Just remember a booster is not a compressor. It takes air to make air so ya still need a compressor, or a full bottle to use the booster from

According to what I've dug up on that particular booster is it uses a single source to both operate the piston and compress low pressure air, it's basically a shoebox, that uses more air.. Should be a very durable piece though.

I sent the company an email confirming that it only needs to be run off low pressure air which looks like it does. The email I received from them should I mention within 30 minutes of me contacting them. Looks like I'm going to be trying one of these.

"Good day Dillon,

 we are pleased about your interest in our Altaros compressor booster unit. 
There was few customers which was thinking that compressor was self contained and just put out the high air pressure without needing anything other than just the regular air pressure to input.
  So for sure, this compressor booster need Driving ( workshop ) compressor , which has to supply at least 72 PSI , max 150 PSI.  Higher pressure and bigger amount of air workshop compressor can supply = faster filling of your airtank. It is possible use cheap workshop compressor which cost 100 USD, but filling time is longer, similar to driving compressor in our filling table:   Scheppach HC 24 .
Check table for times of performance for different compressors here:
http://altaros-compressor.com/main-page/performance/


We have best experience with priority insured parcel which is send by air. It is also cheapest option, shipping cost is 89 USD.
Price for Altaros compressor booster unit is 514 USD .

So total price is 603 USD including shipping.


I Just want to ask about power adapter which you need:

http://altaros-compressor.com/main-page/how-to-order/  i supose that you need  Typ A.
If yes, then unfortunately we sold already all adapters which we have here, we did not expect so big demand for this adapter type. Our bad.
I ordered few reduction on our adapters which should be here tomorrow. Normaly we use " Replacement 5.5mm 2.1mm DC 12V 1A Power Adapter Supply (100~240V / 2-Flat-Pin Plug) " .

New adapters for America/Canada market are on way, but they will be here mostlikely in 2-3 weeks.


S pozdravem / With kind regards

Sitting on the edge of my seat!  This is affordable for me. A dedicated scuba compressor is not.  Will be nice to see an alternative to a ShoeBox

You got to be kidding me.

From the video, this looks like the best HPA compressor for our guns and or bottles. I am liking this design.

the disassembly video is what really intrigues me. the high pressure side has me a bit confused though, there seems to be no seal on the high side piston. im guessing its just machined with tight enough tolerances to seal which then forces it through a check valve? anybody have ideas or can possibly explain this to me? obviously it works i just dont understand how.

It is going to be interesting to see if this device can shutoff at pressure more accurately than a Freedom8 which is ±300 psi if you're lucky!

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.
