Work, Exercise and Charge Your Laptop with the Ampera Desk Bike

In our fast-paced modern world, the struggle to balance work and exercise is a common one. The demands of the office often override the need for physical activity, leaving many of us desk-bound and inactive for long stretches of time. But what if you could merge productivity with fitness? Meet the Ampera desk bike from LifeSpan, an innovative solution that combines a stationary bike with a standing desk, allowing you to exercise and keep your laptop powered up while you work.

The Ampera is a groundbreaking piece of office equipment that has already surpassed its Kickstarter funding goal and is set to start shipping next month. This unique contraption merges the health benefits of an electric stand-up desk with the physical exertion of cycling, allowing you to maintain your productivity levels while also keeping your body active.

The design of the Ampera desk bike is both functional and ergonomic. It features an adjustable seat that can be modified to suit your comfort needs via a pneumatic lever. Once you’re comfortably seated, you can start pedaling. As you do so, the bike transforms your kinetic energy into usable power. A moderate pedaling speed of 60 rpm generates approximately 65 watts per hour, which is sufficient to charge your laptop or other devices.

The Ampera desk bike is equipped with a USB-C port integrated into its base and a wireless charging pad located just beneath the seat. This dual-charging feature means that you can power up two devices simultaneously while you exercise. The bike also includes an RGB ring light around the pedal housing that can be adjusted through an app to display 12 different color options, adding a touch of personalization to your workday.

The accompanying app also allows you to track your calorie burn, providing an additional incentive to keep pedaling. According to LifeSpan, a person weighing 155 pounds and pedaling at an average speed of 12.5 mph could expect to burn between 500-600 calories per hour. This is a substantial calorie burn, enough to offset the occasional indulgent lunch.

The Ampera desk bike is an excellent example of how to choose the best standing desk. It combines the functionality of an electric height adjustable standing desk with the health benefits of an exercise bike, providing a comprehensive solution for those looking to integrate fitness into their workday. It’s not just about choosing the best sit-stand desk, but about finding a solution that allows you to maintain your health and productivity simultaneously.

In conclusion, the Ampera desk bike by LifeSpan is revolutionizing the way we approach office health. It’s not just a standing desk or an exercise bike; it’s a fusion of both, designed to keep you active and productive throughout your workday. So while you’re tackling those endless emails, remember that with the Ampera, you’re also taking care of your physical well-being and keeping your devices charged. It’s a win-win situation for modern-day professionals.

Great service and really quick shipping. It is great to know that you are getting quality parts from a Scandinavian manufacturer with your standing desk purchase rather than the cheap knock off stuff you get from other major brands. Reasonably priced for the quality too!

Guy was very accommodating with meeting him at a time that suited me. He assembled the desk prior to me collecting so I only had to carry it inside with help (it's pretty heavy). The desk is great, the storage racks underneath with the 6 x built in powerpoints was worth the extra money. I have a functioning & tidy workplace.
Guy was brilliant, I highly recommend.

Have now purchased 2 stand up office desks off Guy, benchmark sales service from him, all via email, so easy; from quote to plug in, only matched by the strong quality of these machines, solid and stable. If only everything in life was this easy and reliable.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Great service from Guy and the team at Ergomotion! Helped with all my queries and was able to source a standing desk part for me when many others weren't able! Highly recommend!

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
