Just bought a T-Max compressor which has a maximum amperage draw of 45 Amps (fixes to battery terminals and have to keep the car running). I think there's a smaller model which has a draw of 30 Amps which might work okay with the battery but not the one we have?
Our problem is inflating the pod in the garden, where we can't park the car nearby. The Ring RAC 750 230v pump wpyld have been ideal for that but has been discontinued. Track and foot pump inflation nearly killed us so now looking at alternatives.

We decided to go cordless last year and bought a
“DEWALT DCB118 FlexVolt XR Multi-Voltage Fast Charger 10.8-54 Volt Li-Ion”. Fabulous, but pricey, device and now means we have a non-EHU option. Plus, it has high and a low pressure options and I was therefore able to help a neighbour with their paddling pool over the weekend.
We bought a Ryobi ONE+ inflator with biggest possible battery pack and charger last year and on second use it struggled, shook and died, so that's put me off rechargeables.
Sounds like you're having better luck with yours, though 👍.

Are those karabiners clipped to the tube sleeves? Yeah....I wouldn't be doing that 😬
You could possibly use cable ties around the tubes, maybe left a bit loose so easily removable?

10mm double-sided velcro strips around the tubes as attachment points would work. That's what I did with I was camping under canvas in my pyramid tents.
I came up with the very same suggestion to Muckerette only last night. (I know... I need to improve my pillow-talk technique! )
And the bonus she she already has some (double-sided) in her "Sewing Studio" (OK, it used to be the kid's bedroom, but we've gone up in the world since becoming Karsten owners!)
As confident as I am that clipping direct to the tube sleeves would be ok, I guess it would just be silly to risk it long term (and those carabiners can be sharp!), when such a simple solution would take away such risk.
I strongly suspect we'll be going down the narrow width double sided velcro route.
