12V. air pumps for inflatables

David Platten 2616
I'm sure a number of you have them, but I'm tired/frustrated with searching - unsuccessfully -  the internet for a 12V. pump that will a) inflate an Intex Challenger K2 kayak to adequate pressure, b) deflate same, c) actually work, preferably without breaking down on first use like the cheapo (sub£15) one I bought, and c) - the tricky one, this - less than the £125 price of the kayak! Anybody got any recommendations?
 Regards, David

Hi David,

 

With my (now deceased) sevylor river x 2 I used a Coleman pump in the cigarette lighter to shift the major volume of air and it was then a small task top up to full pressure by hand. I think it was 2 psi which is fairly hard. The drop stitch floor was 7psi. Noisey pump though- shattered the tranquillity of the river bank!

Hi David,  My sub£15 pump has given good service on my "tender" for a
number of years (though it never occurred to me to use it for
deflation). It runs off the boat battery and works fine, if a bit
noisy. Get another and try again.
