Need new pump

My husband's birthday is coming up. It's a big one with a "0" in it- so I want to get him a new pump to attach to the car battery. We never launch where there's electricity. Our current one has been broken for years and requires a rock to make the switch work. Please weigh in on your reviews for 12 volt pumps. We have an NRS Otter, but will be getting a new boat next year. Not sure what we're hoping to get a used Maravia, Hyside or Sotar and in the absence of a good deal will probably get another Otter.

Otherwise there are a lot of threads if you wanna use the search feature. I use a cheapo interdynamics pump it has worked great for the past 12 years. Spend your money on a better topoff pump

I didn't end up getting a pump my NRS barrel still pumps my 16' as fast as most people with an electric and a smaller boat.

I had a little red 12v pump (see other pump thread) that plugged into the cig lighter on the vehicle. It gave up this week and I picked up a Coleman pump for $17 at the store. I used it on Saturday to inflate my 10' raft. Slower than the little red pump but a lot quieter, and it has a reverse function which we used to deflate the raft later on. We topped off the raft with the barrel pump, but the Coleman saved a lot of effort.

I've had this one for years with no problem. It's only competition seems to be the LVM which over heats a lot.
