I got one of these as a gift. You need to change the hose and release valve to make it better. Or connect it to another compressor to have extra storage.

Remember that 1 gallon of water weighs 8.3454 lbs, so this thing fully loaded is gonna be heavy. Would probably want to add another handle to make it more ergonomic.
And how much does a gallon of compressed air weigh?

I'm sure you didn't google that...

Also what would adding another handle do, as you would look like a moron holding it like a kettlebell.

You'd move a lot more air, faster. I don't know whether it's worth the increased speed though. From the reviews, it seems that the valve and hose are both leaky. Replace those two with decent quality components and you're nearly doubling the cost. At that point - I'd rather pick up a 12V air compressor, or even better if you're already on one of the 18-20V cordless tool systems, a battery powered compressor.

This would explain why my phone is so heavy due to about 450GB worth of data in storage currently

This isn't a water tank.

That entirely depends on how compressed it is. The product info says 125 psi, which is 8.5x as dense as air (yes, Googled this piece only).

Let's see...22.4L is a mole of air, which has a mass of about 15 grams. 8.5 x 7 gallons is about 60 gallons...which is about 220 liters...so all the air this can hold would be about 150 grams, or about 1/3 a pound.

Fill this up, and I think you get about 1/3 pound of air in it. So the 18.3 pound empty container becomes 18.6 pounds when filled to the max...maybe less since you're really only adding 7.5x as much air since the first atmospheric pressure (1 atm) is free.

I have a small Makita air compressor (one of the Quiet series); can I use this to increase the capacity? What would I need to buy? And how would I hook the two up?

These aux tanks predate the portable mini compressors by multiple decades, and was the only accessible option until the last 10 years or so. Given both options, the portable compressors are much more convenient, but are slow, noisy, and underpowered for truck/ATV/tractor tires. For passenger car and light truck tires, I'd go with a portable compressor, but for bigger jobs, these tanks still have a place.

They also work well to extend the capacity of your shop compressor, or add as a buffer tank for long runs. (Ie, connect 100' of hose to compressor, then add this tank inline right before the air tool.) Just make sure you re-seal/replace the stock fittings, as they're cheap and prone to leaking.
