DINK'S TIPS:
I use the LVM Hi-Speed Pump with a 12 volt Gel Cell battery which I keep in a plastic carrying case. I carry the battery, pump and case in my car trunk so it is handy to use. The Gel Cell battery will pump up about 20 of my Water Strider Rafts on a single charge.  If you clip an LVM Pump directly to a car battery do not use the pump with the car motor running as it produces excessive voltage. When you're inflating or deflating your raft and you hear the pitch of the pump motor change it is then time to stop pumping.  You will have to top off the raft with a foot pump to make it hard enough to float efficiently. The LVM Pump is the fastest inflating, lightest weight portable electric air pump available.
 

 
New! - MB 80 C & MB 80 A Electric Air Pumps for Rafts  
Our most compact and lightweight 12 volt pumps for raft and inflatable boat inflation.
 

The MB 80 C is a compact 5" x 5" x 5" electric air pump that comes with battery clamps or the MB 80 A comes with a car lighter plug and weighs only 1 1/2 lbs.  The MB 80 C or A will pump up to 1.1 psi and will deflate as well as inflate your Water Strider raft or inflatable boat. Rafts or inflatable boats will have to be topped off to higher inflation requirements with a hand pump.  To increase the life of the pump, stop the pumping action when the pump motor changes the pitch noise.  Don't over work an electric pump if you want to achieve good performance.

DINK'S TIPS:
I like to carry an extra 12 volt battery in a plastic carrying case so I can carry the battery and the Bravo 12 volt air pump out along the rafts so I can easily pump them up to capacity while getting my fishing tackle ready to go. I use a gel-cell 12 volt battery for this job. Mine is a Power Sonic model PS-12330 U1 12 volt 33 amp battery made by
Power Sonic Corp. The battery will pump up at least 12 Water Striders before it needs recharging. I use an Battery Tender Junior 12 volt 0.75 amp battery charger that is light and does a good job charging the Power Sonic. If you decide to set yourself up this way I recommend getting a battery case that has a lid and carrying strap. I also use the Gel Cell battery to power my electric trolling motor. The Gel Cell is completely sealed so the battery can tip over and roll around and not make a mess. The Gel Cell Battery is also about half the weight of a regular battery. You can find this battery in a place that services electric golf carts and wheel chairs. Having this setup makes it really nice for everyone who's floating with you. Have fun! - Dave

New! - K-Pump model K100   

The model K100 is without doubt the most compact, easy to use, high volume pump you could ever own. It weighs slightly over 2 lbs. and measures 3” by 22”. If you value space and stowability without sacrificing performance, this is your pump. It easily outperforms foot pumps and the standard “two way” barrel pumps in volume and ease of operation. The model 100 has fast become a favorite with a wide range of users such as: inflatable kayakers, float tubers, pontoon boaters and yacht tenders. With the included adaptors you can use the pump on most air mattresses as well. If you are searching for a pump that is: very compact, easy to stow, high volume, easy to operate and very durable, this pump's the best value for your money. Don’t buy ANY pump until you have compared it to a K-Pump..

K-Pump model K200

T
he model K200 is a new model in 2005. It weighs in at 2 lbs. 8 oz. and measure 3” by 32”. It has almost double the volume of the Model 100 and is designed to be the best pump for “topping off” you have ever seen. There simply are no equals... This is a “must” pump for all rafts, cata-rafts and pontoon crafts because you can stand upright when using it. The stroking action is effortless, yet highly efficient. There is simply no comparable pump that will produce as much air volume with less effort. Commercial river guides acclaim this pump to be about as valuable as their floatation jackets. If you have a back problem, this is “your” pump!

New! -
K-Pump model K40


This is the pump for you if you have an “IK” or a “kickboat”. The goal in the development of the K-40 was to make a more compact version of the K-400 so that it could be stowed when space is limited.

Only 24” in length and weighing only 3 ½ lbs the K-40 still produces 70% of the volume per stroke of his bigger brother the K-400. The K-40 is also fitted with a unique handle/sling strap which makes it easy to pump and easier to transport.

Like all K-Pump models, it comes with a stowage bag, assorted adaptors and a sample tube of superlube. synthetic lubricant.

The K-40 like the K-400 will work on most all valves including the older “military valves”.

Item Name:  K-Pump model K40
Shipping weight:  3.5 lbs.
Price:  $175.00


K-Pump maintenance information may be found here.

Watch a maintenance video for the K40
model K-Pump.

 
   
DINK'S TIPS:
The K-40 and K-400 pumps are newly designed. The new design has solved the problems of hoses and adaptors for every valve and having to have 2 pumps to do the job.

The K-40 is a compact dual action pump that really works. It has fast large air volume and will also top off a raft very quickly. Being light, 3 1/2 lbs. and only 24 inches long I can take it along and never know it is there. The inflatable Kayak users will also love this pump because you can pump it up while sitting in the water and not have to reach shore and get out to do the job. Use the K-400 for large rafts when weight and length is not a problem.
 
 
 
New! -
K-Pump model K400

The K-400 "The Outfitter's Pump".

Finally! The innovative breakthrough you’ve been waiting for!

A "hybrid"! Two pumps in one - The K-400!

Now two pumps and two people (or one person with three hands) can be replaced by one person with a K-400. No more waiting for a friend to hold that “hose” and no more extra cost for a secondary “top-off” pump.

The K-400 is the only true two-stage pump available. Extensive field-testing (what river guides affectionately call “trying to destroy”) contributed to the innovative design, durable construction and exceptional performance of the K-400. It will prove to be the best all-purpose pump you can own.

The K-400 is a true two-stage pump. The primary stage delivers a huge volume (approx. 1.3 gals) of air per stroke. When the pressure in the raft increases and pumping starts to become difficult, a simple twist of the handle locks out the high-volume primary stage and locks in the high-pressure “top-off” stage. You won’t miss a stroke!

Just 5 lbs. and 31 inches in length, the K-400 is sleek and light-weight compared to it’s competitors and is constructed of extremely durable UV enhanced ABS plastic to withstand years of use. As with all K-Pump models, the “hose” has been eliminated!

A 600 denier “stow-bag” is included for stowage and protection. Also, like all K-Pump models - the K-400 floats!!!

Item Name:  K-Pump model K400
Shipping weight:  5 lbs.
Price:  $175.00

K-Pump maintenance information may be found here.
 


TIP: Always give about 3-5 short strokes in the valve to blow off any
excess water before inflating.

 

 

 
DINK'S TIPS:
I often use my Bravo 1 Air Pump as a bellows to pump air through the fire box air vent at the bottom of my Kelly Kettle. This trick gets a roaring hot fire going in a hurry. Just put the hose adapter near the hole (not to close though cause you don't want to melt the adapter). Hold it in place with a rock and gently pump air through the air hole and presto - you will have boiling water very fast. This is a great method on rainy days or with wet fuel that won't easily burn.
