    Q:

    will this work directly with the Achilles "military" style valve or do i need to cobble on some sort of adapter?
    Asked on 7/31/2014 by gruntling from the summit

      A:

      The Mini won't work with military valves because it doesn't have an internal check valve. As you know, the military valve is either closed or wide open. The K-100 and K-200 are available with check valve options and the two-stage K-Pumps - 20 HP, 40, 220 HP, and 400 all have check valves. All these pumps should fit the military valve, and if not the Leafield/Military Adapter, Item # 38524.01 is an inexpensive addition.

    Q:

    Will this work on a H3 Military valve (Zoik VertEgo Bodyboard)? If, so with or with out adapters? If adapters are needed which one?

      A:

      yep is perfect on the bodyboard, doesn't need an adpator on the H3 valve.
      i keep the k pump mini rolled up in the middle of my zoik bodyboard bag in
      a sleeping bag stuffsack.. when the right pressure is reached you generally
      can't push down on the pump anymore without it popping off, so works fine
      up to about 10-12 psi?
      cheers,

      A:

      If you're getting the Zoik boards (I have two), they send you adapters that
      will work.

      A:

      John, I think what ZOIK is calling the H3 Military Valve is actually the Halkey-Roberts New Short, Item # 1470. The adapter for it is Item # 1470.1 and it will make inflation much easier. They recommend 10 psi for that board; the Mini can do it with a bit of grunt toward the end.

    Q:

    Could you use it to top off a big raft?

      A:

      As a river guide, I'll say you most definitely can top off a raft. I've
      used it as a top off pump and to completely reinflate a chamber we had to
      deflate because the guide (not me for the record) got pinned in a bad spot.
      The k-pump mini is definitely worth having in your kit!

      I use it on a 13 foot raft. I guess you could use it on anything if you
      have the time. With a big raft on a week long trip where you top off every
      morning, i would want a bigger pump.

      I use the K-Pump Mini - 100S to top off my single person IK, and it takes a little while to get it full once it hits the cold water.  Topping off a larger boat would work, but could take a long time.  I'd recommend one of the larger ones for a bigger boat.

      You probably could at a pinch just take a while pumping. Gives plenty or pressure.
      I use on for pumping up inflatable body boards and carry it with me as its about the size of 2 coke cans . Gets good pressure up to about 10 psi.
      To carry to top up a raft would be possible just get ready to pump a lot

      Yes, Toni, although I would recommend the K-100 or K-200 as a better choice. I use a K-200 on my 15' raft.

      Absolutely, I bought this as a top off pump for my 12' cataraft. It has worked well, still not light, but then again not "lightweight" either and it is pretty compact compared to its brethren. If you are trying to pump a raft up - lotsa work. Top off just fine.

      It takes a little while but it works and doesn't take up much space. It's
      all I take on day trips. I use it to top off my 14 footer when the floor
      gets soft. On overnighters I bring a bigger pump in case I was to get a
      puncture.

      I have the K-Pump Mini.  Only inflates on the push.  BUT, it's a great way to top off an inflatable or even fully pump up a small inflatable.  Although pricy, it is well worth the money.  Very compact to carry on extended trips.  I've used cheap two way pumps and this is a better way to go....at least for me.

      This pump is not a 2 way, and it won't fall apart the way a 2 way with way
      2 many pieces will. It is a simple, sturdy, and solid pump that will out
      live whatever you are pumping up. Great for topping off, it is compact and
      the carrying case stows well. You will not be disappointed with this
      purchase.

    Low volume, but effective

    • Compact

    Cons

    • Low Volume

    Best Uses

    • When Space Is Limited
    • When Weight Is Limited

    Comments about K-Pump Mini:

    As expected, this is a pretty low volume pump so it takes a while to use. However, I bought it because it is small and lightweight, therefore ideal when space and/or weight are a limitation, such as shipping it to where I will be boating, putting it on a bush plane, etc. It is also fine for a top-off pump if you have an electric or high volume pump to use initially. I knew it's limitations when I bought it, and it works great for my applications.

        Comments about K-Pump Mini:

        Bought this last year for use on small inflatable boats with boston valves, similar to IKs.
        This is the only pump we take for up to 3 boats. We keep it in a strong sealable bag inside the bag it comes in because it spends a lot of time under water. Each boat is filled with about 350 strokes. Every pump to the very last top off is almost not even felt. Easy, easy, easy to pump, about 2 minutes per boat, pumping very quickly. Not at all tired when done.
        Considering a larger IK now and expecting/hoping to use this pump alone.

        I had read so much about high volume pumps, top-off pumps, and two-stage pumps that I wasn't sure this little guy would be the only pump I would need. Well, it is. Compact size with a lot of volume to fill a 350#-rated float tube surprisingly quickly and firmly. I'm very happy with this purchase.

        Only took 15 minutes to inflate a Bandit

          Comments about K-Pump Mini:

          The pump easily inflated a 9.5' Bandit IK from totally deflated to full in less than 15 minutes. I recommend buying the C7 Leafield Valve Adapter (#14821, less than $5) so you can thread the pump into the valve and not have to continually press the pump into the valve. The pump comes with a fitting that is the right size for the adapter. In the attached photo, you can see how a couple of zip ties and a stainless hose clamp can be used to insure the adapter doesn't get separated from the pump while you are on the river.
