    FLEXTAILGEAR Tiny Pump X – 3-in-1 Battery-Powered Mini Air Pump

    Whenever you’re looking to fill up an inflatable air mattress, air bed, your car’s tires, or even some floating pool accessories, you’ll most likely be using either a mechanical hand pump (meaning a manually powered one), an electric pump, or ultimately, an air compressor. However, all of these have a few issues. Manually-powered hand pumps are simply energy draining whenever what you’re looking to inflate takes a ton of time, while electrical air pumps and electric air compressors are just bulky, thus occupying too much space when you’re looking to bring one with you, as well as quite heavy when you need to carry them around. Nevertheless, there’s one handy gadget out there that fixes all of those issues, meaning that not only does it do the inflation job for you so that you don’t have to waste your precious energy, but it’s also small and lightweight enough to bring with you, making it the perfect pump to have around while you’re on-the-go. Meet the FLEXTAILGEAR Tiny Pump X.

    The FLEXTAILGEAR Tiny Pump X is an ultra-small and ultra-lightweight 3-in-1 battery-powered air pump that can quickly inflate and deflate any inflatables that you can think of, including air mattresses, air beds, pool floats, and more, while also doubling as a Camping Lantern for all of your outdoors adventures.


    While the company (FLEXTAILGEAR) had already released a really compact battery-powered air pump model (the FLEXTAILGEAR Max Pump 2), this newer model – meaning the FLEXTAILGEAR Tiny Pump X – is even smaller than its predecessor, which helps it break the limits of portability, making it the perfect portable and battery-powered air pump to have around for any outdoors activity, including camping trips, outdoors exploration, and anything else in between.

    Now, let’s take a more detailed look at the FLEXTAILGEAR Tiny Pump X and check everything that this portable and battery-powered air pump has to offer.


    Starting with the pump’s actual size, the Tiny Pump X is, as mentioned before, an ultra-compact air pump, measuring just 1.69 inches wide (diameter) by 2.08 inches tall (43 x 43 x 43 mm). Furthermore, this air pump is also extremely lightweight (even lighter than the company’s Max Pump 2 model), as this smaller model weights just a measly 2.8 oz.


    So far, this is the smallest and lightest portable air pump available on the market, even when compared to ANY other model (including all of the company’s other pump models too), making it a great choice to go with for any inflation and/or deflation tasks.

    The pump is actually so small that you can easily grab it between two (or three) fingers. Moreover, thanks to the pump’s ultra-compact design, you can easily carry it inside anything you can think of, including a bag, backpack pocket, camping pants pockets, jacket pocket, your car’s glove compartment, etc.


    Not only that, but thanks to the pump’s ultra-lightweight, you’re able to travel lighter, which, specifically for camping trips, ultimately allows you to focus on enjoying your fun and exciting outdoors adventure, which wouldn’t be possible if you were carrying a bulky manual (or electric) air pump. The same goes for any of your future vacations at the beach or by the pool-side, where you’ll probably be needing to fill an air mattress, air bed, or even inflatable pool accessories. Without a doubt, the Tiny Pump X is a powerhouse of an air pump.

    This compact air pump is made of an ultra-durable and high-quality ABS plastic material, which actually makes the pump quite sturdy during its transportation.

    Lastly, the FLEXTAILGEAR Tiny Pump X also features an anti-splashing design that allows the unit to avoid almost any damage caused by splashing water (not submersible), which ultimately gives you some extra piece of mind when taking it with you outdoors on a rainy day or even while having it by the pool-side to inflate some pool toys while your children are playing in the water.


    Regarding the Tiny Pump X’s actual inflation and deflation specs, this compact battery-powered air pump can offer its users an inflation pressure of around 3.5KPA (kilopascal – atmospheric pressure unit) – meaning 3.500PA (Pascals) of static pressure – and around 180L of air flow p/ minute.

    Furthermore, and as mentioned earlier, this portable air pump also doubles as a Camping Lantern. When using it as your personal and dedicated lantern for your camping adventures, the unit can produce up to 4500K of white light.


    Using the pump to fill up any inflatable items that need to be inflated is also quite easy, and that’s because the pump features both one Safety Net Inflation Port at the side (close to the top) and one Safety Net Deflation port (perfectly centered right at the top of the unit).

    Close to the bottom of the unit, there’s also a USB-C Charging port that can be used to recharge the unit’s battery whenever its running low on charge or completely depleted.

    Additionally, there’s also a Lampshade contour at the bottom of the unit, which is exactly what allows the air pump to also be used as your dedicated Camping Light.

    Now, onto using the actual pump. Literally all you have to do to get it running and working is to quickly touch its Power On/Off Push Switch (which is located at the bottom of the device) with just a single tap to wake up the device.

    Since the pump works both as an air pump and as a vacuum pump, you can use it to fill up most inflatable accessories and also to quick deflate most inflatable items, and that ultimately lets you save some time on packing your camping / vacations gear.

    Lastly, to turn ON the air pump’s Camping Light Mode function you just need press and hold that same Push Switch button for another 3 seconds. Doing the same twice more allows you to go through all of the pump’s three (x3) different lighting modes, which are 50 lumens, 200 lumens, and 400 lumens.

    After you’re done, to turn off the pump all you have to do is click its Power On/Off Switch for a total of three (x3) times, for around 1.5 seconds, and the pump will instantly turn itself OFF.


    Since the FLEXTAILGEAR Tiny Pump X also comes together with a total of five (x5) included nozzle accessories, it offers you a wide compatibility with tons of inflatable products.

    Other than the pump’s two built-in inflation and deflation nozzles (its Self-Contained Safety Net Inflation Port and Safety Net Deflation Port), the pump’s included five nozzle accessories consist of a 15.8 mm Small-Caliber Air Nozzle (mainly used for inflatable accessories with smaller valves), a 20 mm Large-Caliber Air Nozzle (mainly used to fill up inflatable air beds / mattresses), a 6 mm Sharp Air Nozzle (used mainly to inflate Swimming Rings and other Inflatable Toys), a 25.6 mm Rubber Air Nozzle (which can be mainly used to fill most Outdoor Air Mattresses), and a 25.5 mm Vacuum Nozzle that can be used with the pump’s built-in Safety Net Deflation Port to deflate Vacuum Storage Bags, which you can ultimately bring with you to save you some extra space while you’re traveling.

    Other than the pump’s included 25.5 mm Vacuum Nozzle, all other four (x4) nozzle accessories are meant to be used with its Self-Contained Safety Net Inflation Port.

    Thanks to all of these attachments, the Tiny Pump X features a wide range of uses, and that allows this compact air pump to easily meet any of your inflation needs, making it suitable for outdoor air mattress, car air beds, swimming rings, water floating rows, vacuum storage bags and several other inflatable products.


    As mentioned at the beginning of the article, this is a battery-powered air pump. That being said, the Tiny Pump X comes equipped with a built-in 1300mAh Lithium-Ion battery that ultimately offers the pump around 15 to 20 minutes of continuous use, which basically let you fill just a bit more than 10 outdoor air mattress, or to compress dozens of storages bags in one single charge.

    Using the pump for its Camping Mode and nothing else allows you to run it for up to 10 hours (with its 40 lumens setting), or 2.5 hours (with its 160 lumens setting), or ultimately, 1 hour only (with its ultra-bright 400 lumens setting).

    As stated earlier, the pump’s USB-C Charging Port can be easily found right at the bottom of the unit (very close to its base). The pump’s USB-C Charging Port features a Power Input value of 5.0V (0.6 A).

    However, it’s still important to note that the Tiny Pump X does not support dual-head Type-C Cable Charging, so keep that in mind when looking to recharge the pump’s internal battery.

    Lastly, next to the pump’s USB-C Charging Port there’s also a LED Charging Indicator, which basically informs users with the color Red when the pump is between 0~99% charge and a bright Green color as soon as the pump’s battery reaches 100% charge.


    The FLEXTAILGEAR Tiny Pump X is an ultra-small and ultra-lightweight 3-in-1 battery-powered air pump that can quickly inflate and deflate any inflatables that you can think of, including air mattresses, air beds, pool floats, and more, while also doubling as a Camping Lantern for all of your outdoors adventures.


    The Tiny Pump X is currently available in three (x3) different color models: White, Blue, and Gray (these only change the pump’s top-side color).

    If you’re interested in buying it, each unit is currently discounted from its normal price of $49, now going for just $28.99 each (saves you $20.01). You can order yours online, directly from the FLEXTAILGEAR’s official shopping page, which you can access by clicking here.
