When choosing the best air bed for your money, there are some things you will want to look for to separate the quality from the bad products.
Key features that will help you in choosing the best inflatable bed
Long enough for your needs?
Many people will overlook the length of a bed mattress compared to the height of the people who are most likely to be using the bed. If you have a tall family member, members, or friends that may be using the mattress, make sure it’s long enough. The length of air beds varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, so keep this in mind. Perhaps you’ll need to do some measuring of your own, leaving a little room in addition to the height of the user.
Manual or automatic pump
An air mattress holds a lot of air, so much that it is difficult to blow up with the lungs. Keep in mind that some designs don’t come with automatic pumps, but must be purchased separately. Others are battery operated, and others still are plug in operated and inflate at the push of a button. Generally speaking, most shoppers want an automatic plug-in inflatable air mattress for the least amount of hassle.
Portability and storage
For those users who plan on using the mattress on a daily basis, the need for easy portability and storage is obviously less. Some will want to travel with their mattress, so being able to roll or fold up the bed into a small package with handles of some sort is very important. Keep this in mind while choosing.
Stability of the mattress
Not all mattresses are created equal. Some designs won’t have the inner stability and support that others will offer. Support columns and strong material on the sides of the mattress are some things to look for. Also, the gauge of the vinyl that the mattress is made of should be listed in the product description. The bigger the gauge, generally the more support one will have while sleeping on it.
Height of the air bed
Elderly or less mobile people have a lot of trouble getting in and out of bed, and even more trouble getting in and out of an inflatable bed in most cases. Keep in mind that a taller bed will be much easier to get in and out of.
