Getting my new i11s next week and together with my current i9s.
I need a valve adapter for my Coleman rechargable electric pump and this pump comes Without a hose. Also the original adapter directly attached to the pump but the original valve adapter won't hold onto the valve of the i11s and i9s and I have to hold my Coleman electric pump to the Hobie inflatable until all inflated. I want our fellow members give me the link or advise me where can i buy the valve adapter(also better buy together with the hose can fit my Coleman rechargable electric pump). If you have a Coleman electric pump then you will know what I am talking about. If I can buy this adapter then save me lots of time to pump two Hobies for my little girl and myself.

Thanks I'm advance for your help!
Austin

"New Short" Halkey Roberts adapter is what you need for the i11s, at least on my 2016 model.

I have the Sevylor 12V high pressure pump: https://www.amazon.com/Sevylor-Volt-Wat ... B00VWA6O2U

and I believe I purchased the HR adapter from NRS: http://www.nrs.com/product/1470.1/new-s ... ll-adapter

The hose that comes with the Sevylor is flimsy, I take care never to fold it and so far it has lasted a season. Will probably look for a sturdier hose connection for this year. Definitely beats hand pumping the i11s, and esp if you have more than 1 to fill!

That turbine kind of pump can only fill about 2psi max, and you need 3 to 5. An amazon review of Coleman rechargeable sez:

R. Willison March 1, 2008 wrote:
This is a very nice pump. however, be aware that this pump (and all others like it) can not create enough pressure to pump an inflatable kayak up to it's full needed pressure. It does get a lot of air in the kayak quickly, but you will have to finish the kayak off with a foot pump or a bicycle type inflator. This is a high volume low pressure pump.

You probably have a boston adaptor connected to a random sized screw-lock port on the pump. I have 2 electric and about 8 manual pumps and they do not have standardized port diameters at the hose fitting end. So be careful both the pump end of any adapter and the halkey end. There are several types of halkeys and I have had to fashion home made gaskets sometimes.

After all that, it may be best to just hold your pump against the valve as you do now, All a turbine can do is prefill a bit, and either a hand pump or piston one (like sevylor) has to carry on above around 2 psi. If you want a psi gauge, there is a pump thread where I identify one that is adaptable to 2 halkey sizes. I think I have to use the long version for what is supposed to be a short Hobie valve, which gives you an idea of the pitfalls.
