Frequently Asked Questions about ergonomic chair
- Does this desk use a regular 120 volt outlet?
Yes. Our standing desk is compatible with standard 120 volts - 240 volts outlets. Both currents are automatically converted by the desk. US orders are installed with the standard two-prong plug. For international orders, we convert the plug to the type used by the destination country.
- I see that there is a “black box” to be installed on the underside (aside from the control panel), with power and data connection. Is this like a power strip and data plug-in?
Yes, this is the control box. It must be attached under the standing desk to use the SmartKeypad. It is connected with the SmartKeypad to control the height of the desk, and with the power source to tell the electric motor(s) when to move up and down.

Custom reviews of Autonomous standing desk
I bought this desk in April 2016 and have really enjoyed using it from day one. The build quality is excellent, and the legs are sturdy with only a slight side-to-side wobble when the desk is up past 42 inches high. But the wobble goes virtually unnoticed. Electronically I've never had a problem with it other than one time when I accidentally kicked the plug as it was raising. After plugging it back in I saw an error code which, after some googling, I cured by reseting the system on it by lowering it all the way down and reprogramming the memory buttons. No biggie. I found that the adhesive wire clips designed to stick to the underside of the desk were useless in that the adhesive itself stuck permanently to the desk, but actually did NOT stick to the clip itself! A.AI needs to replace those with something better (they were 3M brand, I believe). I solved the problem by building a wooden channel at the back end of the underside of the desk to hide the nest of cables. The desk is very comfortable to use two computers on. As you can see I added a stand for my monitor, which gets up up to the right height for typing on the laptop in front of it. Having this desk inspired me to build the cabinets around it, a project that took me a good six months to complete but, as you can see, was well worth it!
My husband likes the desk. It gives him the flexibility he needs and makes doing his job easier and more comfortable. The desk is quite steady even in the standing position. He also installed cable management, and power strip underneath the desk. The only thing is the monitor slightly shakes while typing in standing position because of the screen size and the attached arm. So far we are happy with the purchase.
This is Taylor from Geniuslink who was chatting with you on Twitter. Our founders recently bought desks for our entire team. We're based out of Seattle and have a couple remote employees as well. One of our guys is an amateur photographer and tried getting creative with the pics from our Seattle HQ. Our remote guys sent in some pics too. I'll include those as well but probably just for your entertainment value :). I bet you can guess which pic belongs to one of our developers.

We recently purchased 4 Autonomous Desks for our New office Skybox Communications. We are in IT Company in Orlando FL and we absolutely love them! Sitting for 8 hours a day can be extremely straining on your back, we love being able to come back from lunch and instead of sitting back down we can stand for awhile to avoid the "After lunch nap / fatigue" we so desperately want. Obviously besides the physical benefits, the desk is a perfect size to accommodate a double monitor, laptop and hard desk phone. On top of still having enough room for note taking. (I can say that it would be nice to have a small drawer for storage.) The look is modern and sleek and the ability to configure 4 preset "heights" is awesome! It makes little to no noise when transitioning. Overall an awesome investment! We are very pleased with them.
Just got a new standing desk. Autonomous.ai (not sponsored!). Love it.
We’ve seen a bunch of standing desk options out there. There are some very cool ones, some high tech ones, some lame ones but they all have one thing in common. They cost more than I want to spend on a small desk with no drawers. The SmartDesk from Autonomous is different. It's the most affordable height adjustable standing desk in the market. There are others in this price range but they don’t come with an integrated wireless charging pad, bluetooth speaker, multi-port USB charger and headphone/bag hooks. They also don’t have the instant and strong but quiet motor that this one does to get you standing up quickly and quietly. This is definitely one of the best we’ve seen. And heck, if it’s good enough for the folks at Wework, it’s good enough for us.
