    81042 is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Got this because the compressor I had was super slow and could barely air up a tire. This one appears to fill a tire considerably quicker and doesn't get burning hot like my old one. Like the addition of lights for safety and that they work even when not plugged into the car.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I've been looking for. I help maintain the vehicles of three children and two grandchildren in addition to those of me and my wife. Most of the vehicles are SUV's, and hand pumping or running around frequently to fuel stations to keep the tires properly inflated became too time consuming. The JEGS 81042 air compressor allows me to do that quickly and efficiently. The product is well designed and lightweight with handy storage bag, convenient handle for transporting, integral pressure gauge and work lights, on/off switch, air hose extension providing enough length to reach all four tires, adequate length power cord, and clamps for battery terminals. The compressor has very good capacity, and I connect the power cord directly to the vehicle battery to prevent overloading the vehicle electrical system. Works great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 81042 comp It seems to be a quality air compressor. I haven't had a chance to use it yet. I bought it to take on the boat with the family so it will likely be another month before I try it out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and effective! I purchased this a month ago for use with my '86 CJ7 with 35 inch tires. It's small size yet powerful compressor make it a perfect fit for my uses!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Pump I bought to air up my F150 truck tires. The only reason I am taking a star from the rating is because the power cord is too short. I had to attach the hose that is coiled to air my back tires. I have a crew cab which has a short wheel base. If I had a long wheel base, the pump would not reach. Performance wise, this pump is quick at airing up tires.

    Looking for my husband. Is this compressor able to be used with cigarette lighter in vehicle and by electricity?

    Asked by: SweetBJ
    It is recommended to hook up to the battery directly, but if your cigarette lighter has a 20 amp fuse then you can connect it through the 12v plug.
