12V inlatable pump suggestions!

10 for an Argos pump to 120 for a Bravo pump. I've only got an old Avon R280 without air deck so don't need anything powerful - any suggestions, trying to keep costs down, all the sailing kit/costs are adding up

Are these any good 10 Buy 12V Portable Electric Pump at - Your Online Shop for Air pumps.

How about a Rule High Speed inflator for 70

Some of them are just for overall volume inflation reaching very low pressure, will still need a foot or hand pump to top sib to at least 3.0 PSI. Ask before buying.

Happy Boating

The Argos one will probably do the job, but slowly. The Rule hi speed inflator is excellent (assuming they haven't changed in the last few years since I last had one) - it draws too much current for a cigarette lighter socket and clips straight in to the battery terminals.
