I'm not convinced on your driver less car analogy! However I think air floor sib people who pack up and fold down each time would say electric pumps are as much of a convenience as the hoover, the electric iron or the washing machine... ...You can manage without, and if you rarely need one it's probably an extravagant luxury, but if it's a "daily chore" then it saves time and effort.

I looked at these, mostly good reviews but the hose is usually the first part to fail. Absolute bargain though 👍

Pre-set pressure and 1bar at 35. Looks good, how easy would it be to swap hose, especially the coupling that attaches to the unit?

Bravo Pump

After 4 years constant use my Genovo GP80BD 12v battery powered high power pump has finally started to malfunction. Been a great pump but the salty air has finally taken its toll on the electronics and has developed intermittent faults so time to replace, probably with another one. Amazing its lasted so long considering it always comes on board with us.
In the meantime I have, but not regularly used, a Bravo BST 12 rechargeable, as never really got on with it despite being favoured on here. My question is it normal when the set pressure is reached the compressor slowly shuts down.....as mine seems to slowly peter out rather than shut off instantly. Done this from new. Any users confirm if this is normal.
Thanks.

From what I remember of mine it just stopped at the dial setting - the pointer on the dial completes a circuit when the needle touches it and cuts out the pump so I guess it should be more or less instant?

Only used it a couple of times but the Sevylor one does exactly what it's supposed to.

Never used the Bravo so I can't comment but it sure as hell beats the foot pump. The only thing l did do to preserve the baffles was to set it below max pressure initially so that I could 'top off' the pressure to max .Shut itself off as marked and it matched the pressure when I checked it with the gauge,
Cheap as chips compared to the Bravo and there seems to be an issue over the longer term with the Bravo pump where you'd just replace these with a new one at these prices plus Sevylor are a reasonable quality brand for inflatable gear.
