I want to purchase power recliners for a new media room (house is still under construction, closing set for end of October).

I have been told by She Who Must Be Obeyed that running a power cord from the wall is not an option, and could not get the builder to install an outlet in the concrete slab floor.

So, the Palliser battery packs seem a decent compromise, but I was wondering if any other mfr offers a similar accessory, or if the Palliser connectors could be used with other brands of furniture?

Thanks in advance for any insight you might lend me!

Yes, Palliser is the only company that offers the batter packs at this time. I'm sure something could be rigged up to use their batter packs with other power recline chairs. Some manufacturers that use a similar or the same power supply won't need any "converting." Others would need to be "rigged".

Nope! Stickley Furniture also offers battery pack options for some of their recliners as well as their selectional program where you have the option to customize anything. It is a bit more expensive than Palliser, but not more than drilling through the concrete floor! Good luck to you! http://www.critellifurniture.com/sofas/400-series-sofa.php

My Berklines have the battery packs, but frankly I don't use them. I have the recliners plugged into the UPS I use for the projector.

You are most likely talking about the backup power that is available in the standard power supplies using 9V batteries. This is on most Berkline chairs, but is only to be used when the power goes out. You'll probably only be able to get one to two cylcles from the 9 volt batteries. They are there just to get the chair down out of the recline position if the power goes out. What vorlon666 is talking about is Palliser's rechargable battery packs (similar to a cordless drill) that they have come out with recently. You get about 40 cycles per charge (if I remember correctly) out of the battery backs. It's a nice option if chairs are going into the middle of a room where no power is available.

Ashley furniture also offers a battery pack with their electric recliners. We did not put in the batteries, due to if the power does go out in one of the rare occurrences that ever does happen in our area, we would just leave the foot rests up until it comes back up.
