  1 Question
Q: Steve, Good morning. in the 12 volt consumer inflator category why do you recommend the Slime 2x over the Viair 85?

This is for a car with 18 " wheels and no spare tire. I currently have one of the low end SLIME kits but the inflator that comes with it has me worried it would fail before the job was done in an emergency.

by Griffin from Virginia on July 03, 2016

A: We recommended the Slime 2X because it is a twin piston inflator designed for faster inflation than a single piston model. Be aware that the Slime must be connected directly to the battery. It cannot be powered from a 12V cigarette/accessory socket.

This unit won our "Good" because in can inflate up-to 31" SUV or Truck tires.

The inflator comes with a screw-on tire chuck for easy viewing of your pressure.

You love the compact design of this inflator which can travel anywhere with you.

Great Purchase!
This thing is awesome! Inflated my tires faster than any other portable I have ever owned.

I love that it has all adapters necessary to inflate multiple devices and it's packaged perfectly in a nice carrying case.

I am very, very pleased with this purchase.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Durable, Easy To Use, Price

Decent Product For What It Is Intended For
This air compressor is not exactly what I had in mind. It does not generate a high amount of air pressure, so it does take a while to air up a tire. If all you want to air up are vehicle tires it is OK, but it is a somewhat of a chore if you want to air up something else; i.e., your wheel barrow tire, your riding lawn mower tire, etc. You have to get close enough for the line to reach the item. It's just not truly portable.

It is great to carry in your vehicle in case of emergency- but... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Light Weight, Easy To Store
Cons: does not deliver high air pressure

John,
This unit has a 1 year Factory Warranty, so you may want to give the folks at VIAIR a call at (949) 585-0011 to discuss the oil leak since it is a sealed unit that doesn't need lubrication.

The power cord is 10 feet long, and the hose is 3 feet long; so you should be able to use the inflator for anything in that general area. A 12-volt inflator isn't going to be fast since they have to be compact and not drain your car battery.

To quickly inflate tires on your mower, wheelbarrow, and other yard equipment a Small Air Compressor that runs on 120 volts is going to do a faster job and last longer.

A Real (usable) Inflator
We live in Los Angels, CA and twice a year we drive to Jackson Hole, WY., a 1,000 mile drive each way. Since we always go in late Spring and late fall when Jackson Hole has plenty of snow on the ground at that time. We always make sure we have snow chains and a battery starter kit as temperature can drop below Zero at night.

I bought a COBRA starter and inflater unit to make sure we can correct a low the battery condition while we are in this cold weather and a potential under-inflated tire... more

Would Recommend It
I bought this air compresor for airing up tires on my atv's used it twice works great and takes only a
minute to do the job. ( only needs 4-7 psi per tire )

One thing I was worried about was the amp's needed to run it, I did'nt want to blow a fuse,
using the cigerette lighter on my atv worked great with no problems.

one complant I have with with the air compresor is the screw on tip,( for the valve stem ) I think it's a pain,
But it does work.

my other complant is, The air gauge... more

Inaccurate Gauge
Great little air compressor. I use it mainly for airing up the tires on my ATV trailer, truck, & wife's SUV. I've also used it on my Honda Big Red UTV.

The pump is compact, efficient, and well made. It put 25 additional pounds in my trailer tires in about 3 minutes each.

I would have given the pump 5 stars except for the inaccurate air pressure gauge on the pump. It read 40 lbs on my trailer tires when they actually had 60+ pounds in them after filling with the Viair 85.

Amazing
Like most people I've purchased the portable air pumps at local discount stores. I have an SUV that I seldom used as it consumes 2 to 3 times the fuel that my subcompact does. The light comes on the dash advising me of low tire pressure.

The cheaper units start burning up before the tires are topped off and I have to finish with a bicycle pump. At 65 with the weather turning wet and cold, this is not fun. The gas stations with FREE AIR are few these days. You have to wait in line and the... more

Worth The Money
The compressor is easy to use and is worth the money I paid. The gauge on the compressor is not accurate, it's off about 2 to 3 psi, but on other compressors I have used the gauge was off up to 10 psi.

If you don't have a tire gauge at the time you need the compressor it gets you close enough without excessive over or under inflating your tires.

I can't believe this small profile device delivers such sure and dependable performance.

So far, so great...can't say a negative thing about my Viair.

Great little machine for a good price.

Peace Of Mind
I drive a Corvette, but I refuse to buy the overprice run-flat tires. With my new compressor, I feel more comfortable driving on long trips knowing that I can get out of a jam.

Works Good
I read a lot about this thing blowing fuses in cars and trucks. Well, do like I did and put in a 50 amp fuse holder and new wire in a circuit-there you go, it works great!!!

These folks complaining about the blown fuses I think have no mechanical ability at all.


It's a very good product- thank you.
