If you are a fan of Shark Tank, then you may have already heard of the Bedjet V2 Climate Comfort System with Biorhythm Sleep—or just the Bedjet V2, to keep it short.
The Bedjet V2 is a bed temperature control system developed by Mark Aramli for those of us who struggle with being too cold or too hot while we sleep.
It's easy to assemble, thanks to its comprehensive and easy to follow manual and—the best part in my opinion—is its Dual-zone temperature control feature add on.
Since Bedjet is compatible with all bed and mattress sizes, you will be able to use it as soon as you have it set up and ready to go!
Like all good things in life, however, the Bedjet cooling and heating system has Pros and Cons that we all need to be aware of—if you want a more comprehensive look on this system, keep reading!
On June 14th BedJet will be releasing the BedJet 3. This new system can currently be pre-ordered from BedJet's website at the cost of $449 for a single unit and comes with a whole suite of improved features.
The new BedJet 3 is 30% smaller than the previous model, only needing 6 inches of clearance to fit underneath a bed. It is also sleeker and more modern looking in design. The BedJet 3 can now cool your bed as low as 66 degrees ℉, while the BedJet V2 can only go as low as 72 degrees ℉.
A color screen remote comes with the new system and can delicately control all features of the BedJet 3, instead of just adjusting the temperature. This remote is Wifi enabled so it can be used with Amazon's Alexa or with SmartHome technology.

BedJet 2 - Detailed Review
How it Works
To some, the Bedjet V2 may sound too good to be true—a system that can ensure you aren't too hot or too cold during the night just isn't something we are used to seeing (hence why Shark Tank picked up on the idea pitched by a highly skilled design team).
Sure, most of us have owned, or tried out, standalone fans or heating units, but how many of us have ever owned a product that turns our bed into a climate-controlled bed?
So, what makes the Bedjet V2 special and—most importantly—how does it work?
The Bedjet V2 bed warmer and cooler is designed to be compatible with all beds and mattress sizes—it will even work with most adjustable beds as well, just make sure refer to the instruction manual and test it out once installed on an adjustable bed to ensure it is properly installed.
Once installed, the Bedjet V2 will help warm you up or cool you down by delivering a stream of air.
It comes with a remote for you to easily control the temperature—and it even offers Bluetooth connectivity, so you can control it directly from your phone if you prefer (or if you ever happen to misplace your remote).
The bed cooling system kicks in almost immediately, and the heating system is just as impressive—and controlling these is made even more simple thanks to the system's biorhythm sleep sequence, which we will discuss when we go over all of the features the Bedjet V2 has to offer.
How Difficult is It to Install?
This system is intended to be really easy to assemble and come with a thorough manual if you happen to have any questions. The process shouldn't take you more than 10 minutes, and it won't require any additional tools—so don't worry about having to hold off on setting it up because you don't have what you need.
All you need to do is place the system's mounting bracket where you want on your bed and ensure that the hose sits in a place where it can deliver the best airflow.
You can easily store underneath your bed—but if you don't have enough space for that, you can use a bracket to mount it and keep it out of your way.
Everything It Has to Offer
The Bedjet V2 effectively and efficiently regulates temperature during the night, so you sleep soundly and comfortably. Before discussing the beneficial features, let's talk about how body temperature and your quality of sleep go hand in hand.
The Science Behind the Bedjet V2
To develop the improved Bedjet V2, the company worked with sleep doctors and used sleep studies by the NIH and Dutch Institute for Neuroscience that present information relating to core temperature and sleep quality.
While the original Bedjet was designed to be an effective temperature regulating system, the V2 takes much further.
The findings from the sleep studies led to a system that effectively helps your body reach ideal temperatures by tracking your circadian rhythm with bed climate control thanks to the use of biorhythm sleep tech—which uses sleep sensors that account for your sex/age/body type to deliver a temperature profile tailored for you.
Sleep studies show your body needs to be cooler when in REM sleep—the biorhythm system ensures you reach the target 97.3℉ at REM sleep and has a wake trigger zone that lies between 97.4℉-98.4℉ (although that doesn't mean it functions as an alarm clock).
More on Biorhythm Technology
The Biorhythm Tech is used solely by BedJet and is one of its best features. It allows you to have full control over the cooling and heating cycles, even while you sleep.
The temperature cycles between the temperatures of 72°F and 104℉ which you can play around with until you figure out what is best for you. The best part is that it works with your natural sleep cycle so, on top of comfort, the system also helps you sleep more effectively and efficiently.
App and Bluetooth Connectivity
While the Bedjet V2 system comes with an easy to use control, it also has a free accompanying app that you can use. The app offers lots of beneficial features and works with all iPhone and Android smartphones via Bluetooth connectivity.
While the app has all of the same settings as the remote, it also has additional features and choices that the remote does not have—which is why so many users prefer it over the remote that comes with the system.
For example, with the app, you can select a specific temperature number—which is much faster than using the remote to click up or down to your preferred setting.
Since Bluetooth connectivity can be unreliable, I wanted to touch on that subject as well. Although there are not very many complaints regarding the overall Bluetooth connectivity function, there are users that experienced issues during OS updates.
Luckily, the company provides excellent customer service if you encounter an issue, and of course, you can rely on the remote as a back up while it is fixed.
On top of the additional features the BedJet V2 offers on its own, you can also purchase additional accessories that will help you get the most out of your system. Below we will go over these product add-ons and what they have to offer.
Temperature Regulation for 2—so, No One has to Give their Comfort Needs
Earlier on I mentioned one of the best parts of the BedJet V2 is the Dual Zone Temperatures Control feature, which you can purchase as a bundle.
The single zone system is perfect for any size bed and mattress. However it is best for single person use or for partners that have similar needs—or don't mind their partner's preferred temperature setting.
If you sleep with a partner in bed, then you may prefer the Dual Zone bundle because it will allow you both to set it up to your preferred settings, while still sleeping in the same bed—can you imagine?! No more fighting about whether the fan is on or off or the heat being too high!
With the Dual Zone temperature control, both of you can actually have one side cooling while your partner has their heating. It is used with the AirComforter and can be set to each of your own preferred settings—no matter how different they are.
With this feature, you can both take advantage of the Biorhythm technology to improve your sleep quality along with your comfort levels.
It is important to note that the Dual Zone bundle is only available in King and Split King beds.
However, this does not mean the dual zone tech cannot be used on any size bed. For non-King beds, you can set up to systems and use the AirComforter (which we will talk about in just a second) to get the same effects.
Some users have stated, however, that the Dual Zone feature works best with larger beds because you can keep a bit of space between your partner. This allows you to get the most out of the bed cooling device and ensure you stay comfortable throughout the night.
Get the most out of the BedJet with the AirComforter
The AirComforter is made 100% cotton and has 2 individual cavities. These cavities are designed for the system's nozzle and will prevent your partner from experiencing your temperature preferences.
While its necessary for the Dual Zone temperature control, the AirComforter is also perfect if only one of you wants to use a BedJet. It will allow you to set your preferences while your partner can still enjoy the room temperature if that is what they prefer.
Before you turn your Bedjet on, the AirComforter looks like your average bedsheet, so you can still make your bed with your decorative bedding. Once you turn the BedJet on you will see the airflow so that you can see the difference.
The sheet can be washed and is made of high-quality material so that it won't shrink easily or quickly. It is designed to last. The 4 chambers at the bottom, where you place the hose to the system, are also well stitched and designed to hold the hose in place, so it isn't easily sliding or moving around.
Some users who do not use the AirComforter have complained that the system makes their lower body cold and their upper body sweaty. If you don't want to spend the extra money on the get-go try the system out and see if you experience this issue.
If you find that you do, the BedJet AirComforter will rectify this issue.
Instead of having the system blow hot or cold air directly to your feet, it will actually blow it underneath the comforter, alongside your feet.
This allows the AirComforter to evenly-distribute the air and to provide your upper and lower body with the same consistent temperature and airflow.
Keep your Bed Fresh with the Aromatherapy Diffuser Kit
Another great add on you can consider when you purchase the BedJet V2 system is an Aromatherapy diffuser kit. This may be especially important to those of you who sleep with a partner and don't want to deal with any unpleasant odor—if catch my drift.
With the aromatherapy kit, you can use the essential oil of your choosing—and even switch them out as you prefer—to not only provide you with the therapeutic aroma but also to keep your sheets smelling fresh.
Is Bedjet More than Just a Fan?
One of the most common questions the BedJet has had to face is what sets it apart from "just any other fan."
Many reluctant buyers may find the BedJet V2 to be a "glorified" fan—but it is anything but that.
First of all, even if it was "just a fan," the BedJet V2 is designed to provide temperature regulated air flow. This means that you choose the temperature—whether it is hot or cold as well as how hot or cold it is.
Mark Aramli, the inventor and lead Engineer of the BedJet, was actually a Nasa engineer that worked on the life support system of the Nasa space suit—more specifically he worked on the temperature elements of the space suits made for astronauts.
He used his knowledge to develop the high tech BedJet system and worked with sleep doctors as well as used sleep study evidence to develop a temperature regulating system that also helps you sleep better.
Furthermore, if you sleep with a partner it allows you both to either use the system to enjoy your desired temperature—or with the AirComforter, one of you can use the system while the other sleeps in the standard room temperature.
This eliminates those pesky arguments about whether you can turn the fan or not, or whether the heat is turned up too high.
On top of that, the Bedjet V2 is much quieter than a fan—quieter than the Dyson fan which, by the way, is also more expensive than the original BedJet.
The BedJet V2 system comes highly rated by users—it is actually rated the #1 bed temperature regulating system.
It provides you with the temperature you prefer and allows you to adjust it to your needs. The Biorhythm technology is not found in any other product and cannot be found in your standard fan.
This system pulls air directly from your room and automatically adjusts the temperature of its airflow regardless of your room's ambient temperatures. So, if the temperature drops or rises the system will adapt to continue to provide you with your desired sleeping temperature of choice.
Better than an Electric Blanket
Electric blankets are great for the winter because they heat up and keep you nice and toasty. Unfortunately, they don't provide any cooling elements and are not great in warmer temperatures. They also don't take into account that you need cooler temperatures in REM sleep, so they may actually inhibit your sleep quality, especially if your core temperature fluctuates on its own anyway.
How It Stands Compared to Similar Products
The Chilipad Cube is by far the most comparable product since it can provide both cooling and heating options. However, the BedJet is much more affordable in comparison and offers some features and technology that the Chilipad Sleep System does not. But Chili Technology has just released a new product called OOLER Sleep System that has new features comparable to Bedjet. We have done a detailed analysis and comparison of these 3 bed cooling systems here if you want to see how they compare to each other. By the way, a detailed review of chiliPAD cooling system can be found here.
How Much Does Bedjet Cost?
At the time of this writing, the official Bedjet store had a better price tag. It also offers an extra $50 off with free shipping and free returns.
|V2 Climate Comfort System with Biorhythm Sleep Technology||Single||$339|
|V2 Dual Zone Climate Comfort System for Couples||Dual||$779|
|Certified Refurbished BedJet V2 Special||Single||$289|
Given that the Single Zone Bedjet V2 system is under $400, it is more affordable than other "comparable" products or high-tech fans.
Of course, if you opt for the Dual Zone bundle or want to get any additional accessories with the Single Zone, the price will go up.
If you do opt to get some of the add-ons, you will find that they are well worth the cost and help you get the most out of your system.
Add-ons are designed to enhance the system and help you stay comfortable throughout the night.
Given that the BedJet V2 was designed after the company collaborated with professionals to develop a temperature regulating system that also improves your sleep means that its cost far exceeds its value.
The system's app is easy to use, and if you are worried about its electrical usage you will find that you can control it further to prevent over usage—so this depends on how you use it.
It is important to note, however, that it may help you cut costs in the winter since you can keep your home's heating system set much cooler.
The best part about this company, in terms of value, is that the company offers excellent customer support. Whether you have Bluetooth connectivity issues or happen to complain on Amazon (or to the company itself), you will find that the company's owner often personally replies himself—which is not a common practice.
If you find that you can't afford this system, or want to spend less, you can also take advantage of the company's scratch and dent refurbished special to get it at a more cost-effective price.
