There are many reasons our family needs an air pump. We have two different ones and every time I need one for something I get frustrated. One of them takes “D” cell batteries which are costly and not something I keep on hand. I typically have to make a special trip to the store and shell out some cash when I need to use this pump. Our other one plugs into the wall. It doesn’t need batteries which is nice but also not very helpful when we are camping and need to pump up an inflatable bed or an inflatable for the beach. Tropo was the perfect solution.
This small, lightweight pump is very portable. It’s small enough to fit in the palm of my hand and comes with all the attachments I might need for various uses. It also comes with a drawstring carrying bag to keep everything together. It runs on 4 dry cell batteries in AA size. I almost always have these on hand since this size battery is commonly used in all sorts of household items.
Tropo is dual purpose because it can be used to inflate or deflate depending on where you attach your nozzle. This picture shows both . The one on the side blows air out while the one on the top draws air in. Just attach the nozzle by snapping it on the one you need to use. The one-click push switch button makes Tropo easy to operate and prevents the possibility of an accidental button press in your carry-on bag.
Trop is smaller than a soda can, weighs about the same as 2 eggs and is super easy to use. This is now our go-to pump for ALL our needs whether at home, at the beach, or on camping trips. It can also be used with vacuum storage bags to compress blankets, clothes or linens. It takes just 10 seconds to compress a bag and reduce 60% of storage space. This works wonders for travel or off-season storage.
Another suggested use is for charcoal grilling. You can use Tropo to get your coals ready! Tropo comes in several pastel colors including the grey one shown here. You can purchase one or find out more about Tropo at https://tropo.micronovelty.com/
