Compressors are among the most common tools to have, because they represent a practically essential solution for a self-respecting garage. In fact, they allow routine maintenance to be carried out on all vehicles, from manual traction (such as bicycles) to motor traction (motorcycles and cars), but they are also used to inflate water toys or to clean tools and work environments thanks to the powerful jet of air.

It is very important nowadays to have a compressor, even a small one, for bicycles, electric bicycles and scooters. In this sense, we want to start this particular buying guide with a product with an excellent quality / price ratio, namely the Intex 68613. We are talking about a small manual pump, which guarantees high performance in all those household contexts.

Another product to consider is the Xiaomi Portable Digital Compressor, also known as Mi Portable Air Pump. It can be transported with the utmost ease and safety. Thanks to an electronic drive (inside there is a small battery) it can inflate any type of tire, as long as it does not run out of autonomy. It also has five keys, a display (to view various parameters useful for recognizing the inflation status), a digital pressure sensor and some predefined programs. In the package we find, in addition to the compressor, also a usb cable and a transport bag.

Tonsim digital compressor

Among the portable solutions, we recommend that you take a look at the Tonsim digital compressor. It is a solution that includes a 2000 mAh lithium-ion battery inside, and is therefore capable of inflating the wheels several times, with a single charge. In addition, it has five inflation modes, each dedicated to a specific wheel, such as those of motorcycles, bicycles and cars. Thanks to its LCD screen, it is possible to view tire pressure and other useful parameters during the various operations. In short, an excellent product that can accompany you on long journeys!

Mannesmann M01790

Among the professional and compact products we certainly find the 12-volt aluminum mini-compressor belonging to the Brüder Mannesmann Werkzeuge stable, which is characterized by its resistant structure and its power. In addition, in maximum practicality, it allows you to inflate tires of all kinds, balloons and many other similar products, thanks to a high pressure (up to 10 bar). It also guarantees automatic protection against overloads and a second protection against water splashes, which can sometimes damage the internal mechanisms. Inside the package, in addition to the compressor, there are four adapters each for balls, bicycle tires, air mattresses and cars.

18V HYCHIKA compressor

The compressor developed by HYCHIKA guarantees not only high performance but also a design that adapts perfectly to any type of garage. It reaches a maximum pressure of 1100KPA (160PSI) and a low pressure flow of 380L / min, to ensure optimal inflation for all types of tires, and more. It also has a 2000 mAh internal battery or a 12V cigarette lighter socket, which allow you to take it with you in the car, without having to contact a gas station attendant. In addition to all this, it boasts an LCD display, to keep updated on the pressure status or on any malfunctions. The package includes a compressor, a charger, a cigarette lighter socket, a nozzle adapter and an air hose.

Compact compressor Black + Decker ASI300

Black + Decker is one of the best brands in the production of maintenance and do-it-yourself products. Among its products, we recommend that you take a look at the compact compressor ASI300, characterized by a series of essential functions for a self-respecting compressor. First of all, it can be used via a 230V socket or via a 12V socket (cigarette lighter), and is therefore ideal for indoor and outdoor inflation. Its power allows it to reach a pressure of 11 bar, which is why it can inflate practically everything, from air mattresses to bicycles, without forgetting car tires. It also guarantees an automatic shutdown system, should the system become aware of the achievement of the desired result. Finally, it also boasts a luminous dial to select the desired inflation pressure.

Einhell 4010370 compressor

Looking for a professional product, we suggest you consider purchasing the Einhell 4010370 BT-AC 270/50 compressor. It is a useful product to carry out any maintenance operation, thanks to a power of 1.8 kW (2.5 HP) and a tank capacity of 50 liters. Its flow rate is 262 liters per minute, while the operating pressure is equal to 175 liters per minute in 0 bar, 150 liters per minute in 4 bars and 113 liters per minute in 7 bars. All while maintaining a certain safety standard for all products awaiting maintenance. Although it is not a home product, we still recommend that you take a look at this product.

How to choose the best compressors

Once we have reviewed the best compressors on the market, we propose below the characteristics to look for in such a product, in case you want to research it independently.

Structure, and consequent capacity Motor Pressure Secondary accessories

Structure, and consequent capacity

One of the factors to consider before purchasing a compressor is the structure, with consequent capacity. In fact, on the market we find two large families of products, compressors with tank (specific for long-lasting jobs) and those without (for all short jobs such as inflating products). The choice therefore must be based on the future use of this machinery. In this article we have favored products without tanks.


The compressors can be powered by current (alternating or direct) or by petrol. In this article we have deliberately selected only current products, because they are easy to operate, and do not involve risks to health and the environment. As regards the family of electric compressors, there are therefore two types of power supply, as specified above.


The pressure represents a fundamental value for a compressor. The higher its value, the greater the air jet that it will be able to channel into the product to be inflated. In addition to this data, a compressor must have a pressure gauge in order to effectively measure the internal pressure of the wheels, otherwise there is the risk of the inevitable bursting.

Secondary accessories

Last, but not for order of importance, are the secondary accessories. These tools allow a compressor to become practically universal, and therefore compatible with all types of unions. Finally, the presence of accessories also allows you to make a small saving, in monetary terms, avoiding unnecessary future expenses.
