The Beautyrest Recharge Hybrid collection was one of two Beautyrest lines of hybrid mattresses in 2014, the other one being the Beautyrest Black Hybrid collection. In 2015 this has become the only hybrid line under the Beautyrest brand as Simmons unifies its Beautyrest models under one brand. Simmons now lists four Beautyrest Recharge lines as the Beautyrest Black and Comforpedic brands are being phased out.
Among features carried over is the BeautyEdge Foam Encasement. This edge support for the surface and perimeter support for the pocket coils is also part of the AirCool Design. The foam wall is penetrated by a line of vents to facilitate the exchange of air between the exterior and interior of the mattress.
The 2015 collection retains the 1000 coil count Beautyrest Pocketed Coil support unit. These individually wrapped pocket coils conform to a sleeper's body contours to reduce pressure and support the spine. They also isolate motion to minimize partner disturbance. Missing in the 2015 desciption of the Recharge Hybrid collection are the microcoils used in select models. This does not rule out their use in models customized for certain retailers.
The most notable change in the Beautyrest Recharge Hybrid line is in the comfort layers. Some of the changes are in name: AirCool® Memory Foam with GelTouch™ is now AirCool® Gel Memory Foam, Micro-Diamond™ Infused AirCool® Memory Foam is AirCool® Max Memory Foam, and Dynamic Response Memory Foam is ContourFit® Memory Foam. These may be more than just name changes, possibly reflecting changes to the formulations or structures of these components.
One material added to the collection, but only in one or a few models, is BeautyCloud Memory Foam, which is also found in the Ultra Plush model of the Beautyrest Memory Foam Plus collection. It is described as an "extra plush memory foam."
As to the cover, the Evenloft® Design of unquilted stretch knit cotton-polyester fabric was only on certain models in the 2014 collection. But in the 2015 edition, it is the standard cover fabric. Also, the side panels of 2014 had the AirCool Mesh Border Fabric, part of the AirCool Design, a feature not mentioned in descriptions of the 2015 collection nor apparent in photos.
The same available comfort levels are listed by Simmons Beautyrest for both 2014 and 2015. However, other comfort levels emerge in retailers' listings, evidence of customization.
The 2015 warranty for Beautyrest Recharge Hybrid mattresses follows the shift in warranty coverage by Simmons, Serta and several other major mattress manufacturers. Instead of a 25-year limited warranty with an initial non-prorated period followed by prorated coverage, it is now for 10 years, all non-prorated.
Other than changes described above, general descriptions of Beautyrest Recharge Hybrid mattresses are the same for 2015 as for 2014. Since models names are generally selected by retailers or retail groups, changes in the names of models offered by a retailer may signal the introduction of the new collection in its stores.
