Xbox One Charge Station
Had to respond to poor reviews...this charger is very good for the price. Easy to install batteries in the controllers. No need to take battery covers off to recharge controllers. Just place controller in, and forget about it. Easy for me and my 3 kids to charge controllers when not in use..I've had this charger since it came out, and no issues..
not good at charging
dont line up on base thats good have to take off the batt back to have it charge had it for 2 weeks had to trade in it for a different charging sys
This is going to be great!
I had one of these with the 360 and I know it will be great. I wont be spending 50 on two play and charge kits. It comes with two batteries and from the 360 version I would get around 8 hours of play time per battery. So if one dies I will just pull the battery from the other one and use it. No need for other batteries or the charge kits. Plus the indicator lights are always great, letting you know when they are ready to go. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone who plays lots like I do. Great product and glad to see it is back.
This has to be one of the worst Designs ever!
You're never sure if the charger has a good connection with the controller.
Battery Life IS WAAAYYYY LESS than the advertised 25 hours. (about 8 hours)
Charge Time IS WAAYYYY more than the advertised 1 hour. (about 3 hours)
Save your money Plenty of other Chargers out there. Spend the extra 10 bucks, and not feel like throwing a perfectly good Controller through a Perfectly good TV.
Ok first off this charger base/stand look amazing. I like the design....but that's where every thing stops. It will only charge one controller at a time, and never gives a full charge. The front port works the back port does not. I have to switch out the controllers just to charge them and with only half a charge it is just stupid and pointless, especially if you have someone over and you both want to game and you cant BECAUSE ON OF YOUR CONTROLLERS IS COMPLETELY DEAD AND THE FREAKING CHARGER STAND YOU BOUGHT ONLY CHARGES ON AT A TIME.
So enough with the rant. Save your money and get something different. Not worth it at all.
Holds controllers, doesn't do much else.
I have the Nyko charging base for the Xbox 360 and I love the thing, so I'm especially disappointed that the charging base for the Xbox One fails so miserably at it's only job: Charging. The Nyko charging base comes with two rechargeable batteries that fit securely in the controller, but in order to charge the battery you need to take off the battery door before you set it on the base, which increases the likely hood that the battery door will get lost. Aside from that, the way the batteries lie in the controller leads to the battery not actually resting on the charging contacts. This was not a problem with the 360 base, but here you have to make sure the controller is placed perfectly in the base, and then it's not guaranteed that the batteries will actually charge, as the charging lights are very unresponsive. I plan on exchanging my Nyko charging base for a different manufacturer's model.
Buy something else!
Bought this tonight at the suggestion of the sales rep...she suggested it was more reliable then the Energizer brand which sells for the same price and comes with the same number of components...base station, 2 batteries, 2 battery covers. I followed all instructions, inserted the battery, placed the cover on it and docked it, plugged the docking station in and set down to watch a 2 hour movie. When the movie was done, I checked and there was no life at all in the battery. Thinking it may be a bad battery, I switched the other one that came with the set and again waited for a charge, nothing. The product was DOA right out of the box so back to the store it goes. I'm just going to get the microsoft branded plug and play charge system, it's 10 bucks cheaper and probably will work.
IT TURNS RED AND THEN GREEN IN 2 MINUTES BUT GOOD
IT GOES FROM RED TO GREEN IN 2 MINUTES SOMETIMES I WONDER IF ITS REALLY WORKING BECAUSE THE BATTERY DISPLAY ON XBOX SAYS ITS HALF CHARGED. SOMETIMES WHEN I PALCE CHARGE ON THE BASE IT REQUIRES YOU TO SLIDE IT AROUND BEFORE IT ACTUALLY CHARGES.
Good,it does what it says.WORTH IT!
Before I start my review,please let me say that to all those people saying this is bad because it doesn't do one thing or the other thing,obviously,you are get your expectations to high.It does what it says it does and it looks cool too.I love it.Worth the money.It does what it says.Charges your controller,gives your chargeable battery pack(with slide case),charges up to 2 controllers at a time,and has a light indicating how much battery the controller has.So it works great,looks great,and does exactly what it says it does.Great Product.
MONEY SAVER, BETTER THAN ENERGIZER DOCK
This charging station is by far the best one for the xbox one. Not only does it show you that your controller is charging, but it shows which controller is charging and what level of power it is at between red,yellow, and green. Charging is fast and effortless, just drop your controller in ad it is ready to go instantaneously.
