Turn your bed into the perfect sleep sanctuary for both you and your partner with this dual-temperature mattress topper.

Bed sharing isn’t a simple business. While some of us enjoy sleeping in a veritable furnace, others enjoy a chilly mattress with a cool breeze filtering in through the window. Then there’s the weirdos who sleep with a 16.5 tog quilt but keep their leg stuck out all night.

Whatever your preference, you can guarantee your partner’s is the direct opposite. But thanks to this amazing Chilipad mattress pad, it doesn’t have to make life tricky.

Chilipad is a warming, cooling mattress pad that uses a smart water pumping system to keep your bed at the perfect temperature. It can be programmed to carefully regulate the temperature on both sides of the bed separately to give couples a restful night’s kip.

The mattress pad works with the help of a bedside motor that you control with a handy remote. When you’ve chosen the ideal temperature for both sides of the bed using the remote, water from the motor gets pumped past a chip that controls electron flow, determining whether the water gets hot or cold.

The water then makes its way through soft coils integrated in the mattress pad, actively adjusting the temperature of the bed’s surface.

If you want to change the temperature during the night, all you have to do is grab the remote and alter the temperature setting. You can control it in 1 degree increments, so over time you’ll get to know the specific temperature that help you drift off comfortably.


Chilipad’s motor, in case you were wondering, is virtually silent. The water tank will need feeling up from time to time, but other than that, you can pretty much just forget it’s there and enjoy your perfectly-heated bed.

Couple desperate to end the nightly tug of war over the quilt should definitely give Chilipad a whirl. Prices range from around $499 (£349) for a single Chilipad mattress pad, up to $1,099 (£768) for a king-sized dual-zoned Chilipad. Browse the range here.
