    Can't imagine the DeWalt version would be much different.
    Same. Works really well.

      Anyone used the Ozito one? https://www.bunnings.com.au/ozito-po...-only_p6290638

      Im considering it over the Ryobi due to 240v, and also having a ton of Ozito batteries that i adapt to other platforms. (The Ryobi one i refer to above was borrowed from a mate)

        the little ones are fine for a low profile tyre that might be down a few PSI.

        the big beasts are more for doing 4 x 285/75R17 MTs up from 18psi to 40+psi after coming off the beach without overheating and taking an hour.

            Yeah just bought one. Drained the 2ahr battery adding 10psi to 4 tyres. I only want it for pushbike tyres and adding a couple of psi to 2 tyres at the track if needed

              Forg, you have a compressor...set it up. In the corner, out the back etc, set it up to do stuff.

                This. I have 30m of air line on mine even taking into account the time to coil that back up its quicker than waiting for the inevitably flat battery tool to recharge.

                  I have no real excuse for wasting the $150 (it was on special) for the DeWalt 18V pump, which I've not needed to use yet, compared to working-out how to service the compressor & then using it.
                  Except it's easier & more fun to go shopping for tools than the garage shuffling required to get the Escort shell outta the way so I can get to where the compressor is stored, and then to find a place to store all the stuff that's in the only available corner the compressor could sit.

                  Both the DeWalt and the AEG 18V chargers say you can leave a battery in it, as it'll turn off unless the battery needs charging. So I never have flat battery issues. My biggest issue is having chosen one brand as my 18V solution & then inheriting some useful tools of another brand ...
                  Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                    I have the dual thumper in the back of my 4WD and it's great for getting tyres from 12psi to road going pressure but seems overkill for topping up tyres on the daily. Factor in an extra $50 for a reliable gauge and some extra fittings to fit it inline. The gauge it comes with will almost certainly be out and it's fitted to the tyre end, while the switch to kill the compressor is on the compressor. I threw a new gauge on at the compressor end so that I can just switch the compressor off when it's at the point I want it rather than constantly disconnect, check, reconnect and inflate a bit, check.

                    I think the most logical options in this case are either set up the compressor you already own for free, maybe in an out of the way spot and grab a retractable hose reel next time supercheap has them on sale so it's easy to use or grab a cordless one that has the set-and-forget function and uses batteries you already own.

                      Is there anything that anyone has found that is good for 24v systems?

                      We used a little 240v compressor running off a small generator and it is dying/useless and we have an onboard tank on our service truck that runs 24v. It's frustrating when you need more air and the compressor starts playing up.

                      Thinking we could have the tank full when the car comes in for service and fill tyres, blow out dust etc.

                      The thumpers ones look good, is there a 24v equivalent?

                        The ARB Twin Air Compressor that I have on board is great, they sell them in 24v configuration as well.
