David Harrington, Kent. 28/08/2014                     LUGPUMP REVIEW

 I have been using this pump after I bought 1 a couple of months ago now to replace my old worn out pump and thought it about time to review it.               When the pump arrived the first thing I was impressed with was how well it had been packaged and the fact it came 98% assembled. After taking it out off the package I noticed how well it had been constructed, using quality components, and how good the washer set was.                               The first time I used it, it performed excellently with only a slight adjustment of the plunging washer required. I have used the pump at least twice a week on all different types of sand and mud, and it hasn't let me down yet, with only minimal cleaning required. the washer set is still looking like new.         So if you are looking for a pump. I highly recommend you buy this pump as you can trust it won't let you down and you won't be disappointed.

Re: Lug Pump / Bait Pump - Stainless Steel 22mm

Recently bought this pump after searching the internet for a decent quality bait pump.
Having previously owned a alvey and a micks tackle (matchman) 22mm bait pump in the past and not being overly impressed with the quality I thought I'd give the sma pump ago.
First impressions when it arrived was very good, excellent quality and built to last. The washer is the best I've seen on a pump which very rarely needs adjusting and I like the fact you can have the tensioning nut sat slightly proud of the pump for easy adjustment.
I've slightly modified mine and added  duplon grips to the handles ;)
I've now been out with it 4 times going flat out for a good couple of hours a time and suffer no fatigue at all, its almost effortless unlike previous pumps I've used....it paid for itself on the first outing!!
Buy with confidence you won't be disappointed.

Hi there just a quick word to say thanks for the quick supply of my Magicshine MJ-808. I had it in two days,  which was great and very much appreciated. The light is super and quiet a lot of my fishing buddies have been asking where or what it is; so hopefully you might get a few more orders to Ireland.
Many thanks.

Lumen Maintenance Projections

Based on internal long-term reliability testing, the manufacturer projects that the LED maintains an average of 70% lumen maintenance after 50,000 hours, provided the LED junction temperature is maintained at or below 135ºC and the LED is operated with a constant current of up to 700 mA.

The manufacturer currently recommends a maximum drive current of 700 mA for the LED in designs seeking the ENERGY STAR* 35,000 hour lifetime rating (= 94.1% luminous flux @ 6000 hours) or 25,000 hour lifetime rating (= 91.8% luminous flux @ 6000 hours).

* These lifetime ratings are based on the current ENERGY STAR Solid State Lighting Luminaires V1.1 (December 12, 2008) and ENERGY STAR Integral LED Lamps V1.0 (December 3, 2009) lumen maintenance criteria.

---------

Moisture Sensitivity
In testing, the manufacturer has found the LED to have unlimited floor life in conditions = 30ºC / 85% relative humidity (RH).

---------

Vision Advisory Claim
Users should be cautioned not to stare at the light of this LED product.
The bright light can damage the eye.

Rechargeable NiCd,NiMH:
Charge content of batteries reduces rapidly; requiring recharge before use!
Rechargeable Hybrid batteries:

Recommendations

Today, the best rechargeable batteries are the new hybrid Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) cells. These hybrid batteries have a lot going for them: they come fully charged (like alkaline batteries), and they can hold their charge over many months (unlike regular Ni-MH rechargeables). Because they can hold their charge for so long, they are suitable for low-drain devices like remote controls and flashlights. But they are also ideal for use in high-drain electronic devices like digital cameras.

Hybrid Batteries.

Sanyo

Eneloop batteries are Ni-MH batteries made by Sanyo in Japan. Sanyo says Eneloops can be recharged up to 1000 times, and they will retain their charged capacity even after 6 or 12 months of storage. (According to Sanyo the specs are: 90% of charged capacity retained after 6 months, and 85% capacity after 12 months at 20 degree Celsius). The AAA-sized (R03) cells are rated at 800 mAh. A pack of four AAA Eneloops costs about £7.35 + Free P&P. The charge time is as follows: 135 minutes.

GP Recyko+

GP Recyko+ batteries keep 90 per cent of their charge during storage. Thus effectively making them as convenient to use as disposable batteries, but with the power and savings of a rechargeable. They will stay 90 per cent charged for six months after charging and can be recharged up to 1,000 times. The AAA-sized (R03) cells are rated at 850mAh. A pack of six AAA GP Recyko+ costs about £5.18 + Free P&P.

SMA Tackle use GP Recyko+ batteries!

Batteries and chargers, for both of the above, available from:
