It’s about as true as his ability to spell “mattris” (aka: mattress). I’m just givin’ ya’ a lil’ hell there @hchavers. Also, @gwrankin, I bet @thismyusername already knows this but they have a large width air release port that simply unscrews and lets the air put in seconds. get the last bit of air out in whatever way best suits you, fold it up & bag. Super easy. I would have bought one if not for the fact that I have 3 already… don’t judge me…LOL
@gwrankin@thismyusername Every single areobed I have owned I, eventually, have had to put in the bathtub to find where it needs patched. But then again I have cats so they might be to blame. That being said, leaks in air mattresses, including sleep number beds is not uncommon so I don’t think this is a “feature” of this just brand.
I slept on an air bed for a year and a half during college. They were a novelty at the time. $20 without a built-in pump. The store lent out vacuum cleaners to the college kids who bought them but had no vacuums. The patch kit was worthless for the leak that developed where an inner cell met the top surface, but a dab of super glue did the trick.
@ThunderChicken Super glue (the cyanoacrylate variety) on inflatables makes my skin crawl. When the glue dries, even slightly flexing the vinyl will result in a large, nasty crack that’ll be difficult to properly repair!
@Kidsandliz@ThunderChicken If we’re talking about cyanoacrylate, there is no such thing as ‘flexible super glue’. What you want is a methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) based proper vinyl glue, such as Loctite vinyl repair adhesive. It’s available at many stores for about $3 per 1 ounce tube. Look for the blue card with an air mattress on it!
@Kidsandliz The Loctite vinyl glue is a godsend for repairing anything inflatable. You can use it by itself on small punctures, or use it in conjunction with cut vinyl patches for very strong, permanent, flexible, waterproof repairs on seams or larger holes.
Do these have a weight limit or something? I’m personally a bigger dude and so are lots of my friends and family incidentally so having a catastrophic failure on an air mattress or something when someone visits and having to scramble to replace it seems not ideal
@Twiminy 600 lbs., according to the specs at newegg. That’s probably the capacity before it bursts. Most of these things have a tendency to make the occupants roll to the center when near capacity. Maybe a good thing, maybe not.
Have you ever huffed the air that is released from these?
It made me think that I had a single large breast on one side. I was searching all over for a uni-boob bra with underwire support…Woke up choking on a pair of panties in the local Lane Bryant.
