If your like me your house could be of a decent size but you never have a lot of room as all your modern electrical gadgets along with excercise bikes that never get used etc etc.we dont have friends and family staying often as we do not have that much space but i had a eureka moment,what about an inflatable bed?
Well after a fair bit of reasearch on the internet i decided to buy this product from amazon in december 2011,it arrived within 3 days,when i got the box it was quite heavy i purchased it as an option if we had guests staying and also you could just put it back in the bag when they leave,i unpacked and was sligthly daunted at first as i could not see where to inflate it,a quick read of the instruction booklet supplied and discovered the plug for inflating it was inside a handy flap.
i plugged it in and pressed the on switch and it started to inflate using the electric plug in pump that was supplied it was all done within 10 minutes which was brilliant,it all depends on how hard you like your mattress but this was about normal i then tested it out and found it very comfortable as good as any mattress based bed,and obviously plenty large enough for 2 full grown adults.
To deflate was simple reversing what you had done and took not time at all then you just fold it up and
put it away in the bag it comes with with seems very sturdy and well made,on the slight downside once guests had slept on it i had to inflate again for a couple of minutes as it seemed to lose some air overnight the other slight thing is the electric pump is very noisy when inflating so it may be a good idea to inflate earlier on as it may wake any children up at bed time.
To summarise this is a brilliant idea if like me you need something to use infrequently and then put it back in a cupboard untill next time and at around £35 its worth every penny in my opinion.
I purchased this air bed when I first left home it was all a bit of a rush I went to the estate agent on the Tuesday and was told I would move into my first flat on the Friday. Now moving out of home was really exciting and I wanted to be there immediatly thing was - no furniture and no bed. I went on ebay and ordered this for next day delivery it cost me £40 but my thinking was I can't get another bed until I move in there and this can always be used as a spare anyway.
This is no ordinary blow up bed. As you can see from the picture it is the size and height of a regular double bed the dimensions for it are 152 cm x 203 cm x 56 cm and the best thing about it - no pumping up by hand! This bed is brilliant it comes with an inbuilt pump which is tucked into a compartment on the base of the bed here is the plug compartment and a dial for air in and out. So to use you simply plug the plug into the wall switch it on and away you go the bed inflates itself in less than 5 minutes. Once the bed is up it is firm and comfortable to sleep on and was a good bed substitute whilst I waited for my real bed to be delivered. The bed easily sleeps to people and is firm enough so as your not both rolling into the middle which can be a hazard with some blow up beds.
The surface of the air bed is velvty and nice and soft on my skin you could sleep straight on it comfortabley but we chose to put a sheet over it and a normal double bed fitted sheet did the job just right. We had our bed for about a year in the spear room which also doubled as a games room for my partner who one day got careless and left a beer bottle lid on it - the result a punctured bed! I was not happy especially as I had purchased it in the first place. The bed did come with a puncture repair kit but the tear was in a grove the bed surface goes up and down and to this day I still can not get the puncture kit to stay on well enough for it to work again. I think I shall buy another bed though for quests because they are really useful to have but the next on I will deflate and not let people with beer bottle lids near it!
To deflate the bed you simply flip the dial to air out power on and the air will come out of the bed ready for it to be rolled up and stored away the bed comes with a handy storage bag which means its stored neatly - this is what I should have done then maybe I could still use it today :(.
I give this bed 5 stars it is excellent quality and allows you to have a really comfy night sleep.
