The one thing that I do know is that if not properly inflated, They don't perform as well as they can and wont last as long either.
I leave my dink inflated all of the time at it doesn't lose much air - I Think.
If I had a good High pressure pump, nop doubt, I would take my dink with me when travelling to see my kids and grand kids. Right now, it is too much trouble. I will be ordering the better one in a week or two for almost $200 US Dollars. It comes with a pressure gage and built in rechargeable battery. Completely self contained. I believe it will max out at about 12 PSI which is a little above what I would need for the air floor
I know I will be happy with it.
Hand pumps don't "max out" at 3psi. You can get over 12psi from the DA stirrup types.
You probably won't get more than 1 psi from a non-piston (ie fan driven) electric pump.
