Features of the Serenelife SLPUMP50 Rechargeable Battery Electric Pump
The Serenelife SLPUMP50 is one of the most popular battery powered electric paddle board pumps on Amazon. It is sold under several different brands names including Tuomico and Seamax. They are all the same pump so you can look for who has the cheapest price.
Once you have used a battery powered pump and can inflate away from your car you’ll never go back. We use our battery powered pumps far more than any others. The extra convenience is worth the added cost and slightly heavier pump.
We purchased a Serenelife SLPUMP50 to see how it compares to other popular pumps. As always, we will give you all the good and bad of every item we review.
See our review of the Serenelife SLPUMP30 for their 2 stage pump without battery power.
See our review of the Serenelife SLPUMP10 for a smaller, lighter, single stage pump. It costs a little less and takes a few minutes longer to inflate most boards.
The Serenelife SLPUMP50 currently sells on Amazon for $134.52. The pump is available from several sellers under their own brands such as TUOMICO and Seamax. The cheapest version I saw was from DONGYAN for $119. The most expensive version I saw was from Seamax for $149.
The cheap item rule of Amazon applies. If you see something that looks exactly the same from several different sellers on Amazon it’s the same product. Go for the cheapest seller because you are getting the same thing either way.

Serenelife mentions a 1 year warranty in the questions section for this item. A check of the comments and ratings reveals people have not had any luck getting warranty replacements. Assume when you buy this item that it does not have a warranty.
Size and weight
This pump measures 9.9 x 6.9 x 5.2 inches. It weighs around 4.84 lbs. This makes it about average size but a little heavier because of the batteries. The pump is a bit large to fit in most inflatable SUP carry bags. Fortunately, it comes with its own carry bag.
12 volt power
The Serenelife SUP Pump has a 10 foot cord with a standard 12 volt DC plug on it. It will work with almost any car, truck, or SUV with 12 volt outlet.
It does not include a set of alligator clips or any other adapters to work from other power sources.
The SLPUMP50 has a built in 6000 mah 12 volt Li-Ion battery pack that can be used to inflate paddleboards. The pump has a separate charge cord that works off of any regular household 110 volt outlet. It can also be recharged off of the 12 volt power cord. It takes about 5 hours to recharge the pump from completely dead.
Stand up paddle board compatibility
The Serenelife electric pump has a detachable air hose with a set of connectors on one end. A variety of rubber gaskets are included so you can put the correct thickness on any of the air valves.
It will work with almost any paddleboard or other inflatable water toy out there. It has the following valve adapters. H3/HR, C7, Boston, Pinch, and 805. This will cover almost every inflatable paddleboard, kayak, and water sports toys out there.
This pump can inflate up to 16 psi. You can adjust the air pressure in 0.5 psi or bar increments. Some of the marketing images on Amazon show an image of this pump and say 20 psi. They are wrong. When you power up the pump and try to adjust the target pressure, it maxes out at 16 psi.
Inflate and deflate
The pump has inflate and deflate modes. You change by connecting the air hose up to the appropriate outlet.
Inflate 2 boards in a row time
This pump is only designed to inflate 1 to 2 boards at a time. According to the user manual, it should not be run for more than 30 minutes at a time. After 30 minutes of work time, it should be allowed to cool for 30 minutes before using again. You can inflate 2 boards easily within 30 minutes. If you are inflating smaller boards to lower PSI you might be able to inflate 3 before the pump overheats.
Digital Display and Controls
The pump has easy to use controls and a small digital display that are built into the pump top. The display shows the current pressure and battery remaining as both a symbol and percent.
It does not show target pressure while pumping. We strongly prefer pumps that do show this. We prefer pumps that show the current pressure and target pressure while the pump is working. You aren’t left wondering what pressure it was set at when you hit go.
It has 5 buttons for controls. A + and – button for adjusting target pressure. A power button for starting and stopping the pump. A PSI/Bar button to change the units. A light button for turning on and off the LED lights on the front of the pump.
This is an intelligent DC electric pump. It will auto-shutoff when the set pressure is reached. You should not leave the pump unattended while it is running.
There is a built in LED light on the front of the pump. It can be turned on and off with a button on top of the pump. The light also has a strobe mode where they blink if you need to signal someone.
USB Power Bank
There is a set of USB plugs on the pump top. These can be used to power your phone or other USB device. They will consume battery so your battery available to inflate boards reduces if you use it to recharge your phone.
Handle and cord storage compartment
There is a built in carrying handle that folds up on the top of the pump. There is a storage compartment with a lid underneath it for storing the cords. I cannot fit both the 12 volt cord and the 110 volt charging cord in the compartment.
There is no latch or other way to hold the cord compartment shut. It only holds with a slight friction fit. Once you have unrolled the 12 volt cord once the odds are good you’ll never get the storage lid to stay shut again. It’s a nice concept but there needs to be a latch to hold it shut. The Outdoor Master Whale has a similar storage compartment but they built a latch into the lid and it’s big enough for both the 12 volt cord and charging cord.
The SLPUMP50 comes with a nice padded carrying bag. It has a mesh pocket under the lid for holding the air hose and 110 volt charge cord and valve gaskets. This is a feature I wish that every electric paddleboard pump would start including. It’s a nice copy of that bag that the NIXY Ventus pump comes with.
Using the pump
The Serenelife SLPUMP50 is really easy to use. Plug it into your paddleboard. Hold down the power button for a few seconds to turn it on. Set the desired pressure with the +/- buttons. Tap the power button again to start it. It will run and shutoff when the desired pressure is reached. If you want to use 12 volt power then plus in the 12 volt cord into your car/truck/suv or other 12 volt supply. It runs and charges off 12 volt.
We do 2 inflation tests on every paddleboard pump we try. The first is inflating a generic 10’6″ x 32″ All Around board to 14 psi. Next we inflate a 12’6″ x 30″ touring board to 15 psi and 20 psi. This gives a good sample of how long each pump takes to inflate larger or smaller paddleboards. The SLPUMP50 can only go up to 16 psi so we did not time inflation to 20 psi.
It took the SLPUMP50 7 minutes and 37 seconds to inflate a 10’6″ all around board to 14 psi. This was about 45 seconds faster than the SereneLife SLPUMP30.
We also repeated this test using the internal battery. It took the SLPUMP50 7 minutes and 52 seconds. Using internal battery was only slightly slower than a 12 volt power source.
Inflating 12’6″ touring board to 15 psi
It took the SLPUMP50 9 minutes and 7 seconds to inflate the 12’6″ x 30″ board to 15psi.

How many boards can it pump on a charge?
We were able to inflate the 10’6″ all around board to 14 psi a total of 5 times on one charge. On the 6th try it made it to 11.08 psi when the battery finally died. We did run the pump for over 30 minutes without any real break in doing this test. The temperature was 75F. If it’s a hot 95F sunny Florida afternoon it may go into overheat shutdown by the 3rd or 4th board.
This pump is noisy once it goes into its second stage air compressor mode. Every electric paddle board pump we have tried is noisy during this time. I have not tried one yet I would say is better or worse from 1.5 psi to completion while operating in air compressor mode.
SLPUMP50 vs Outdoor Master Whale
The Outdoor Master Whale is the next most similar pump to this. They both have internal batteries. They both can inflate to a maximum of 16 psi. Let’s take a look at how these 2 similar pumps compare.

Tips for using the Serenelife Electric Pump with your inflatable SUP
1 – use the correct gasket on the valve
The pump comes with a few different rubber gaskets you can pump on the H3 valve. It came with the thicker gasket installed. This works for most boards but there are exceptions. Some H3 valves need a thin gasket. Some need the thicker one. Check the gasket thickness that was on the supplied hand pump to see what size to use.
2 – attach the inflation hose to the board first
The air hose is stiff enough it can twist the H3 socket out of the air valve. I find it easiest to insert the fitting into the valve on the board first and attach the hose to the pump second. It’s easy to move the pump and hose to an angle that will hold the valve into the board.
3 – check for air leaks
After the pump goes into its high pressure stage, you should see a steady climb in pressure. If the pressure stops climbing at 2-3psi, there is a good chance you have an air leak somewhere in the air hose or pump fittings. Feel around for air coming out at either end of the hose. Tighten the fittings.
4 – You can deflate boards with the H3 valve in the closed position
If you want to roll up your board tight you need to suck all the air out. The best way to do this is open the valve and let all the air that naturally comes out escape. Close the valve and hook the pump up to the deflate port. Turn it on and let it go. It will suck all the air out. Take the hose off the board and the valve is already closed so no air goes back into the board.
The Serenelife SLPUMP50 is a good electric paddle board pump. It’s not the fastest we have tested but it’s not the slowest either. The built-in battery is a handy feature. You can use this pump away from any 12 volt outlet. The Serenelife SLPUMP50 electric paddle board pump is a good value at $159. We think it’s a good choice for a rechargeable electric paddle board pump.
