The Everstart jump starter is one of the newer models that features an air compressor built into the jump starter. While the air compressor works great, it can be confusing trying to figure out how to use it, especially for the first time. This article will go into detail on how to use air compressor on the Everstart jump starter.
How to use air compressor on Everstart jump starter
To turn on the air compressor, press the center button directly under the word AIR. Next, you select the desired air pressure using the + and – buttons.
Below is a step-by-step guide on how to use the air compressor to inflate a tire.
Step 1: Connect tube to tire
To get started, you must connect the air tube to your tire. The air tube is located on the backside of the jump starter at the top. Once you have firmly connected the tube to your tire, you can move to step 2.
Step 2: Turning on and selecting psi
Now, press the center button that is located directly below the word “AIR”. Once you press this button, the digital screen will show the current PSI of your tire.
If your car tire is below 32 PSI, I recommend you add some air. The best air pressure for a tire is 32-35 psi.
Now, you must use the + and – buttons to select your desired pressure. I suggest you select a PSI of 33. Once you have your desired psi set, press the center air compressor button. This will turn on the air compressor.
You should immediately start hearing a buzzing sound as the air compressor pumps air into the tire. You should also see a flashing tire on the digital screen, which means the air compressor is working.
As your tire fills up with air, the digital screen on the jump starter will display the current psi. Initially the psi will increase rather quickly. However, as the psi gets closer to the desire target, it will start increasing at a slower rate. This is a built-in feature which helps prevent your tire from getting too much air.
Step 3: Turning off the air compressor
Luckily, you don’t have to worry about turning off the air compressor once it hits the desired target. The air compressor will automatically shut off once it reaches the psi that you input. Once this happens, you should remove the air tube from the tire.
One of my favorite features of this air compressor is that it has a no leak air tube. This means that once you unscrew the tube from your tire, your tire will not immediately start losing air.
Step 4: Return air tube
The last step in the process is to put the air tube back into the jump starter. The only downside of the air compressor is that there is not a lot of space for the tube. Try your best to fit it into the tube holder, and try not to bend the tube too much, as it can cause damage to the tubes over time.
All in all, this is one of the best jump starters with air compressor. I hope this article helped explain to you how to use the air compressor feature on the Everstart jump starter. Overall, I think the air compressor works very well and can inflate a full car tire in a couple of minutes.
Even if you don’t use the device to pump up your tires, it is a great way to at least check the psi of your tires. I suggest checking the psi of your tires in the beginning and middle of winter. This is because most car tires lose air pressure when the weather gets cold.
