I just got this pump but I got the cigarette light adapter and not the alligator clips....so 2 questions.
1. Could I cut off the cigarette lighter adapter and put on alligator clips? The pump is set up for 12v so i think thats ok, but I'm not sure if there is any difference in the amps between pulling directly off the battery vs. the lighter.
2. The pump leaks air out of the side. I think I saw someone else with this pump and they had a piece of duct tape over it. It doesn't look broken it looks like it was designed this way...maybe for cooling. But it pumps faster when you cover the crack where the air leaks out....Anyone have any experience with this?
