PowerA - Charging Station for PlayStation 4 - Black

We've all been there — it's fourth and goal, three seconds left and you're down by five. You line up over center and notice the one-on-one matchup you wanted on the left side. You hike the ball, drop back and hit triangle to launch a jump ball to your open receiver — only nothing happens. You press and press and press, and still nothing happens. Then the outside linebacker finishes his break and decleats you into the turf, ending the game. Make sure your controller never runs out of juice, and keep the battery charged with this officially licensed Power A Charging Station.

      I was very disappointed in this product. Went with it because it was official PS4 product and was the cheaper alternative than getting a double charger. HOWEVER, I was so disappointed in this design and function. First of all, it is a USB charger... not a DC wall charger... so you either have to plug into your PS4 and use one of the outlets... when I could already do that with existing cord...or get a USB wall charger adaptor and use it that way! My opinion... that is just poorly thought out. Why purchase this if I'm going to plug into the PS4...just as I would with existing cord? Secondly, the overall design is awful with moving parts and a separate charging adaptor to plug into the controller. Why make this so complicated just to charge the controller...AGAIN...when I could have just plugged into the PS4 directly?!? Then you have this charger adaptor you plug into the controller to then mount into the charger... that then depresses and moves down to charge? Huh? Again, maybe someone thought this was an interesting design, but I don't get it. Why have a separate adaptor piece that only fits this charger and that could be lost or damaged.... and then the rest of the goofy, moving contraption is useless! Plus, no charging light on the unit either...a small thing I admit, but another annoyance. In short, the only reason I didn't give it one star was because I think it actually was charging, but only after I went through multiple steps to set it up. Overall, a strange design and frustrating way to connect and actually charge a single controller, when I could just use the existing cord in the first place! FYI... I immediately returned this as soon as possible and spent the extra money and got a double controller charger! Also, I'm a longtime PlayStation owner having had PS2, PS3 and previous chargers for those.

      Hardly a bargain with this freeby

      I received this unit as part of the buy a system get this, and Fallout 4 deal. The package contains the charge station, a microusb connector. The charging station is connected to a usb port via a foot long usb cable and no A/C wall adapter is included. To me this charging station is beyond useless. How it works, the above mentioned microusb connector is plugged into the top of the remote, angling down behind the remote with two recessed conductors, the controller is then sat atop the charge base and pressed down to initiate the charging. The base is this cheap spring loaded plastic case that is molded to the bottom of the controller. Its stills well enough but the spring load action is wonky. Previous to me buying a PS4 I charged my PS3 controls through my cable box's always on usb port and the route I go with my PS4 control, and if I do use a wall adapter I will just use one from my various phone chargers. In summary this thing accomplishes nothing that you can't already do with what comes with the PS4, other than to take up space.

      I've never written a negative review before, but I'm disappointed in this charging station. Granted, I just picked up the item from the shelf and bought it without really reading the box, BUT one would naturally assume that the charging station would have an AC adapter to plug into the wall. This has a USB cable that I'm assuming is meant to be plugged into the PS4 to charge the remote. If I had an extra USB wall plug, I would just deal with it and move on with my life, but I'm fairly certain I'm going to return this item and spend a little more for the sony version that actually does have an ac adapter. The cool part about this charger is how the remote just rests on the stand and is charged via a little USB dongle that you semi-permanently plug into the back of your remote.

      USB Charger that requires too much

      Admittedly, I did not research this charger before grabbing it off the shelf. It wasn't the main thing I was buying that day and just happened to catch my eye with a cheap price. If I had known it was only a USB charger and that an adaptor was required to plug into the PS4 controller I wouldn't have picked it up. Regardless, I've given it a try for a few days and have to say that it is going back. Trying to get a connection between the charging bed and the controller is difficult as one has to press the whole thing down to engage charging. So, instead of just plugging the included Sony USB cord straight into the controller (the "stock" charging method), this one adds anywhere from 10 to 60 seconds of frustration attempts trying to make sure everything lines up perfectly. So, $15 for added annoyance is really what you're paying for.

      Great budget charger, with a weird dongle

      I purchased this charger for my new console, but was somewhat disappointed in the way it works. You have to use a dongle piece that plugs into the USB port of the controller, and requires that you "push down" the base until it clicks. It's a weird setup to say the least, and the unit is unusable without the dongle piece plugged into the controller. The push down instruction is also odd, since you don't need to push it back down to release the controller. I often found myself pushing down to make sure it was in the "charge position." If this is the only option in the store, and just want a basic charger, this will do it. Otherwise, find an option that doesn't require all the extra steps to charge the controller.

      Dont bother but while it worked it was great

      I will say I did love this product and it worked great while it lasted, this thing comes with a good sized base for the ps4 controller to sit on but then it also comes with this super tiny adapter that plugs into the mini USB port on your controller, this adapter does not securely lock into your controller and will fall off without you seeing or noticing it happening. I did contact Power A to find out if there is a replacement for the adapter but I got this: Kelli T. May 13, 10:05 Hello there, Thank you for contacting PowerA Support! I'm very sorry, but we do not offer replacement parts outside of warranty service, which unfortunately, does not include lost pieces. Regards, Customer Service So I will say as long as you know you will never loose that small part I would say pass on it and spend a little more money on something else that is better built.

      This charging station is a good solution for making your gaming setup run smoother. To use the charging station you just plug in a small device into your controller and set it onto the station itself. The small device is about the size of a Bluetooth ear piece and runs down the back of your controller. It absolutely doesn't interfere with your hands at all so you can leave it plugged in at all times. And when it's ready to be charged, or you're done gaming for the day, you just simply set it on the station and it instantly begins charging. The station connects to your PS4 via USB so the PS4 will have to be on or in rest mode in order to charge the controller. It may work with a wall plug that's compatible with USB, but I can't confirm that.

      Price out ways functionality

      It works to charge the controller, but you have to force the unit down to click in place for it to power the adapter. Also the adapter works, but another small piece of plastic that is required to act as an adapter for the unit to connect. Not very functional when you've just put in a ten hour gaming run, and all you want to do is get it charging before you fall into bed, along with trying to remember..."where did I leave that tiny adapter?". Results in most cases the controller doesn't get charged before bed. The morning sun however gives a needed measure of clarity to make everything connect for a successful charge. Honestly, it's easier just to plug the controller into the usb to charge. Not as new age streamlined, but it works.
