The Bravo BTP 12 High-Pressure Pump is the perfect solution for quickly inflating your raft, cataraft, IK or SUP board. Hook it up to a 12 volt battery and it puts out up to 15 psi air pressure.
  • Inflate and deflate quickly with this powerful 12 volt pump.
  • It's easy to know exactly what pressure you have with the built-in 0-15 psi gauge.
  • 9 foot long battery cables and 6 foot air hose gives you good reach.
  • Eight valve adapters, including one specifically for the Leafield C7, links up to most common valves.
  • Pump, cables and hose fit in a handy zipper carry case, with shoulder strap.
Never operate Bravo with vehicle motor running - it can damage the pump due to a higher voltage output.

I had pre & post questions about the Bravo pump and the NRS staff was the most helpful I've ever encountered.
The pump works quite well, the only issue I had was because of the design of my valve. It is the HR3 (Halkey-Roberts) with a center pin. The diaphragm spring to let the air in the valve when closed is fairly strong so the pump would bypass stage 1 (high volume low pressure) and go into high pressure mode almost immediately. This would work but would be slower. To avoid this press and turn the center pin so the valve is open and let it fill till the board has pretty much taken shape (probably about a 1 lb of pressure) Release the hose, close the center pin and complete the fill, (this avoids high pressure escaping when finished) the pump will go into high pressure mode.
The other way is to modify your fill adapter with a pin installed at the right depth (drill thru the HR fill adapter and install a pin) so the pin depresses the center pin in the valve when inserted. You will have to measure to get the right depth placement. Glue or epoxy the pin in or bend the pin over at each end so it can't come out.
I don't do reviews but felt this may help others.

I bought this pump as an alternative to hand pumping with a NRS Wonder 6 and a K-100. I'm faster and can get to a higher pressure which is key with an inflatable SUP (Big Earl). The pump is super loud and struggles to get to 15 psi. The accessories are poor quality and won't last like the bag that the Bravo comes in - two zippers have already failed after three uses.

Great for inflating, poor for deflating

By A. Char

from Campbell, CA

Pros

  • Compact

Cons

  • deflation valve does not fit hose

Best Uses

    Comments about Bravo High-Pressure 12 Volt Pump:

    Service from NRS was beyond excellent. The BRAVO pump purchased was never turned on. The fitting for the inflator was a different thread than the deflator thread. Factory flaw. NRS check 3 other boxes and they all had a different thread. The inflator thread is coarse or wider than the delator thread which is fine. Needless to say, pumps seems to be designed well except for the factory flaw and there was no piece to screw on to the female fine thread valve to match the inflation valve. We received another NRS valve which is loud, but works for inflation and deflation.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery was very prompt.

      Again customer service from NRS was top notch.
      Maybe NRS could have one of their manufacturers make an HR3 fill adapter with a pin already installed. :)
      NRS is not the normal company you deal with, they go over and above.
      Thanks again!

            • Inflating Paddleboards

            Comments about Bravo High-Pressure 12 Volt Pump:

            I've used this to inflate our two stand up paddle boards on several trips now. It works very well, fully inflating to 14 PSI in 4 minutes or so. I use a 12-volt lead-acid jump battery we usually carry around to jump start cars, as hooking this pump to our car battery would be difficult. The automatic cut-off on this thing is great. Just dial in the desired pressure, and let it go. It stops automatically. Why work up a sweat on shore? Save the calories for on the water!

            A hidden gem is its ability to deflate. The engineers that designed this thing made sure the intake side was also threaded, so you can also use this device to remove all the air from your board, thus enabling you to pack it up nice and tight just like the factory does.

            The only downside was it did not come with a valve to fit my Boardworks Badfish. No worries, as I was able to hack a solution using the original inflator tube that came with the Badfish.

              I just got this pump and can't figure out how to make it fit Halkey Roberts valves. The adapter that fits has to be held in the valve in order to fill the tubes, it doesn't seem like I should have to stand there holding the pump in place, any suggestions would be appreciated.

                We're not aware of anything Bravo makes that will do this for you. The best suggestion we have for you is to take the Bravo to a hardware/electrical shop and purchase a converter for the pump that will plug into power source you want to use.

                A:

                Kari, the Bravo has two modes that they call "turbine" (higher volume / lower pressure, up to ~ 2 psi) and "piston" (lower volume / higher pressure). They list the volumes for these modes as: Turbine, 450 liters/minute (15.9 cubic feet per minute) and Piston, 160 l/min (5.7 cfm). They don't break it down for specific pressures.

                I can’t tell you the answer to that question. I have a Badfish stand-up paddle board; the large main chamber requires a lot of air and the recommended psi is 14. It takes about 4-5 minutes for this device to it up. It works well with some jury-rigging of the connections. Overall I’m satisfied and it is a good quality device.

              • VERIFIED BUYER

                A:

                I believe the specification says the maximum draw is 20 Amps. When I built an NiMh battery pack for this device, I assumed the maximum would occur at maximum load which a bit beyond 12psi. Thus, I would assume 20 Amps at 12volts, or 240 Watts. If it helps, the pump rarely needs to run at this maximum load for more than two minutes when inflating most Stand Up Paddleboards.
