Q: I would like to order this machine . But is this good for helium quality ballons like does this machine make my balloons float in the air ?

submitted by Jamie F - 6 years ago
  • A: This is an air pump. It fills the balloons with air not helium, so they won't float.

    submitted byDNiven - 5 years ago
  • A: Yes. It works fine with "helium quality balloons." Does it make them float? Not unless you place them above it in the airstream to make them float. A gadget this size that's capable of nuclear fission for dispensing helium would be quite an accomplishment. Sadly, not in this century.

Q: How many balloons can I fill 12 inch balloons

submitted by Ann - 5 years ago
  • A: Unlimited. This is an electric pump that fills the balloons with air. There is no tank, so as long as you have electricity you can fill as many balloons as you want. It is a great time saver.

    submitted byDNiven - 5 years ago

Q: How noisy/loud is this machine?

submitted by JujuJewels - 5 years ago
  • A: It is about as noisy as a hand held vacuum.

    submitted byDNiven - 5 years ago

Q: Is this balloon tank a helium tank?

submitted by Samad Q - 6 years ago
  • A: It is not a tank, it is an air pump. It fills the balloon with air not helium.

    submitted byDNiven - 5 years ago

Q: Will this work with mylar/ orbz balloons?

submitted by mowanalee - 6 years ago
  • A: The instruction sheet says not to, but I don't see any reason why not. I suppose because mylar self-sealing valves can be flimsy.

    submitted byfred - 6 years ago

Q: Does this machine just blow them up or will thy also help them to stay up floating

submitted by Linda - 6 years ago
  • A: This blows up latex balloons with air, not helium. Saved me a TON of time blowing up balloons for my son's birthday party last week. Love it!

    submitted byMattnRae - 6 years ago

Q: Is this a helium tank or just blows balloons with regular air?

submitted by Question - 6 years ago
  • A: This only inflates with air, not helium. That being said, it saved me a TON of time not having to blow up balloons by mouth for my son's birthday party!

This pump didn’t even last long enough for me to finish a balloon garland. Had to go purchase a different one in a rush for a party I was hosting. Completely forgot to return right after the party and by the time I remembered, it was too late. Waste of money.

Practical but you need to know the tricks to use it effectively. Tilt the whole thing sideways a bit so it does work properly. It gets tired and pretty warm after 50th balloon or so (LOL) if you’re making an arch or something. Good overall and useful.

This machine gets hot super fast. I blew up a third balloon when I noticed it was hot. Considering the price you would think you would be able to blow up more than two balloons.

Got it out of the box and it didn’t even work. Tried multiple outlets that worked for other electronics fine so I know it was the pump. Returning

Definitely will fill balloons but sometimes it doesn't and I'm doing everything right. Suctions on base are great to keep it in place but not much better than the battery powered one.

Disappointed. Unable to pump double stuffed, long, or larger tough balloons. Before you think I'm crazy expecting that the $15 pumps from A mazon can do it all!

This thing is a miracle worker. Bought this to help build balloon arches and it has made the job 100% easier. I no longer have to blow up the balloons myself and it doesn’t take as long to finish the arches. It is a little loud, but it’s totally worth it! It comes with a variety of attachments as well for different balloon sizes ☺️

Does the job , i had to stop using it to let it cool down between uses because it heats up pretty quick and pops balloons with the hot air . But its easy to use and fast.
