Illuminating: Gaming chairs with LED lighting at a glance

Either you’ve landed here because you’re looking for a gaming chair that integrates great with your existing LED setup, or you just think glowing accents are cool. Anyway, you’re looking for a gaming chair with LED lighting? We’ll introduce you to a few exceptional models that will make your gaming experience something special and allow you to sit ergonomically. This way, you can master even long gaming sessions with flying colors, without having back pain.

LED lighting in focus

Of course, as with so many things in life, by the way, opinions differ when it comes to a gaming chair with LED lighting. What one person rates as superfluous, the other rates as an absolute must-have. In our opinion, anything that promotes an immersive gaming experience is already good. So why do without it? Lighting in general always contributes to the atmosphere and the perceived mood. Used correctly, colorful light sources in particular influence your mood. That is, as a rule, they act as a mood enhancer. In addition, LED elements have several advantages over many other light sources at once, which we definitely do not want to deprive you of:

  1. LEDs are not only very robust, but also extremely durable. As a rule, 50,000 operating hours and more are no problem.
  2. Unlike other illuminants, such as incandescent lamps, LEDs are characterized by the fact that they do not become particularly warm.
  3. One of the greatest advantages, however, is that LEDs, despite their immense luminosity, consume about 80% less electricity than other light sources.
  4. In addition, LEDs can be used to achieve many color effects. In the end, this can cover the entire RGB spectrum.

LED have a whole range of other advantages more. However, it is through those that we have mentioned, more or less only become possible to equip gaming chairs with this technology.

Reasons for a gaming chair

The most obvious reason for a gaming chair is, of course, because it looks cool Yes, of course. That’s the opinion we hold, after all. But there’s so much more to a gaming chair than just the exterior design of a racing seat. They are designed to support your back in the best possible way, even during exuberant gaming sessions.

For example, if you sit on a normal chair for a long time, you will eventually experience back pain, possibly accompanied by headaches or numbness in your fingers. We don’t want to paint the devil on the wall, but in the worst case scenario, this can lead to permanent damage to your health.

A real gaming chair features an ergonomic shape that supports your lumbar vertebrae in particular, but also other areas of your body.

But enough of the background knowledge, here are our research results for gaming chairs with LED lighting.

Vertagear VG-PL4500

A real highlight on our list is the Vertagear PL4500 (MSRP $489.99), which can be upgraded to a gaming chair with LED lighting with the RGB/LED upgrade kit. However, this is not just simple LED strips or lighting elements. No, the upgrade kit not only holds plenty of presets, it can also be highly customized and programmed. This process is completely wireless. Various interactive modes contribute to an immersive gaming experience. For example, when your character’s life meter drops, the gaming chair appropriately glows from green to orange to red. But the upgrade kit also has something to offer for acoustic fans. Audio Visual Sync makes the chair glow to the beat of the music. The LED lighting can be expanded with the RGB LED Bottom Kit incl. projector.

Backforce One Plus

The Backforce One Plus (MSRP €629.00) is not a candidate that can convince with exuberant lighting effects in this sense. Nevertheless, the gaming chair has a small but nice gimmick, which other candidates in this list do not have. At the height of the neck area on the back of the backrest, the manufacturer has integrated a kind of glowing brooch, the Gamer Pulse LED. This can be customized in the way by downloading a template from Backforce for editing. This way, you can make a statement with your own logo or a symbol of your choice. The Gamer Pulse LED can be operated like a button. There are two modes available. Either the pin lights up continuously or flashes every 5 seconds. If you can’t decide on a design, you also have the option of ordering several Gamer Pulse LED. These can be changed very easily. Beyond that, the Backforce One Plus convinces all along the line.

Gaming chairs with LED lighting: variety not yet exhausted

Gaming chairs with LED lighting have great potential to emphasize an immersive gaming experience. However, in practice, this is only exploited by a few manufacturers. Many models follow the same principle, while some stand out from the crowd. We are curious to see what else will land on the market in the near future. We will definitely keep our eyes and ears open.
