Insta-Bed Air Mattress Reviews

Insta-Bed air mattresses are really remarkable. I get a good night’s sleep and not once have I ever woken up and found my bed deflated. If you are looking for an air mattress for everyday use, look no further. The Insta-Bed is one of the most comfortable air beds you can find on the market.

Amazing Firmness Control

Insta-Bed has only air mattresses in the twin size and the queen size. All of Insta-Bed air mattresses come with a built in pump so all you need to do is plug the air bed in and turn on the switch. The air mattress takes less than 5 minutes to inflate completely. This however varies based on your hardness setting. The built in pump honestly takes convenience to a different level.

The feature that really sets Insta-Bed air mattresses apart from the crowd is their NeverFlat pump. We all know when it comes to air mattresses, there’s always a risk that you can wake up on the ground. Insta-Bed has a countermeasure for this plight.

The secondary pump which is more like a sensor ensures that your bed is kept at your preferred firmness setting throughout the night without deflating. This is done by topping up air in the air bed automatically whenever the level of firmness is detected to be low.

Its auto shut off feature also keeps pressure in check so when it reaches your setting, it will shut off and only pump air if there is a shift in air pressure in the air mattress.

Easy Storage

The built in pump also deflates the air bed quickly and completely so it can be folded up and stored away with ease. This did save me a lot of time. With some of the other air mattresses that I’ve tested I had to plug in external pumps and even then they may not deflate completely.

Most Insta-Bed air mattresses come with a carry bag or case that is rugged enough to be used outdoors.

Insta-Bed Raised Air Mattress

This is the best air mattress if you have back pain and wants the air bed to stay firm throughout the night. The Insta-Bed signature technology maintains comfort and ensure the air mattress stays full as you sleep.

The queen air mattress with built in pump inflates within 4 minutes which is quite fast. The queen size comes in three models that are the regular queen, the queen with a headboard and the queen with pillow top.

There is also a twin size option available but if an everyday bed replacement is what you’re looking for, head straight for the queen sized air mattress with a headboard because it is the closest it gets to an old fashioned bed.

Insta-Bed Raised Twin Air Mattress

There are three hardness settings that you can choose. I love the plush setting best because it feels like I’m able to sink into my slumber sooner. The queen and twin size air beds have different number of air coils that support me excellently no matter what hardness setting I choose.

Insta-Bed EZ Queen Air Mattress

It’s amazing how sometimes big things do come in small packages. I was amazed at how a compact duffel bag on wheels could house a queen sized air mattress. Use it as a guest bed or take it on the road with you.

This air mattress with a frame comes with an AC pump that is built in. There is an auto shut off feature that cuts off the air once your desired firmness setting is reached, so that you don’t have to guess or wait around to test the firmness.

The self deploying frame is a nice touch. It eliminates the risk of punctures while laying the air mattress on the floor and also raises the air mattress higher for easier getting in and out of. It is very easy to open up the frame, plug the cable into the AC outlet and let it fill up on its own.

Instabed Stow-n-Go

Instabed Stow n Go
If I were to recommend a good air mattress that could be used on an RV and is super versatile, it would be the Insta-Bed Stow n Go. This twin size Insta-Bed air mattress comes with a built in pump that inflates and deflates fast. The best part is how portable it is. This air mattress weighs very little and fits perfectly in the duffel bag it comes with.

The built in pump runs on 4D batteries that inflates the air mattress in under 2 minutes and deflates it even more quickly. The power of the batteries seemed to be sufficient to get the air mattress firm enough, though you may have to top up some air after the very first inflation as the material stretches a little.

I felt it was a shame that unlike the two models above, this model did not include the NeverFlat pump. On the bright side, it’s really affordable. Check out the price here.

Insta-Bed Raised Air Mattress – Best Queen Air Bed for Everyday Use

The queen size Insta-Bed Raised Air Mattress is the best queen air mattress that we’ve ever bought, and that means something because we’ve tried aplenty. If you are looking for a sturdy and firm air bed that is high or raised from the floor or to alleviate back pain, the Insta-Bed is your best bet. This queen air bed is the most sturdy air bed that we’ve ever slept on.

Why It is So Sturdy and Firm

Basically, there are two pumps in this air mattress. The first one does all the job of inflating or deflating the air bed as and when needed, and it is switched on and off automatically. I loved this feature because keeping track of the air getting into the air mattress prevented me from doing anything else in that period.

The second or “NeverFlat” pump ensures that the air bed remains firm. If that is what the pump is doing then it is doing a good job of maintaining the air pressure in the air mattress. The problem with airbeds is that they lose their firmness after sometime, but Insta-Bed may prove to be an exception thanks to this technology.

The size that I bought is the queen size Insta-Bed. The dimensions of this bed are perfect and the bed sheets fitted nicely over the air bed. This bed has a height of 18″, which is tall enough for getting in and out of the bed easily. If it were a couple inches higher it would be better still, but I suppose this height makes it sturdier than if it were higher.

Air Coils Make It Feels Like A Real Bed

The manufacturer’s description suggests that there are 35 coils inside the Insta-Bed air mattress. I have no intention to verify that and lose this air mattress for good, but let me assure you that the air bed does not feel as if it is air bed. The air coils do help make the air bed feel like a traditional bed with coils.

This air bed folds and fits into a small bag, although if you are going to use this as an everyday bed, you’ll probably keep the air bed inflated at all times.

Conveniently Maintains Firmness

I really like how the NeverFlat pump automatically adds some air into the air bed when the pressure has gone down. The air mattress does not leak air, you understand, but as all air mattresses go, they will lose a small amount of air slowly and over a few days the air bed will become less firm compared to the time when you’ve just pumped it up.

The convenience of having the automatic pump with sensor means I don’t have to check the firmness of my Insta-Bed before going to sleep, and I don’t even have to manually add air into it if it’s not firm enough. The NeverFlat pump does it for me!

The verdict? This is the best air bed to buy if you want a queen size air mattress for everyday use. You can get it here.
