Cordless 12 volt air compressor by Campbell Hausfeld. I have found that their pumps are fairly reliable, seeing as that I have had no problems with multiple >70 psi loads.

I, myself, have a slightly larger version with a more powerful internal sealed lead acid battery that, in turn, allows for faster compression.

They burn out fast, no matter what the manufacturer. They are designed to fill tires once in a blue moon, not huge chambers dozens of times in rapid succession. Besides, they're slow. Just rent a N2 bottle and get a regulator. Ask Navigator7 for the specifics. It's worth it.
