      Use it to fill up large floating relaxation station with 5 chambers. Fills up in 1/2 the time of other pumps we have used. Pump does not overheat and the rubber hose stays cool as well. Would definitely recommend.

                        I've only used this a couple times to inflate the dinghy and SUP, but it works great. Exactly what I was looking for. The SUP needs 12psi and is a lot of work to get to full pressure. This pump inflates the SUP to the desired pressure in about a minute and shuts off automatically. The only negative is the the higher pressure of the SUP will blow the hose off of the HR adapter unless I hold it tightly. It is a minor inconvenience.

                                  I used this pump to inflate my 11' dingy and was unsure if it had enough power to quickly inflate it. I was pleasantly surprised. It was inflated in no time! Great product!

                                      We have a Mercury Air Deck Inflatable Dinghy, and it's a beast to inflate using the manual pump supplied with the dink (it's a good pump but takes a lot of work that is not great in the Florida Sun!)

                                      The pump does not come with an adaptor to fit the standard flush fit valves that are very common in inflatable dinghys like the Mercury.

                                      This pump does a great job. We got the model that has the air pressure gauge built in. Worth the money!

                                      It inflates our dinghy in about 5 minutes. I inflate the keel tube, air deck and the 3 side tubes to 1psi, that gives the boat shape and allows me to put the seat in place. Then reset the dial to 3psi and top everything up. Finally set the dial to 10psi for the air deck and top that off. No sweat (pun intended)

                                      To deflate the boat, we release each valve in turn just a bit to partially deflate each tube,deck and the keel. The after allowing the dink to sit and self deflate for a few minutes while I attach the hose to the suction input of the pump. About 10 seconds each tube with the pump turned on and the tubes are fully deflated and the dink is ready to stow in it's bag. The point here is that it does a great job sucking the air out, without that it's practically impossible to get the dink in the bag.

                                      The bag should last, it looks well made as does the pump unit itself.

                                      The unit is rated at a max current draw of 20amps... that's a lot! But it's a none issue when using our Truck's battery. It does not come with a cigarette lighter connector, and at 20amps max it should not be connected to one!

                                      Overall I'm really pleased with the unit. Neat, Powerful, gets the job done and looks like it will last.

                                      Definitely recommend this item.

                                      We use this to inflate a high-pressure floor dinghy (HP310) which has 4 air compartments. Set the auto-stop at about 1 psi pressure to get some shape to all compartments. Then dialed up the desired pressure for each compartment 3 or 11 psi.

                                      A no-brainer when compared to the effort required with the manual foot pump the boat comes with. (Wonder why WM hasn't bundled them together.) Alligator clips on the power cord can be used with car or boat battery terminals.

                                      Comments about Automatic Inflators:

                                      We wanted a 12 volt electric air pump for our inflatable SB275 boat and for the air mattress that we use in our Sloop Sailboat. The surprise came when I saw just how well it worked for the price. With the only exception being the pressure auto-shutoff dial will move settings all by itself when the unit is running due to vibration. So, always watch the pressure gauge and turn it off when you max pressure is reached, don't depend on the automatic shutoff. Also, the pressure gauge has a dual range (metric and US standard) numbers. BUT compared to the pressure gauge with our SB275 the scales are in reverse order, so make sure you are reading the correct scale when inflating your boat to avoid over inflation damage. This is also very good at sucking ALL the air from the mattress and boat for easy folding and storage. The unit is designed to operate from inside the bag. It is perfect for storage and even allowed us to store a few boat inflation accessories in one of its three compartments. The convenience of this pump far outweighs the minor inconveniences listed. I recommend this pump, well worth the money.
