Airhead 12V High Pressure Pump
This was more expensive than other air pumps on the site so I thought it would be better suited for use with a tube. When the items arrived, we were anxious to see the tube inflated. The air pump took longer than expected to inflate the tube and made a strange noise when running. We then went to the lake last weekend on vacation and were trying to inflate the tube for our daughters and their friends only to have the pump start smoking and hissing. Needless to say, we are not happy at all with this purchase and it will be headed back in the mail. The air pump is not sturdy and did not last through 2 attempts to inflate a tube.

Dream come true!
We have had a variety of pumps over the years, hand, rechargeable electric, then finally bought this one.
Finally got a pump that has a built in Halkey-Roberts/Summit Valve adapter - that in and of itself is a nice convenience. Plug the hose into the pontoon, switch 'er on, and my 'toon's ready to float in almost no time at all. Still have to top off by hand, but for as fast as this thing inflates, I don't really care!
Best part is it connects to the marine battery I use for the trolling motor anyway. And it's small enough that if I do have to take it with me, it's not taking up a ton of room.
If you've hemmed and hawed about getting an electric pump, this is really fast and easy to use. For bigger inflatables, no more pumping for what seems like forever - and the fact that it actually inflates to the proper psi is awesome! Less time setting up - more time to have fun!

Just used this item Aug. 2011 vacation at Lake Winnipesaukee. Inflated all of our rafts for grandkids. Worked like a charm. So glad we bought this for trip.

This high volume air pump works great. It is very convenient as it works directly off of your car battery or boat battery. It's a no brainer!
