Just purchased this Gooloo 1000 amp peak and 20800mAh to power a Viair p 88p portable air compressor.
Worked awesome! Now I don't have to worry about the 12 volt cigarette fuse from tripping.

One trick i employ to prevent the fuse from burning out is to start the compressor before attaching it to the tire. This stops the sudden load on the startup and protects the fuse.

My prior BMW 335 had only a 20 amp fuse for the cigarette lighter. I had blown it with that same Viair compressor the OP has. They are good quality compressors - can do high pressures for road bikes.

I use it to power up my electric scissors jack when I switch my wheels.

How much power is lost, when you store it in the car during the winter?

Not good enough. Starting current should be managed with simple electrics. Having powerful brushed DC motor directly to the plug is not "wise enough".
