There's only one winner there ;)

 

 

 

Don't know how good it is but these sort of things often have compressors built in and are useful for jump starting etc:

This is how I understand it from trial and error (ie. trying to inflate an airbed with a tire compressor...):

For an airbed - this is a high volume low pressure requirement, so we use a hair dryer on cold and have used a hand dryer in a campground bathroom once (but that is a long story), with the final bit being lung powered.

For a ball or tire - this is a low volume high pressure option. We just use a bike pump - which seems to be ok most of the time.

Haven't seen battery powered versions of these, but have seen cigarette lighter socket powered versions of both. Cool xmas present for a camping geek might be a wiring kit to add a spare socket to the car off the main fuse box (have one I am itching to try out when Imget a chance).

I'd like a recommendation on a rechargeable pump for blowing up air mattresses, and also sports gear like balls. Would need the standard connections for balls and mattresses. 


Does anyone have one they recommend, hopefully not too expensive. 


 



Airhawk!

Only seen the ad never used it

Downside no apparent fitting for balls, and not a variable pressure option. Pluses, super cheap.

We use something similar to this for air mattresses, inflatable water toys etc, but the one we have is 12VDC only:

 

https://www.amazon.com/Portable-Electric-Inflator-Deflator-Inflated/dp/B0747QGVBW/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1513193748&sr=8-2&keywords=water+toy+inflator

 

Hopeless for inflating balls - not enough pressure. But cheap hand pumps work great for balls. Anything that will pump up a ball or a car tyre will probably be high pressure low volume so not good for large volume low pressure mattresses and water toys.

STOP if he has never been camping before why spend $150, can you not borrow a tent from a friend before you open your wallet? If he hates camping you have just saved yourself some $$

 

 

 

Good on you for wanting to give it a go with him instead to just buying a "Camping simulator' on the iPad. We live in a beautiful country we should be enjoying it more!

I haven't used one either so can't speak to how good or reliable they are, but they look quite compact compared to some others.
