 >  > Frabill Aqua-Life Portable Aerator

The Frabill Aqua-Life Portable Aerator runs so quietly you will forget that you are aerating your bait. This portable aerator features a whisper quit motor that runs efficiently at a low volume. Frabill also utilized a special micro-bubble oxygen diffuser that produces clouds of tiny bubbles. The smaller more numerous bubbles more readily mix as they collide and dispense throughout the entire water column. The smaller bubbles are less damaging to fragile baitfish in smaller bait containers. The Frabill Aqua-Life Aerator effectively aerates up to six gallons of water.

The Frabill Aqua-Life Portable Aerator is powered by either 2 D-Cell batteries (not included) or a 12 volt battery system.

Features of the Frabill Aqua-Life Portable Aerator include:

  • Water tight case
  • 30" non-kink air hose
  • Micro-bubble diffuser
  • 12 volt power outlet adapter

About Me:

Bought this aerator after a LOT of on-line research and emails to Frabill about noise concerns. Have read good and bad reviews on all aerators. Seems if you get a good one, be it Frabill, or MM, or someone else, it's pretty much the luck of the draw. I believe 99% are "pretty good" with satisfied customers. That said, someone is going to be the 1 out of the 100 that gets the noisy one. I can live with the noise level of mine right now. If it gets any louder, that would be a problem. I attached mine to an Igloo 25 qt cooler. I was going to buy Frabill's cooler conversion kit but realized once my cooler was modified for that one, I was "stuck" with having to use that model and that model only. Bad deal if they are problematic. Going this route, I can easily use anybody's aerator. So far so good. Plenty of bubbles and keeps my bait fish (bluegill) full of life. The included 12 volt adapter is excellent for running in the car or in the boat. I had a 110 volt adapter (not included) should I need to run it overnight in the garage or house. Note that it has to be 3 volt, "tip positive." I'll give it 5 stars .....at least for now. Only time will tell how well it will hold up.

Pros: Great product/Great seller, Cigarette lighter adaptor

Cons: Absolutely none, so far

Best Uses: none

About Me:
Our son refers to me as the Ol' Geezer. As such, I have gone through a lot of bait aerators, generally more that one a year. The previous aerators went through 2 D batteries in a couple of hours and the pumps would not hold up.They were not built to last. That was bad for the bait, bad for the environment and bad on the pocketbook. But I thought that's the way it should be. That was until I bought a Frabill Aqua-Life Aerator 3 years ago.I still use the cheap "dollar store" batteries, but the Frabill Aqua-Life sips their power and has worked for several outings while keeping the bait lively. It is relatively quiet, AND it is still working! The only thing I have replaced was the puck (bubbler). I have never used the 12 volt option for two reasons: battery life is excellent/and I misplaced the adapter because the battery life was so good. I recently bought a second one for use in Florida when the shrimp were not doing well.even with a water change. On the first trip to the bait shop, I actually turned the pump off, thinking the clerk had not turned it on. It was that quit. At the end of the day (5 hours on the water), I was cleaning the left over shrimp out of the bucket and the shrimp were actually jumping out-that's lively! I generally buy products based on reviews and I detest being misled. In turn, I write reviews giving an honest opinion and update good or bad. For this review, 3 years service is a pretty good indicator of product quality. And FishUSA has an excellent price, is quick to deliver and has earned my trust.

Pros: Great product/Great seller

Cons: Absolutely none

About Me:
Excellent product. Works well in below freezing temps. while ice fishing. Keeps 24 or more dozen minnows alive in a 10 gallon cooler with on problem. The unit is extremely quite while running. Installed a 12 volt accessory plug in the back of the pickup box for trips to and from the lake, saves on the cost of buying batteries. Also looking to order the 110 V plug-in for extended fishing trips while staying in motels when there is no option of leaving your boat or bait in the lake. Shipping was fast and the product came well packed. Good price.

Pros: easy of use, Cigarette lighter adaptor, 110 V plug in, Great buy

Cons:
