Hi

We have a normal electric pump that comes off mains electricity. Instead of buying a new pump can we get an adaptor that runs off the car?

Thanks

You'd need to buy an inverter unit to convert the 12V to 240V - basic 300 Watt one would be about 20-25 from Maplin Electronics or similar. Alternatively, you can buy a 12V pump for just a few quid.

I got a 12v Pump from Aldi's for 5 last week elsewhere only a few pounds more. If you need more length Maplins have an offer on 3m extension for 12v devices at 5 right now... get online or check local stores availability.
