Certain air mattresses do not have built-in pumps but instead, they require an external air pump that may not be included with the air mattress. Our comparison chart features 7 of the best air mattress pumps based on reliability, customer satisfaction and effectiveness.

Since many of the below air mattress pumps have universal fittings, they can be used to not only inflate air beds, but to also inflate other inflatable objects such as beach balls, kids toys, boats etc.
