Whether it's a pool float or an air mattress, an electric air pump makes quick work of blowing up inflatables. Electric air pumps can be either outlet powered or rechargeable. While outlet powered models tend to be a bit more powerful, rechargeable air pumps offer superior portability. When choosing an outlet powered electric air pump, it's worth looking for a longer power cord of around 6 feet or longer for extended reach. Rechargeable models generally come with either an AC or a DC charging cable, but there are a handful that come with both. Regardless of which type you prefer, it's a good idea to opt for a pump that comes with a few different valve adapters.
