I like to be able to fix flats on the road. To this end I normally carry a small jack, tire repair kit, and bicycle pump in cars that have no spares, like my Saleen Mustang and now the Tesla.
However, the 20" performance tires used on the Mustang take over 500 pumps to inflate. I imagine the 19" on my forthcoming P85 will take at least 450 or so.
So I'm looking for high quality 12V air compressors. The good ones seem to pull 15-20 amps@12V.
Anybody know what the rating on the Tesla 12V outlet is? Wouldn't want to blow a fuse pumping a tire...
