Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0852296A2] A portable, battery powered inflator with removable batteries (16,16') which are switch (18) activated. The inflator has an air intake (4) and output (6) for delivering air into a variety of air bladders with different sized valves. The batteries (16,16') are typical dry cells and not rechargeable to save cost. The inflator has a cover (15) that allows quick removable and replacement of the batteries. An adapter assembly including a transition structure and adapters (38,38') are provided to allow inflation of a variety of bladders having different sized valves. The attaching of the transition structure engages the switch (18) completing an electrical circuit that activates the motor (8) to deliver air automatically. <IMAGE>
