Let’s take a closer look at our favorites in this Elecwish gaming chair review.

Overview of the Elecwish Gaming Chair Line

Ergonomic Computer Gaming Office Chair, Large Size PU Leather High Back Racing Widen Thicken Seat Retractable Footrest Lumbar Support Black

Elecwish specializes in “racing gaming chairs.” This style is designed to mimic the look and feel of the bucket seats found in high-performance racing cars.

Almost every Elecwish gaming chair follows this pattern — bucket seats, high throne backs, winged armrests, and bright, vivid color schemes.

Some of these chairs are so visually appealing that it is hard to decide what is more fun, looking at them or sitting in them.

Overall, most gaming chairs by Elecwish fall into that general design, with a tweak or upgrade here and there.

This also means that most of the following Pros and Cons are common across the entire product line:

Pros

  • Ergonomically-designed to provide maximum comfort.
  • Accommodating for most body types, with a maximum weight capacity of 330 pounds.
  • The high back provides full support all the way up to your head and neck.
  • Most models come with neck/head cushions and lumbar supports.
  • Most Elecwish gaming chair models include a built-in footrest that retracts back under the seat when not in use.
  • 360-degree swivel features and tilt-lock functions allow you to find whatever position is most comfortable for you.
  • PU faux leather covering provides a premium appearance.
  • Material is scratch-proof, stain-resistant, and does not absorb spills.
  • Vibrant, sporty color schemes.
  • Great price points make every gaming chair on this list a great value.

Cons

  • Elecwish games chairs do NOT come pre-assembled. You have to put them together upon delivery.
  • Even though they are rated for high maximum weight capacities, Elecwish chairs are not very heavy and can feel a bit flimsy.
  • With intense use, the faux leather covering will show obvious signs of wear.
  • Some people found the seat cushion to be uncomfortably thin or hard.

5 Best Elecwish Gaming Chairs

Now let’s take a closer look at some of the most popular Elecwish gaming chairs.

Elecwish Video Gaming/Racing Chair

ELECWISH Racing Video Gaming Chair High Back Large Size Ergonomic Adjustable Swivel Reclining Executive Computer Chair with Headrest and Lumbar Support PU Leather Executive Office Chair Green

Our First Impression

Like all Elecwish gaming chairs, this model looks premium. The polished finish of the faux leather, the color-coordinated castors, and the wheelbase combine with the racing style to deliver a striking appearance.

Elecwish went the extra mile (inch?) by giving this gaming chair a 4-inch seat cushion instead of the 3-inch padding found on other manufacturers’ products. It really does make a difference you can feel.

At a maximum tilt of 150 degrees, this entry-level gaming chair does not recline as far back as other models. Elecwish recommends a 90-degree angle when reading, a 100-degree angle for gaming, 120-degrees for reading, and the full 150-degrees when resting or napping.

Design

  • Uniquely-cut backrest wings.
  • Ergonomic high-back design.
  • Wide, accommodating seat appropriate for all body types.
  • Stable 5-point wheelbase.
  • Fixed armrests recline with the back.
  • Wide rubber casters that afford smooth, quiet maneuvering over all surfaces.

Features

  • Fully-adjustable and removable neck and lumbar support cushions.
  • Extendable and retractable footrest for added comfort while reclining.
  • Extra-thick 4-inch padded seat.
  • Gas piston allows for 3-inch height adjustment.
  • Padded armrests.

Specifications

  • Chair weight: 53 pounds
  • Seat area: 22″ L by 22” W
  • Seat height: Adjustable, 18 inches to 21 inches
  • Position adjustments: 90-150-degree tilt angles and 360-degree swivel
  • Warranty: 1 year

Our Verdict:

This model is one of the best-looking and versatile gaming chairs we have seen, especially at such an affordable price. This is an excellent option for players buying their first gaming chair. If you’re looking for cheaper alternative to the racing style Nokaxus, this is a good choice.

Other Customer Reviews:

84% of customers gave this model either 4 or 5 stars. Most of the positive comments complimented how accommodating this budget chair is for larger or heavier people. The most often-heard complaint comes from people who damaged the footrest when they put too much weight on it.

Elecwish Swivel Gaming Recliner Chair

ELECWISH Racing Video Gaming Chair High Back Ergonomic Adjustable Swivel Reclining Executive Computer Chair with Headrest and Lumbar Support PU Leather Executive Office Chair, Purple

This is the most basic, budget-friendly gaming chair Elecwish offers, and you get quite a lot of style for your money. Even though this is their least-expensive model, you do not get the impression that this is in any way a “cheap” purchase.

Like other models, the chair’s surface is covered with soft faux leather, which is a significant plus. Unlike cloth, PU leather is easy to clean and stain-resistant, including the occasional spilled Red Bull or Mountain Dew.

Design

  • Ergonomic high-back design
  • Wide seating surface accommodating to most body types
  • Clean, sleek appearance

Features:

  • Fully-adjustable and removable neck and lumbar support cushions.
  • Extra-thick 4-inch padded seat.
  • Padded armrests.

Specifications:

  • Seat area: 23″ L by 19” W
  • Seat height: 22 inches
  • Position adjustments: 90-150-degree tilt angles and 360-degree swivel
  • Warranty: 1 year
ELECWISH Racing Video Gaming Chair High Back Ergonomic Adjustable Swivel Reclining Executive Computer Chair with Headrest and Lumbar Support PU Leather Executive Office Chair, Purple
  • ①【ERONOMIC DESIGN】: Ergonomic office game chair design with free lumbar support, headrest pillow wider and thicker adjustable armrests with an ergonomic shape, larger-size seat cushion, sturdy retractable footrest.

  • ②【GOOD QUALITY MATERIAL】:Gaming chair pc has high-quality PU leather and thicker spong on front and back, high resilience and permeability padding feels great,easy to clean.

Our Verdict:

The Elecwish Swivel Gaming Recliner chair is our favorite budget gaming chair in the line-up. Although we would not say it conforms to the racing style seen in other models, it is still very distinctive in appearance. The cushions and the padding make it very comfortable, even after long gaming sessions.

Using an ottoman instead of a footrest does take some getting used to, but we like the stability of the pedestal base.

Note: This appears to be a newer entry, so there are no available online customer reviews.

Elecwish Computer Gaming Chair, Large Size

ELECWISH Racing Video Gaming Chair High Back Large Size Ergonomic Adjustable Swivel Reclining Executive Computer Chair with Headrest and Lumbar Support PU Leather Executive Office Chair

Our First Impression

This intermediate-range model is exceptionally comfortable, and the PU leather gives it a luxury appearance right out of the box.

Although it sports the expected racing design, this particular Elecwish gaming chair is comparatively toned-down. This means it is also appropriate in a professional setting, especially when ordered in the basic Black option. It is available in 9 other vibrant colors.

This model includes the footrest and reclines to 170 degrees, which makes for an inviting napping destination.

Design

  • Ergonomic high-back design.
  • Wide, accommodating seat appropriate for all body types.
  • 5 point wheelbase, equipped with silent plastic casters.
  • Fixed armrests recline with the back.

  • ②【【GOOD QUALITY MATERIAL】:Gaming chair pc has high-quality PU leather and thicker spong on front and back, high resilience and permeability padding feels great,easy to clean.

Our Verdict:

We like the Elecwish Computer Gaming Chair, although the footrest, which ends at mid-calf, takes a little getting used to. We found the chair comfortable and definitely nap-worthy.

Other Customer Reviews:

74% of customers give this chair either 4 or 5-star reviews. The most common, although still rare, issue seems to be a malfunctioning tilt mechanism that takes the reclining position all the way back to 170 degrees.

ELECWISH Massage Computer Gaming Chair

ELECWISH Ergonomic Computer Gaming Chair, PU Leather High Back Office Racing Chairs with Widen Thicken Seat and Retractable Footrest and Lumbar Support, Large, Blue

Our First Impression

This is one of the more richly-appointed Elecwish gaming chairs. It less resembles the seat of a race car than it does the pilot’s seat in the cockpit of a fighter jet. The look is bold and exciting, without eschewing comfort or versatility.

This gaming chair introduces a surprising feature — a USB-powered vibrating lumbar massage cushion. This is the kind of top-shelf perk typically found in chairs that are far more expensive.

Note: This model has a maximum weight capacity of 300 pounds, significantly lower than other Elecwish gaming chairs.

Design

Other Customer Reviews:

72% of customers gave this model 4 or 5 stars. The most-recurring issue involved how the curved bucket seat pinched or dug into the thighs of larger users.

Elecwish Recliner Massage Gaming Lounge Sofa

ELECWISH Single Ergonomic Lounge Sofa Massage Gaming Recliner Chair with Footrest Racing Style Modern PU Leather Reclining Home Theater Seat for Living & Gaming Room (Blue)

Our First Impression:

For our top Elecwish gaming chair, we went in a slightly different direction by choosing an actual gaming recliner. We liked how it had a roomier feel that allowed us to stretch out and relax just a little bit more than the other models.

Wider than the racing-style gaming chairs, the Elecwish gaming sofa has a steadier base that did not move as much while we played. Thanks to the massage feature, it was way-too-easy to stay in this recliner for hours at a time.

  • Ergonomically and orthopedically designed.
  • Faux leather covering.
  • Breathable high-density foam cushioning.
  • Steel and hardwood frame

It’s roomy without being bulky, it’s sturdy without being stodgy, and it’s comforting without being boring.

Gaming Chair Buying Guide

ELECWISH Gaming Chair Ergonomic High Back Racing Style with Adjustable Armrest and Retractible Footrest PU Leather Back Recliner Swivel Rocker Office Chair(2020) Camouflage Gray

The most important thing to look for when buying the right gaming chair is COMFORT. If the chair does not feel good when you relax in it, then nothing else matters. In our experience, there are four main things to look for when purchasing a gaming chair online:

Padding

You want your gaming chair to be soft and supportive, and that starts with the cushioning. If there isn’t enough, the chair will be hard and uncomfortable. If there is too much, you’ll sink in.

Quality gaming chairs should have a minimum of three inches of high-density, breathable foam but no more than a maximum of four-and-a-half inches.

Air Flow

There is nothing worse than getting out of your chair after a nap or long gaming session and finding that your back and legs are drenched in sweat. That’s what happens if there isn’t airflow between your body and the chair.

Some manufacturers try to solve the problem by building gaming chairs with mesh backs. And while that improves ventilation, it creates another problem because mesh gaming chairs do not provide adequate support for your back.

The best gaming chair manufacturers address the airflow issue in two ways:

First, they build chairs with strategic cutouts in the backrest that increase ventilation without reducing the level of back support.

Second, they avoid using materials that aren’t breathable, such as rubber or vinyl. High-quality gaming chairs use premium coverings made out of leather, either natural or synthetic. These are both breathable and hypoallergenic, and this “skin-friendly” approach keeps you cool, dry, and comfortable.

Back Support

Because you spend so much time in it, you need a gaming chair that supports your back and promotes good posture. Typically, this is accomplished with strategically-placed lumbar support, either with padding or adjustable cushions. This lumbar support eases the pain and soreness associated with sitting in one place for long periods.

Besides lumbar support, top gaming chairs may also have some vibrating feature that massages your back, loosening tight muscles and reducing soreness and pain.

Adjustability

When it comes to a comfortable gaming chair, one size does not fit all. You want to look for a chair that can be made to fit YOU.

For example, you should be able to adjust the seating height of your gaming chair to match YOUR height. Likewise, the backrest angle should be changeable based on your comfort level and your activity — gaming, working, reading, relaxing, etc.

If you insist on these features, the only thing left is to find a good-looking game chair that fits your sense of style, and then you will be good to go and ready to play.
