You've planned this guy's night for days. You've got the snacks out, a cooler of drinks ready, TV set up and your PlayStation 4 raring to go. Your buddies start to show up and you can't wait for the gaming action to begin. You fire up the console and get out on the battlefield. Everything is going great, your team is taking down enemies left and right and you're sure that victory is yours until suddenly your soldier stops moving. Frantically, you look down to realize your DUALSHOCK 4 controller has died. How embarrassing. Now you have to interrupt the action so that you can plug in and give your controller some juice. Avoid this inconvenient scenario by storing your DUALSHOCK 4 controllers on this Charging Station, and next time, guy's night will go off without a hitch.

This Charging Station can charge and store two DUALSHOCK 4 controllers to ensure they are powered up and ready for game time, as well as to keep them neatly stowed away. The attractive, compact design won't take up too much space and makes an eye-pleasing addition to your media setup. You'll know the moment your controllers are fully charged thanks to LED indicators, and the AC adapter plugs into the wall to keep your PlayStation 4's USB ports open. Once the gaming action is done, put your controllers right back on the Charging Station, and you'll know that they'll be ready to go next time.

      This is officially the third unit I've owned. I recently sold off the second unit (which was a manufacturer replacement) after selling my PS4 bundle to upgrade to the Pro. First, I will say that this is probably the best unit, aesthetically speaking. The way the two controllers sit back to back looks nice. That's (unfortunately) important when living in a home and the feng shui has to be on point. The most frequent issue that I have come across is that one of the ports will either stop charging a controller, or it won't charge the controller at all. Therefore, I am left with just one port to charge two controllers. I understand, I do not always use two controllers, but when I need two to play with others, it becomes a hassle when one of the two controllers dies quickly. I've merely had this new unit for approximately 2 months, bought with a new system and an extra controller, and it's already having issues. There is a 2 year manufacturer warranty, but it's definitely an issue that it's happened so often. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

      Great Device, Quality Varies Though

      I purchased one for my Playstation 4 when i first got it, and it has been an excellent device. It is very easy to use and is very convenient. You just put the controller on top and push it into place, where it will lock into position and start charging. When it is down, you push it back down to retrieve it. It is very smooth and fits the controller perfectly. When a friend got a Playstation 4, I bought this as a present for them, but there was a mechanical error in it, so that when you pushed down to retrieve the controller, it would delay and roughly snap up. In contrast mine was very smooth and nice. I had it returned to get a new one. It was much better, as it no longer snapped up. However, it still has rougher action than my first charger. In addition, the cable doesn't perfectly fit into the spot under the device holding it, so it just falls out. If all of them were as good as my first charger, I'd rate it a full 5, but 2 out of 3 devices were inconsistent with minor issues. They all still charged well and were still very convenient, giving me a spot to store the controllers.

      Pick a different one

      The charger looks alright but it takes up to much space as you are required to keep it sideways; if you turn it to face you then it becomes very difficult to impossible to grab the controller in the back without having to pick up the whole thing. Another problem is how 'sticky' it is, most of th time you have to use two hands to pick up a controller; one to grab the controller, and one to hold down the charging station. It's not really a problem but it does get really annoying. And finally the angles are horrible; you're not putting it in vertically, horizontally, or snapping it into place, you just have to either have a light shinning on it to line up the holes with the plug or just get lucky. When I used my PS3 controller charger it only took a week to get a hang of how to plug them in, with this it's been almost three weeks and I still have to guess. And it definitely doesn't help that you have to put it in sideways, while the thing scoots around on you. And to top it off it's already broken. I was just watching netflix when one of the controllers jumped off the charger. After closer inspection I found that the locking mechanism had broken on one side, this made it possible to only charge 1 controller at a time.

      Keeps the controllers ready to go!

      I'm giving this product four stars even though we had a problem with it. I see a few other people had a similar problem but ranked it only one star. The manufacturer stood behind the product for me so I don't feel the need to rank them too low. I took off the one star because I don't think I should have had a problem with it in the first place. I bought the first one at my local Best Buy on Dec 26, 2015. It worked great for about six weeks before we noticed that one side was not charging. I contacted the manufacturer, gave them the info they requested and they sent us out a replacement at no charge. That said, the charger works great and keeps the controllers topped off and ready for the next adventure. Some of the chargers I looked at required a dongle that stays attached to the controller, I like this one because it doesn't require a dongle. I highly recommend keeping either your original receipt or a clear .jpeg image of the receipt with the item's serial number in the pic also, just in case, for the length of the warranty. (2 years on this one)

      I've had this for 3-4 weeks now. Charges 2 controllers well and quickly. It's different than a charger I had for my PS3 and IT's controllers. This one doesn't have a snug fit when the controllers are docked. It doesn't affect the chargeability at all, it just takes some getting used to. You line up the curve of the PS button, push down, it has a spring-loaded "give", and it starts to charge. Also, the light on the controllers will light up yellow when you dock it at first, and will blink yellow while charging, but there is no light or indicator telling you the controllers are officially charged. I had one weird thing the first week where all of a sudden it wasn't charging. However in troubleshooting I unplugged it and plugged it into another outlet and it charged just fine. I took it back to the original outlet and have had no problems ever since. Maybe the wire just had a loose connection. I wish there were USB inputs on this so that we could plug/charge our two additional controllers, but we just rotate them and it's worked out fine.

      I love this thing. I originally purchased the $15 Power A single charger for PS4 (Model: 1346333-01 SKU: 4466201) and promptly returned it for this one. The $15 charger is absolute garbage. GARBAGE! Don't buy it. If you did buy it, you need to get right back into your car, drive to Best Buy and exchange it for this one. Seriously. This is twice the price, but you'll thank me, I promise. Here's why I hate the cheaper model and love this model: the single charging station doesn't come with an AC adapter, so you MUST either have an USB wall adapter, or use the USB ports on the front of the PS4. If Sony had put a USB on the back of the system, I would have been OK with it. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra $15 for this one. You're welcome.

      This charger serves it purpose as a dual charging station. It allows users the ability to simply place the controllers on the dock when finished them so that they'd be ready to go when you next choose to use them. "PROBLEM IS" the next time you're ready to grab the controller and play, the battery may be dead. I placed both controllers on the charger the night b4, both lights on the controllers showed that they were in fact charging. Next day I'm using 1 controller and the battery became low. I grabbed my 2nd controller from the station only to find that it was completely dead. And this is not the 1st, or 2nd, or even the 5th time I've had this happen since I bought this charger. Sony can we get a media remote to use for apps like the WWE Network or Blu-ray & Netflix so we can stop wasting batter life on the controllers while watching please... The Xbox One has one. It sucks, but at least they have an official remote

      Some pros: the item does its job! On top of that though it’s nice that you don’t have to leave your PS4 on to charge your controller. You can now charge your control with this device and not have to worry about your PS4. Cons: The item is just weird overall. The mechanism to get the controller in and out is done with a spring and mine gets stuck all the time. The biggest problem however is getting the controller in there! It’s not just pop in and done. You have to sit there for a minute and line it up and pop the spring down or be careful to not pop the spring up. In all honesty if I could return it I would, but the item does get the job done it could just be done way better.
