There are a variety of mattresses today. They have come a long way from when they only used to be straw filled mattresses. Today we have memory foam mattresses for the health conscious user to water beds for a luxurious and playful sleeping experience. We also have our spring mattresses and for quick deployment and easy storage we have the air mattress
Air mattresses are usually used in the home when space is of consideration. They can be easily deployed using a mattress pump which inflates the air mattress. There are primarily two main means to power the air mattress pump.
We have our trusty manual pump. In this field they could either be fast operated or had operated just like a bicycle pump. It is generally more convenient/ less intensive to use the foot operated manual pumps. On the other side of true convenience we have electrical powered air mattress pumps. These wonderful bindles of convenience come with different configurations. We have electric pumps which can be plugged into the cigarette lighter port of a car. This is a trusty option for the camper. On the regular home front we have the wall socket operated air mattress pump.
The complexity of electrical air mattress pumps also differ. We have regular electric pumps which wall have to be monitored making sure that the pump does not keep putting air into the mattress until it ruptures on the higher end we have deluxe models which have sensors to automatically detect when the mattress is filled enough and it cuts off the supply of air.
The speed at which the electrical air pump finishes its task totally depends of the size of the mattress and the power of the pump. However an electrical air mattress pump is about 15 times faster than equivalent sized manual air mattress pump. A regular air mattress pump could set you back a healthy $15 while an electric pump costs as much as $70.
