Great for car camping, home use

Reviewed by Rollie car camper from Kansas City on Friday, December 25, 2015
I bought this for car camping at music festivals. Love it. The pump inflates quickly and efficiently and has plenty of power if you need to top off after a few nights out (temperature changes can make any air mattress stretch and feel slightly deflated). I fully recommend it.

You should know that you need to charge the pump in advance. I advise charging it once, running it down for about 10 minutes, and recharging. Instructions seem to indicate you need to recharge every month -- but I think that only applies if you need it ready at a moment's notice.

The pump is great -- compact and powerful. Catch is that the pump won't help you fill up your buddy's air mattress. And if your pump goes dead, there's nothing else that will pump up yours. It's all proprietary stuff. But I'm convinced that with a minimal of planning, this is my very best solution for car camping.

This is too heavy for backpacking. And, as will all air matresses, there's always danger of a puncture and a leak. (It does give the usual patch kit.)
