If you\u2019re looking to put together a small party, one that needs balloon decorations lacking helium, the Signstek Electric Portable Air Pump Inflator makes a good case to be the best balloon pump. Part of its success is automatically inflating balloons in a matter of seconds, a sign of its good inflation rate.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Signstek Electric Portable Air Pump Inflator\r\nForget about using hand pumps and go electric. With this air pump, inflating a balloon with air takes only a few seconds compared to the minute you\u2019d spend with your own mouth.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nYes, it\u2019s true: the Signstek Electric Portable Air Pump Inflator is really good at inflating balloons. Its 700L\/min air volume helps, forcing air in at a rate that can inflate a single balloon in under 5 seconds, depending on the size of the balloon you want. It also helps that it\u2019s automatic. What it fails to do is blow helium or have some kind of helium extension. At the same time, it didn\u2019t make or break our decision. If you\u2019re building balloon arches, you can have one built in under a half hour, easily. Can you imagine doing that with a Tota 2 Way Action Balloon Pump For Balloons? No thanks!\r\nDesign\r\nOverall the Signstek Electric Portable Air Pump Inflator is pretty durable. Its outer casing is obviously plastic but a tough plastic nonetheless. It has one inflation port, which is a real shame as it reduces the Signstek\u2019s performance. The Yofit Portable Electric Inflator Decorations, for example, has two. Still, the power switch for both controls two operation modes automatic and semi-automatic, to avoid blowing balloon sizes too large. For a smaller one semi automatic please choose the left-hand switch for semi automatic mode. Press the switch the other way to initiate automatic blowing.\r\nValue\r\nTaking into consideration the Signstek Electric Portable Household Air Blower Electric Balloon AIr Pump Inflator can do and its overall durable design, this electric air pump has good value\u2014especially if you\u2019re putting together balloon decorations. You even get free shipping. With that said, there are better electric balloon pumps available for the same price\u2014sometimes cheaper. Electric air pumps like the IDAODAN Portable Dual Nozzle Balloon Air Pump are slightly better in performance, cheaper, and blow up two balloons at a time.\r\nSignstek Electric Portable Air Pump Inflator Wrap Up\r\nThe Signstek Electric Portable Air Pump Inflator is an affordable workhorse\u2014especially with automatic and semi automatic press buttons. If its superior performance gets too much, please choose semi automatic for better control. We would\u2019ve liked to use helium, but its single nozzle was a real bummer. It can be a real game-changer depending on the situation.
