Ooler has a better design than the chilipad. The Ooler is a little sleeker and slightly shorter, making it easier to place under the bed. The Ooler looks more like an elegant device, and the Chilipad looks a little more utilitarian. Almost like a CPAP machine or something similar.
The Cube with ChiliPad and the OOLER are ChiliSleep devices and the OOLER works a little better than the Cube, in my opinion. Please note that the names have been updated recently and what we used to call ChiliPad has now become Cube with ChiliPad. The OOLER is now called OOLER with ChiliPad. Before comparing the BedJet with Chili Technology products, let's see how the ChiliPad sleep system and the new Ooler sleep system compare to each other.
The ChiliPad is the predecessor of the Ooler and, while it lacks some of the 26% whistle bells, it also has a better price. And for those who are not technology-inclined, it might be easier to work with a remote control than with an app. Chilipad and Ooler can also reach lower temperatures in general, especially when the ambient temperature is high. The cooler also avoids the lengthy cleaning process required to keep the Chilipad clean by automatically cleaning with UV light.
Both the Chilipad sleep system and the Ooler sleep system can reduce the temperature of the bed to 55 degrees or raise it to 110 degrees. All three products (the Chilipad OOLER, the BedJet and the Pod) allowed me to adjust the temperature as expected, but two things that clearly highlighted me with the Chilipad OOLER and the BedJet were their uneven and poor cooling effects. Like the OOLER, the Cube uses a hydraulic mesh pad (called Chilipad) that you can use to adapt an existing mattress. I decided on the Chilipad OOLER, the BedJet 3 Dual Zone and the Eight Sleep Pod Pro Cover; I wanted to give each of them a fair chance and avoid external “noises” or conflicting opinions, so I decided on a 2-week trial period for each and took notes regularly after each night's sleep.
On the other hand, if you live in a particularly hot and humid region, the Chilipad and Ooler sleep systems may be better. You can save a couple hundred dollars if you opt for the Cube with ChiliPad instead of the OOLER, but the updates in noise and the application in front of the OOLER come with a hydronic pad (known as ChiliPad Cool Mesh), its control unit and the OOLER application for sleep schedules. A disadvantage of the Ooler sleep system compared to the Chilipad sleep system is that it requires a smartphone application to work, which is bad news for those who don't have smartphones or who like to keep their phones turned off at night. Like the Pod Pro, the OOLER and the ChiliPad, the Pod Pro case cools down to 55 degrees and is only 5 degrees short of heating, with a maximum of 110 degrees, which should be more than enough for most sleepers.
Unlike the OOLER, the Cube doesn't have adjustable noise levels (which, in my opinion, is worth upgrading), it's not self-cleaning, and you'll need to run the Cube with the ChiliPad cleaning solution on your unit on a monthly basis, and there's no way to schedule a sleep schedule. Like OOLER and ChiliPad, the technology uses hot and cold water that regulates each side of the bed independently. The temperatures reached by the Cube with ChiliPad Cool Mesh are the same as those of the OOLER, taking you from a frigid 55 degrees to a warm and toasty 115 degrees.
