I am using it on a 3.4 meter inflatable boat and it inflates 3 large
chambers to 3.5 psi in about 6 minutes. The keel to 4 psi and the
floor to 11.0 psi in a couple of minutes. The whole process takes
less than 10 minutes and the pump is easily dialed in to shut off at
the correct pressue. I use a small wheel chair battery and it looks
like it has the capacity for more than 6 times. The pump works
much better than I expect, it is real quality. Austin kayak shipped
quickly, online store is great.
The pump does what it advertises which is a good thing. I am
running it off a free standing 12V battery since my inflatable drift
boat sits on a trailer behind my car and the wires from the pump to
the car battery are too short to reach the boat. The volume of air to
inflate the boat is large ( 9 psi in the side walls and 11 psi in the
floor) and the load has not bothered the pump. It gets a little warm
but not hot.
This pump works great. I have Aires high psi boats. There is no
connection for this boat. I was able to use the hose that comes with
the Aires hand pump with this one to make it work.
I am on my 3rd Bravo pump. ACK has always been fantastic with
the returns. First one worked 3 inflations of my NRS Czar 6. 2nd
one worked 8 inflations. 3 inflations on the 3rd one now. When it
works it is utterly fantastic. Show up at the beach in a rental car, it
pumps my SUP while I change clothes.
I need to have the valve open for it to work in turbine mode. With
the valve shut it trips into piston mode right away and takes a long
time to fill. So I open valve and turn on pump, wait for a minute of
turbine until I hear the piston kick in, then turn off pump. Take off
hose, twist valve shut, put hose on again, turn pump on, takes
another 5 minutes of piston to fill to 15PSI.
Great pump, easy to use, more
time paddleboarding instead of
manually pumping air in. Highly
Excellent pump. Fills my NRS
EARL 6 in just a few minutes to 14
This pump is amazingly fast at
filling my Aire Lynx I inflatable
kayak. It transitions from
turbine stage to piston stage
smoothly and is relatively quiet
considering the amount of air it
is moving. I am completely
satisfied with my purchase.
I used to dread the 'workout' of pumping
up my inflatable paddleboat before every
use. Using this electric pump makes quick
work of that chore!!
Pump puts out good air. It has a ton of room
to grow to make it truly worth the cost. The
hose, for instance, is very stiff and kinks. All
of the adapters are smooth tubes that pop
out once the pressure becomes too high.
You have to stay with it, or start over once
the air blows out. The unit also could use a
110v plug. It seems like it should have been
included for the price. The pump just needs
a few enhancements for someone to go 'wow'
that has a lot of nice features. It's not there
Works like a charm, fast quick
and easy to use
