Best Electric Air Pumps TechnoBuffalo 2020

If you've ever been caught at the side of the road because your tire was flat or had to blow up a queen size mattress because family showed up unannounced (who does that?!), then you'll know how helpful an air pump can be. Having one can be the difference between getting home or paying a fortune for roadside assistance. Fortunately, we have found some great pumps for you to choose from.

Best for inflatables: AGPtEK Portable Quick-Fill Air Pump

Staff Pick

Blowing up an inflatable bed manual is exhausting. We've all done it; we've all hated it. Having a good air pump can be, if not a life-saver, a breath saver. The portable air pump from AGPtEK is perfect for at home or the campsite as it has both a mains plug and 12v adapter for your car. The large intake nozzle guarantees a speedy fill, and it can even deflate things as quickly as it inflates.

A proper tool: Ryobi P737 Portable Cordless Power Inflator

Now I might be a little bias as nearly all of my tools are Ryobi, but I am a big fan of their cordless solution. Because the batteries are interchangeable on every Ryobi tool, you can simply buy the pump without spending a fortune on a battery as well. This pump is specifically designed to inflate your tires and has a pressure gauge on the back to tell you precisely what you need.

Ultra portable: CYCPLUS Mini Portable Air Pump

If you are a cyclist, you'll know that weight is a premium when you are on the road. Having a compact, rechargeable electric pump could mean the difference between riding home and walking. This small USB pump is powerful enough to pump a car tire, and it can act as a charger for your phone, as well as having a powerful LED torch to help you at night. It's an excellent tool in a tiny package.

Power pump: Kensun Portable Air Compressor Pump

The Kensun Portable air pump is a tire inflating powerhouse. Within its plastic body lies two powerful motors that can quickly inflate a tire of any sized car or SUV and even has an adapter that will let you inflate footballs of all shapes and sizes. The Kensum also has a simple switch to allow you to run it off of your car 12v system or your house power.

Party time: Idaodan Electric Balloon Blower Pump

Now, this might seem a little niche, but it's a great idea nonetheless. With two nozzles specifically designed to blow up balloons, this pump can make short work of all your balloon needs. You don't have any balloon needs, you say? I think you do; you just don't know it. Having something like this ready for kid's parties and anniversaries will save you hours. Trust me.

Blow it all up!

Having a pump handy when you need it is one of the most stress-relieving things you can have. I once broke down, on a mountain pass with my wife and child in the car, and when I took out the spare wheel, I found it was flat. Because I had my Ryobi cordless pump with me, I was able to inflate the spare and limp home safely. Without it, we would have been sat at the side of a busy freeway waiting for a tow truck to arrive.

If you are looking for a pump to inflate beds and pools and the like, then the AGPtEK Portable Quick-Fill Air Pump is the best choice for you. The easy inflate and deflate, as well as the fast speed it does both at make it the obvious choice for the job.
