The LVM one is excellent, has enough guts to inflate a dinghy. Rather some others that are really only designed for airbeds. The only problem is that is does not have a cigar lighter plug, but jump lead connectors, I questioned the manufacture about this and they said that the current it draws is greater than most lighter sockets are wired for, some 20A from memory.

I bought mine from force four, but I am sure that you could find them elsewhere.

Sharky: was that the one you were think of ? Just seen your occupation should have chatted to you about a clutch form my 90 !

Most after-market Lighter sockets start to melt at 12 amps with a few able to achieve about 16 so jump leads are a good idea. Having said that, there are other higher amp plugs and sockets available if you want to go that way. Des

This year I have mostly been inflating my Gemini by means of a hand pump... seems to be quicker than the getting the car into a position where the lead runs from the car socket etc... and has the benefit of keeping me fit as well...

However, if you are looking at buying an electric pump, i would go heavy duty if i were you - i have one over here for the 4wd and have gone through three different pumps because the connectors (usually made of dogy brittle plastic) have failed.

Now, i always have one of these as cheap backup...
