Xbox One Charge Station
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.
To charge your controller, you have to take you accessories off your controller including the battery cover or an audio adapter for a headset in order to charge the controller. It takes hours in order for it to a fully charge. I would not recommend it.
This charges my controllers but is unreliable as it charges very slowly or seldomly not at all. Do not buy.
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
This is a terrible product. I bought it when the xbox one first came out because this was pretty much all I had to choose. It worked fine for a while but then it stopped. Will not charge with two controllers on it and I have to play with one controller for a while before it will attempt to charge. It will show it is charging for about two minutes then stops. I am going to go buy the energizer charging station as this is a piece of junk. Don't even waste your time thinking about buying this. YOU WILL REGRET IT!!!!!
The charge base is very poorly designed.
I attempted to work with the charge base for over 30 minutes and only became more frustrated. With any luck I would be able to make one controller begin charging but if I attempted to place the next controller to begin charging both controllers would immediately become unresponsive. I then just tried to only charge one controller and could not even get that to happen. After repeated frustration I gave up. I was very disappointed in this product.
Bad at recognizing contoller
The charging dock must be shaped wrong or something because the controller is almost never recognized. I need to adjust the controllers 50+ times before the light goes on that shows that my controller is recognized and charging. Waste of money.
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.
Bought it for my XBO controller, got it on sale brand new, last month, worked fine in the beginning, but then the LED indicator light started flicking, had it UNPLUGGED for 4 days due to be out of town, plugged it in, won't event power up or charged, very very very disappointed. Luckly got two days left on GS warranty, will be returning tomorrow. just go ahead and spend the money and get the energizer version.
Very Poor Engineering
This Nyko Charger is garbage. The Poor engineering, baffles even me.
First off the charger doesn't have anything to keep the controller correctly on the charger base. the slightest bump will break the connection and your controller won't charge, of course you don't realize this till you go to use the controller, only to find out it's dead.
Second, if you decide to charge both controllers at once, the charger won't charge either one completely.
please don't waste your money
