When we set out to build the Air Armor M240 air compressor we started with the question, what should this thing do? Our answer was, it should be durable, be able to be tossed into a truck or mounted on a jeep. It should have some room to keep some tools or a beer dry. But, most important, it should do what it’s intended to do…. inflate a tire!
Let’s face it, there are a lot of 12-volt portable tire inflators on the market these days. Some have a lot of features and claim they can perform a variety of jobs. You’ll see tire inflators with all sorts of bells and whistles from digital gauges to handheld, and cordless to rechargeable. Some claim they are versatile and can “do it all”
In our over a decade of research and design, we’ve learned, when you try to put too many demands on one little piece of portable equipment, you’re asking for trouble. We all remember the TV with the built in VCR right? Then we all remember that same TV sitting on top of the new VCR you had to buy because the VCR in the TV broke. A 12-volt portable compressor should be just that…a TIRE INFLATOR. It should be portable, durable and ready to inflate your tires when you need it. It doesn’t need Bluetooth speakers, fancy digital gauges, or be able to jump your car or do your laundry (although, the laundry would be nice). Over-thinking and refining by adding different features and functions, just opens you up to owning a broken product that you throw away.
Keep it simple! If you want safety and the security of knowing you’ll be able to inflate a tire on the side of the road in minutes, or if you’re looking to air up and air down quickly out on the trail, then the Special Ops Air Armor M240 portable air compressor is for you. It’s just a quality, 12-volt portable tire inflator built into a cool looking ammo can - because some things are just better left alone.
