Buyer's Guide

We may be done reviewing some of the top products, but we are not done entirely. One of the biggest reasons we put this list together was to help people find the ideal air pump, but it is not just about knowing a brand.

If you are looking to buy the best air mattress pump, then this buying guide will help you. It has a list of all the essential features to look into when selecting the perfect product.

1. Type

The first and most important thing to consider is the type of air pump. Since you are looking to fill up air mattresses specifically, it is essential to buy a pump that can be compatible with any air mattress.

You can either go with an electric one that is powered with batteries or without batteries. Alternatively, you can opt for a manual foot pump as well.

2. Power

The next most crucial aspect is power. You do not want an electric pump that is too powerful or not powerful enough for the inflatable product. So, think about the items you have, be it a mattress or a pool inflatable.

Also, keep in mind the size of the inflatables as the bigger ones need more power. If you have a mixed bag of products, then I suggest getting a pump that can be connected to multiple power sources like a car or anywhere indoors.

3. Pressure

An air pump for beach balls and an air pump for automobile tires are very different. This is why it is essential to check the pressure ratings before buying a pump. Make sure you buy a pump with high-pressure ratings, as those can be used on multiple inflatables.

4. Noise

No one likes a noisy pump, and that is why noise level is an important factor. Since some of these pumps can take quite some time to fill the inflatable up, it is crucial to ensure it does so as silently as possible.

5. Nozzles

Most of the time, the pumps come in a complete package with multiple nozzles (three to four types). When selecting a product for yourself, make sure it has these attachments as they make the pump more universal for use.

6. Inflation Time

No one likes to wait around for a long time for anything, and much less while inflating. This is why make sure to look into the inflation time the product has to offer. Many can fill air beds within 5 minutes, while some take as long as 15 minutes.


Q1. Can I Use An Air Pump For Multiple Products?

As we have mentioned earlier, the capacity of an air pump to inflate depends on the power and pressure. The ones we have mentioned are compatible with not just air mattresses but also floaties and, at times, tires.

Q2. How Do You Deflate An Air Mattress?

Usually, air mattresses have an air valve that can be opened up for deflation. However, many electric pumps come with a suction port that can be used to suck out all the air from the mattress. In fact, the same can be used on vacuum storage bags as well.

Final Verdict

On that note, we finally come to the end of our guide on the best air pumps. We hope this has been informative and can help steer you in the right direction when it comes to buying these products.

Before leaving, we would like to point out our favourites from the list of products we mentioned. While we highly recommend all the five products, the Coleman air pump and the WindGallop electric pump took the prize.

Both of these are small, portable, and easy to use, no matter where you go. Plus, they are also backed by a warranty from well-reputed companies.

With that, it is now time to say our goodbyes. But, don't worry, we will be back very soon with many more such reviews. If you want to share your thoughts, let us know in the comments section.

Until next time!
