The LEAGOO Automatic Executive Reclining Office Chair has the trappings of a luxurious product at a relatively reasonable price. The materials are also relatively high quality, as are the fit and finish. Overall, it’s a nice value and should suit most needs when it comes to this type of chair.
It’s an easy seven step build, with only three major steps (wheels, back and seat, and arms), but definitely recommended for two people because of the relative weight and bulk of the pieces. The biggest difficulty we had with assembly was lining up the back with the seat, but otherwise, it was a breeze to follow the instructions and use the included Allen key and bolts to make everything secure.
The 6x20mm x 10PCS bolts referenced in the manual were not included. Instead, they’re replaced by 12 6x25mm bolts. Similarly, although the manual states there’s a charge indicator light, I was unable to find one (Edit: I was told by support that the indicator is under the chair, so it’s not easy to see.). It does, however, beep when you try to power recline the chair and the battery is at 10% or lower of its capacity.
Even without a dedicated lumbar support or headrest, it’s well-cushioned and quite supportive when used as an upright office chair. When reclined or reclining, it’s also extremely comfortable, although, without a desktop attachment, you’re limited to using a phone or tablet, reading a book, or using a gamepad rather than working at your normal desktop with a keyboard and mouse. A laptop might be doable when reclined, but that depends on what type of work you’re doing and how well it can balance on your body or lapdesk. The armrests are well-positioned and padded, with good support.
The only real stopper for this looking like an even higher-end chair is that some of the metal framework is exposed. Otherwise, the black leather and other materials are fairly luxurious and the reclining buttons are easily accessible.
In terms of convenience features, there’s a USB-A port by the reclining buttons to charge your devices from the chair’s generous 1800mAh battery. Charging the chair itself is done from an included and removable standard rounded three-prong plug.
Besides the power reclining feature where the chair goes almost completely flat, there’s a manual control that raises and lowers the chair’s height. Both functions work well and are quick to adjust, although it would have been nice to have independent control of the back and footrest. As designed, both move in unison.
Do I like the LEAGOO Automatic Executive Reclining Office Chair? Absolutely. I find it’s a great combination of cushion and support and the power reclining is a nice touch. Pricing-wise, it’s not out of line with other premium office chairs, including those without any powered features.
