The AirBank Puffer Pro's Acoustic Feedback:
Similar to the majority of portable inflation devices, the AirBank Puffer Pro produces a certain degree of sound, which is significantly more noticeable during its second stage of inflation. This is quite a common characteristic in devices of its kind so far. However, we are always eager to hear about and welcome any suggestions about comparable inflation devices at a similar price range with lesser sound emission. We greatly appreciate any feedback you may provide.
"When searching for a portable air pump, it's natural to seek something that is compact, lightweight, easy to carry, and user-friendly."
"As an added bonus, you have the flexibility to power it up in two ways: via the rechargeable battery or a 12V DC power outlet, such as a vehicle's cigarette lighter."
There are 5 bars on the Airbank Puffer Pro to gauge how much battery has been used. The pump charges to a maximum of 20 PSI, showing 0.1 PSI increments.
We pumped up the 14’ Bluefin Explorer and a 12’ 6” Red Paddle Company Explorer:
The 14’ Bluefin took 12.5 minutes to inflate to 17 PSI, leaving 2 bars of battery life left. There was 7.2 PSI left before the battery stopped.
The 12’ 6” Red Paddle Co. took 12 minutes to inflate to 17 PSI, also leaving 2 bars of battery life left.
In both cases, there is not enough battery left to inflate 2 boards of this size without charging the Airbank Puffer.
We pumped up the The 12’ 6” Red Paddle Co. board again to 15 psi - that took 9.5 minutes to inflate with 4 bars remaining. If you do the math, that means you could pump 2 boards this size at 15 psi. Or inflate two 10’ boards at 12 - 15 psi with one charge.

Pump up your board in the shade to keep the pump as cool as possible. If you do not have access to shade over the hot sun you may not be able to start pumping a second board as it will be too hot to start up again. At that point a 30 minute cool down is in order before the next use. Regardless of how many bars remain, you will need to cool it down again before it will operate.
Note: after inflation is complete it is necessary to wait 30 minutes to cool down the motor in order to charge the battery again. To charge from 0 to full charge it takes 2 1/2 hours to get back to 5 bars.
Free replacement or repair up to 1 year from purchase date.
The decibels at the second stage of pumping increases after the first stage. The first stage fills the board up to the start of pressure building, hence more sound. Likely you will be using the pump outdoors - In this case the sound is not an issue.
There are 2 washers to customize fit (red and orange). Each of the two washers were used during this review; the Bluefin required the orange washer for a tight fit and the Red Paddle Co required the red washer for a tight fit. Both worked well with no air leakage.
