by brisk540 Wireless Headset Charger Usable
If you read most of these reviews on how the usb port that is used for the headset adapter to charge the official ps wireless heaset does not work than a solution to this is instead of using the usb holder that came with the charger use a usb cable connect it to the charger then connect it to your wirelless headset it should then be charging. Overall the charger is a ten.
Rated 3 out of 10 by Bdan Good Product but doesnt last
i was going to rate this product at the top due to the convenience factor and how great the indicator lights were, however after one year of use the product no longer works. I figured since it was a branded product of Energizer that i could trust this but i guess not. I read many reviews and questions that it was okay to leave it on the base when not in use but i still unplugged the rear cable just to make sure when not in use. within the first year the green lights would come on automatically even though the battery warning lights and PS had shown my controllers to be almost dead. After another month i couldnt get the lights to stay on red to charge and wiggling them took too much time before i got irrirated. I love the convenience factor of wireless remotes but this charge stand sucks horribly. I will stick with alternating my controllers with the original cable till i can find a solution i like. I dont think someone should have to buy charging dock after charging dock. give us products that last!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Superman47145 Incredible Product - A Must Have!
I just bought my ps3 last week, and bought an extra controller for my little brother to play along. I actually saw a similar stand at a big-box retail store, but I thankfully did not buy it due to some unattractive design choices. However, when I walked in to my local Gamestop (Corydon, Indiana - Represent!), I found this little beauty. Being able to get rid of the cumbersome charging cables that always get twisted together was enough for me to pay the price tag. But when I got it home, it was even greater than I'd seen in the store. The red/Green lights add a lot of style and functionality to the product, but are not blindingly bright (like some of the Wiimote chargers out there), and the two extra USB ports are handy for charging extra peripherals, like bluetooth headsets, but I do not recomment charging more controllers with these. If you have 4 controllers, buy 2 of these charging stands, and place them on either side of the PS3. If you don't have room for that, then MAKE ROOM. You'll thank me for it later.

I actually got this as a present to go along with my brand new PS3 I had just bought days earlier. I remember seeing this stand in the store and thinking how cheap and flimsy it looked. Well, after taking it out of its container I was met with a much stronger, more durable feeling product in my hand. After setting it up and plugging in my two controllers and blue tooth directly in the side, I realized how stylish and functional this product was. The clasp that held each controller in place was brightly lit in red to show its still charging the controller, but a little over an hour later the bright red was replaced with a soothing green that just screamed "I'm ready I'm ready play me play me!!!" I love having this charge stand in my collection. It's sleek style fits perfectly with the PS3 and beats having random cords laying around to charge your controllers. A definite must buy. Perfect for anyone who appreciates sleek design to go along with your PS3 and someone who wants to keep clutter to an absolute minimum. Get it today!
Rated 10 out of 10 by the turntable assassin The answer to my charging prayers.
First off let me say that with out this charge station i probably would have dead controllers all the time. I go tthis charge station this past christmas and it's great from the design to not leaving your PS3 on to charge, OH did i mention the cool colors lol(red and green). Before this charge station i was always leaving my PS3 on to charge my controllers and then i would have to alternate them to charge my headset not any more because this station can charge up to 4 accessories at one time. This baby sits right beside my PS3 ready to go whenever i need it especially since i been playin COD alot it sure does come in handy one thing i really like knowing when your controllers are charged up, while they charge you get a red light that looks pretty sick and when their done you get a green light which is even better because that means it's game time. Another perk that this charge station has compared to some that i seen is that you can plug it in your wall so no need to have your PS3 running. All in all i give this product a 10 out of 10.

First I would like to say, WOW what a awesome product. It looks great and works great to. I went ahead and purchased this because I just bought a new PS3 Slim ( it only has two usb ports but is otherwise its a great system) and a second controller. Its nice to be able to plug in the guitar hero dongles and not have to worry about charging your controllers. The only gripe I have is that it can be a little difficult plugging in the controllers at first. you have to know how to slide them in otherwise you are going to miss the plug. Not a big deal when you get used to it and you eventually learn where the plug is but make sure you don't force it otherwise you could bend the plug or something. If you have a few controllers and are looking for a great way to free up some usb ports ( this should be boxed in with the new PS3 Slim if you ask me) Then I would definitely recommend that you get this great charge station.

I have had two controllers for awhile, and I only had one USB cable to charge them. I saw this product at Gamestop and decided to pick it up, and I have to say, this is one of the best things I have ever bought for my ps3. It works perfectly, and it has this light up display, red for charging, and green for charged. It is very efficient and has the ability to charge up to four controllers at once. This charging station is very durable. At first it looked pretty flimsy, but after it had accidentally dropped off its shelf a couple of times, it kept intact and worked as if nothing had happened. this is an incredibly great buy, and I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a very reliable and overall amazing charging station for their controllers. I could not ask for more in a charging station. (I have had this charger for over a year, and nothing has ever gone wrong!)
Rated 10 out of 10 by sf4_beast Sleekest choice for charging your PS3 controllers
I just purchased the Charge Station and I must say that I am most impressed. I expected it to be cheaper and more flimsy than it was but it is suprisingly good. The base of the unit actually has a good amount of weight to it, so it doesn't seem like cheap plastic. The design of the top portion is very seksi. I do enjoy the curve with the chrome on the sides. The clear controller slots light up from within with was a cool little detail. The clear plastic is red when its charged and green when its ready. The charge time is also seemingly on par with the PS3, so now I do not have to keep my PS3 running all day while I'm at work. On top of everything, the product is Energizer. How can you go wrong with that? I'm suprised that Energizer has not made more charge units for other systems (handhelds and such) but I'm glad that this is here now.
Rated 1 out of 10 by PC_LOAD_LTR Wears out quickly
The unit started out OK. It looks nice, has the extra USB ports, etc etc. However I (like some other people I know) noticed that it sometimes didnt charge at all, or would light up green (full charge) when plugging in a dead controller. Finally figured out that It had to be unplugged from the wall and replugged with the dead controller in place so it would recognize and charge properly. I thought I could deal with that (too lazy to try to return it) Now as time goes by, the top charging port will not hold a controller, the lower port seems to only recognize one controller no matter what I do, and it still has to be unplugged to charge correctly. Might as well just be a powered USB hub. There are plenty of other chargers out there if you want to avoid the usb tangle. choose one where gravity helps hold the controller in place.

The best peripheral that you can invest in for your sleek PS3, not only does it solve the problem of having to leave your Playstation 3 on 4 hours to get your controller charged it also is very sleek matching very well with the setup. I did not know what I was missing out on before I got it. The very first time I saw it at Gamestop, I thought it would be a waste of money, and I was totally wrong. I should have bought it that time but I ended up getting it the next week. Boy, when I got home I couldn't wait to get in and take it out. After the smell of that new plastic left I had already taken it out and was hooking it up to an outlet and boy was I happy, satisfied and anything else. I definitely recommand this product to anybody who has or is planning on getting a PS3, this thing is a must buy.
