    Interesting device for SI or BU pads

    Definitely a luxury item for most but if delivering easy or clean, dry air with a small, lightweight unit is of interest to you; https://www.camp-tek.com/buy/index.html

    I haven't bought one so I have no review but the sight has a short video. Looks like it works for both blow-up & self inflating mats. If it had a reverse mode I'd be all over this.
    The older I get the better I used to be. Superhero status is near.

    awesome. I just asked them if it would work with my
    Exped AirMat 7.5 Pump DLX With built in pump and pillow as I can never get the hang of the hand pump.

    After I posted the request, I read the testimonials and it looks as if the answer is "yes."

    Oh, dear...another gizmo

    BEST TO START READING FROM THE BOTTOM:



    From Customer Service:

    No, that is one of the older Exped pads that still has the normal inflator valve. They changed it when they came out with the built in pumps. I wish they would go back, it would be helpful.


    From: Sandy Kramer [mailto:sandykayak@yahoo.com]
    To: Customer Service

    Is this one not the same intake as mine? (this is from your testimonials section)

    <<"On my last trip I took the Exped 7.5. The inflator nozzle easily stretched to fit the Exped's oversized high-flow valve, and the mattress was bulging before I had a chance to clear my altitude-fogged brain and figure out what next to remove from my backpack. I'll certainly be taking my Microburst on all my summer trips to save weight, space and time, and to keep the inside of my air mattress clean and dry." -Mitchell L, CA>>

    From: Customer Service <customerservice@camp-tek.com>
    To: 'SANDRA KRAMER' <sandykayak@yahoo.com>

    Unfortunately the newer Exped mattresses use their own unique intake that is not compatible directly with the Microburst. I believe an adapter could
    be made to achieve this, similar to the one I include for Stephenson's
    Warmlite mattress. Unfortunately we do not make such an adapter for Exped
    at this time.

    You are not the first to request this, and we may look into such an adapter
    or work around solution in the future but there is currently not a good way
    that I know to do it.

    Will this work on Exped AirMat 7.5 Pump DLX with built in pump and pillow?
    I have a hard time using the built-in hand pump.

    The instaflator is much cheaper and lighter.

    Does anyone have one of these and can tell me if it does work on the newer Exped pads?
