Facebook and other places has ads for the "Air Dragon" compressor. Looks like a battery drill in shape. Best part it has a pressure gauge you can set to what you want and it goes to that and stops?  I think it is pretty neat. Seams to have a piston to make pressure, not just a diaphragm like many that take forever to pump stuff up. This item does in a few moments, real quick.  ON TV of course it is buy one, get one free (kinda scary), but on web site one is about $40 and second one is $19.99 if bought same time. SO, first confusion is why diff on the price and offer.  Says on-line only, or call this number, etc.  Not in stores.  I would really like to see one and hold it and such before buying.  Lots of this stuff on TV ends up at Walmart or other places after a few months at least. Think it will show?  Any Opinions on what it would be like?  Think if you google the  Air Dragon name it should show up.

We refuse to purchase anything advertised "as seen on TV" because it is usually not worth a plug nickel!

I tried to find reviews on that but no luck. What I did find was that the batteries are an extra charge. A 14 foot cord that plugs into the lighter socket is standard. Not good if you are using it on a GT. You can get a low end booster pack with built in compressor for the same price.

I like how they show it pumping up a car tire in about 2 seconds.  :(

My big compressor with a 60 gallon tank [full] can't do that.

Pretty misleading to say the least.

I figure I've gotten by the last 47 years without one and I'm gonna try to get by another 47 years without one. :deadhorse:

We have a store in town that sells only "as seen on tv" products. Possibly you have one nearby.  I find anything sold on tv is going to be regifted.

gl when Andersons had a store in Lima they a rack that had "as seen on tv" for sale. You might check out the one over in Perrysberg and see if they suck a rack before the close the doors.

HF has a 12v compressor for $5. They die in a couple of years but I always keep one in each car. My older GTs have a cigarette lighter that the pump will plug into. The jumper/compressor tools are really nice and handy for getting vehicles and GTs going. Good Luck, Rick
