Do power recliners work without power?

Answered by Willie Powers

Power recliners do not work without power. As the name suggests, power recliners require an electric power source in order to operate. This is because the reclining mechanism and other features of the chair, such as the massage function or heating element, are powered by electricity.

At La-Z-Boy, our power recliners can be plugged into a nearby wall socket to provide the necessary power. This is the most common and convenient way to use the chair, as it allows for continuous operation without the need to worry about battery life.

However, for those who prefer a cordless option or have limited access to power outlets, La-Z-Boy also offers power recliners with a rechargeable battery option. These batteries are hidden underneath the chair and can be charged when the chair is not in use.

The rechargeable battery option provides the flexibility to place the power recliner anywhere in the room without being restricted by the proximity to a power outlet. This can be particularly useful if you want to position the chair in a certain spot for optimal relaxation or if you frequently rearrange your living space.

It’s important to note that the battery life will vary depending on usage and the specific model of the power recliner. Some chairs may provide several hours of use on a single charge, while others may last for days or even weeks. It’s always a good idea to check the specifications of the chair or consult with the retailer to determine the expected battery life.

Power recliners require an electric power source to function. They can be plugged into a wall socket or powered by a rechargeable battery. The choice between these options depends on personal preference and the availability of power outlets in your living space.
