- Rescue Air USB Battery Powered DC Air Pump - Cobalt Aquatics
Up to 72 Hours of Reliable Air Flow During Emergencies or Power Outages
The Rescue Air USB Battery Powered Air Pump is perfect for any emergency. With the onboard battery and included a battery bank, the pump can be powered for up to 72 hours. It can run continuously or with a 10-second on/off cycle in the battery powered mode to make the pump last as long as possible. Power outages will usually last just a couple hours, but you never know when disaster could strike and have an outage for a few days. When your aquarium water goes without flow, O2 levels will start to drop and after a few hours, the lack of oxygen could start to cause serious issues for your fish. By just dropping an airline with a diffusion stone into your display tank creating some surface movement will help promote gas exchange, keeping the oxygen levels from depleting.

Super quiet! By Richard on 7/31/2020Richard would recommend this product to a friendWorks great and I was amazed at how quiet this air pump is. Make sure the pump & battery back up are charged all the way. Excellent product.
Power failure feature DOA By David on 1/2/2020David wouldn't recommend this product to a friendPump is quiet.
If you use a non return valve say goodbye to most of your flow.
I bought this to backup the powerheads on my quarantine tank; to only run in the case of a power failure.
It runs on battery, it runs on AC, but will not switch on if unplugged.
Talked to Cobalt support - they suggested trying to re-seat the battery cable connector; I did. No change.
Purchased 11/23/19 - defective first use 1/2/20.
I have to send the pump to Cobalt at my expense if I want them to replace or repair it.
I should have bought the cheapo battery powered air pump.
Great back-up air pump By Robert on 12/27/2018Robert would recommend this product to a friendI think the best feature of this item is the fact that it will turn on when you loose power. You dont have to be home or awake when it is needed. It lasts a long time on it's internal battery and you can use ANY back-up battery for it. I use my large one for my 90 gallon tank, but the small one this comes with works well for the smaller tanks. definitely highly recommended
Best $40 Ever Spent By Ames on 10/14/2018Ames would recommend this product to a friendI moved from New England to Georgia, and two days after I got here hurricane Michael hit. My LR and corals have been in a Rubbermaid tote for 12 days, and this air pump is keeping it all alive. I charge the battery pack on my cars USB port to recharge the pumps battery. It’s awesome!!
Very Quiet By DHil on 9/26/2018DHil would recommend this product to a friendSuper quiet and holds a charge while not plugged in. Of course you'll have to charge this every now and then if you want to use during an emergency. Just like your battery back up for your tablets, phones, etc. Portable and silent, a win all around. I'll be ordering another to keep on hand as a backup. Definitely beats the B11 noise bombs which I had to run for 8 hrs...what a migraine maker!
Do you need to replace this air stone after a while? And can the air stone be submerged in the tank on a everyday basis?
I would probably suggest replacing every 6 months. It can be submerged 24/7 if you like.
