    Good price but seems strange as they were reduced form £9.99 to £6.66 3 weeks ago at my local

    They'll always quote that the higher price was charged somewhere, at some date of their choice, so have getouts.

    Rubbish bed.
    Had one and used it three times....my hubby who isn't very big:thumbsup: slept on it and twice it deflated during the night....dumped it a few days ago. Tough for us because we bought it at full price:x

    Purchased 4 of these last year for family camping trip - 3 singles and a double. They worked fine the first night but subsequent nights saw us having to pump them up throughout the night. Very unsatisfactory in my view and all 4 ended up in the bin as there was no repair possible - they seem to leak around the screw thread which must distort after first use and then gets progressively worse. Probably fine for one night at a festival and then disposing of but wouldnt rely on them for a good nights sleep. I shoul really have taken them back to Tesco and complained direct !

    is there no kit to fix this problem>?? and those this come with a pump or does that have to be purchased separately?

    These are rubbish you want the ones with inbuilt electric pump. The doubles with the in built pump come up at Lidl and Aldi from time to time for £20 - £25....

    I don't expect to have to buy a 'fix it' kit when the bed is new and should stay inflated

    All air beds of this type are rubbish. They are unreliable, uncomfortable after a couple of nights, wick heat away from your body and if two people are using one then the movement of one person disrupts the other. You also tend to roll together in the middle.

    They cost more, but these are simply THE best camping mattress bar none - http://www.alpkit.com/airic/ - despite looking thinner, they are actually a million times more comfortable and durable

    I got this one the other day for £6.66 to use camping for 5 nights. Seemed pretty comfortable to me, and it pumped up quickly and was easy to deflate and put back in box. In short it does exactly what it says on the tin.

    Well, just wanted to add another side to the Tesco Airbed debate.

    I bought 2 of the double airbeds a few month back, and we have been camping with them.

    Blew them up, and they remained inflated for the two nights, and didn't need reinflating at all.

    The wife and I slept on one, and our son slept on the other.

    I didn't inflate them until they were 'solid', but left them with a bit of 'give' to them - they were fine once we lay on them.

    Could it be that other people may have slightly over inflated them, or just inflated them to the max and then with people sleeping on them, the seams have split?

    I also bought the tesco pump, and it took about 3-4 minutes to blow up one double airbed, connected to the car 12v socket.

    However, the pumps can be bought cheaper (£4.99) at Go Outdoors if you have a discount card.

    Well, I suppose it's trial and error with these. Personally, I bought one last week as I was sleeping over a mates house for a couple of nights. Didn't pump it up too much or anything, but it would not stay inflated at all. At first it was alright, though I did wake up in the middle of the night to pump it up again. The second night, I noticed it had actually started to go down a bit before i'd even got around to using it!

    In short, they are cheap quality. Even for £9.99, they're not really expensive, and selling them for £5 just shows how cheaply they are made.

    I suppose the only place it could really be leaking would be around the screw in bit where you blow it up, so if you really wanted to, you could use some plumbers PTFE tape to seal around it (though you shouldn't need to!!)

    I took mine back and got a refund. Didn't even bother with a replacement though I probably wouldn't have needed to use it again anyway!

    I wholeheartedly agree with the above statement, I own an Alpkit "Fat-Airic" & it's a better nights sleep than at some hotels I've stayed at..

    Spend some wedge on god quality kit that you will be able to pull out & utilise in a ,moments notice for years to come not cheap landfill tat like the much bemoaned tesco air-bed, yes they cost more, however look at it this way, you pay for your ticket to glastonbury (for example) & a cruddy nights sleep on a naff airbed affevcts your whole stay & maybe even a visit top the chiropractor upon return (more expensive than a proper sleep mat in the first place) ...:whistling:
    I can remember so many folk on cheaper than cheap mats & airbeds moaning for the duration of a festival, trailing behind as their bones ached & they hadn't got good quality sleep despite whatever else had been ingested.

    Mine cost £40, but hell it been used loads (we camp a lot) over the last couple of years. Plus i have lent it to friends countless times and its still as good as the day bought it. Also use them for guests sleeping over al the time (most go out and buy one afterwards). In the same time period (before i saw the light) i would gone though 4 or 5 (if not more) 'cheap' £10 air beds. TBH, if it was £100, knowing what i do now, i would still have bought one. Worth every penny.

    My partner sleeps on one next to me and what we did is buy a silk double sleeping bag liner and slide the two airics in. Holds them together and and gives you a lovely silk 'sheet' to lie on ;-)

    Going to buy one of the new kids ones for our little boy too now :)
