Hi Guys! Some of you will have been reading about the exciting new compressor from Xisico that has been talked a lot about on the forums in the US. This is a heavily tested and improved version that doesn't require any water pumps, runs on 12v or on 110v with power converter included, but is powerful enough to fill tanks without fear of wearing it out.
They are on order and should arrive here in January. I'm excited to get my hands on one!
JSAR has done the final testing and improvement requests on them.

Good to hear. I’m interested as I need something to top my tanks back to 4500 psi.

I'm hearing some conflicting reports now on what these are rated to fill, so am waiting for an update from Xisico on the recommendation for bottle size and what will void warranty.
I'll update as I find out.
Regards,
Wes

Hi! I've got 10 coming soon, and the price will be somewhere around $685.

That seems like a very good price for a compressor something like the Nomad. Perfect for bringing out camping instead of a huge bottle or worse a hand pump ( man am I getting lazy) :D

Curious to know how it compares to the Nomad ll. Certainly the price is more user friendly.

It's supposed to be a lot tougher than the Nomad, I guess we'll see!

Here's a pic to compare size with the Yong heng. Also some test videos Travis at JSA did.

Wes, how does this compare to the Warrior 2? Also are you going to be restocking the Warrior 2?

I've got a few Warrior 2 still in stock, and I suspect we'll continue to stock the Warrior 2.
According to Travis these Xisico JTS outlasted all the other compressors he put them up against such as Yong heng. The Warrior is a great compressor but is strictly for guns and they don't reccomend using it anything over 250bar, even though it says 4500psi capable.
This one is supposed to be a lot more durable, though apparently the manual is still saying not to fill more than 500cc bottles. The one salesman says that it is ok to top up pony bottles, so 2 to 3l bottles, but I'm still waiting for confirmation on that. Travis was filling big tanks with it and running it over quite a few hours at a time and they never got hot, but sounds like he managed to kill a few eventually over several months of filling large scuba tanks, running continuously. He said they beat out the Yong Hengs by a long shot though and I think most guys are pretty happy with their Yong Heng compressors.

Thanks Wes. I am not interested in filling tanks. I am only interested in filling my 2 rifles (QB Chief and M11). So really not sure the extra $100 + is worth it to me. Not interested in the Yong Hengs either as really not a portable option IMHO. Hopefully you have something in stock in month or two when I am in a better position to purchase compressor. With 10 grand children Christmas can be a little tight for a few months *(especially when granddad also buys himself a present) :D

I know what you mean, with 4 young girls myself 8)
Either one of these should be a good choice for you, the JTS or New Warrior.
Thanks,
Wes

Ok thanks Wes. 4 girls eh? We have 5 and it was always fun around here! I was so out numbered, even the dog, cat (and I'm pretty sure even the goldfish) were all female. No shortage of pink and pretty things! LOL Enjoy raising those young ladies Wes, time sneaks past very quickly.

Yep, time flies, thanks! Yep lots of pink here too! 8)
I do have one girl that likes boy toys and colors better though, so at least I have one halfway in my camp. 8)
