that's no generator, it's a space station.

keep in mind the cheap versions of these burn out very easily and are very loud

I got a cheap one ($35 - 20% off) from Harbor Freight, and it's not loud at all. I've only aired up tires about five times since getting it a month ago, but it works great and is so much quieter than I thought it would be.

that's not the cheap one, that is the better heavy duty one

the "high volume" is the dead giveaway

you rarely see the better ones at $20 or less, virtually never

pep boys had one with a rebate once that was like $20 and I regret not getting it

instead I got a $10 Bell 350 hand pump and use myself as the motor, lol

Good price but $6.50 shipping kills the deal for me. Free shipping to local store if you have one nearby.

This particular inflator is a crappy low flow unit. Which still could be OK for occasionally adding 4 PSI to a tire once your tire inflation light comes on, but not much else. To wit,form their own Q&A: "This portable air compressor is primarily intended to maintain tires at proper pressure which already have air in them. It can inflate sport equipment like balls quickly and bicycle tires quickly but standard car tires would take some time to inflate from a flat state. The item has not been rated or tested on length of time it might take to inflate a flat car tire".

There are several good inflators available out there. All of them will show flow rates (albeit they all play games with numbers). The one mentioned above, from HF, is a good unit. The one I constantly use on my race tires pretty much every weekend is this one: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Masterf...r/12321235 Same $35, though you can get HF for less with coupon. Higgher flow rate by about 20% on Masterflow for those who need it.

If you look, most of the good inflators have a screw-on connector instead of a quick connector. That's actually annoying, but a pretty easy way to tell if the unit you are looking at is... umm... not great.
