Air compressor to take in your trip

Im trying o find a good and small air compressor to drop on the saddle bag for a long trip.
Saw this one here: Slime 40022 12-Volt Digital Tire Inflator.
Any other better ideas?

Slime seams to be the only manufacture with small units but I'm not sure if they are good to inflate a flat tire on my GS.

Thanks.

I've been real happy with my Slime pump. Packs small.

I've got it wired to plug into the same pigtail hardwired to the battery that I use for the Tender Jr. Don't have to remove seat, side panel or whatever.

I have the Slime one as well, model 40001. Has it's own case and I use a small bungie to attatch a tire plug kit. Plugs right into the battery tender SAE pigtail.

Its good enough. You may have to inflate a bit, let it cool, then inflate more. They are all about the same.

Looks rough but works great proper quality item.
Had a Slime but the conrod is plastic and connects on a small pin which flogs out. the conrod wont stay on the pin after a while.

I've been meaning to do this to my slime pump...the cheap one you can find for $10.

I saw that recommendation on a RR the other day. Looks like a real nice unit but at ten times the price of the slime, and no, I don't own a KLR.
I've topped off the tires on my truck with the slime(325/75-17).

I can't find the exact one that I use, but this one seems comparable:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Schwinn-Te...Specifications


It's actually faster than you would think. I would say it's almost as fast as a cheap electric compressor, like the slime one posted. For the math people it's 50 CM3 per stroke, and it pumps air on both the in and out strokes. I just bought it a week or so ago so I can't comment on longevity, but I aired up a front dirt bike tire from 0 to 15 psi pretty quickly testing it.

Thank you everyone for the opinions.
I do have that $100 one on my bike that is at home, but I think that is too much for a pump.
I will get this slime and give it a try, for the price... could not get too wrong.

Tks. :)

I am waiting for Android to come out with a Air Compressor app.

Currently, though, I have one of those Slime compressors.

Interesting, that look exactly like the guts of a yellow harbor freight pump that I dismantled and tried to do the same thing with. My experiment was a fail and I went with the slime pump, but the design of that aerostich (or the harbor freight) is a lot more robust.
