    Hi, I've been looking at cordless inflator for recharging ex. vessels. Does anyone use one and can recommend or advise to stay away from any particular ones? I'm keen to get something better than the foot pump I use at the min, but don't wanna chuck £100 at something that's useless. Thanks

    Get the regin one from plumbs or city. Much better then a foot pump and much easier on your hands.

    Thanks, had seen that one but couldn't find any reviews. What's the battery life like, does battery last if unused for a while?

    I mean this one mate. If you buy electronic, it’s just another thing to go wrong.

    Thanks, that looks much better than trying to rig foot pump on with 300mm hose. Will give one a try.

    Another one for the Regin styrup pump. Used one for years. And there is no substitute. I won a rothenberger cordless mini compresser pump from my local merchants in the Xmas raffle used it twice and put back in it's box mate. Gone back to my trusty Regin pump.

    This 240 volt none storage air compressor from Lidl does the job well, but noisy inside a house.

    I bought Regin last year as the foot pump was sometimes not possible. Now I am using regularly digital hand held charging the vessel and it made my life so easy. So it is worth it go get it.

    Foot pump with screw end does me. Those battery pump aren't worth it really. Takes longer to use.

    I got one called an Air Hawk Pro from Argos for £50 as I didn't want to shell out too much for something that I wasn't 100% on.

    Pretty happy with it though to be fair, easier for sure.
