When it comes to buying a mattress, it can be difficult to choose. There are tons of options out there. So many than even when you know what kind of mattress you want, there’s still going to be a lot of options to choose from.
To help make those decisions easier, we’re going to compare two very similar everyday air mattresses in this article. Both of these mattresses are designed to serve as your main mattress, not just a camp or travel bed.
But we’ll look at what makes these two similar and high rated mattresses stand out, and what makes them different.
This first mattress is the one that gave its name to this article. It’s a more popular version, in part because it comes in 4 sizes from Twin to King. This is a mattress designed for everyday use, but with the convenience and flexibility of air mattresses.
Comfort coil is a big deal when it comes to air mattresses. Think of these as an air mattress alternative to spring coils in traditional mattresses. They provide the basic support structure you need to be comfortable in your bed.
The Kingsize version of this bed comes with 48 comfort coils to provide a lot of support at whatever firmness you prefer.
Comfort Coils are also more flexible than springs. That’s because the firmness of the bed is determined by its internal air pressure. The coils are also filled with air, so why they provide support at any firmness, they can be adjusted from very soft to very firm with incredible ease.
Dual-chamber beds typically mean that they have different chambers for the left and right of the bed. That makes these beds more comfortable for partners since each person has their own supportive chamber.
Dual-chamber designs also help prevent sagging in the middle. The additional internal walls of the bed allow it to hollow out on either side to provide a supportive and comfortable resting place. But the beds won't encourage you to roll to the middle, crowding, or sleeping on top of, your partner.
One common concern with air mattresses is that they don't have the weight and steadiness of a traditional mattress. That means they can slip and slide if you place them directly on the floor, or in a bed frame without sides or rails.
The SureGrip Bottom on this mattress is designed specifically to solve that problem. Whether you put the mattress on the floor or a bed frame, it won't slip and slide.
SoundAsleep has also patented a 1 click air pump that fills your bed faster and designed this bed to stay inflated longer.
Even King size beds are designed to fill with a mere 6 minutes of operation. They’re also designed to maintain air pressure for days. That means you can go longer without having to top off your bed. You’ll get a better and more consistent night’s sleep.
This mattress is a very similar option. It’s a large air mattress that also uses ComfortCoil, it has a high-capacity pump built-in, and it’s designed to maintain air pressure for several days without needing a top-up.
But there are some key differences between these two mattresses. For one thing, this mattress is only available in 3 sizes and maxes out at Queen instead of King. Let's take a look at the key features of the Serene Life Dream Series.
Serene life also uses comfort coil. But in their case, the design focuses on providing good spinal support and preventing you from sinking uncomfortably into the bed.
Their comfort coils work to distribute your weight more evenly across the whole bed. That way you won’t find your hips or head sinking while you sleep overnight. While the bed is unlikely to lose much pressure in a single night’s sleep, this design means that your sleep quality and joints are protected if it does.
The built-in pump in this mattress is designed to be significantly quieter than its competitors. That’s important since it’s also designed to kick on anytime your bed drops below your desired air pressure.
Constant air pressure is important. Air pressure determines how soft or firm your bed will be. But when it changes overnight, even if you’re still comfortable, it can impact your quality of sleep.
The pump turns on quickly to make slight pressure adjustments. It’s quiet enough to operate without waking you, and it will refill the bed in mere moments.
You may not need a storage bag if you're intending to use this mattress every day. But, if you need a spare mattress for when guests come to visit, camping trips, or vacations, this storage bag will help keep your mattress safe between uses.
It’s also a handy way to keep the repair kit, and even sheets, handy with the mattress.
Many people think that a leak is the end of the line for an air mattress. But the good news is that it’s not difficult to find and repair small leaks. The included patching kit makes it simple to seal small puncture holes.
Especially if you have small children or pets, you should look for repair kits to be included with your air mattress. It will greatly extend the life of your mattress if you can fix up a little damage here and there.
While both beds feature similar designs and adaptations, there are still important differences between them. Both mattresses are high-quality, and we can easily recommend them. But they also highlight how important subtle product differences can be.
Hopefully, this article not only helped you choose between two similar beds but also gave you a better sense of what features you should look for in a new air mattress.
