Default RE: 12V Portable air compressor

Anyone have suggestion for a 12v air compressor? Looking for something small to carry on road trips, but something effective as well.

Periodically search on theBay for the BMW or VW air compressors that come in those cars, they are small and compact and would fit in the cubby with a plug kit. I think my Mazda has a similar compressor as well.
