An inflation comparison test was conducted by an independent party, using different compressors to inflate a 37″ tyre on a Jeep Wrangler from 0.8 Bar to 2.2 Bar. Six different compressors were used and the inflation times are indicated below, with the manufactures capacity rating as indicated on the product as well as an approximate pricing as far as available:


1. Chinese make compressor                       Capacity indicated: 160L/hr,       Cost: R 2000   Inflation time:  4:00 minutes (note the spec is per hour, which equates to 2.6 L/min)

2. ARB Single cylinder                                     Capacity indicated:                      Cost: R 4500    Inflation time:  3:30 minutes
