Dependable Rechargeable Air Pump with Excellent performance
Reviewed in the United States on August 4, 2016
I purchased this Colman Quickpump (Rechargeable) to replace the previous model I had for about 3 years. Now let me first say that the NiCd rechargeable batteries in these and other equipment that uses the have a limited lifespan.
I find the rechargeable version of this pump is most practical for camping since power is not always available.
With that said, this pump has performed up to the standards of the original for all applications that I need.
INCLUDED IN THE BOX:
-Pump (internal non-replaceable battery pack)
- Wall charger with cord.
- 2 different size inflate/deflate adapters.
To inflate just slip on the appropriate size adapter and lock on with a twist. Then turn on. This pump inflates air mattresses, backyard swim pools, and most consumer rafts very quickly and achieves a reasonable level of pressure for proper inflation.
To rapidly deflate, this is really valuable, you insert the appropriately sized adapter into the side air intake port of the pump and turn it on. This rapidly sucks out all the air in the air in the air mattress, backyard swim pool, or consumer raft and makes packing up much easier and faster.
CHARGING / USE BEFORE RECHARGE:
Full Charging of this pump usually takes an overnight charge and this is common with most consumer devices and is due to the lower amp wall socket chargers provided. The PLUS is that the charge vs volume of air that this pump provides is EXCELLENT
Here’s an example of items I filled before recharging the pump battery;
Inflated/deflated Two queen size AND two twin size air mattresses on THREE camping trips
Inflated/deflated one backyard pool (~12’x5’ with three air chambers) at least FOUR times.
Inflated/deflated many pool toys and rafts multiple times
The only thing that I liked about my previous version of this pump was that you could insert the nozzle adapters into the pump for storage. The NEW versions of the pump, there is not built in storage. A nylon bag for storage of the pump, adapter, and adapters would be a nice addition, but neither the previous version or this son includes a storage bag.
- Fast inflation and deflation
- Long operation on single battery charge
- Very portable (rechargeable version)
- No built in storage for nozzles on the pump
