Unfortunately, additives such as automatic switch-off or carrying bags are missing. The lying comfort is also mediocre.

The Active Era Premium Air Bed did not quite convince us in the test. The comfort is rather moderately on the air bed and one could see that air escaped over a longer period of time. The material doesn't look so high quality and smells very chemical and unpleasant. The assembly and disassembly is explained in the manual and works easily. With a time of 2:26 min the bed was one of the fastest inflated, but the airbed was not very big. The air blowing takes the longest with 4:35 min. All in all, the mattress fulfils its purpose, but could not convince us in all points.
The Active Era Premium Air bed comes in a strongly illustrated cardboard box, which contains the most important information. The airbed is packed in a plastic case. The mattress is covered on the upper side with a light grey fabric, otherwise made of a blue material. Unfortunately there is no information about the material on the part of the manufacturer. When it is removed, the airbed feels good, the material surface is very stiff and feels uncomfortable. It is also noticeable that it smells strongly chemical. The smell does not improve even after one hour of aeration.
For use, the mattress must be unfolded and placed in a dry place. The 220 V cable is integrated directly into the air bed. The cable is located behind a cover on the button. The package also contains the instructions for use, which are written in four informative languages. Pictures and illustrations that visually illustrate the structure and use are helpful. On the positive side, there is a small note attached where the manufacturer turns to the buyer and thanks him. This is a lovely gesture.
The air bed has a warranty of 12 months. If you register online within the first 7 days, you can extend it to 24 months.
The delivery includes:
- Instruction manual
- 2 repair patches
- Air bed
The Active Era Premium Air Bed should be connected to the power supply when unfolded. Then the construction is very simple: A switch box with a rotary knob is integrated on the side of the air bed. The following settings can be made on the knob: "INFLATE", "OFF", "DEFLATE".
To let in air, turn the switch from "OFF" to "INFLATE". Then the ventilation starts automatically. Please note: The ventilation must under no circumstances be blocked or dirty! There is no supply stop. So you have to set the switch back to "OFF" to stop the air supply. It took about 2 minutes and 26 seconds until the mattress had a solid height and we felt it was ready for testing.
It was noticeable that the temperature of the ventilation was increased when inflating. The ventilation was also very loud - measured at a distance of one meter, it was 80 dB according to the sound level meter. One should therefore pay attention to the time of construction if people are already sleeping in the house or if there are noise-sensitive creatures in the room.
Please also make sure that infants aged 0-15 months should not lie on the mattress or sleep. There is a high risk of suffocation here!
As soon as the air is to be deflated, the switch must be turned from "OFF" to "DEFLATE". It took about 4 minutes and 35 seconds until the air was completely sucked out of the airbed.
It is recommended to let the ventilation cool down before storing. The air bed can then simply be folded up again and cleared away.
The air bed did moderately well in the comfort test. The lying sensation was mediocre, the surface felt hard and the material caused the hair to charge electrically. However, after several minutes of use, the mattress still looked very stable. The size scored well in our test.
Two people can fit next to each other on the air bed without any problems. If you move on the mattress, it makes no unpleasant noises. However, lint sticks to the viscose surface very quickly. It is also not easy to remove, the material generally attracts dust and fibres easily.
After the comfort test, our airbeds had to pass the long-term test. We blew them up completely and set them up overnight. The difference in height is our result. The Active Era Premium Air Bed has a height of 40 cm in the evening. The next morning the air bed was only 39 cm high. In addition one could feel clearly that with the pressure test less air was in the mattress than on the previous evening.
According to the manufacturer, the air pump does not require any maintenance. The repair patches should simply be used for holes. The surface should be cleaned with soapy water, but according to the manufacturer do not use chemicals.
