Battery Powered Air Pump?/Humidity Questions
    #2385439 - 02/28/04 01:04 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hey all, I'm looking to make a Poor Mans Pod, but Im wondering if theres any battery powered air pumps, Im not too intent on running power cords from the pod to an outlet.
Thanks,
P2K1 :mushroom2:

store bought pumps will not work they run on 60hz which a battery will not produce, and even with a a converter a battery will not produce enough amps to run a store bought unit. do some google searches. theres got to be one out there for your needs.

All you would have to do is put your poor mans pod in a corner. Cut a hole just as big as the end of the plug and connect it to a small extension cord running underneath your carpet along side your base boards. It will be perfectly stealth if that is your intention. Otherwise you might have to spend a ridiculous amount of money to get a battery powered air pump if you can even find one.

Penalties against drug use should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against the possession of marijuana and mushrooms in private for personal use.

I googled it, and a lot of em came up, most under $20. I have some questions about the PMP. Im assuming the pump is just about letting the mushies breathe, so how can I be sure that the humidity is stable and ideally set? Do I need to go get a hygrometer from radioshack? And then if I do, how do I regulate the humidity, e.g. if its too low, what do I do? Im sure these are all n00bish questions but Ive read a lot of FAQs and I feel like Im going in circles.
Thanks,
P2K1

The pump is for more then just breathing. It is also what keeps the humidity up. The air bubbles the water through the geolite which makes it evaporate, thus causeing the humidity. The air pump is a key component of the pmp.
