I come from a generation that had to sit around for several minutes trying to inflate kiddie pools and rafts. That is why I am so glad we have a Greatland electric pump. We bought an air mattress to use when the grandkids or other overnight guests come to visit. We needed an electric pump if we didn't want to kill ourselves trying to inflate the mattress the hard way.
Along with using this pump for our portable air mattress bed, this pump may be used to inflate swimming rafts, inner tubes, and other inflatable items, using the three different nozzles. Check the directions to be sure.
This pump is so easy to use. It is lightweight and fits nicely into my hand. It connects easily to the air mattress in seconds. Best of all, we can fill up our mattress in less than a minute. The kids love watching how quickly the flat mattress transforms.
This particular pump is electric. It does not have any cigarette lighter connections like other pumps do, but for us, this is not a problem. For home use it's fine and when we want to use it for trips to the pool or beach, we simply inflate some of the items before we leave.
This unit is noisy. It sounds like a vacuum cleaner. This is not a problem unless someone is sleeping. It is not running for very long, so we have never had a problem with the noise.
If this unit ever breaks down, we will run out very quickly to purchase another. It was a great price and we have gotten so much use out of it already.
