Title: Hatsan Spark ac/dc compressor
Post by: Airnut on December 02, 2018, 10:27:59 AM
Anyone have any experence with this portable compressor?
I see Hatsan has them on sale $419 shipped.
It looks like it is along the same lines as the Nomad?

He's a cute little feller ain't he? Looks to be a little over half the size of the Air Ventury portable unit.

Has no adjustable auto-shutoff, no fuse. Filter,and the 12 volt converter is extra cost. The Nomad II is a much better unit for the money in my own opinion. The problem with these small compressors is they get beat because people try using them to fill SCBA and buddy bottles. They are only capable of filling small cylinders directly to the gun. They don't put out enough volume and would have to run to long ultimately causing failures. Many of these compressors share the same China components but I will say the way Air Venturi contracted the design and build was very well done. I did have one that I looked at inside and out and was very pleased with the features and performance for field use. In the end I don't think these will ever take the place of a large tank or large compressor, for field use the Nomad II is so far the best option I see at the moment.

On sale $419.99 with free converter and free shipping.
Well fill air gun up to 1 liter bottle. (as per hatsan) Web site does not give much info. Implies that it does have filter. I have contacted hatsan for more info.

Frank, if I didnít already have their lightning compressor and a tank from Airhog, I would jump on that spark compressor. I saw the ad for the sale. Came with everything for that price.

If you donít mind, when you do get one and start using it, maybe post up your review opinions? It would benefit all.

Thank you, Frank

i gotcha... i just ordered the spark compressor without the ac/dc converter.
i have made my own thats capable of 55amp output @ 13.4vdc.

you can buy about the same converter that the spark has on ebay for around $40 shipped.

just wanted to see how you liked it. mine should be here after next weekend.

thanks ;)

The current price is $399 shipped on sale at Hatsan.
Hatsan has assured me that when they get both units in stock that they will send me the
compressor and converter for the bundled sale price of $420 shipped. I had considered just getting the compressor and buying the converter from another seller. I decided to hold off and see if Hatsan is true to their word.

I wouldn't doubt it's the same thing that Mrodair use to have.  I'd say by the looks of it that Mrodair is close to belly up by the looks of their non updated website ???

It is not the same as mrodair model.
I had one of them and my son bought a spark last month on sale for christmas.
Close in looks but far from it in internals.

So, I wonder how different these are from this one on Alibaba.com for $240?

i seen that Paul and compared a few things.
in one of the pictures....it shows a person's hand on top of the compressor.
the spark is larger than that.

there is no support or service in the states for this, hatsanUSA has 1 year warranty and return/refund policy on new equipment.

thats why i decided other than the 30% off code (which is not available now)
to order the spark for portable use.

Thanks John.  I'd like to get a portable, but will probably wait till spring.  Right now I just shoot in my back yard, so no real need for a portable, but I'm hoping to find someplace to roam the woods and shoot, so having one I could connect to a battery would be nice. 

I didn't receive the 30% off e-mail from Hatsan even though I checked the box on several purchases from them.  Maybe because I have only purchased refurbs direct from them and ended up sending them back for service, they don't want me to purchase anything else from them!  LOL! 

I'd have jumped on that compressor at 30% off because I don't really need the power supply.  I plan on using a 12V Mower Battery and keep it charged with a trickle charger when it's not in use.  That should suffice for refills while in the field.

Lol you beat me to it Frank! I just saw the Spark on Field Supply for $387.41 and was going to post it as well. I want to jump on it, but I wish there was more info and reviews on it. I guess I'll hold out a while longer.

Yes Tom, I would like to know more about them also. They are not described very well as to what makes them tick!! No auto shutoff or anything like that.
Title: Re: Hatsan Spark ac/dc compressor
Post by: greenbastard on December 30, 2018, 03:36:27 PM
I agree Frank, but hopefully the members who are buying them now will post their reviews on them in the future.

just chiming in - if folks end up ordering from field supply, use ďwick5Ē for $5 off and if you use ebates, you should get 3.5% cash back.  Always try to pass on savings/deals when I can. 
Looking forward to reviews on the spark compressor.  I will say that having a compressor is life changing.  I was lucky enough to go 1/2 in on an air Venturi compressor last year my good friend who lives a couple streets over from me.

How are you and your spark gettin along??
Title: Re: Hatsan Spark ac/dc compressor
Post by: DadAndy on February 05, 2019, 05:56:44 PM
I as well am interested. I got suckered in on the Air Venturi Booster that works off the compressor. It stopped working and had to send that heavy thing back for repair. They sent it back repaired and within a month it blew out again. I attempted to find out what had happened myself and took it all apart (which voided my warranty) and never did find why it won't work. I now have a $750 booster in the corner of my shop that doesn't work.
It did spoil me while it worked so now I am in the market for something like the Spark or probably the Nomad II.
I had jumped too soon on the booster before I had seen enough reviews...It is now discontinued I believe...wonder why?  :-\

the spark is working great !!, sorry for late reply...its ending week deer season here and i got 3 grandkids that are wide open !!!
all combined, there just about as much as me.... ;D

its been filling every gun that we have while at our hunting camp to keep them 100%

we also hunt small game with them between deer hunts with PB's and big bore ag's.

i know i promised someone some pictures but its been a rush and i will get them out soon.

so far i will rate the spark as... a positive investment for my family and myself's needs. prolly working on about 8hrs of total run time, i cant remember what the hour meter (that i installed) said before i put the spark away last sunday.

with a 3-day hunting weekend for me coming.....it will get used purdy-much everyday 8)

Post by: Lastdog on February 21, 2019, 03:42:52 PM
Got mine at field supply. Bought it and got it one week later. Been using it off and on for two weeks. No problems at all yet. Fills rapidly so the auto shut off really doesnít matter to me. If I was filling a tank it might but just filling guns. So far very happy.
