We always bring our 240v electric pump camping for our air beds.
It has an inflate and deflate option.
Unfortunately it doesn't work with Vacuum bags - I expect it's not powerful enough.

I did read through older posts and noticed others had the same problem. Rather than buying another electric pump only to find it also doesn't work I was wondering if anyone can recommend one that does work with vacuum bags?

Thank you

we used a normal double action hand pump, i would say it got 85% of the air out which was good enough!

We carry a dyson cordless just for cleaning up. One of these would certainly do the vacuum bags!

    "Single 12V high pressure pump
    1 bar, 14.5 psi
    Piston flow rate 160 l/min
    Consumption 20A max
    Automatic stop when selected pressure is reached
    Complete with connectors for dinghies and kites
    Supplied with shoulder bag
    Inflate only*
    1.7m air tube and 3m power cord"

    *I think the OP is looking for a pump to deflate?

We found an electric pump that inflates, deflates and can be used as a vacuum. The Outwell Hurricane Vacuum Pump arrived today and works with our vacuum bags.
Purchased it from here for £17.99 www.addnature.co.uk/outwell-hurricane-air-pump-blue-black-567170.html
The only problem is that it had a 2 pin plug, so I had to purchase a 2 pin to 3 pin adapter. But still cheaper than purchasing from elsewhere.

Hope this helps others...
