I'd like are:
1. On/Off switch
2. Cables that aren't too short
3. Reasonably accurate battery meter
4. Air Compressor (not mandatory)

These portable jump starters can be a real problem. There is a great range of quality in these types of products. I would suggest that you speak to your local mobile automotive tool dealer and ask him what unit he sells to his customers. Do not expect to pay $49 for it!

Schumacher is a well-known brand that has been used by mechanics for years, and I would probably buy that unit simply because I am not familiar with the AutoSport unit.
Another tool that is popular as an emergency item as well as a shop tool is the cordless rechargeable work and emergency light. I have had one of these in daily use for almost 2 years and it has never let me down - http://www.led-worklight.com/product/MXN01200

I asked my mechanic (who uses SnapOn tools) about this today, and he said Schumacher is a good brand and I shouldn't have any problem with that one. So I think I'm going to order it.
