Making our pump as easy to use as it is fast was an important requirement in designing it. All you have to do is determine your desired PSI (see our recommendations here), connect the pump to a power source and press start.

Understanding Each Part of Your Pump
Like all things mechanical, the better you know your equipment, the better off you’ll be. By knowing the parts of your pump and how they work, you can keep your pump in great working condition for many years.
The electric SUP pump comes with just about everything you need to inflate your board except a power source. If you don’t have a cigarette lighter in your car, you should invest in a 12V battery.
Here’s some more detail about the working parts of the electric SUP pump:
114″ (9’5″) cigarette lighter power cord:
This little piece of equipment is how your car becomes a pumping power source. Insert the end into your auto’s cigarette lighter. Simple.
12V battery alligator clips:
You will use the integrated alligator clips to connect to the positive and negative terminals of a 12V battery if a car lighter is unavailable. This is a great alternative to using a car cigarette lighter and we highly recommend the small investment in a mobile 12V battery.
42″ (3.5′) inflation hose:
You’ll find that the hose is built to fit all IROCKER and BLACKFIN boards. You’ll simply connect one end of the hose to your board and the other end of the hose to your electric pump. Voila!
Expert Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions
If there’s something we didn’t cover in this guide, these frequently asked questions from our fan community will help. These cover everything from recommended PSI to super SUP techniques.
What is iROCKER’s recommended PSI?
What’s good for your mate might not be your perfect, so PSI is best determined with a little trial and error. In general, however, the ideal minimum PSI is around 14 and the maximum is about 23.
Note: Your pump will start to register a pressure reading at around 7 PSI so don’t panic if you don’t see a reading ‘til then.
Can I keep my board inflated while not in use?
Of course you can. Depending on your storage situation and perhaps how frequently you get out for a paddle, keeping your board inflated might be the most convenient solution.
Tip: Avoid keeping an inflated board in direct sunlight because the heat of the sun can cause over-expansion.
Does my 12V electric SUP pump come with a warranty?
Of course it does! A one-year manufacturer’s warranty covers everything beyond the regular wear and tear of your electric pump.
Bottomline: You’re Going to Love the 12V Electric SUP Pump
An electric pump is a great gift for every SUP lover, including yourself!
Hand pumps certainly get the job done and if budget is a key factor, then by all means, stick with your hand pump. But if you’re at the point where you want to have more time on your paddle board than on the ground, you’re going to want an electric pump.
