We are used to the idea of a camping chair, but did we ever thought of a camping sofa? No, we didn’t, at least I did not. There are multiple reasons why it’s practically impossible to carry a sofa alongside. Its bulky and will consume a lot of space in the vehicle, as well as there is an additional hassle of keeping it clean. While we can’t carry a traditional sofa for camping, we can surely give a shot to the Aerogogo BS2 one-button Automatic Inflatable Sofa for sure.
Introduced by Aerogogo Tech, the Aerogogo BS2 is available in two versions: Loveseat and Armchair. Together they are called, GIGA Sofa on their website; however, there is no mention of that name on Indiegogo, where it is being crowdfunded.
It’s not necessary to think of their latest product as mere camping gear, as this one-button inflatable sofa can even be used both inside and outside the house. You can have this in your garden or even in your living area, that’s your choice to make.
The company mentions various key functionalities associated with the self-inflatable sofa which we will be discussing them one by one. So, how does one open the sofa? Well, you don’t need to involve in the hassle of pumping it manually, because the sofa comes with built-in air pump technology. So, all one need to do is simply press the button and the inflatable sofa will be ready for you to sit upon.
The built-in electric air pump is a highlighting feature. The company touts it utilizes Aerogogo’s original AIRVORTECH technology which is responsible for air-powered high-speed spindle to up to 50,000 RPM. When paired with a rechargeable 3,800 mAh battery, it offers rapid inflation at the press of a button.
With one complete charge, the built-in air pump can inflate an armchair for 12 times, while loveseat for 6 times, the company mentions. The built-in air pump is capable of inflating a single-seater in just two minutes and a double-seater sofa in just four minutes or so.
Now, when we are done with the basics, let’s talk about the ergonomic aspect. Weighing 14.6-lbs, it is a strong and robust sofa that can hold weight of adults. The Loveseat version can support up to 660-lbs of weight whereas the Armchair version supports up to 330-lbs weight. Overall, this easy-to-setup inflatable sofa is stretchy, smooth and ensures good support and maximum comfort to the user.
One aspect that you would be particularly worried about is sofa getting dirty outdoors, especially when carried for camping. You have a genuine concern, and that is why the sofa is designed with double layer of PVC and a washable fabric.
Currently being crowd funded on Indiegogo, the Aerogogo BS2 inflatable sofa is available at an early bird price of $119 for Armchair and $139 for Loveseat.
