Need Recommendation For 12v Air Compressor

Looking for recommendations on a high quality 12v Air Compressor for tire inflation. I'm looking for something like the WINDEK RCP-B62A for garage and travel. I have the "Joes Racing 32310 (0-60) PSI Tire Pressure Gauge with Hold Valve" on the way but thought it would be nice to be able to take care of business while in the parking garage instead of the fuel station. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

I bought a "Viair 00073 70P Heavy Duty Portable Compressor" and it has worked well.

This is the one I have. I've been using it for years.

X2 for Viair... I have the 88P probably overkill for you but a great little compressor. I Use mine to re-inflate 35" Jeep tires after trail runs. Its no replacement for a SHOP compressor but its great for filling tires and can run for 20+ minutes without overheating.

Very solid compared to all of the plastic junk out there.

Went all in on a VIAIR 400P automatic. OMG what a dream. Pop the hood, wire up and then fill all 4 tires without having to move or fuss with the compressor. Just walk around the car with the hose. Compressor turns on and off automatically and is very quiet. Probably a little big for travel but it fits in the under floor panel cubby in the trunk of my gran coupe.

I went the other way, and bought the smallest, cheapest compressor at Sears. It plugs into the cigarette lighter. It is a bit slow, but it is so easy to stow away and it has met all of my needs.
