Your customers deserve recliner comfort with flexibility

Battery-powered recliners provide the freedom of placing a recliner exactly where it is needed, with no messy cables and no need for a nearby wall outlet. Aesthetically they look better too, so why aren’t we seeing more of them? Batteries. That is why!

The LINAK battery BA002 provides a clean design, where you do not have to rely on a permanently fixed power cable.

As you probably know, manufacturing or selling a battery-powered solution has never been quite that simple: the main issue is that traditional batteries deep discharge while in storage, at the store - and even in a customer's home.

Feel let down?

As a manufacturer you have almost certainly had batteries that have discharged before they were even installed. Discharged batteries in retail stores make sales harder and delivering a chair to customers with a discharged battery does not help your brand either. Just imagine being greeted by a discharged battery in your recliner when you reopen your summerhouse in spring - a huge disappointment. But those days are gone.

Extend your comfort zone

At LINAK® we take comfort seriously and have worked hard to come up with a solution that puts an end to these situations. Our solution? The new BA002: a battery that can be relied on to perform when it matters.

Hold that charge

The main challenge was to create a battery that could be relied on to hold its charge from assembly to showroom to consumer’s home. With its innovative deep sleep mode, the BA002 battery prevents discharge during storage, shipping, or extended downtime. When a battery leaves LINAK we put it into deep sleep mode, which means that its battery life can be trusted to hold the charge you need, for a long time after leaving our factory.

No more recharging

With the new BA002 it is now possible for you to store batteries or chairs without the need for regular charging. This means you can confidently use batteries directly from storage for testing, assembly and shipping; and in the retail stores, chairs can be kept in stock without the risk of selling a unit with a discharged battery. Ultimately, consumers get a chair they can use right away - one that holds its charge through longer periods of downtime - win, win.

Smart features for longer life

Of course every battery will eventually need a recharge, and to make this as simple as possible, the BA002 has an audible battery status which indicates when a recharge is required. The chair can also be used during recharging. When a battery is almost discharged, it only lets the chair go to sitting position - preventing consumers from entering a lying position from which they cannot rise.
To conserve battery charge, the wireless Bluetooth® control also enters sleep mode in quiet periods and switches off quickly after use.

Charging in even more ways

For the charging itself, we have also developed a new magnetic charging point: the power cable simply snaps into place on the charging point to connect the chair to power. Even if someone does trip on the cable, it simply pulls off, preventing damage to the system.

Inspiration for aesthetic design

For chair designers, the BA002 is simple to integrate and blends seamlessly with any design as it can be integrated into the frame. Our innovative concept helps mitigate consequences in the unlikely case of cell failure.

It is now possible to create powered recliners with confidence - and the removal of a permanently attached power cable adds an aesthetic touch, which both retailers and consumers will appreciate. Extend your comfort zone with LINAK.
