I bought one from Aldi about 6years ago and it does a good job for bit over $100 while ago.
Think all the cheaper ones which seems  to be 2 different sizes and every company get painted in their colour and put their stick on.
I got the larger size one. For the price I am impressed at rate can air up 4 tyres pretty quick.

My Cuz bought a 3letter brand twin compressor for about $1k. Not very reliable, the company has repaired it everytime but that does not help in the bush. Its getting close to 5years so see what happens if there is a next time it needs repair.

I find any compressor works better hooked to cranking battery and engine idling. They draw some amps by end of 4th tyre

See the shop has their cheap 160 lpm 12v compressors for $100 currently on special. Pretty sure all those cheap ones come from same overseas factory.
