Anyone tried this instead of a Bravo

I know Bravo pumps are seen as the gold standard for boat inflation. BUT... I see Decathlon have an inflatable pump with a pressure setting that they say covers up to 15PSI:

12V 15 PSI KAYAK SUP PUMP - | Decathlon

Has a cig socket rather than crock clips, so I assume it draws less than 10A so I guess may be a lot slower than the Bravo - but just wondering if anyone has tried one as about 1/4 of the price of a bravo with a battery...

thestig posted the same question without reply below. Someone need to get one and try!

Maybe check the Kayak forums?

Often wondered why the cheap car tyre inflators in Halfords etc would not work as they must be piston types to inflate to more than 1 or 2 psi.

It does appeal at the price but...

The flow rate is less than half my digital HP Bravo which makes me suspect it is just a piston pump with no turbine stage... and at the price that's likely/reasonable. If so will be really noisy all the time it's inflating.

Also if it were piston only it will overheat quicker. I see it shouldn't be run for more than 10mins at a time and folks say it takes virtually that time to inflate a kayak. So perhaps for a modern large tube SIB of 3m+ it won't do the job.

Despite being a cigar lighter connection the instructions say it should only be connected to a "high output" cigar socket... not sure how you'd know.

I'd very much like to see competition for the Bravo range but I'm not sure this is it.... but at 35 someone should try one.

I've merged the two threads.

Inflatbale Kayaks aren't usually very high pressure. Its the inflatable SUP guys that go high pressure, but then they aren't also doing high volume.

The Bravo pumps claim 450L/min the Sevylor is claiming 190L/min so its going to take you twice as long.

Typical tyre inflators run at tiny flow rates (but "very" high pressure). Really cheap ones are about 5L/min, "premium" ones are 20-35L/min.

Good review...



What does come to mind... many folks are prompted to get a Bravo when the buy an HP floor SIB and struggle to get it to pressure. At 35 this might be worth it just to top off the tubes and inflate an air floor??

Good review

Could be ideal for small sibs, but I expect it would be running for more than ten minutes to inflate a 3m sib so would need to let pump cool before completing inflation

I suspect U.K. Warranty though unlike bravos

Also, found it on Amazon if you want to look through the 139 reviews. Search for "SEVYLOR 12V 15 PSI KAYAK SUP PUMP"

Very mixed reviews there, most agree that the hose is poor quality, but the pump seems "ok"
