    Just plug in any outlet you should not have any issue, it is not drawing anywhere close to 25 to 30 amps.

    Where can you actually get a drawing and buy internal parts for these air cooled compressors? I have been interested in the versions that have the DC power supply built in, but without a reliable source of parts, and documentation it's a throw away device.

    On Aliexpress,tons of parts available.

    I prefer Tuxing brand,lots of videos on teardown and rebuild on youtube.

    They are pretty simple to work on.

    My $215 compressor, just like the RL-mini and similar to the Nomad !!, is being shipped.  Was mentioned earlier about adding a few drops of silicone oil (about 30 weight) after every few runs and then do a silicone oil flush of sort every 10-15 runs.  If this no-name compressor does not have that special port where you can drop the silicone oil inside while running, what about a few drops silicone oil inside the air intake?  From my HVAC days I remember adding refrigerant oil along with the freon from a vacuum.

    Is there any downside to using a 3 ft hose with these cheap compressors?

    Found this Chinese unbranded PCP air compressor sold online at several places.   Are these sold under any brand name?  What is the reliability, etc? 

    -air-cooled, no oil 

    -0.6L or less

    – 30 mins max. run time

     

    Please see my post on this type compressor I got from R&L Airguns. I may have screwed something up in operation of it but parts, except o-ring, blast seals, etc. are hard to find, IMO.

    If you find them, kindly let me know!

    I just ordered the compressor with the auto-stop and intigrated power supply from Vevor Friday afternoon. I received a UPS tracking number, but it probably won't be picked up by UPS until Monday.

    I was thinking the same as. you about making it easy to periodically put silicon oil into it. Also if it makes it through the 1 year warranty, I plan to install an hour meter wired to the compressor circuit. They sell for about $8.00 on ebay.

    Prior to buying it I contacted Vevor regarding availability of parts, and they were upfront about it saying they do not stock any. They did say they would be happy to contact the factory for me if  needed. Obviously this means that if the unit fails under warranty, they will just replace it with a new one, which is fine with me.

    Well the  compressor from Vevor arrived, and I used it for the first time to fill my Avenger. While I didn't think to time it, it only took a few minutes to go from 1000psi to 3800 psi, which is where I set it. When it turned off, the temperature read 27c. This device has one hell of a fan. After I was done, and opened the relief valve, I started the compressor again for about 20 seconds to purge any moisture.

    It came well packed and had the useless instructions, but overall it looks and operates great. They charged me $279.95 including shipping, and no tax. The listed price on the Vevor website is about $100.00 less than on ebay. If it lasts, this is a hell of a value.

    Mine came in pho carbon fiber, looks classy.

    Look at this one I bought on Amazon yesterday for $379. It is more expensive then the one you're showing here due to the features I've circled in blue. It seems to be a great compressor for the price/reviews. and they are sold fast. Talon Tunes sells this exact compressor for $429 btw and he has a YouTube review video too. Check it out.

    Yes, that seems like the one some airgun dealers carry under other names with the auto-stop, etc features.  The good thing is that since you got it from Amazon you should have a warranty and/or return option.

    The one I purchased for $279.95 has all the same features. It's identical except for the color.

    Exactly. I also figured that if Talon trust this compressor enough to sell it under their name, it actually might be a good one to try out.

    They are all the the same, the only difference are the names and colors. In the automobile industry this is referred to as "badge engineering," where they sell the same car under different names while only changing the trim. There may be one difference, warranty. You may pay more to have Ebay or Amazon behind the product. In this case the difference is a minimum of $100.00.

    Damn these are going for $468 on Amazon!  +$200 mark up. I like the black carbon fiber finish on yours better though :)

    Before I ordered it I contacted Vevor, and they said that they do not have any parts for it, but offer a 1 year warranty.  I believe this means that if it fails, they probably will either return your money or replace it with a new one.

    Ideally if it fails it would  be near the end of the warranty period, and you could start all over again with a new one.

    There are 2 differences between these and some of the higher priced models like the Nomad ll, a water trap with a drain under the cabinet, and possibly more important a port to inject silicon oil at the compressor inlet. I think the oil port could be added later, but not having opened it up, I can't say for sure.

    If it makes it through the 1 year warranty period, I will add the oil port, and an hour meter.

    All these compressors come with a minimal external dryer. If I upgraded to a larger dryer, that should eliminate any advantage of the Nomad ll drain port.

    I agree with you regarding the color, my photo doesn't to it justice.
