Weekend with a wet saw shop vac chiseling cement laying conduit and pouring some hydraulic cement sounds fun to me.

you know guys, (just to make myself more humiliated), I just thought since you can remote the garage door etc, there might be some kind of product that would work for this earth shattering issue, lol.
Sorry Kim, the link was actually directed at the other fellas here...it was certainly not intended to make you feel bad. And as mentioned the only stupid question is the one you never ask and don't get answered.

You could using something like these under the carpet:
http://www.electriduct.com/Light-Duty-Cord-Covers.html

I may get pounced on for suggesting the less-than-optimal route. And those guards might not work for you because you don't want a hump in or on your carpet. BTW if you put it under the carpet in a guard expect the carpet that runs above it to wear much more rapidly than the rest.

The best solution would be to peel back the carpet and cut a channel into the concrete to run a power line in and then install a receptacle recessed in the floor, but it would be expensive if you don't do it yourself.

That looks like a good option but I would not put it under a carpet just get a color that matches the carpet or looks good.

We use something similar at work.
Conference table sitting in the middle of the room, power and LAN in the walls, and no one likes to saw cut the floor.

wireless electric outlet question


Despite the snarky comments of others, and even though the poor guy didn't get his answer, if anybody else has a similar question re. how to deal with power recliners when you have limited outlets, this is what I found:
"Flexsteel and Palliser now sell cordless battery units—typically a $299 option—to operate any of the power recliners that are in their lines. Having a battery unit allows you to place your power recliner anywhere in your home; it doesn’t have to be near an outlet. The rechargeable power packs work for 200–300 cycles of opening and closing, which means that they’ll work for up to 50 days based on average use before you need to recharge the power pack. The power pack beeps, like a cordless phone does, when it has to be plugged into an outlet to recharge. This is useful, so you can avoid getting stuck in your chair by a dead battery."

Let me know if you find something that is safe, using Tesla's principals. You could in theory send electricity through the air, in the same way that lightning is conducted, but I do not think that it is safe.

Really it is best that you install a floor outlet, if that room is over a crawlspace or basement, or use one of the flat ribbon methods, for setting up a electrical outlet in that area.

Since this post is almost 2 years old, I hope the OP found a solution or bought a manual chair.

or maybe just pushed the chair back and forth every time it needed to be adjusted?

I got !!! My electric toothbrush is charged by non-contact induction. The receiving coil can only be a few millimeters from the dock station coil, and the current transmitted is only milli-amps, but works like a charm. (The obvious reason they do this is it allows the toothbrush to remain totally sealed.)

At least not that hard if it is you doin' it and not me
Just curious; is that a valid option?

Anyone who needed power recliners 2 years ago is probably dead by now.

Which wireless gadget are you refering too ?
And how will it be used ?
Your question is so general, no one can answer it acuratily.

Don't let the yahoos on this site scare you away. Nobody is born knowledgeable of electricity; it's not impossible my wife (a teacher) might ask a question such as yours. Besides, there ARE wireless cell phone chargers. I still haven't figured out how they work.
