With its simple and sleek appearance, the Sparmax Beetle compressor is compact and light, yet powerful for its size. The unit is pressure adjustable and incorporates the latest user-friendly feature: the Patented Smart-Stop.
The Beetle’s DC motor allows for universal use from 100V-240V (supplied with UK 3 pin plug). Operating at a quiet level is a hallmark of this unit, for a comparison, you can see the chart below:
10 Decibels = a pin drop
20 Decibels = rustling leaves
30 Decibels = whispers
40 Decibels = the Beetle compressor!
Not bad for a piece of machinery!
The Beetle's compact size makes it ideal for those who require to be mobile or have space limitations.
The Smart-Stop function of the Beetle is compatible with most airbrushes in the market. In exceptional cases of incompatibility with Smart-Stop, it can still be operated manually via the power switch, offering a compressor that is compact, quiet and powerful.
The Smart-Stop operates by detecting the presence of an airbrush in the airbrush holder. It pauses the compressor when the airbrush is placed into its holder and restarts it when it is taken off again. Pistol trigger & bottom fed airbrushes may not be compatible due to the trigger or bottle preventing engagement in the airbrush holder.
