I would not trust any compressor that does not have a regulator that I can see and/ or adjust.
I bought a little 6 gallon Bostitch pancake compressor for my son for Christmas, fully adjustable with both gauges for about $100 American. I wouldn't be without a compressor, although I don't winterize with one, I am very picky about tire pressures, and use mine every week for something. Don't forget to blow it down periodically to keep moisture out of the tank. I check my vehicle tire pressures, oil level, cooling fluid and washer fluid every Satuday morning. Have for years. I check Escape tires every time out and on the road. You get your $100 back by extending the life of eight tires and occasionally spot a problem ( something in a tire tread) before a flat on the road. Doesn't take up much room.
