REVIEW – When I was given a chance to review this, I thought I was getting some kind of canned air that recharges. You know, the kind you use to blow dust out of keyboards? Nope, the Audew Cordless Air Compressor is a handheld rechargeable tool that lets you inflate automotive tires, bike tires, pool toys, balls, etc.

What’s in the box?
The package comes with the inflator, rechargeable battery, multiple tips/nozzles, and a 12V car adapter base.
Design and features
On the bottom of the base is a clever storage compartment for the flexible nozzle. It stores in the hollow portion of the “finger guard.”
The rechargeable battery also has a built-in storage for two nozzle tips. The black tip is a plain cone, and the familiar needle tip for balls. There’s a USB recharging cable that plugs into the base of the battery. An LED on the cable “box” lights up when charging.
There’s a 12V car adapter option included as well. This clever “battery” is actually hollow, and the cigar lighter plug stores in the empty base.
The tool has a lock, a trigger to turn the compressor on and off, and an LED area light.
You need to attach the flexible hose to the tip of the compressor. Here, I’ve used the needle tip to inflate a small ball.
I noticed that the LCD display indicates the current pressure. You can use the buttons to set the automatic shutoff point. Once the preset pressure is reached, the compressor turns off automatically. Yes, the compressor works with car tires as well.
If you’ve never used an electric compressor before, it does make quite a bit of noise. It’s definitely not a stealthy tool.
What I like
Clever storage for all the tips and adapters. The ability to program a preset pressure shutoff is a nice touch.
What needs to be improved
The plastics feel slightly cheap, but it keeps the weight down.
If you’re tired of the traditional bike pump, or you don’t feel like traveling to the gas station to get air for your tires and pool toys, look no further than the Audew Cordless Air Compressor. I have a shop compressor in my garage, but it’s not portable and lightweight.
