Rana discussing the Bedjet vs chilipad

Should I buy a Bedjet or a Chilipad?

Short answer, it depends on whether your issue is sleeping too cold or too hot. Some of you are video people and some would prefer to read about it so, I’ll give you both options. First, you can watch my video and below that I’ll give you my video’s transcript. After you have made your decision I’ll provide you with some discounts on the product that you have decided that you want to go with.

Who Will Love Chilipad or Ooler

  • People Who Want to Have a Bed that's Too Cold

    The coldest setting is too cold for me.

  • People Who Want a Quiet System

    The Ooler's lowest setting produces less noise than the other sleep devices I tested.

Who Will Love Bedjet

  • Shark Tank Fans

    If you are a Fan of Shark Tank, then you know about the bedjet.

  • People who want instant warmth

    It takes no time to set up the Bedjet V2 or the Bedjet V3

Bedjet Vs. Chilipad Vs. Ooler Video Review

Here is a 3 way review of cooling and heating products for your bed.  I also have the upgraded Bejet V3, but I didn’t BUY that until after I made this video (read more about where I got the products in the FAQ below).

Bedjet V3 (2019 New Model) Video Review

Here is the latest version of the Bedjet.  I personally purchased this after Bedjet kicked me out of their affiliate program… I have digressed a bit there, you can read about that in the FAQ section below.

BedJet Vs. Chilipad Video Transcript

I received both products from the companies in the Winter of 2017. Flash forward a year and I’m finally ready to tell you which is better, and under which circumstances you would want to choose one product over the other. In a way I’m a bit embarrassed that it took me this long, but there were 4 things that really held me back on putting this video together. Before we get started thanks to Bedjet and to Chilipad for letting me do a long run test on these bed warmers/bed coolers.
1. I had to try them both in the winter and in the summer (then I needed to wait for it to get cold again and see which one I pulled out of storage)
2. They are both LOUD They are loud right? 2019 Update Scroll to the bottom for a sound test.
3. I don’t like bulky items so I don’t use them very often
4. I wanted to really understand the maintenance issues that would occur after a year. At the price that these sell for I wanted to make sure that they would still work after a year.
So after a year are either of these a gimmick purchase? No they both do their jobs properly after a year of being tested, then stored, then tested, then stored. And now I’m testing them again for this video.
I’m going to skip ahead and tell you which one to buy, and then I’ll defend my position. Of course, you are welcome to comment if your opinion is different.
Summer TIME CHILIPAD no doubt. I can see a comment coming RANA IT IS WINTER
Oh yeah, it is winter here. It was cold last night, at 3 in the morning my husband pulled a BEDJET out of storage and turned it on for my daughter since she has been sick for the last week.
Confused yet? It’s as simple as this- SUMMER time use a CHILIPAD. WINTER TIME use a BEDJET
Here is the strength of the BEDJET- it is an easy set up, and it has the ability to warm up a cool room
The weakness of a BEDJET, it doesn’t have a true cooling or air conditioning effect. What I mean is that it picks up air from the ground and either lets it pass through or warms it up. So imagine you live in a hot humid state like Florida and your air conditioner goes out. How excited would you be if I told you that you could buy a device that would move the hot humid air from the ground and blow it into your bed sheets. PROBABLY not too thrilled right? However, in the winter it will take that cold air from the ground and warm it up before blowing it into your sheets.
How about the CHILIPAD? It’s strength- it keeps you cold. Imagine having menopause or hot flashes or just sweaty nights. The chilipad will no doubt keep your bed cool any time of the year. I have never been able to sleep on the CHILIPAD’s coldest setting 55 degrees, it is just too cold for me. Fortunately, there is a huge range of temperatures to select from so don’t worry too much about being too cold. In the winter it does a great job of heating up your bed, all the way to a scorching 110 degrees.
Chilipad’s weaknesses- maintenance, setup, and I don’t really like feeling the water tubes on my back.
To wrap up this bed warming or cooling battle:
They are essentially priced the same, it just depends on the options that you are selecting.
I know what you are thinking, no way I’m buying both. I get it, I’m lucky to have this kind of problem. Let me tell you which one I would choose if I had to.
I gotta go with the CHILIPAD as it has year-around usage, vs. Bedjet which is only useful when it is cold.

Chilipad just released a new version which is called the Ooler. It is much quieter, and can be connected to your smart device to schedule bed time/wake up time. You can see my new video comparing the sounds of all three of these devices below.

My BedJet V2 vs. Chilipad video has been pretty successful for me, it has over 10,000 views so I don’t want to just throw it away.  However, I recognize that it is rapidly becoming obsolete as there is now a BedJet V3 (which I just bought).  And the Ooler.  After I get some time to really explore these two further, I will update the video and show you the old bedjet, the new bedjet, the chilipad and the ooler.  I may also pick up some other sleep systems, so if there is something that you want to see in my next video please comment below and I’ll look into getting one.

With a Chilipad you can lower your bed's temperature to 55F or raise it to 110F. The Ooler is their improved, whisper quiet version.

Bedjet sent me the Bedjet V2 almost 2 years ago.

Chili Technology sent me the Chilipad about 2 years ago.

Chili Technology sent me the Ooler in the Spring of 2019.

I PURCHASED the Bedjet V3 this summer (2019) when it launched.

I have an affiliate relationship with Chili Technology.

I HAD an affiliate relationship with Bedjet.  However, they didn’t like one of my videos and insisted that I remove it within 48 hours or they would kick me out of their program.  48 hours came, and sure enough, they came through on their threat.

All of the opinions expressed in this review are mine.

  1. Thank you so much for the review between the 2 products.
    We recently moved to AZ and we are living in an apartment until we figure out where we want to live in the city. My question is this, we have a queen at the moment but hope to get a king once we move in 9 to 12 months, are we able to buy a king and use it on our queen until we get the new bed?

    1. The units of the bedjet and chilipad and Ooler will work fine as you move up to a king. However, they sell different size sheets or pads so you would likely need to buy another set of those after the move. I also live in AZ, so if you want to know the experience of a bedjet this summer remember that it isn’t an air conditioner. So as long as your room is say under 80 degrees it will feel colder just like it would if you turn on a fan in the room. The sheets that Bedjet sells target the air flow so you could still use it with normal queen size sheets and then buy their zoned sheets in king size when you move.
