In a nutshell:
- The Dock Pro
- ChiliPad Pro Mattress Pad
- Sleepme app
- Machine washable
In more detail...
The Dock Pro
The Dock Pro is the cooling unit box you see in those pictures. It is ChiliSleep’s coldest and quietest cooling unit to date, and the device that powers the cooling and heating components in the ChiliPad. The Dock Pro cools your bed down to 55 degrees, or heats it up to 115 degrees Fahrenheit (13-46 Celcius). A big upgrade compared to prior ChiliSleep products, it only produces 41 to 46 decibels at 30 cm, for a quieter sleeping environment.
ChiliPad Pro Mattress Pad
The water-powered cooling / heating pad you place on top of your mattress, which keeps you cool and warm at night. Using a new temperature-regulating knitted polyester, it boosts more cooling power than any other ChiliPad. The ChiliPad Pro Mattress Pad fits mattresses up to 18 inches thick and provides 2 cooling / heating zones (1 for each partner) when purchasing the “We” option covering the whole mattress.
The ChiliSleep Dock Pro comes with the free sleepme app, which allows you to control the temperature of your Dock Pro, set temperature schedules, and control your unit remotely, so you can pre-heat your bed on your way home!
One of our favorite features of the Dock Pro is the fully machine-washable ChiliPad Pro Mattress Pad! Even better? Throw it in your dryer on low tumble and set it right back on your mattress for another night of cool sleep.
ChiliSleep Dock Pro Sleep Test
Everything we felt in one box
|Temperature||Mattress Fit||App Performance||Maintenance||Feel|
The ChiliSleep Dock Pro is the best performing heating and cooling device for your bed, cooling down to 55 degrees or heating your mattress up to 115 degrees. During our test, it cooled cooler than we were comfortable with, and heated higher than we needed for a comfortable night of sleep. We tested the Dock Pro in a warm room (83 degrees) and the unit had no problem cooling down to a comfortable temperature.
The Dock Pro fits mattresses 8 to 18 inches thick, which covers virtually any mattress you currently own. If you purchase a "We" model, it will cover the entire width of your mattress and be dual-zone. A "Me" Dock Pro will be a half-bed pad.
We love seeing technology in the bedroom. The sleepme app allows you to control your Dock Pro remotely. Start cooling or heating your bed from the couch, for it to be ready by the time you slide in. The sleepme app also allows you to set temperature schedules to optimize the Dock Pro for your personal sleeping preferences. The app is free and does the job it promises, allowing you to prep your machine without standing next to it.
This is a huge improvement for ChiliSleep. Since the ChiliPad Pro Mattress Cover has no tubes, wires, or electrical connections, you can throw it in your washing machine and dry it on low tumble, for very easy maintenance.
We found the ChiliPad Pro Mattress Pad to be much comfier than the original one since it does not have water tubes running through that you can feel. Since it is just 1/8 inches (3.2 mm) thick, it allows you to fully benefit from the comfort of your mattress. You will not feel much of the ChiliPad Pro Mattress Pod, which is exactly what you want.
ChiliSleep Dock Pro Prices & Discounts

Detailed ChiliSleep Dock Pro Review Conclusion
The Dock Pro is ChiliSleep’s newest and most performing bed cooling technology to date. They have upgraded the unit itself, as well as the ChiliPad Pro Mattress Cover that lays on your mattress and ultimately provides the heat or cooling you desire.
A few upgrade we enjoyed from the Cube Sleep System:
– the Dock Pro is very silent and acts as white noise
– the ChiliPad Pro Mattress Cover does not have water tubes running through it, which makes it barely detectable under your bed sheets
– we have experienced great cooling performance even when raising our bedroom temperature to 83 degrees
Let’s look at what we thought in more details!
Who Is ChiliSleep?
ChiliSleep was started by a couple’s desire to sleep better. Unhappy with what they found on the market at the time, Todd and Tara Youngblood put Tara’s background in science, and Todd’s background in product development, to develop a sleeping system giving rest back to its users.
They knew that VLPO neurons, in the brain, are triggered by temperature and that temperature-regulating bedding was the answer to many people’s lack of restful sleep. So they developed a water-based technology allowing bed covers to cool and heat on demand. Their goal was to give quality sleep back to all, even those who get just a few hours of sleep every night.
ChiliSleep has several products to help you regain power over the quality of your sleep. The OOLER and Cube help you control your bed’s temperature with a hydro-powered mattress pad. The ChiliBLANKET is a 15-lb hydro-powered blanket linked to either the OOLER or Cube control unit. And now the Dock Pro, the most powerful unit ever developed by ChiliSleep.
ChiliSleep also offers an array of sleeping accessories, from bed sheets to mattress protectors, and more.
One thing we truly respect, is ChiliSleep’s mission to provide better sleep to first responders and healthcare professionals. In just 2020, they were able to provide over $1M in sleeping products to first responders and healthcare professionals!

What Is Inside The ChiliSleep Dock Pro?
When purchasing a ChiliSleep Dock Pro, you are receiving three things: the actual control unit called Dock Pro, the improved water-powered mattress pad called ChiliPad Pro Mattress Cover, and access to the free sleepme app.
The Dock Pro is a rectangular unit 15 inches wide, 12 inches long, and 6.25 inches high, which should fit under most bed bases. It has a buttons allowing you to adjust the units temperature from the unit if needed. The Dock Pro can achieve temperatures of 55 to 115 degrees Fahrenheit (13 to 46 Celcius) and only produces 41 to 46 decibel of noise at 30 centimeters from the unit. It connects to wifi and right to sleepme app. You will receive one Dock Pro unit if purchasing the “Me” Dock Pro, and two if purchasing the “We” option.
The ChiliPad Pro Mattress Cover is a cooling mattress pad that comes has a half-bed coverage, or full bed fitting, depending whether you purchase a “Me” or a “We” unit. When getting the “We” unit, each partner will have their own Dock Pro unit, allowing them to control their side of bed’s temperature and temperature schedule. The improved ChiliPad Pro has no water tubes, electrical connections or wires, and is only 1/8 inches (3.2 mm) thick, so you virtually don’t feel it. It fits mattresses 8 to 18 inches thick.
The sleepme app is a free app allowing you to control the Dock Pro unit from afar. Start heating or cooling your bed from the living room, set a temperature from the car before coming in late, and even set temperature schedules to keep you deep asleep throughout the night. My favorite part? ChiliSleep is working on an Alexa (or other connected devices) voice controlled application to allow you to control the unit!
How Does The ChiliSleep Dock Pro Sleep?
If you are purchasing a ChiliSleep Dock Pro, you want to be able to control the temperature of your sleep. The Dock Pro will lower your mattress’ temperature as low as 45 degrees and as high as 115 degrees, allowing you to adjust the temperature to your personal preference.
We tested the cooling function in an 83-degree bedroom, and the Dock Pro performed well, cooling the bed to a comfortable sleeping temperature.
The sleepme app’s option to set temperature schedules works very well over wifi as well. If you prefer to turn your phone off at night, you have the option to use the buttons located on top of the Dock Pro unit to adjust temperature (not schedule).
This is the biggest ChiliSleep upgrade we have seen to date. The ChiliPad Pro Mattress Cover does not have water tubes traveling through it, and it is only 1/8 of an inch thick, making it nearly undetectable. The “We” option fits nicely over mattresses and does not slide. It lets you enjoy the full benefits of your favorite mattress. Lastly, there are no electrical wires or connections traveling through the ChiliPad Pro Mattress Cover, which means zero EMF transmission.
Another wonderful upgrade, the Dock Pro only emits 41 to 46 decibels of noise at 30 centimeters. Based on a Yale study, a suburban area at night produces roughly 40 dBA and a residential refrigerator produces around 55 dBA. We found it to act as white noise and it did not bother us in any way.
How Do I Care For My ChiliSleep Dock Pro?
Since the ChiliPad Pro Mattress Cover does not have electrical wires or water tubes running through it, you can easily disconnect it from the unit and wash it in your washing machine. You can even dry it on low heat / low tumble! We love how easy it is to keep the bed clean with the ChiliPad Pro.
When it comes to cleaning the Dock Pro unit, depending on your use, clean it every month to three months for optimal experience. You can use the ChiliSleep cleaning solution after having emptied all water and refilled the unit with clean distilled water. You will run the unit for an hour, empty it back up once more, before filling it with distilled water again. It will be ready to use immediately.
