I am looking at a Super Cheap Auto catalogue and there are some cheap air compressor for sale. Does anybody have one of these?

In the picture the compressor comes with Alligator clips for connecting to a battery but it doesn't look like there is a power cord for a normal powerpoint? Is there any easier of powering the unit rather than having a spare 12V battery?

You can buy el cheapo chinese made 240V compressors (like GMC brand) from places like Super Cheap, Bunnings, Mitre 10 Mega etc for around $100. Generally rated at about 750W and are a gear driven compressor.

They'll do a much better job than those pissy little 12V ones and they also come with about 2yrs warranty so if ya use it to death in less than that time, just get a new one for free. For that money, they're almost a disposable unit.
