What Is a Power Recliner?

While manual recliners are a timeless living room staple, the hand-operated mechanisms – which require using force to pull up and down on a lever – are not always the most practical solutions, especially for those with physical limitations.

Designed to offer the same comfort technologies as the traditional recliner, with none of the physical exertion needed to operate it, power recliners make it effortless to sit back and relax – at exactly the position and angle you prefer – all at the touch of a button.

Operated by automated motors via either a battery pack or an electrical cord, modern power recliners feature three buttons built into the side of the armrest: one for the recliner’s back, one for the recliner’s footrest and one for the recliner’s headrest.

Ergonomic Designs

Many modern power recliners are also often recommended for ergonomic neck and back positions, and feature lay-flat reclining with full-extension footrests – for even weight distribution and orthopedic support.

Built-In USB Ports

Perhaps we can all agree that there are few things more annoying than this scenario: you’ve finally found and settled into your most comfortable position, curled and snuggled up on your favorite living room recliner, and just when you’ve entered into serious relaxation mode, you realize you’ve left your phone or device on the table across the room. (Even worse: you have your phone or device with you, but it’s at low battery – and the nearest outlet or port for charging is on the wall – ten feet away.)

While it is definitely one of those trivial situations that makes you laugh looking back at it, when you’re actually in the moment, it can be pretty frustrating (having to get up and leave your ‘comfy place’ is the last thing you want to do!) – and this is exactly the line of thinking behind one of the most convenient features of modern power recliners: the built-in USB port.

Designed to make modern lounging luxurious and convenient, today’s power recliners bring both ergonomic comfort and built-in smart features, allowing you to recharge your batteries – both literally and figuratively!
