Battery Operated
SereneLife Electric Air Pump

See all pictures

The SereneLife electric air pump stands out for its ergonomic design and rechargeable battery that allows you to inflate your inflatable paddle board or kayak literally anywhere you want.

The SereneLife electric pump provides paddlers with an ergonomically designed product that has a foldable carry handle for convenient transportation.

With an easy to read (and use) LCD display, this electric pump is user friendly and even has LED flash lights on the front so you can use it at night.

The unique selling point of this electric pump is the rechargeable battery that allows you to inflate your paddle board away from your car. It also features a 12V power cord in case you run out of power.

The main drawback of this electric pump is that it can only inflate up to 16 PSI. That said, most paddleboards only need to be inflated to 15 PSI so this should suffice.

Another issue is that it only comes with a nozzle specifically adapted for use with Halkey-Roberts valves, but again this is the valve featured on most inflatable paddle boards.

We recommend you buy the SereneLife electric air pump, but are aware of some issues with the battery not turning on. Most of the time it’s because the “on” button needs to be held for 3 seconds.

Review

We can all agree that pumping up an iSUP is the least enjoyable part of paddle boarding. Luckily electric pumps are on the rise. The NIXY Ventus pump is one among a crowded field, but it avails itself nicely by comparison.

What sticks out first and foremost about the Ventus is its usefulness for multiple types of inflatable vessels and its ability to pump them up consecutively.

The NIXY Ventus SUP electric pump comes with 7 nozzle adapters. These adaptors mean that the Ventus can pump up any type of inflatable from iSUPs, inflatable kayaks, rafts and even beds.

The Ventus also has a built-in cooling system, NIXY’s proprietary tech that prevents overheating when blowing up consecutive paddle boards. That is matched with a smart LCD controller that both allows for a custom PSI to be set and an auto shut off when the target is reached.

It inflates in two stages, quickly blowing up in the initial stage before entering the second stage where pressure becomes more demanding of both the cooling system and electricity itself.

According to NIXY, the Ventus will be able to inflate up to 10 paddle boards in a row. If it overheats, the Ventus will automatically turn off and continue to use the cooling system to cool down as rapidly as possible.

We found that the hose gets quite hot, so be mindful that it doesn’t kink–even though it has non-kinking design. The compressor noise, with the cooling at work, becomes increasingly louder with consecutive inflatables, but it inflated 6 paddle boards with only a little bit of a lag on the last two.

It took around 9 minutes to inflate the G4 Nixy Newport, a 10’6 long SUP with 300 liters of volume. On the last paddle board, also a Newport it took closer to 10 minutes.

The NIXY Ventus also comes with a deflate setting that allows you to remove all the air from your inflatable before packing it away. By removing all the air you are able to pack the paddle board to be more compact allowing you more room in the backpack or storage bag for additional accessories.

The NIXY Ventus is very lightweight, weighing only 4lbs, and comes with a practical carry bag. The carry bag has a comfortable handle as well as an over-the-shoulder strap. If you pack up your NIXY board properly, you can easily fit the pump into your NIXY iSUP bag.

The NIXY Ventus requires a 12V source and comes with a 10 foot 12V cigarette lighter plug-in, as well as 12V battery alligator clips. Therefore, as long as you have a car with you, you can use your NIXY Ventus electric pump.

You can also opt to purchase the add-on of a battery pack, which you’ll obviously need if you don’t have a car, or wish to pump up your board on the beach or lake by the water.

Price/ Quality Ratio

The Ventus electric pump comes at a good price. Given the fact it can consecutively inflate at least 10 paddle boards and has a range of inflation up to 20 PSI, this pump is well worth the investment.

It is at a similar price point to other affordable options like the iRocker 12V electric pump, and its performance is comparable. Lightweight, portable and effective, the NIXY Ventus is one of the best electric pumps currently available on the market.

Do we recommend it?

Yes, we definitely recommend the NIXY Ventus electric pump as one of the most efficient electric pumps on the market.

Given the convenience and reliability that this electric air pump affords you, the NIXY Ventus is a fantastic accessory for your paddle board bag. It will not only allow you to quickly and easily inflate your paddle board but also efficiently deflate it. We recommend this electric pump for anybody who takes their car to get to their favorite SUP spot.
