- Convenient and portable
- Quiet When running
- Low power consumption
This small, almost silent air pump is great for nano tanks or for adding an air stone to an existing larger tank. It runs via USB power, which means you can use it with a battery pack backup for cell phones during a power outage. The power cord is 12 feet long and ends in a USB Type-C connector.
In our testing, the pump uses 1/3 of a watt of power under load. The air output from this pump is lower than standard air pumps, which allows it to run almost silently with very little electricity use. It is best suited to run small sponge filters or an air stone.
With the carabiner clip, you can hang this air pump from above your aquarium — eliminating the need for a check valve. You can also hang it in a car for a long trip to an event or fish store. Overall, these little pumps are extremely versatile.
***Can not be submerged, can't get wet. This air pump only operates outside of an aquarium.***
Produces 0.6 LPM for air
Comes with the USB plug in adapter.
Air pump is very quiet with plenty of air output.
Bought three to run sponge filters for my tanks, two of which are in bedrooms, where quietness is a virtue. They don’t disappoint. Run the medium size sponge filters (with air stones for smaller, quieter bubbles) just fine. I loosely wrapped the pumps in a soft rag and put them in little cable management boxes with the power brick, and I can’t hear them over the bubble noise.
So far so great.
Interestingly, I tried plugging them into multi-USB-C power bricks I already had, they didn’t work, but they did work with the included USB C brick, and when plugged into the USB C port on my power strip. 🤷🏼♂️
At this point, would happily buy again.
Like the pump it is easy to use.
Quiet and convenient that it hangs on the wall. Love it
I have at least 6 of these pumps all work great, they use almost no electricity at all. They saved my large gold fish last year when the power was out for 3 days and I connected them to my car batteries.
