About the paragraph 'External links'[edit]

The link in that paragraph is Advertising, isn't it? Put it away, or I'll do. Wikipedia is an Encyclopedia and no Advertising website. Sorry for my bad English (If I made a mistake). --Crout1 17:21, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Reference 4, to, is invalid. The domain is up for sale and has no relevant content. Perhaps someone with an interest in the topics addressed can find a better. I am not at all happy with such sites that tend to scare consumers with poorly sourced facts, such as a commonly used plastic being 'poisonous'.Eugen Hamerle (talk) 22:08, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi Eugen, I doubt that we can know the merits of the website in qn given that it's gone. I've left a msg re minor edits on your talk page. BenevolentUncle (talk) 23:41, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Sleeping pad[edit]

I noticed that "It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with Sleeping pad". I tend to think that an "air mattress" is a water toy or pool toy. For sleeping I believe it is commonly called an "air bed" or "inflatable bed". Also I believe that a "sleeping pad" is generally not inflatable. Sean.barton 00:57, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

I wish the person suggesting the merge had given a reason. The two articles reference two completely different things. An air mattress or inflatable bed or air bed is generally held to be an inflatable structure of standard bedding dimensions, i.e."Twin","Full", "Queen", etc. These objects are absolutely not designed for nor appropriate for use in the rough, outdoor conditions for which sleeping pads are designed. Actually, the technology has progressed quite a bit in the last years and deserves considerably more than we have here. When I have time... Would the person suggesting merger be so kind as to explain their rationale? Thanks Panthera germanicus 12:52, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

Air Beds are completely different that sleeping pads. As a matter of fact there should be made a distinction between camping air matresses, guest air mattresses and permanent air mattresses. The way the article is written jumbles up all 3 types. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sandman52 (talkcontribs) 02:10, 23 December 2007 (UTC)


I just took "Siemens" out of "Siemens mobile phone" in the picture caption. Perhaps I should have discussed it first on this talk page but my reasoning was that mobile phones really don't have anything to do with air mattresses and Siemens mobile phones certainly don't have anything to do with air mattresses. So it seemed to me that someone planted it their as advertising and so I removed it. If others disagree please put it back. Note that the word "Siemens" is still clearly visible in the photograph.

Lilos are water toys[edit]

Lilos are not air beds, they are water toys. Air mattresses are completely different. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:00, 29 November 2010 (UTC) Please lets not get bogged down in a definitions debate. I was hoping not to have to reference all the stuff myself, but you can get the flavour of what I am talking about by searching YouTube for "liloing". The article already starts by saying that in some countries an air mattress is called a lilo. In Australia, the term 'air matrress' and 'lilo' are used interchangeably, but 'liloing' has the specific meaning described. It's a big world, and different countries validly use different words differently. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:53, 1 January 2013 (UTC) If you don't mind, I'll clean up my edits - what you reverted was a one-word clarification. If you feel you must, feel free to set up a different article called liloing, but given that what I wrote was about the uses and availability of different types of air mattresses, and that the article already defined lilo the way I have used it, and given that on wp, lilo disambiguates to air mattress, I reckon that the work of such a re-organisation should be left to you. Either way, please let me have 5 minutes to finish my sloppy proofing. cheers, Jack. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:00, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Link to commercial website[edit]

I am reverting back in the citation that uses a commercial website. I am disappointed the anonymous editor does not appear to have acted on the notes in the history. Please log in before reverting my revert.
