The HV35 unfortunately is not without issue. Some of the build quality looks questionable(rounded screw heads, cheap hardware).
It came with an extremely junky plug. In fact it was broken when the unit arrived. No real problem for me anyway. I added about an extra 10ft of wire and a set of gator clips(as on battery chargers) that way I can connect it direct to the battery and avoid pesky blown lighter plug fuses.
I have also ordered a Viair 70P compressor. At $39.99 it is in the same price range.I hope to be able to review it as soon as I receive it.
I am hoping for a unit that is of better build quality as my main ideal is having a dependable unit as well as a fast performer.
the box says 14 amps, the unit says 10 amps.
I can't say it's not fast it is fast (from 28 to 36 PSI in 30 secs), it is small, but the broken plug and the pressure gauge is not much accurate, so.
it's agood backup for your car but not satsfying for a guy who is looking for well built stuff like me.
This HV35, while not quiet, is noticeably quieter than the Slime Co. one. And it pumped my 7-gallon air tank from 50 PSI to 105 PSI in about 15 minutes. That's perfectly adequate performance, and quite good for the price. The sheilded output tube got pretty warm during that time, and the pump body got hot, but that didn't seem to affect its performance. No smoke, no slowing down, or other signs of distress. I consider this compressor to be a very good value for the money. It would be nice to have a clip-on output spigot rather than the screw-on one, but that's a minor quibble.
It comes with a peel-off label on the gauge, that says it might read as much as 10% higher or lower than the actual pressure it's measuring. I found that to be true - this one reads about 10% higher than three other gauges I measured it with.
PROS: Compact, not as noisy as other compressors, takes reasonable time to pump up an air tank. Low price. No performance problems.
CONS: Gets kind of hot, but most compressors do. Screw-on spigot instead of snap-on. Gauge needle quivers as it runs. These are all minor complaints.
I consider this compressor to be a good value for the money. It would be nice to have a clip-on output spigot rather than the screw-on one, but that's a minor quibble. I was looking for a compressor that would do the job and not give me the grief the cheaper Slime Co. one did, and this one fills the bill.
Comes in a small cloth pouch which is great for tossing it in the car. I don't know why there are complaints about attaching/detaching the hose, it has a thumbwheel that makes it easy. And I prefer the screw on connector to a tire vs. the quick latch types. I always had trouble with the quicklatches if you didn't get them on just right.
10/31/11 - I've noticed some people worried about blowing a fuse. You should have the engine running when you use this to avoid that. Also, it amazes me that some people knock this for cord length and/or 'cigarette lighter plug'. The total length is in the description and there are pictures of the lighter plug if you look. Longer cords make for bulkier items and as it is, it will reach your car tires. Note: 12 Volt is NOT going to plug into a wall socket without some sort of adaptor).
As far as longevity, I made my review after only having this for a few weeks, so that could be an issue?

I've been using the HV-35 for about a year. I suffer from an unfair amount of pin hold leaks in my tires, so it is very handy to drive with this tucked in my back seat. Read morePublished 1 month ago by David Brooks
