La-Z-boy Introduces Rechargeable Batteries for Power Recliners

HIGH POINT, N.C., (April, 14, 2016) – People who want the luxury of a power recliner but don’t like the look of the power cord, or have challenges placing furniture near a power outlet, now have a solution. La-Z-boy is pleased to unveil its newest technological advancement, a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack. This new innovation, which is being introduced at the High Point Furniture Market, has the ability to power your recliner for approximately one week before needing to be recharged. It provides a wireless power option that allows for carefree operation and the flexibility to place power reclining furniture anywhere in a room, without the need to be plugged into a wall outlet.

“La-Z-boy continues to lead the way in innovation, exploring ways to further enhance our products so consumers can Live Life Comfortably,” said Paula Hoyas, Vice President Merchandising for La-Z-boy. “We know our customers love the power options we offer, and now, they can have them free from the constraints of the ‘corded’ power supply.”

The lithium-ion battery pack has a power output control that is unique to La-Z-boy. The unit will cease power to the reclining furniture if an obstruction is encountered that prevents the reclining mechanism from moving, thereby preventing damage to the reclining mechanism.

The rechargeable battery pack is about the size of a hand, and is UL recognized.

All of the latest La-Z-boy selections will be on display April 16 - 20 at the La-Z-boy showroom located in Space 103 of the Furniture Plaza Building in High Point, North Carolina. The furniture will be available soon at La-Z-boy Furniture Galleries®, La-Z-boy Comfort Studios® and anywhere genuine La-Z-boy furniture is sold. More information is available at
