Junk!
I bought this product based on Wagan's claim that "It inflates one 16" car tire in only 90 seconds".

First off in my opinion this unit was used, not new.There was grime (not grease) all over the base. The box also looked worn.

Second, this compressor would have a hard time filling a bike tire in 90 seconds. I tried to fill a partially deflated 16" tire and ten minutes later the unit was red hot and still wasn't close to being finished.

If you want to inflate a... more

Died
The first time I used the compressor it sounded powerful, and did an excellent job... for 3 minutes, then it died!

Absolutely nothing abnormal happened, can't explain it.

Kris,
This model has a 1 year Factory Warranty, so you will want to give the folks at Wagan a call, toll free, at 800-231-5806 for repair/replacement.

You may also want to see if you blew a fuse in your car's fuse box.

Works Well, Bad Handle
The compressor has worked very well, but the handle broke off the first time we used it.

The compressor is faster than the old one we had, but the handle is designed poorly.

Flimsy Compressor
Metal handle is mounted in a flimsy plastic plastic housing, it was broken off right out of the box, epoxied it together. Blew the cigarette lighter immediately, cut the cigarette connector off and soldered on alligator clips.

Do not drop it, it will be toast.

Brad,
This unit has a 1 year Factory Warranty. Before you customized the inflator the folks at Wagan would have been happy to repair or replace your unit.

Unfortunately, modifications will void your warranty.

Excellent Compressor
This is an excellent compressor. It is small, compact, quiet and fast.

I also like the screw connector much better than the snap-on connector on my previous compressor. Pressure loss, when unscrewing the connector, is negligible.

The pressure gauge measures about one pound less then my digital tire gauge.

Not Skeptical Any More
I have been planning for a year for a trip to Alaska. I was looking for an air compressor for emergencies and I came across the Wagan 12-Volt Dynamite Inflator (2050).

I have owned small compressors like this before and they weren't worth a hill of beans. I was a little bit skeptical about this one.

I took it to a friend's shop and deflated most of the air in one of my Dodge Ram's tires. I turned it on, and let it go, and within about 10 minutes or so - give or take, I had 60... more

Bike Tires Up To Normal In Seconds
I recently purchased a Wagan 12 volt air inflator. My wife's bike tires had lost a lot of air over the winter time. I hooked up the Wagan inflator and it was very impressive to view the large air pressure meter, and the tires were up to normal pressure in just a few seconds.

That unit really works fast and is easy to use. I am very happy to have this unit in my vehicle.
