Ease of Use and Time Required to Fully Inflate a SUP
A 12V pump is the perfect option for price-conscious paddlers who want to quickly inflate a paddle board. If this sounds like you, we’re sure you want to know everything you can about the product before you make the purchase.
While there are many good electric pumps on the market, none of them quite compare to the ease and affordability of IROCKER’S electric pump.
We’re not bragging. We’ve put a lot of effort into getting the most out of SUP and that includes our time.

When you’re ready to wrap things up and head home, use the pump to deflate your board in under five minutes.
Using your SUP pump is easier than ever. Simply set your desired PSI (the IROCKER team recommends a 15 PSI for your paddle board), connect the pump to a power source and press the start button. Do your stretches or sip a cold one and let the little engine do its thing.
How to Use a 12V Electric SUP Pump
We already broke down the basics on how to use your new electric pump, but there are a few more details to help get you started. Follow this simple step-by-step process to fully inflate your IROCKER or BLACKFIN board in minutes.
Step 1: Connect the pump to your car’s cigarette lighter or a 12V battery.
Step 2: Use the LCD display screen on the pump to set your preferred PSI between 15 and 23, which is our recommendation.
Step 3: Use the inflation handy hose to securely connect the pump to your paddle board.
Step 4: Press the power button, sit back and relax. (This is a good time to enjoy a cool drink or a little pre-SUP snack.)
Step 5: Unclasp the hose and hit the water.
It’s seriously that easy and that fast.
A 12V pump is simple for anyone to use, no matter your SUP skill level. The iROCKER electric SUP pump is a perfect solution to preventing tired muscles before you even reach the water.

Understanding Each Part of Your Pump
Your 12V electric SUP pump comes with almost everything you need to inflate your board. If you don’t have a cigarette lighter in your car, you should spend a couple pounds on a 12V battery.
Other than that, you’re all set to inflate your IROCKER or BLACKFIN board.
Here’s a little more helpful info about the key parts of your iROCKER electric pump:
114″ (9’5″) cigarette lighter power cord:
This key piece of equipment allows you to use your car as the pump’s power source. Insert the available end into a cigarette lighter to allow power to flow through the pump.
12V battery alligator clips:
Use these alligator clips to connect to the positive and negative terminals of a basic 12V battery. This is a great alternative to using a car cigarette lighter.
42″ (3.5′) inflation hose:
This hose is specially built to fit all IROCKER and BLACKFIN boards. Connect one end of the hose to your board and the other to the electric pump.
iROCKER’S Answers to Your SUP FAQs
If there’s something we didn’t cover in this guide, these FAQs are sure to cover it. From desirable PSIs to recommended techniques, we’re here with the answers to your most pressing questions.
What is the recommended PSI for a fully inflated paddle board?
The ideal minimum PSI for an inflatable paddle board is 14 and the maximum is 23. Your pump will start to register a pressure reading at around 7 PSI.
Your IROCKER or BLACKFIN board won’t experience any specific benefits if you inflate the board past 15 PSI.
Can I keep my board inflated while not in use? Of course. Our team often keeps display and demo boards inflated for several months without damage or air loss. Avoid keeping an inflated board in direct sunlight to prevent over-expansion.
Does my 12V electric SUP pump come with a warranty?
Yep! A one-year manufacturer’s warranty covers everything outside regular wear and tear. Additionally, all iROCKER and BLACKFIN boards come with a two-year warranty.
So Many Reasons the 12V Electric SUP Pump is Right for You
