This is the one I bought. Should be more than adequate

That does look right. The earlier version that I have (BST HP batt) had two (plus integrated battery options) versions, the BST for up to ~4PSI and the BST HP version for up to ~11PSI.

Is there an interlock to prevent accidental selection of the higher pressures that if accidentally selected would risk rupturing the tubes?

Also, you are trying to fully inflate the floor first on your fastroller before moving on to staged inflation of the tubes? I don't think this would create your issue but thought that I would check.

I don't think there is an interlock, I'll double check later. When I switch it on it goes straight to 4.3 and the plus and minus buttons won't change it.

I was inflating it floor first as per manual for the first time to fit launching wheels.

In terms of electric pumps no 'air movement' pump with a simple fan can give more than paddling pool pressure - these are all the cheaper ones - only a specific compressor type with a piston (ie the Bravo type) will get you higher pressures.

Does depend how often you need to pump it up and your budget - if pumping it up and leaving it up all summer then a Bravo is not really needed and a camp shop stirrup pump is fine but for those who pack away each time the Bravo is a great investment.

Upshot is you either buy an HP Bravo to do the whole job or use a basic electric airbed type pump for the voume and a double action stirrup pump for the final pressure.

Some info on budget options here:

Bravo BTP12 vs BST12 pump - what's the difference?

I have one of these (not chargeable version) and it works well at getting the bulk of air in quite quickly!
I have got just about every pump going I can count 9 off the top of my head

Best all rounder is the Bravo BST 12 HP
next is you have mains power Bravo 220-500 240V Electric Pump
Bravo 220-500 240V Electric Pump - IBS Boat Supplies bit of a luxury but is always my chosen pump at home

The Bravo BTP12 will deliver 12psi no problem. It is rated to a maximum of 14psi.

The piston pump takes over after about 1psi.

When you turn it on the preset pressure is displayed. Hold down the plus or minus button until the pressure readout starts flashing, then you can adjust it using the buttons.

After you have set the pressure to what you want, wait for the display to stop flashing and you are good to go.
The pressure setting is memorized until you next want to change it.
