The Kiteboard Magazine Review:
The unit worked like a charm, outputting at near full capacity until pressure reached about 3 PSI, at which time the pump switched over to a low volume, high pressure piston pump until it reached the exact PSI set.
We tested the pump on a 12m single inflation kite and time ranged from 1:42 to 2:21 before it reached our desired setting of 8 PSI.
We pumped up our 12m kite about 7 times before we felt like the unit was running out of juice.
Can blow up about 4-5 17m plus sizes kites on one charge (unit must rest every 15 minutes and has auto shut off feature if overheats).
Those that live in light wind places know that they often have a very small window of time to get to the beach, pump up their 16-17m kites, and hit the water before the wind dies.
We found that these high-pressure portable kite pumps greatly expedite the setup process and get people on the water faster and with much less effort, saving more time and calories for the water!
This pump will go up to 12psi and comes with a carrying bag, built-in 12v sealed lead acid battery, 110/240v travel charger, smart charger: red light for charging and green light for fully charged, 8ft extension power leads to connect on another external battery (ie. car/boat battery), carabineer connected to bag to clip onto the leading edge of the kite, 6 foot flex hose with 3 different nozzles for kite inflation, and 8 adaptors for raft inflation, and one NARU valve with 2 silicone gaskets for inflatable boats.
