Intex Air Mattress Review: Air Beds Can Be Comfy Too!
Air beds are a great quick fix for an old bed that has to be replaced, when you have more guests than you can handle or even when you go camping. Intex air mattress has both the indoor and outdoor version and it seems to be the most popular design on the market.
Where can you find an intex air bed?
On the Intex website you they sell several models but I think it’s best to buy spare parts from them. Look for and Intex air mattress on sites like Amazon or Target as you will have more models to choose from and you can also find it on sale.
Most of the Intex mattresses have built in pump for better access which is great if you plan to use the mattress indoors. However I couldn’t find out more about the plastic the mattress is made off. Yes, it’s a durable type of plastic but I was wondering how toxic it actually is.
Not all Intex air mattresses are built equal, so to speak, as they are different construction methods. If you are picky or intend to use the mattress on a regular basis than you should definitely check this aspect further. Comfort-Top Construction consists of two layers and seems to be the most supportive and flexible technology they have.
My take on the intex inflatable bed
For an air mattress this one sure takes the cake. My advice is to go for the ones that are at least 17 inches high because not only they are more comfortable to sleep on but they are more comfortable to get up in the morning too. The waterproof flocked top makes it so much easier to use because sheets actually stay on the mattress, you don’t sweat like hell and you don’t slip when you move around.
One issue all air mattresses have is the plastic smell it has after you first inflate it. You just have to allow it time and it should de-gas in les than a week. Open the windows or keep a fan near it and eventually wipe it off with some vinegar if you just can’t bare the smell.
Some models are backed up by a 90 day limited warranty but it’s no biggie because almost all problems can be fixed through an easy DIY. A small puncture can be covered by a patch and if the mattress deflates too quick you can either give it some extra pumps with the intex pump before sleeping on it or replace the valve/cap or plug.
The Foam Top Intex air mattress has a memory foam layer for a softer sleep while the Raised Comfort-Top Bed resembles a pillow top mattress. Basically, for around $100 you can sleep as comfortable as you would in a regular bed (if you had a bad mattress in the past, you will sleep even better).
The weight limit is important because you don’t want to end up on the ground so make sure to check this aspect before making the purchase. If in the product description doesn’t say anything about this, contact the seller or the company. Many customers said that they used the mattress every night for 2-3 years and the mattress still holds up nicely. If you respect the weight limit and take proper care of your mattress, you should be on the safe side.
The Intex mattress fulfills are the requirements of a good, supportive and durable mattress and all for a bargain price.
