Air Bed Pump

Sunday, January 23, 2011

Pumping up an Intex air bed with an air bed pump is one of the best parts of owning Intex air mattresses. Whether you need to inflate an Intex queen air bed or an Intex camping air bed, an air bed pump will make the job fast and easy. And many of the airbed pumps that are included with Intex air mattresses can also deflate your airbed at the touch of a button. So if you haven't yet purchased an Intex air bed for your home or to take camping, then be sure to read through the following tips that can help you make a good buying decision. 

Inflate Air Bed Products
First of all, you need to know if you already own an air bed pump. This may affect your decision to buy an air mattress bed that already has an air bed pump inlcuded. If you already have an air bed pump that you purchased for other tasks like blowing up water rafts or tires, then you may not need to buy the Intex air mattresses that have a built-in air pump.

But then again, these built-in Intex air bed pumps can inflate air bed mattresses in a few short minutes without you having to carry around a separate pump. The main thing is to check your air pump to see if it has the proper attachments for you to inflate an air mattress bed or not. If it can't then you might as well buy one of the Intex air beds that has a built in air bed pump. You will find it to be much more convenient.

Air Bed Pump Options
You will also need to determine whether you want to purchase an electric air bed pump or a simple manual pump. A manual air bed pump does not require any electricity, but you will have to use your hands or even your foot to blow air into the airbed. This could take quite a long time before you are able to inflate the airbed even if it is just a camping air bed.

That's why you want to stick with an electric Intex air bed pump or even a rechargeable air bed pump. An electric air pump requires electricity in order for it to work, but it can blow air very quickly into the air bed and can inflate your air mattress in a few quick minutes. With smaller twin air mattresses, you may even be able to inflate them in less than a minute with a twin air bed pump.

In order to best determine which air bed pump would be best for you, it's important to determine your individual needs. If you are an avid camper, then an electric air pump is not going to work as well for you since you need an electric outlet. A manual air pump or rechargeable air bed pump will work much better if you go camping a lot. But if you are simply using your air mattress bed for occasional house guests, then buy an Intex electric air bed pump. They are much faster and more convenient for blowing up airbeds.
