    Default Battery Powered Recliners (Motion Furniture)

    Lots of folks are buying power recliner units and many like the battery feature as they don't have to plug-into the wall with a cord. The Batteries work well, allowing appx 150 cycles before needing a recharge so that means about once a month for most people.

    However - some of the newer motion pieces are coming with a USB port built into the activation switch, so you can charge your phone, iPad, etc from your chair or sofa. Be aware that USB ports are "Always On", and will drain that rechargeable battery very quickly, you may have to re-charge every day or two.

    My advice is if you see that USB port on your piece you want to buy - skip the extra-cost battery and go straight to a plug-in unit. Also, just like you would with a computer or Flat Panel TV, put an inexpensive surge protector on your power motion furniture. They don't cost much and can save the switch, rectifier, and transformer in the event of a power surge.

    Hello, I just joined today and already have learned so much! Thanks for that info about batteries and USB ports.
    Do all plug in power recliners have the cord coming from half way up the back?
    I’m seriously considering the H&M ‘Your Way’ because I need a wider seat width for my service dog who is always beside me. I’d also like a chair which isn’t as bulky as some of the shorter back ones but don’t like that cord on a chair whose back is seen first when entering the room.
    Thank you very much for your service.

    Cords on all power recliners are tucked down low, if you see one halfway up the back its just there for shipping and so its not mangled in transit.
