BST HP Electric Inflator

Just wondering if anyone has any experience with one of these pumps.

We've ordered one for an inflatable with a high-pressure air deck but I'm having some second thoughts.

Comments will be appreciated.

To blow up a swimming pool float the size of a double bed, we used an electric leaf blower. We did not even have it attached to the wide air intake of the float. The float inflated in about 15 seconds.

Thumbs up

Hi, I've used one for about a year. Got it from West Marine for about US$180. It had poor reviews and i worried i had purchased a dud. It inflates my Achilles hypalon airdeck (9'6" or 2.85m long) in about 3-4 minutes. Only used it about 8 or 9 times, so far so good. The battery clips it came with were rubish so rewired a plug for a 12v outlet near the cockpit. Regards, Brad P.
