Be sure to experiment a bit, you may have to up the in-line fuse a little depending on what compressor you buy.
Yeah. I plugged a Harbor Freight “high power” tire inflator (I think compressors have tanks) into the auxiliary outlet in my Subaru Outback. I then got a lesson in modern oddball fuses. The outlet was fused 10A, not enough for that application

Outback has a 15A auxiliary outlet near the rear hatch. Nonetheless I bought a battery clip to “cigarette” outlet pigtail for that inflator. No risk in future.
