Best electric pump?

I bought a Honwave T38 today with a Marnier 25hp 2 stroke and am very pleased with the deal I got. However, it came with a foot pump only.

What is the best electric pump out there?

Ideally I'm after an integrated pressure gauge and auto shut-off facility once pre-set pressure is reached. Also, one with an integrated Li-On battery would be great but I'd accept a 12v input as worst case.

Thoughts?

Thanks.

Bravo GE 20-2 would meet your requirements.

Itiwit by far. I have 2 and a Bravo and I like the Itiwits far better. Decathlon have them

Here they are in action on my T38IE

Thanks fellas. The Bravo looks great but very expensive. Itiwit it'll be then.

You will like it I think it is far better than the Bravo and I have both.


Itiwit also does a nice hand pump double action for about 18 it is good for topping up

It may not be entirely relevant to a SIB but the Bravo will inflate to 20psi which is what you need for an inflatable paddle board. It's literally a pain getting the last few psi in by hand.

It's only for the sib. I'm far too lazy to manually pump.

One ordered from Decathlon, 10 cheaper than ebay and free postage!

All good.

Thanks.

For a Honwave the Itiwit has far better connectors. The Bravo does not come with a Halkey Roberts connector and the one you can buy fits quite badly

>>>Bravo does not come with a Halkey Roberts connector

Easy solution which I used when I had a Honwave. Buy a spare pump hose from Honwave... which is only about 7 more than just buying their end adaptor... and add it to the Bravo/Itiwit hose by your chosen method.. Then you have the proper Honwave fitting and a longer hose which is always useful.

On way but for the cost of the Bravo it should come with on. The Itiwit already comes with one that fits very well.


I say again. Itiwit less than half the price, smalled and lighter and better in several ways

I'm in the market for a pump and checked this out - the Nitwit gets very average marks on the Decathlon reviews. Slow, noisy, runs hot, not great connections, pressure gauge inaccuracies etc.

There's very poor data on the website - Plummy, what is the stated max recommended runtime? Bravos are 20 minutes which was less than I needed.

I'm still quite taken with my Sevylor 15psi one, and it was under 40 quid.

Ive never timed them but you could buy two for the price of a bravo so time would be beaten no more noise than the bravo IMO when you compress air it generates heat not that I found it hot, mine has a cigar lighter end which I have a female socket to crock clips no issues with either.

The run time on the itiwit is 30mins

It inflated my 5M rib from flat in 15 mins

Did not in any way feel hot

Have to say I am impressed with mine ( only had it two weeks !)

My Itiwit electric pump worked once and did a great job , but since that its gone totally wrong.Wont pump to the correct psi keeps turning off etc.
Also i bought the itiwit hand pump that is great to use but the gauge is really out and the pin on the gauge is so fat it would be hard to get an accurate reading.

Please could someone recommend a decent electric and hand pump?
Cheers
