    Any suggestions for battery jump box with a good compressor-gctid360704

    Looking to see if anyone has a suggestion by chance for a good battery jump box, you know the ones that you keep for when you need to jump start your car, that has a good air compressor on it. I've found that the ones I've used have a cheap compressor that you can only run for a minute or two without burning it up. I've had that happen a couple of times, most recently this past weekend.

    Thanks,

      Based on the ones I've seen (and some I've burned up) there's no such thing as a battery jump box with a good compressor. The smallest portable compressor I have that I would consider reliable and capable of sustained operation is about 15lb, and it's a standalone device. No battery/jump box attached.

        Agreed. Batteries are heavy. Good compressors are heavy. If you want both of them built into one portable unit that you can carry in one hand, the compressor will have to be lightweight and lower quality.

          I got this Peak 450 Portable Power System at Pep Boys a couple of years ago. I charge it overnight once at the beginning of the season. Have used it to fill multiple bike tires, charge cell phones and run the DVD player on the hook for the kids a bunch of times and it still started my neighbor's car first try months after it had last been plugged in.

          The compressor is not high powered but it works. Takes about 10 minutes to take a trailer tire from 35 to 45psi. And like I said I have only had to charge the thing two or three times and it always works.
