About 6 Second Lounge
Made of military grade ripstop nylon, 6 Second Lounge is a durable, waterproof, and stain resistant inflatable seat that claims to set up in a flash. All you have to do is:
- Open 6 Second Lounge and fill it with air.
- Roll it up, attach the clip, and pull the band to lock in the air.
- Sit back and relax, as 6 Second Lounge will hold up to 480 pounds.
When you’re finished using 6 Second Lounge, all you have to do is undo the clip and roll, and it’ll deflate instantly. Then, roll it up for easy carrying, as it only weighs 20oz.
Is 6 Second Lounge really “the easiest, most comfortable air lounger every created”? Or, is it an exact copy of an existing product? Either way, it is right for you? Let’s begin by taking a look at the competition.
6 Second Lounge vs. KAISR vs. Lamzac
Even if you surf the web infrequently, you’ve almost certainly seen an advertisement or two for “air lounges” and “air couches” like 6 Second Lounge, especially from brands like KAISR and Lamzac. As a testament to their popularity, KAISR raised more than $4 million during their recent Indiegogo campaign (almost 20,000 time their original goal!), and the Lamzac Hangout had a 2-month wait at the time during of our research.
In response to this overnight success, dozens of companies have risen to meet the demand and cash in on the opportunity with products like 6 Second Lounge. How do they compare to the originals?
Outside of price (which we’ll talk about next), most of these products appear to be essentially identical. They’re all made of some type of durable nylon-type material (similar to what’s used in parachutes), close using the same roll/clip/band method, and stow away in a much smaller area for easy portability.
However, the KAISR model implements useful features like a cup holder, a magazine insert, loops for staking to ground, and even a bottle opener. On the other hand, it doesn’t appear the Lamzac or 6 Second Lounge models have these features.
How Much Does 6 Second Lounge Cost?
One 6 Second Lounge will cost you $39.99 plus $7.99 S&H, although you’ll be able to purchase a second lounge during checkout for an additional $19.99 S&H.
All 6 Second Lounge purchases come with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges, as well as a 1-year guarantee. We had questions about what this covered, so we attempted to call Telebrands customer service at 844-814-2748. However, this led to an unrelated business out of Crockett, TX.
What Do We Know About Telebrands?
Of the 680+ As Seen on TV product reviews on HighYa, many of these are from Telebrands, since they’re the largest company in the industry. Although they’ve been responsible for many popular releases over the years, some of the more recent ones include Copper Chef, Ped Egg Power, Mighty Blaster, and many others.
They might be popular, but in general, it appears that HighYa readers haven’t been pleased with these products’ performance. Common complaints include poor quality, failure to work as advertised, and difficult customer service experiences—although these are common among all ASOTV products, and not just those from Telebrands.
Even if they weren’t, though, keep in mind we’re not saying you’ll necessarily experience the same with 6 Second Lounge.
As a company, Telebrands had a C- rating with the Better Business Bureau at the time of our research, based on 952 closed complaints. The company was also involved in a recent investigation by the NJ Attorney General’s office for allegedly violating the Consumer Fraud Act, which they settled for a $550K fine after admitting no wrongdoing.
Are There Any 6 Second Lounge Customer Reviews?
6 Second Lounge was brand new at the time of our research, so there weren’t any online customer reviews available. Even the products 6 Second Lounge is mirrored after—the KAISR and Lamzac—were so new that not a lot of online chatter was happening.
In fact, other than TheGadgetFlow.com (who provided little more than a 2-sentence review), we didn’t find any feedback whatsoever.
What’s this mean for you? Let’s wrap everything up.
Is 6 Second Lounge a 1-Second Bargain?
With the KAISR model priced at $86 and Lamzac coming in at $79 (plus shipping), 6 Second Lounge is clearly the winner in the price department. And considering the basic design used by these products, it’s unclear exactly how much better quality (if any) you’ll get from these mainstream models; e.g. grade of nylon, stitching pattern/number of stitches per cm, etc.
Does this mean you should roll the dice on 6 Second Lounge? According to their shipping policy, the product will be sent to you within 30 days of your order. So, not only might you save some money compared to the competition, but you might also have it in your hands much faster.
Just remember: If you’re dissatisfied, you’ll immediately lose $8 in S&H ($28 if you purchased the BOGO offer), plus whatever it’ll cost you to ship 6 Second Lounge back to the manufacturer.
