Pros:Lightweight, compact and easy to use.

Cons:Power cord storage a bit lacking. Internal storage for extra fittings not organized

The Bottom Line: Compact, and lightweight. Simplified operation for use around the house.

The Kobalt 1.5 Gallon Capacity Air Compressor encased in a plastic body to protect wondering fingers is suitable for inflating car tires, bicycle tires and to powering light duty brads and nailers. Purchased for less than $110, you can find it at home improvement stores or hardware stores in your local area.

The fold-a-way handle that is incorporated into the design and is installed by the user allows the user to wheel it behind them or carry, while the storage pocket on the front holds the extra fittings including tire gauge, which unfortunately do not have slots in which the extra fittings can be placed. They lay loosely in the bottom.

The power-cord, very large and heavily protected stores beneath the air compressor between the wheels. The storage shelf though could be a bit larger to accommodate.

A single adjustment control gives the user a representation of what job each setting can do and with the easily readable air pressure gage helps keep tabs on the internal tank pressure.

Like any compressor with storage tank, it has the usual safety and drain valves. The main drain or moister drain is of course on the bottom with the pressure relief valve on the side.

The air compressor requires no oil and is a direct drive type of connection with no worry about loose belts. The unit is surprisingly quiet and stays in one spot thanks to its resting position when running.

If looking for a compressor without having to purchase the extras the Kobalt 1.5 Gallon Air Compressor will serve your needs.
