Some people might think it’s a way to fill up your air mattress with more air. Some might believe that it’s a bra-like feature that supports your mattress. If you think it’s the first idea, then you’re right. It does exactly what it implies. The first air mattress pump was created to provide quality air flow to an air mattress without having to use your own air flow from your mouth. Have you ever tried blowing up a balloon that made you feel winded after it was fully blown? Magnify that feeling by 1000. Now, do you have the desire to blow up an air mattress? We didn’t think so. That’s what makes an air mattress pump so fantastic. It does all the dirty work so that you don’t have to. It makes life so much easier and the best part is, you don’t have to work at all to fill up your air mattress/air bed. Most air mattress pump products have the ability to plug into an outlet, while other camping air mattress pump products are made to plug into your car’s cigarette lighter. Either way will work exactly how you want it to.
How to Use an Air Mattress Pump
When filling up your air mattress, make sure you don’t over fill or over pump. Just like a car tire, too much air is a bad thing. Fill your mattress up just enough to support your body weight. The reason you shouldn’t fill your mattress up too much is due to the fact of pressure. When you fill your mattress up too full, then lay down on it, there is a chance your bed will pop, due to the amount of pressure you’re putting on the outer ends of the bed. *If you have recently purchased an air mattress pump, but find yourself with a popped air mattress, read our post on How to Fix an Air Mattress Hole.

Tips on Purchasing an Air Mattress Pump
Make sure that when purchasing an air mattress pump, you buy one that is guaranteed. A lot of air pumps are low in price, resulting in low in quality. A better solution would be to buy an air mattress pump that might be a little bit more expensive than what you’re looking for, but the overall cost and quality will last much longer than other cheaper types of air mattress pump products. There are a lot of quality air mattress pump stores available to you. The one we enjoy the most is the Coleman Air Mattress Pump.
