The Porter-Cable PCC583B High-Pressure/High-Volume Inflator can also run on 12 Volt DC-power. The inflator is designed to deliver both speed and ease of use at a value customers can appreciate.
The Porter-Cable PCC583B High-Pressure/High-Volume Inflator is made to allow people who may be, literally, in the middle of nowhere quick and accurate inflation. In a sense, their motto seems to be: “No power? No problem!” Since it’s made by Porter-Cable, the inflator can be powered from either an 18V Lithium-ion or NiCd battery. But, it can also take power via a 12V DC power source – like a car or truck battery. It does this via the included 10-foot DC power cord which should allow access to all four tires as needed.
The inflator features two options. High-pressure inflation delivers up to 120 pounds per square inch (PSI) of working pressure and is ideal for inflating vehicle tires. But it also supports high-volume inflation, designed to tackle larger recreational items (think pools and inflatable slides).
The Porter-Cable PCC583B High-Pressure/High-Volume Inflator includes some other handy features as well, such as an automatic pressure shut-off function that conveniently shuts the unit off once the desired pressure is reached. The inflator can also be used as a pressure gauge by simply attaching the universal adapter to a tire stem and reading the pressure from the LED screen located on the unit. A convenient on-board storage area allows users to quickly store all cables, cords and hoses.
The new Porter-Cable PCC583B High-Pressure/High-Volume Inflator is available starting in November 2011 at Lowe’s, Amazon.com and independent dealers for $49.97. It will come with a 3-year limited warranty, one-year service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.
Rubbish review. Is the battery built-in? How is it charged? Air flow rate?
