start to answer these questions and weight, size, recharge time,
design layout all start to become critical then your are looking
at buying an expensive balloon pump. If you are creative, you
can make your own for $100.00 or less but will have some heat,
battery, carrying, and noise problems.
make your own system by using a truck horn pump, pipe tubing,
a rechargeable battery, and a home made carrying case. You will
have to work out a trigger switch for turning the balloon pump
on and off, when inflating the balloon.
This will require assembling, testing, modifying, and redesigning,
but can be done. For most professional balloon
entertainers, we realize that just a couple of shows/hours
will pay for the equipment off so it's easier just to purchase
an electric balloon pump then make it.
