Electric pump

Can anyone recommend a 12v pump capable of inflating the tubes on a RIB? I tried to use one we have for blowing up airbeds at home but just not powerful enough. Thanks

Really it comes down to two price points. A bravo at 100 or more... or Sevylor and Itiwit models under 50.

The better Bravo models usually have the greatest flow rate sometimes by a factor of 3x compared to a budget pump which makes a great difference to inflation times and how hard the pump has to work.

All depends if your use is for topping up or inflating from scratch for some reason.

I bought an itwit just before Xmas; its worked far better than I expected. You can set pressure in psi, bar etc, pumped quickly to pressure and switched off. I ran it from a separate 12v supply no idea what the draw is on the battery, but very pleased for the price i have to say

good to here neil says 12v - 15 A at 15 psi

just topped my tubes up in seconds pumps as good as my old bravo IMO well made the hose is a bit stiff but its cold a very small point the pressure value writing is a bit small but i know PSI is at the top with glasses on so no big deal now. i paid 120 for my bravo 12 BT and lasted 2 years i think 3 of these will last the same
