I came across an electric pump which works off your cars cigarette lighter for 30euro.

perfect for me, cos we all drive and park on the beach where we fly.

It has an atomatic cut off at a specific pressure that you can set yourself on a digital gauge.

It all sounds to good to be true...
has anyone tried anything like this before?????

@ these temperatures, nothing's better than a double action pump workout at the 16m fronttube.

i used a battery pump for a while, but simplicity demandet to take the old muscle pump - no hassle with loading, wires and stuff - just pupmp it up and go :wink:

Just build this and you'll never complain again. This one finally wore out, so I built a new one using the newer style pump with fat center post. Once you build this pump, you'll be spoiled and never want to use a single pump again.

Pumping up your kite is one of the perfect streching moves for your arms. Don't be lazy and use a regular double pump for your kite.

I got a pump from a discount supermarket here in Germany - you can run it off the 12V car adapter and it has a rechargable battery. Great to fill the monster kites half way (my X2 20 for example). Works a charm and was only about 20 - 25 Euros.
