This is a joke of a scam.

For starters, compressing lots of air, requires lots and lots of energy. We're speaking about several HP at the very least, which at 12V would mean hundreds of amps. The power required to compress all that air can't possibly be obtained through those wires.

This is an example of a real electric supercharger:

Note that it requires 350 amps, i.e. 4.2 KW. And that's for a mild 6psi boost on a small 1.2l engine.

BTW, Google is also your friend
