Electric air pump 12V (2 minutes instad of 12 min by foot :)

Post by warpi » Mon Aug 27, 2018 7:50 pm

Hello,

After pumping up my Ducky 13 by foot some 9 times, I decided to purchase a air pump. I made a big research finding out all existing on internet and eventually found Jobe Turbo Air Pump 12V. Very fast (>660 liters / minute), excellent pressure matchning (0.16 bar) and actually very quite in comparison to other pumps I have tested. Before it took 12 good minutes of hard foot pumping. Now it takes 2 effortless minutes. Highly recommended!

I recording a movie testing this pump for anyone interested.

An excellent pump and, in general, the right solution to use an electric pump.
I use this: https://intex-bestway.com.ua/pumps/66622 (price about 22 euros)
It is not very productive, but it has a built-in battery and it can be used autonomously, without wires. Very comfortably.

Wow, good price and convenient with rechargable battery. What do you mean it is not very productive? It has a airflow of 600 liters/min, similar to the Jobe Turbo and this I think it pretty good, like 6 times faster than with foot pump. I wonder if the pressure is sufficient or do you need to put in last pressure with foot pump?

The pressure is not enough. In the end, still need to add pressure by the foot pump, but with the filling of the main volume, this pump does well.

Aha, ok. The "Jobe Turbo Air Pump 12V" does have pressure enough so no need to use foot pump.
But of course, the intex is portable which could be convinient at some times. The Jobe pump does require that you have a 12V battery, like a car. Or you could , in theory, bring a portable 12V lithium battery with you for convenience :)
