So, you’ve decided to go futuristic and get yourself a massive inflatable family tent, so what’s next? You’ll need to get your shelter up and running, and to do that you’ll need a super charged pump like this one from Zempire.
The Zempire Aero Pump is a high volume air pump that works perfectly with the entire Zempire inflatable tent range. To use just plug it into your car, attach it to your tent and watch it do all the work for you while you kick back.
There are two setting to adjust the pressure output, and the Aero Pump has a deflate outlet to help you pack up your tent when it’s time to head back to the big smoke.
First things first... Snowys sales and service are the best around also the Zempire tent that I have (Aerodrome 2) I cannot recommend highly enough it's well thought out design, high quality finish and easy to pitch. You really get what you pay for. One of the best features is the Hurricane (hand pump) pump supplied with the tent inflates the air beams super quickly so the tent rises out of the ground in no time, very easy. I thought that a Zempire Aero pump would produce a similar result particularly for the price tag... Sadly it does not, it's far to slow. There is not enough volume of air produced to inflate the beams quickly, it's a problem because the air beams are really only solid structure right at the end and you spend way to long juggling the tent trying to get it to inflate. It's probably great for inflating a blow up mattres but that's it. Don't waste your cash stick with the hand pump. Would like a refund.
Thanks for the write-up about us - we love to read to comments like that! It's just too bad that you don't feel the same way about your new pump. The good news is, this sounds like an easy fix - just need to send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll sort out a return - piece of cake! Laine
Too slow to inflate air mattress let alone the highly priced Zempire Aerodome 2 Pro tent we bought Oct 2017. Manual pump far quicker as is a $15 pump of shelf from Bunnings. Very disappointed. Shall seek refund.
I'm sorry to hear that your new Aero pump has fallen short of what you were expecting. We appreciate your review - it'll be helpful for anyone else looking for a new pump. Laine
Tested to the gymnastic club in the air equipment
I am assuming this pump needs to be plugged into a 12 volt power supply. How long is the power cord? It is not always possible to park car next to awning. How long does it take to inflate compared to standard Zempire hand pump? Is it twice as fast similar or slower? I have a standard Aerobase takes me about 2 mins with handpump but its an energetic 2 mins.
The Zempire Aero Pump comes with a cord length of 5m.
It's hard to offer a comparison due to the variables, however, the Zempire Aero Pump can be adjusted to an output between 50-300L per min, you can adjust the pressure gauge between 0-12 PSI and what most people love about it is it takes out the 'physical' demands of the hand pump.
Is there an automatic cut-off so you don't over-inflate?
I've just had a look into your query, and according to Zempire's website - the Aero Pump uses high volume/low pressure then automatically switches to low volume/high pressure until the desired air pressure is reached, and then switches itself off so there shouldn't be an issue with over inflation.
I have found the hand pump a bit of a challenge.
Great question! I've done a bit of research and can't see why you couldn't use the Zempire Aero Pump. The Aria uses the same Boston Valve as the Zempire tents so getting the hose to fit should be no worries. Just ensure you double check the Aria Poles recommended air pressure and don't exceed that with the pump.
Just wondering if I can use this pump to inflate my Turbo Air tent?
How old is your Black Wolf Turbo Air Tent? If it's a recent purchase, they should come with Boston Valves (same as Zempire Tents). If so, the Zempire Aero Pump will do the trick!
Hi - I have both aerodrome II and aerobase shelter - how long would this pump take to inflate both of them? Is it much faster than manually pumping (mentions it has high volume low pressure pump before switching to high pressure for final top up) or is it more just for convenience? Many thanks
This really depends on how fast you hand pump I guess. If you're having trouble with the hand pump or have a bad back, the aero pump will definitely be faster but I'm not sure for exact timing sorry. We'd be more than happy to contact the supplier in NZ on Monday if you'd like more specific details, just let us know.
Hi guys! What is the power cord length? (The air hose seems to be only about 1m long...)
The air hose on this unit is actually 1.5metres in length and includes 3 nozzles operating on 12V. It can blow between 50 to 300L/Min which will get that tent or gazebo shelter up in no time flat! Cheers!
