Why pump by hand if you don't have to? Let the NRS Blast Inflator Pump do the work for you. Its compact size and rugged durability will last for years.
  • This 12-volt pump is capable of inflating to 1.5 psi for a fast and easy inflation. For many inflatable crafts you'll still want to have a hand pump for top off to full pressure and to take along with you on the water. It also deflates making it quick and easy to get your inflatable packed back up.
  • Comes with an adapter to fit a wide variety of valve types.
  • Inlayed rubber insulates from heat and sound while providing a more secure grip.
  • 12 foot power cord allows you to easily inflate your boat near your vehicle.
  • It's easy to deflate with the Blast Pump. There are two ports on the pump - one where the air enters the pump and one where the air blows out. Simply disconnect the nozzle from the outlet side of the pump (it twists on and off) and connect it to the intake side.
  • There is a small hole in the pump nozzle. It's there to prevent back pressure buildup that can cause the pump to overheat.
  • The electrical clamps allow quick and easy connection to your vehicle's battery.
Never operate Blast with vehicle motor running - it can damage the pump due to a higher voltage output.

Do not block the small hole in the pump nozzle. It is there to bleed off back pressure. Blocking it can cause the pump to overheat and burn out the motor.

Using this pump continuously for more than 20 minutes can cause it to overheat. Please allow cool down time between uses.

    Q:

    Will this work on a car battery or does it need a 12v only?

      A:

      It's set up with "alligator" clips that fasten to the terminals of a 12 volt car battery.

      A:

      This will work on most car batteries as most cars today have 12 volt systems. Your car ignition should be in the off position when using this pump.

      A:

      I've only used it on a car battery. The clips are small so it can be difficult to get them to grab. One drawback is because of its small size, it takes a while to inflate a boat, but sure beats inflating by hand. However, you will still need to top it off with a hand pump. I also use the pump to inflate air mattresses.

      It clips right on the truck battery and works great. I do top it off with my hand pump to take it up higher.

    Q:

    Hi there - would this pump work with the NRS Big Earl inflatable stand up paddle board?

      A:

      I looked up what a Big Earl was and found out it is a paddle board. This would definitely do the job on inflating. You may need a hand pump to top it off though. That is what I do in my pontoon boat.

      A:

      i don't know. It certainly won't bring the board to full pressure. you would need to top off with a barrel pump.

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Sherri, the Blast works great with the Leafield C7 valve on the Earl. It will put a lot of the air volume in the board, but you will need another pump to add air to get to the 12-15 psi operating pressure. Another alternative is the Bravo 12-Volt Pump, Item # 80027.01, which can air up to 15 psi.

      A:

      Works on any Leafield or a Halkey-Roberts style valve; so yes it will.

      I use it on a 16 ft. expedition raft with good results. Be prepared to
      possibly top it off with a hand pump.

      A:

      I use it for rafts and still need a top off pump. I don't think it will give you enough PSI for a paddle board. I think you need an air compressor.

      A:

      yes it does but you still need to top it off with a high pressure hand pump like k-pump. In fact I own the Big Earl and the blaster pump.

      Not sure, I know it does not work with summit, Boston or Roberts valves.
      Since it does not come w/adapters, not sure what it's good for. Been
      sitting on the shelf since I bought it.

      A:

      Answer...
      height, as shown in photo is 5 1/4"
      impeller housing diameter is 4 5/8"
      length from tip of nozzle to opposite edge of impeller housing is 6 1/2"
      narrow end of motor housing is 2 1/8"
      if fitting in a case you will need to allow an extra bit of height to leave room so as to not fold and damage the power cord
      hope this helps.

After having 2 LVM pumps break in different ways I decided to try the NRS. This pump doesn't pump up the boat quite as fast as the LVM but the peace of mind is well worth the few extra minutes. I've had this pump for 2 seasons now and it still works like new. The cable is longer so you can pump up the whole boat without having to move it. Also, the NRS pump doesn't get hot or stick on like the LVM. My brother is very happy with his NRS pump too!

This pump is a "so-so" pump. The pump does not compare to a good "made in England" LVM pump. I purchased the LVM pump, now, labled as LVM-NRS , and Made in China. The LVM-NRS stopped working after second time used. Purchase the NRS Blaster in place as the store did not have another LVM. The Blaster has a nice long durable cord. The feel or handling is awkward compared to a LVM. The blaster has an of/off switch. The LVM is a squeeze switch. The blaster does not inflate to the 2PSI as advertised on the box. I routinely got .75 PSI to 1.25 PSI, using a very good guage. At no time did I get evern close to 2 psi. The multi valve adapter is not really a multi valve adapter. You need to have the right fitting to get a good seal in the valve. I would suggest to a friend, consider spending a few more dollars and or trying out a inflator / pump with an adjustable psi setting. The Blaster took much longer to inflate than the good LVM inlfator made in England. Recommended only in a pinch.

      Comments about NRS Blast Inflator Pump:

      the blaster is as promised and will pump a 16 foot raft up in 15 minutes, but wear hearing protection and watch that it doesn't overheat. I'm finding that I prefer the K-40 about half the time as it's quite and about as fast.
