- 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-A 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.
While small, this pump has plenty of power to run my sponge filter. The previous pump I had, though advertised as super quiet, still created to much noise in my bedroom. This pump is indeed silent. I highly recommend it!
Works exactly as intended. Great price, good solid function. I would buy another.
So this past summer, my town was hit with a mild tornado. My property was spared (thankfully), but I couldn't say the same for my town's power! We were going to be without power for 5 days!!!! Thanks to Aquarium Coop's YouTube videos, I was prepared! I had one of these tucked away in a drawer and simply attached it to a power bank (thankfully I have a few so I could charge them at the local coffee shop that somehow had power) and my tank had aeration the whole time. It's quiet and doesn't guzzle energy. It truly saved my fish! I'm ordering several as my tank collection expands!
I love this pump so much! The only noise from my tank is from the small bubbles.
