The cordless car air compressor
Small but mighty: This is the new Einhell cordless car air compressor CE-CC 18 Li. The handy mini compressor, which is no larger than a conventional cordless drill driver, has plenty of power. Without a battery, the portable compressor weighs only 0.75 kg and is the perfect mobile companion, requiring hardly any space. Here are where the little compressor impresses and where to put it to use.
Areas of application
Whether you're dealing with car, motorcycle, bicycle, road bike or e-bike tyres, the Einhell cordless car air compressor delivers up to 11 bar of pressure, making it suitable for inflation tasks requiring high pressure. Thanks to its high output – namely 12 litres per minute at 0 bar, 10 litres per minute at 4 bar and 8 litres per minute at 7 bar – even large tyres can be inflated in no time. And you can also use this compressor model both in manual mode and with preset pressure. The air compressor is also suitable for simply checking the air pressure, because it also indicates the pressure on the manometer.
The cordless car air compressor can be used to inflate car tyres as well as motorbike and bicycle tyres.
Here's how the handy compressor works
If the battery is plugged in, you can start using the car air compressor directly. If you need a specific valve, you should plug this in first. A ball needle, a bicycle valve and a high-pressure nozzle are included in delivery. The accessories are conveniently stored directly on the cordless compressor, so they are always within easy reach.
If you then connect the air compressor to a car tyre, for example, you can display the actual air pressure in the tyre on the LCD display. Using the push button you can select the units bar, psi or kPa. Then it's up to you: If you know the optimal air pressure of the tyre, you can set it on the LCD display using the preselection. The cordless compressor will then inflate the tyre to exactly the desired value at the touch of a button and will switch off automatically when the value is reached. With bicycles in particular, the optimal air pressure is often unclear. Here you can manually fill in as much air as feels "right" for you at the touch of a button.
Differences from other compressors
The biggest and most obvious difference to conventional compressors is clearly the size of the cordless car air compressor. It is small and compact, making it the ideal mobile companion. The Einhell cordless compressor PRESSITO is similarly compact and flexible, yet slightly larger. In addition, the car air compressor operates without oil, so it is not only suitable for use with mechanical compressed air tools. Like the PRESSITO models, it is intended for mobile use without compressor accessories, which is why the compatible valves are included in delivery and can be stowed directly on the housing.
