For those who airbrush, I'm looking for opinions on compressors.. currently using a temptu air, which i LOVE for the portability since all of my work is on-location and it is super easy to travel with. However, I do not love their customer service... my compressor is less than 5 months old, and is already not working. This is the second issue I've had, as the original battery already quit working and needed to be replaced. Long story short, my compressor needs to be repaired, but while it is in the shop, Temptu has (in their words) 'no program to rent or replace'.. which means too bad for all of my upcoming clients I have booked. Instead of offering to send a loaner, they basically said too bad. They will of course fix it, but I'm out a compressor while this takes place. Needless to say, I'm irritated. So... I wanted to see what y'all use, since I will most likely be purchasing a new (and hopefully more reliable) unit. I need something small and portable.
It's good to know that I am not the only one. My compressor started giving me issues a few months after use. I contacted them to replace but they needed me to ship it in to repair. Fair enough, but I figured that would be at least 1 month for me to get back and I needed it for weddings booked. Now (1.5 years later), I have had many days and even had to hand apply when it would act up. It now sounds like it is choking to come on and will not work without the plug even when charged the entire night. I love the size, but now looking for alternatives.
