Looking for a quality tire inflator that fits in your trunk?Amazon is having its best-selling portable compressor on sale right now, and the options on this listing start as low as $21.99
Despite how easy it is to use the compressed air machine available at your local gas station, far too many people still ride with under-inflated tires. According to TireRack.com, “If a vehicle’s tires are under-inflated to 6 psi…the tire’s tread life may be reduced by as much as 25 percent.” Luckily, having your own portable air compressor and working on your own Inflating tires on your driveway is more affordable than ever. There are now options like built-in flashlights, bike tires, and sports accessories. Starting at under $25, these can save you a trip to the gas station for fuel or a call to AAA for a tow.

- 10′ DC power cord
- 150 psi
- Built-in LED light with SOS and torch mode
- Lowest price in this group
We love the large, easy-to-read digital display on this unit. But it’s one of the lower user-rated options on this list, so we’re currently recommending it because it has the lowest price.
EPAuto 12V DC Portable Air Compressor – $29.87 (31% off)
- Maximum working pressure 70 PSI
This unit from EPAuto weighs only 1 pound, making it very portable. One downside, however, is that it’s one of the most space-consuming options on this list, with a footprint of 13.5 x 8.1 x 5.6 inches. It also has the lowest maximum pressure rating at just 70 PSI. So while it’s not suitable for the heaviest of workloads, it’s a great option to store in the back of your vehicle for emergencies and/or for light jobs that don’t stress it out, like giving Small beach toys and ball inflatables.
