And now my pump not work correctly, i thought the problem is the battery but i had bought another one and pump no works correctly.

to put just in the first phase with the air without the compressor pump pressure off without just having the kite

Only gets some air to the kite and the compressor work lasts two or three seconds nothing else.

sombebody helps me to know where is the problem?

I think it must be a common problem for all compressors, someone knows something

Should I change any component?

Very useful; especially for someone with a back injury. I found that they don't last so long.

Mine lasted 2 years. I have to admit that I ride very often and use very often big kites.

My friend one's lasted also +- 2 years. + I know another guy who had one which also failed after a couple of years.

Still I will buy another one. I get them at 150$ in Ontario; no one sells them here in Quebec.

What broke on mine was the compressor.

Yes of course. This afternoon i tried to pump a kite with BTS conected to my battery car and only get first fase and only managed to fill air compressor not working then is not a battery problem :angryfire:

Then as I can know what is wrong with the BTS?

It may be a silly cheap easy to repair myself? maybe a common problem ...

I paid € 130 for the BTS, as I pay $ 89 for a piece that maybe it's that which is broken?


I have a BTS and that i don`t know solution for work it out, looking for a cheap and effective solution. I dont like spend € 60 to repair this.

Mine is 6 years old and runs like the very first day (and I use it almost every day). Once I changed the battery (which is normal), but that's it...
I bought a new one last year from a Dutch dealer in case the thing stuffs up. The new one is now almost one year in it's original package and never been used. I bought it for Euro175.00 here:

Maybe they can help you with the repair. My friend who bought it there told me they have a big store.

$12 hand held Coleman Electric pump inflates my kite enough to where I only have 15 pumps before it's tight. Works perfect.
