Viair 88p Air Compressor -- Good or Bad?

Here is the link to what I am looking into: http://www.amazon.com/VIAIR-Portable-Compressor-Sales-Shipping/dp/B006OHJLKS
I would like to purchase a portable air compressor, one that clamps to the Versys' battery. Not only would this be nice to have around the house for when my bike might need to be inflated, but I could also use this for my Jeep and eventual (someday) Versys road trip.

Given the price and Viair's reputation, this compressor seems like a deal. However, it draws at 20amps. Basic maintenance I can easily read and understand, but electrical stuff is still new learning. Is 20amps too much for the Versys battery to handle safely and efficiently?

Thanks!

If your going to spend that much just get this..http://www.stopngo.com/cycle-pump-ad...ll-trucks-too/ ...I have one its works great and built to take a beating. If you get it you might as well get the whole kit... http://www.stopngo.com/tire-mobility-kit-for-cars/ ..only thing the one in the kit doesn't come with the alligator clips like the unit sold by itself does....

18 ounces, 2 inches thick, 4.75 inches tall, 5.75 inches long. The pump is strong enough to bring most motorcycle tires up to 36 psi in 3 minutes. The built-in, backlit pressure gauge reads up to 50 psi in two-pound increments. Surprisingly, the pump only draws 5 amps...

Both seem like excellent pumps. The CyclePump appears tough, just wish it wasn't $100. The MotoPump is a nice price, but the plastic look somewhat wards me away. However, a few of you seem to use it.

Can I not go wrong with either, or does one truly have the long-lasting reputation versus the other?

Thanks.
