I have a two year old BST12 and it looks like the main pump is not functioning, just the smaller volume pump. Any advice here to get repaired?

Hey guys i changed my inflator battery for the ones I use in R/C models made from lithium.
Batteies are called LIPO, are very very easy to find and are lightweight and compact.
They are also much cheaper and they charge in 20 minutes.
You also need a specific charger

These are 2.2 amh and 4.5amh. How many kites can you pump with this? I'm still using lead acid gel batteries but even my smallest one is 7.5amh. We can pump our 5 kite quiver without it slowing down and then some. Maybe it's over kill?

Hi mate,

You will need that 7.5AH for your 5 kites since they require to be pumped up to at least 11PSI or they will flapping around in the air.

Funny.... Actually we've found that 55kpa is the right pressure which translates to just under 8psi. Pretty much the same as our old kites.

Yes.
If you have the older non working battery, just remove the conector from it and use in the new battery.

Thanks for this info hmatter! Good to know. I have been procrastinating getting a new lead battery for my older Bravo...the lighter, cheaper, more powerful battery you suggested looks like the way to go. Time to order this setup.
