Kobalt Tire Inflators are one of the most popular products among automobile owners. They have been around since 1993 and they were designed with safety in mind. The tire inflator is very useful tool when it comes to keeping your tires from blowing out during a crash or other emergency situation. Unfortunately, there are some drawbacks associated with these devices as well. One of them is that they don’t work if the vehicle doesn’t have a working engine. Another drawback is that they require constant maintenance and regular replacement.
The problem with these two problems is that you need to keep track of all those parts and it becomes quite cumbersome at times. Also, you might not want to deal with the hassle of maintaining such a device because you could potentially lose it due to theft or other mishaps. These are just a few reasons why many people opt for using a battery powered tire inflator instead of the traditional electric ones.
One of the advantages of using a battery powered tire inflatable is that you do not need to worry about charging them up every once in awhile. You can leave them plugged into any outlet and they will last forever. On top of that, batteries are much cheaper than those used in the conventional kind.
So what makes these batteries so special?
They are lithium-ion batteries that are rechargeable. This means that you can just plug them into the wall when the power starts to wane and you don’t have to worry about replacing them anytime soon. On top of that, most devices come with cigarette lighter plugs so you can easily charge them up while driving along your favorite highway.
