Looking for a great tire inflator to keep in your trunk? Amazon is currently having a sale on its top selling portable compressor and the options in this list start from as low as $21.99
Despite how easy it is to use the compressed air machines available at your local gas station, many people are still riding under-inflated tires. According to TyRack.com, “If only a vehicle’s tires are inflated with less than 6 psi of air … the tire’s tread life can be reduced by up to 25%.” Luckily, getting your own portable air compressor and filling up your tires in your driveway is more affordable than ever. There are now options for built-in flashlights, bike tires and sports attachments, and more. Starting at $25, these can save you a trip to the gas station for a top-off or a call to AAA for a tow.

$21.99 on Amazon
- 10′ DC power cord
- 150 psi
- Built-in LED light with SOS and torch mode
- lowest price of the lot
We love the large easy-to-read digital display on this unit. But it’s one of the lower user-rated options on this list, so we’re currently recommending it because it has the lowest price point of the bunch.
EPAuto 12V DC Portable Air Compressor – $29.87 (31% off)
$29.97 on Amazon
- Maximum working pressure of 70 PSI

This unit from EPAuto only weighs 1 pound, making it very portable. However, the one downside is that it is one of the options on this list that takes up the most space with a 13.5 x 8.1 x 5.6” footprint. It also has the lowest maximum pressure rating at only 70 PSI. So while it’s not up to the heaviest workload, it’s a great option to store in the back of a vehicle for emergencies and/or light jobs that won’t stress it, such as small beach toys and balls While inflating
