All I can say is that I've had my Yuasa 7Ah battery since 2010 and used it many times.

I've charged it when needed with a 1 amp charger.

The battery is really designed as a backup power source for alarms etc but it has so far been faultless as a power supply for my air pump, which draws well over 10 amps.

It gets left in the garage (frost protected) over winter and I charge it maybe a couple of times, when I remember to do it.

Now in it's fourth season of use it is still fine.....and it only me 15.

The yuasi batteries are sealed lead acid batteries...deep cycle traction cells the arnt BUT they will take plenty of abuse for a year or so then throw away and get another..there primary perpose is back up batteries for fire alarms and such like. They will charge fine off a 4 amp car battery charger...buy use abuse and replace..

My first use of my new Bravo BTP 12v Digital pump didn't go well

The floor of my fast roller requires 11.3psi but the pump shows 4.3 psi and the plus and minus buttons won't shift it up or down. Have I just bought a faulty one or am I missing something obvious. I can't find a manual for it. Is there someway to reset the unit?

Probably no good for a 4.5m sib but this looks cheap and it would be interesting to see it pump up a sib, I'm at decathlon soon so I'll check it out, but to be honest at 12.99 I'm not expecting much

Requires 4 LR 20 batteries:

This one looks a better at 28, obviously both will require you to finish off with your foot pump.

Sounds like you didn't buy a HP version needed for high pressure floors? The HP versions of the Bravo pumps will supply the >11psi needed for the fastroller floor.

Hopefully you still have time to swap under distance selling regs of have an understanding dealer.
