DUALSHOCK 3 Charging Station
9.5 out of 10
Pros: can't over charge, stylish, from official name brand, compact
Cons: no faceplates allowed
Is worth preordering
It will take this thing at max 150 minutes to charge 2 controllers that is completely emptied of power and will stop charging once they are full. So you can't over charge them. It adds a stylish flair to them, but if you need to use the usb slot. Then simply take out the attachment. This product is made by sony and it is very compact. Maybe a little too compact because you can't fit a controller with a faceplate on it, but you can if it just has a decal skin. Not getting this is like not getting the official charger to your rechargeable batteries.

Best quality Charging Station out there
This charging station works better then the Energizer charging Station. I know because I tried them both.
This Sony Charging Station charges my ps3 remote really fast and I don’t have to worry about taking the remotes off the dock when done because it automatically turns off each remote when it has been fully charged.
I leave the Mini USB Attachment on the remote as you don’t even notice it’s there and it is really easy to put the remote on the charging dock, just put the remote on the slot, push down and it’s charging you will always get it right the first time. You could feel that this charging dock is sturdy.
Best charger out.
Just Plain Amazing!
I decided to buy this and its just completely amazing. Cool sleek design fits and looks great anywhere. Not to even mention the super fast charge time. Are you worried about using a usb slot, well dont be this thing plugs right into the wall!!!!! This is simply a must have for anyone with two controllers. Great Job Sony!
Of course its good its a sony
I have noticed sony products like the ps3 work better with other sony products. Ibelive this keeps the controllers charged longer. And buy this over the energizer one. In fact I bought this because my energizer one broke.
Easy to set up and easy to use
Super fast charging no more cords to trip over A++
Best Ps3 Controller Charger Out There
At first i was skeptical about buying this. Trusting Sony and loving there products, i went for it. It's great. It's sturdy, takes up virtually no space, charges quickly, and is so simple. You just slide it into the compartment and that's it. The dongle thing that goes on the controller itself is low profile and light, you wont even notice it's there. Although I would have liked to spend 5 or 10 dollars less on it, it is well worth it. Better than any other third party charging station.
When You Want High Quality, Buy Sony!
Best charging dock out there! The design is slick and it performs amazingly. Not much to say about it. The clips are low profile and weigh nothing, so they don't change the balance of your controller. You can just tell this is a good product right out of the box, nice heavy base and clean feel. I would recommend this product to anyone who has a PS3, and even if you have more then 2 controllers, it would be a great idea to spend the extra money to get 2 of the charging docks!
Stick with the brand name
i found that when buying accessories for the top 3 systems ( wii, ps3, xbox) its best to buy the accessories for them made by them, the off brand and energizer versions work at beginning but seem to suddenly stop working later. so all thou may save you money at first they dont last long. you get what you pay for. if you have a ps3 this the charger for you
best PS3 controller charging stand on the market
i have owned a few charging stands, they all used the existing USB port and not an adapter like this one. the adapter connects to the controller, it has a nib at the screw hole to help hold it in place. once connected it puts changes the USB into a contact charging port, this eliminates the constant inserting and removing of a USB plug thus extending the life of the controller (those plugs do have a life based on insertions and removals, its called duty cycle) i couldnt be happier with this one as other stations have broke controllers (the energizer/PDP ones are the worst)
preformance: 10 it charges as advertised
value: 10 it dosent break my controllers
design : 10 the smart design extends the life of the controllers attached
Best thing ever invented.
This is the best invention for the ps3 ever. its so helpful for me and im actually getting another one because it was so helpful. i would recommend this to anyone who has a ps3.
