12v electric pump suggestions

Hello, I have a new Honwave 4.5m SIB and am looking for an electric pump. Don't want to spend a fortune but don't want something that will be dead in a couple of years either. Any advice much appreciated...

did you not buy with an engine and get it free?

we also have 1 in stock if you need one but they are not cheap!

The BTP pumps are very good.

Are you looking for a 12 or 120 volt electric air pump ? Theere's a Bravo affordable 120 Volts which pumps very fast.

Happy Boating

I bought a BTP12 from Ribshop and it has been superb.

The unit uses a rotary pump to inflate the boat to about 1psi very quickly, then switches to a piston pump to achieve the pressure required.

You just set the pressure on the digital display and it stops when it reaches it.

I use a 7Ah battery to power the pump out in the field which is about the size of a bag of sugar and can be bought on ebay for less that 20.

Yes have to agree that the Bravo is a brilliant pump.
Does exactly what it says on the tin.

I use one of these for my Bravo pump and you'll need a charger too.

Yuasa NP7-12, 12V 7Ah lead acid battery NP7-12 . You can get battery and charger for 25 from Amazon.

Cheers

I have the slightly older Bravo with integrated battery. Its the more powerful HP version.

It uses a standard 7Ah sealed gel lead acid battery which looks similar to the one mentioned above. Lasts enough for floor (11psi) and 3 chamber (3.? Psi) inflation and associated deflation. Then about 4 hours to fully charge again using my Ctek 0.8 (that i use for other things) charger in (has automatic gel battery mode) before going into maintenance mode which keeps it fully charged.

I suspect you can just cut off any croc clips and replace with spade terminals of correct size.

I wish I knew this before I bought 30 more expensive integral battery version but it is nice to have it all in one bag which was worth the 15 difference.
