Best Intex Air Mattress Reviews

(Last Updated On: August 15, 2018)

This is interesting because Intex air mattresses are a two-in-one design. What do I mean by this? I mean that this model of an air mattress serves as a box spring and a mattress all in one. I am not saying this takes the place of a traditional bed but it is a viable option. It is a lot cheaper than a regular bed but it will never take the place of a bed. If you have a strict budget then these will work for you. I do not know that these are very popular but they are available on the market today. Hopefully, this article will bring these types of air mattresses to the forefront. These types of air mattresses probably will not float very good on the water but they may make good sleeping beds on a camping trip. For all the value they offer they are very reasonably health.

The second followed the same pattern because a 130 lb sleeper slept on the mattress. The mattress deflated by 30% by morning and the second one was would not hold air as the first one would not.

The customer really cannot tell if the air mattress is better than a standard bed after only sleeping on it for two nights.

This is an encouraging review because the client had their expectations met with the mattress. The client bought the mattress and said the higher edge makes it easier to climb into the bed and you do not have to get on the floor to get into or out of the bed. The customer had guests over for a week and one loved it the other said it was too firm. The client deflated/inflated the mattress easily but let the mattress stretch for 24 hours and then they had to top it off so it would not lose any air. The instructions said to do this.
