    I have the 5 in 1 version that has a inverter, compressor, lights, jumper. I bought it 4 or 5nyrs ago for about $100. I've been happy with it. I like to keep it in the truck to air up my mowers tires, or jump start if I'm stupid and leave a key on. The inverter worked great when I went camping, but somehow it shorted out this summer and smoke came out of the case.....
    I'm still happy with it and the fact I can charge it while driving is great.

    Icon hasn’t had the best reviews. Sockets are soft, flex head ratchets have a few issues.

    Consensus mainly that the wrenches are good, but that’s about it for hand tools at this point.

    I watched a pretty intensive test and review video on their torque wrench compared to a snap on. The icon in this guy's tests did really well.

    Stuff... and things
    I work with Snap-On tools at work all day and at least on the surface the only difference I can see in the Icons are a different groove in the handle. Otherwise they look pretty much identical, now that's not to say the internals aren't different though.

    I just got a nice creeper for 19.99 normally 49.99. Toolboxes are nice there. Small compressors are good for most people. Gloves are good price wise.

    I saw that too about the ratchets locking up if you put too much torque on them and the soft sockets. That is a bummer, I really wanted a set of the sockets. Good to see coupons out though, hopefully they work the issues out.

    Picked up 3 LED spot pods. Kind of surprised they use CREE LEDs. They are pretty decent for the price (on sale for 19.99 right now). Will work great on the trails.

    I have the HF 21 gallon compressor that had the oil in the middle of the circle to tell you it's full. Before I Fluid Filmed my truck today I noticed the oil was over the circle, so I had to drain some to get it back to the full mark.

    Does the oil level change on the 21-gallon compressor with use, the only thing I could think that brought it over the circle to the overfill mark is water?
