Battery Powered Aquarium Air Pumps

A battery-powered aquarium air pump is handy to have when you need to transport your aquarium or unhook the pump from power for any reason. Much more importantly, a pump that runs on batteries ensures that your aquarium gets oxygen even during power outages. Better pumps offer "uninterrupted power" and include rechargeable batteries that remain plugged in and can automatically switch to battery mode in the event of a power outage. Less expensive models may be just what you need for...MORE moving your aquarium or an occasional brief power loss.
