DualShock 4 Charging Station for PlayStation 4
Don't waste your money -
This product is awkward and troublesome. The 'clicking' base where you are to push down for the controller to recharge is at an odd angle, which makes it hard to slide it in correctly. It charges fine, but the angle is annoying enough to make me want another that doesn't leave me playing with it for a few minutes every time I try to recharge my controller.
I thought that it was going to take a very long time for me to charge just one, but it didn't take that long. I really like the style of it but it would be nice if they would have made the plug in a little bit less bulky. I have a lot of stuff plugged in and I needed to move a lot of stuff so that it would fit but other then that, its really nice.
I bought these to charge my PS4 controllers and love it. It charges the controllers fast and the compact size makes it perfect to fit wherever you decide to put it.
I recommend this to anyone who owns a PS4.
Answer to Grandma
No, Shuhei has said PS4 will not need to remain on to power via USB. The system never really turns off, just goes in to a suspended state while everything remains in RAM. One click of a button instantly returns you to where you left off thanks to the GDDR5.
Mine was Horrid
I saved up enough power points so I got it for free and makes a fancy 'stand' for my controllers but no matter what when I charge them though they are glowing as if charging they are completely drained by the next day.
I wonder if the positive reviews came from the makers trying to unload this on unsuspecting players. Stick with the USB cable, these things aren't worth the price even if it worked as it should (30 dollars is way too much because it's cheaply made) much less knowing they deplete the charge not actually recharge them.
great bang for no buck
i recently got this using my power up rewards pointsand i love it.it charges the controllers faster then the standard cords and make everything look neat and organized.its easy to use and doese its job well.i definitly recomend this
Compact and cool looking
Bought this almost nine months ago and it is still working like a champ. It is also compact compared to the other charging stations out there. The controller pulsates a green glow when they are charging and stops glowing when fully charged. The stand looks really great. Just wish they made one of these that could handle charging four controllers.
works like it should
This works like it should. Makes charging multiple controllers easy. You push them down and they make a click sound that secures them in place push down and pull the controller out works pretty smoothly. It also lines up easy I have used some in the past on ps3 that took a minute to line up. This one lines up with out much work.
will you still have to have system on?
finally they made one but my question is will you have to have the ps4 on for it to charge like most of the ps3 stuff ?
There isn't many PS4 controller chargers on the market at the moment but this is certainly the best one out there. It is a nice way to charge your PS4 controller without having the USB cable plugged into the PS4. I like how the light on the controller still glows on and off until the charger is fully charged so you know when its ready, plus it doesn't over charge the controller. The overall design is nice and compact but they could have made the cradle a bit better as it can be a little tricky at first when you are trying to connect the controller to the cradle, but apart from that its a great product and worth buying.
