With inflatable items you want to make sure that the amount of air you pump in to it is perfect. Any inflatable item can become damaged pretty easily and if the item is one that you need to be damage free at all times, then it is probably a good idea to fill it properly without managing to over pump or under pump the item. One such item that needs precision pumping is the inflatable kayak. If you are on an inflatable kayak then you will want to make sure that there is not too much pressure on the seams otherwise the kayak might burst. You will also want to make sure that the seams have enough support and are filled enough otherwise there is a very high chance that the kayak will not stay afloat. In either situation, without a proper pump, you will end up drowning or putting yourself in great danger.
To make sure you are safe you should have a good quality kayak pump on you to ensure that the right amount of air is in the kayak and that a lot of unnecessary effort is not needed to be made when using the pump. So if you have an electrical pump that can help fill up the kayak to a great enough amount, then you should still have a small hand pump or a foot pump to make sure the last few pumps necessary to fill up the kayak enough are there but the kayak is not so full that it might burst upon impact with something. There are a lot of really good hand and foot pumps that you can get that will make the job easy. You can check them out online by checking a few reviews so that you know which one is good.
