Presta to air compressor connection

I like to top off before riding but a dread getting out the pump, so I would like to use my air compressor. Has anyone bought/made a connector that goes directly from the air compressor to a Presta stem? I know there is a little converter you can screw onto the presta but I'd prefer an elegant solution. ; )

It's called an air chuck, and yes to answer your question.,

I've seen duo chucks at Bike Pirates, a local volunteer bike shop. There are chucks that can fit over both shrader and presta. And there are chucks in which you flip over one side is presta and the other shrader.

I'm sure bike shops have these in their mechanics room. You can ask where they get them.

I tolerate the little adapters. Don't want to run the compressor at 7am but the little Ryobi inflator isn't too loud

I have this exact inflator from Amazon. It works fine for Schrader, but just does not work well AT ALL for presta. I ended up using a presta adapter on the occasions that I need to pump up presta tires with the compressor.

Yeah I was wondering about that. Mine's a dual chuck, but I can't find it for sale anywhere.
