Any reason I can’t use a power inverter on the boat? Want to use my inflator for the reef but it only has a DC PLUG, not a cig lighter plug

You’ll be fine.

But I’d order a 12v inflator for later

I have so many inflators, just one that’s a cig plug and it’s a bit small for this application I think

well, i got the mat today. heavy as hell, almost too heavy really. And the pump sucks, unless I'm using it wrong. I emailed Mission, we'll see. I had to use a plug in inflator which worked quickly but you're supposed to top it off at least with their pump, which sucks. And the gauge for PSI on the pump does nothing. Wonder if i got a lemon or if this is a POS...i will say it's very sturdy blown up on my lawn though

We ended up with a pump for a paddle board. Works much better!

I might just return it. I can’t say it’s for boat use due to the non-ease of inflating, deflating and folding it back up correctly while on the water. And it is very heavy. It is very sturdy though

Sad to hear that. I thought about trying one but we don't live on a lake so we would have to haul it everywhere.

We have the same one and my wife actually just bought another I suppose to zip them together. They seem reasonably durable (only one season under the belt) and fold up small enough to stow ok and are not egregiously heavy. I don't know if it will last forever but like I said so far so good.
