LVM here too, cheaper options but it is fast and rebuild-able if any part of it breaks you can repair it which I like versus the cheap stuff. I’ve seen cheaper versions of same thing out there if you search though. Downside is they are freakin loud! Literally only takes a couple minutes to do a 14’ boat though.

As far as extension cord, just go to BatteriesPlus or whatever you have and get a battery. 7 to 12 amp 12v batteries are light and small and rechargeable. Portable power and you can go several inflate/deflate cycles before needing to recharge.

Rule iD20 Marine Rule Inflator/Deflator is what I bought. Same inflator as LVM but a lot lower cost. I think they are both made by Jabsco a subsidiary of ITT Corporation. When I did my research about a year ago, the stats and specs on both pumps were identical.

If you are going to rig up an extension cord to power your inflator, use at least #12 gauge cord as the voltage drop really affects high fast the inflator runs.
