Understood : So get to the Good habits plz
Well to keep it simple, you need to make sure that the tire pressure is kept at optimum level as suggested by the car manufacturer [You will see it mentioned on the door sideways on a sticker]
So put up a good habit of checking tire pressure when you top-up gas to your car. [at least once a month]
But what if the weather is bad or the air compressor at gas station not working … or you are on outdoor camping and you loose tire pressure due to puncture or temperature or even over time period tire will tent to lose air pressure naturally …
Best way is to have backup, get a Portable Tire Inflator
Yes, there are number of portable air compressor pumps for tires available in the market which are handy and can be kept inside car all the time.
They can be used to pump up air at any time in to your car tire as well as has multi-fold usage such as inflating the bicycles tires, trailer tires, lawn mower tires. And as a bonus feel free to use them the foot ball, holly ball, inflatable mattresses, camping tents, pool floats, toys, and so on.

Now my review on Audew portable air compressor:
Best Portable Tire Inflator Audew Dual Cylinder Air Compressor Pump Review
Its a heavy duty model which can be directly connected to your car’s battery terminals, this ensures best performance and can pump up life to totally flat tire in just 2 minutes !
But in case you are not comfortable for it get on to the 12V car charger socket plz.
Audew Dual Cylinder Air Compressor Pump looks well built and sturdy, the aluminium cylinders connected by tie rods provides confidence of stability during use, also the rubber pads provided at the bottom helps it from slipping our during the tire inflation operation.
To say when I use it on my car, it does not walk around like other cheap models in market!
The air compressor unit is pretty light, weighing around 6 pounds, which also has got nice handle for lifting.
Also the hose and power cord are winding type saving space and a good quality storage bag provided with the pump is pretty handy to me.
In operation the compressor makes some noise, however it is just for 2 minutes. Also I have one more single cylinder compressor at home which makes similar level of noise. So for me its no issues at all.
Continuous run time:
I have used it for my car and all tires together took not more than 5-6 minutes total.
As this is small unit my recommendation is not to use it for continuous use more than 10-15 minutes, the unit will get hot and can cause accidental burns if you touch. Also it can damage the compressor unit and reduce life.
Gauge accuracy & legibility :
As a matter of hygiene, I checked the gauge reading on Audew Dual Cylinder Air Compressor Pump and then cross checked at local gas station, and it was withing 1 psi difference which is fine … [who knows if the gas station gauge is calibrated and when!]
Coming to the pressure gauge dial, its simple white background, clearly marked and easily readable. Its traditional type of dial gauge which works fine for me.
Put on to actual test:
Well I don’t like to spend too much time for tire air filling activity and this compressor is very fast in that … most of the time when there is already air pressure in the tire .. I got the desired pressure in just 30 seconds, when I tried it on totally inflated tire it took about 2 minutes to regain to life, which is pretty fast I would say.
Hose and power cord length:
The hose provided is winding coil type which saves space when you pack it up and gets extended to all four tires when uncoiled.
The power cord is also sufficient to reach to the battery terminal and then to the pump.
AUDEW offers solid 12 months 100% FREE manufacturer warranty, gurantee replacement within 180 days of use and if at all you don’t like it get your money back in 90 days ! wow !! it shows confidence in their product.
Final Words & recommendation:
Audew Dual Cylinder Portable Air Compressor Pump is one of the Best Portable Tire Inflator I have used so far and after hands on testing I recommend it for my blog readers!
