The Air Pump Adapter simplifies the pumping up of your lamp by replacing the manual pump with the adapter. The pump stopper together with its piston just has to be unscrewed and replaced by the air pump adapter. You can then connect a classic air pump or compressor to the adapter and build up the pressure rapidly and comfortably. The use of an air pump adapter also extends the longevity of the mantle as it will avoid tremors caused by a manual pumping. The air pump adapter is suitable for all Petromax models.
