Tornado I Compressor:

The Tornado I compressor was the smallest compressor from Inflation Zone.   It was also physically the smallest compressor in the test.

The Tornado series of compressors are very compact and offer quiet power for their price and small size.   The company strives to offer the best product by paying attention to small details such as using Lucas Oil in their compressors vs. some cheap no-name.  The results: a great compressor at a great price that I believe will last quite a long time.

The Tornado I came with a great carry bag that the compressor and all its accessories fit into with room to spare.
The unit has a cigarette lighter plug and also comes with a dual cigarette adapter that lets you tap straight off your battery.
During our test it took us 11:21 to inflate 1 tire from 10-35PSI, and during the real world test it took us 46:05 to do all 4.
