Found a similar product on amazon.com here: http://www.amazon.com/250psi-Portable-Compressor-Automotive-Tools/dp/B000RB3XY2/ref=sr_1_1?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1265745573&sr=1-1.

Has so-so reviews (may blow fuses) but seemed alright. The price was the same ($7.99) so if you miss this deal you have a backup option.

I have one of these and love it. It is a lifesaver in the car, plus the extra tips are good for pool floats and air mattresses. I highly recommend it. Plus, you can't beat that price.

My old compressor died on me a while back and I haven't replaced it yet. I'm in for one.

Handy-dandy...

A compressor like this and a tire-plug kit (get a GOOD one, NOT a cheapo) has kept me MANY Times from even having to change a tire, such as if you notice a low-tire and find a nail or screw in it.

Pull the nail or screw out, pop in a plug, air it up, and be on your merry way.

Without even so much as having to get the lug-wrench out :)
AND FASTER TOO !

In for 2, I'll get an AC to 12v DC adapter and use one to blow out my PC and other things around the house.

I've owned one like this for years. Excellent for the kids bike tires, but unable to pump up a flat wheelbarrow tire - inadequate air to effect a seal with the rim.

And I wouldn't want to depend upon it for the car tires - it would take days if it would ever actually increase the air pressure.

Wonder if it has an on/off switch? The guy in the video makes it seem like it doesn't. The only problem with that is that I've found the guages on some of these to be inaccurate in comparison to my hand guage which I use in the first place to check if a tire is low on pressure. I usually will use a compressor and double-check with the my hand guage to make sure I'm at the right pressure. It would be a pain to do that with this one if I had to pull the adapter out of the DC socket everytime. Hopefully the guage on this is more accurate than the ones on the other compressors I've used.

In for 1. At $1 every time you need air at a gas station this will pay for itself shortly.

Been OVER 2-WEEKS since I ordered this, has anyone actually gotten their order yet?

IHTHT sent me an e-mail on the 12-FEB with a FedEx tracking # that my order had shipped, but it did not get the first notice/scan of being received by FedEx until 19-FEB. Estimated Delivery per FedEx, 27-FEB.

Hmmm... 18-days delivery time.

Got mine today, FINALLY.

THERE IS NO ON-OFF SWITCH, AND IT IS NOT FUSED

BEWARE WITH THIS THING

I plugged it in, it immediately came on.

I unplugged it and hooked it up to an EMPTY portable air tank, it did not come back on. Unplugged it, it smelled like something was burned AND THE WIRE WAS HOT.

This thing is a FIRE waiting to happen...

@shaft104: Where is that ON-OFF switch?
Because if it does have one, it's sure hidden VERY well as I see nothing even remotely resembling a switch.

CHEAP CHINESE WASTE OF RECYCLED METALS AND PLASTIC.

I had a compressor similar to this one. It was designed to work once, and that's just what jt did--Junk
