I just got a crazy idea that I want to get challenged. (Would it work? Has anybody tried?)
For those light wind days, when inflation is tricky...
It's not easy to find a battery leaf blower but it's super easy to find a handheld battery vacuum cleaner.
The front sucks air and pushes it through the dust collecting bag, and finally the air escapes out of the back.
Therefore my idea is to turn it on and put the backpart inside the valve to inflate the kite.
1) Will the airflow be enough?
The cheap ones don't mention the airflow
Looking at bosch, the average priced have 1.3 m3/min

and the expensive pros 15 L/sec

Looks enough to me for those but the cheaper ones will probably not work
I mainly kite in places that have small pebbles but I believe that unless you place it to suck directly sand, it will be ok. (Just empty the bag afterwards)
Potentially an extra filter paper wrapped around the inlet
I wanna try but I do not have a battery vacuum cleaner and my foil kite is at my vacation house . I'm thinking to buy a dual use!
