    Must have for anyone without extra controllers.

    This beats the heck out of the stock cable that comes with the PS4 if you need a charge on the fly. I usually have a fully charged backup controller, so I just switch them out when I play solo and make sure one is always fully charged, but these are essential for long gaming sessions with family and friends as I don't have extra controllers. When all the controllers are being used and a low battery light comes on, just plug this in and everyone can keep gaming. I have one for each controller I own and recommend doing the same. That way no matter how many people play and how many controllers run low on battery life, the game doesn't have to end for anyone. I have a 50" TV and can sit where I usually game while this is plugged in. I couldn't imagine enjoying a game while just a few feet from the TV using the stock cable. Must have for PS4 players.

    I have a 55 inch TV, so I sit back a ways from my TV. Considering the charge cables are normally only 4 feet, this was a major upgrade. And it's pretty much the only brand and cable I've seen at retail that is ten feet. This helps me charge while I play, and I actually connect my Dual Shock 4 via this cable instead of Bluetooth for better response time. (You can change the DS4 to wired mode in the PS4 system options. Once selected you'll use the charge cable as the way to connect your controller instead of Bluetooth, which makes for faster input times. Great for Fighters and FPS games. Also, if you unplug it, you can go straight back to wireless mode. Plug the cable back in and it automatically switches back to wired mode. No menu action required.

    An excellent cable that does its job perfectly.

    I've had no issues at all with this cable, and I feel like I should be more appreciative of that. It works flawlessly with my DualShock 4, which I use as a PC controller, and the performance is just as solid as with the cable that came with my PlayStation 4 and my other controller, even if the cord is longer than what I personally need (but I'm glad the length is there for someone who may need it). I routinely use my PlayStation controllers for fast-paced fighting games, and my friends and I have, to the best of my knowledge, never experienced or reported any performance/lag issues while playing on a controller using this cord.

    As much as I dislike wires getting in the way when I'm gaming, I hate having to constantly charge my controller even more. This micro USB cable is the perfect length for me and I wish it would be the standard. If I'm not mistaken, the cable that comes packaged with the PS4 is 5 feet long and it feels way to short for me. That 5 foot cable forces me to either have to sit close to the TV or worry about the battery eventually dying on me. But this 10 foot cable eliminates that problem and allows me to keep the controller charged at all times even while I'm playing a game. I love it and highly recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind the trade off.

    I use this cable since my playstation is on the opposite wall of my couch and it reaches perfectly. Nothing special or bad about it, just a standard charging cable. I will say that in the past year or so I've bought 3. The first stopped working after several attempts to hide the stripping. The second is used to charge my phone and the third I bought after not liking the charging stand for controllers.

    I bought this brand of a longer cord for my PlayStation 4 controller, and the length was great. However, less than 6 months later, it doesn't seem to fit the controller input and will not charge controller, could be a short in cord, bottom line, it does not work. So, I plan to go purchase an Energizer brand extra length cord for my PlayStation 4 controller. The Energizer brand one I got for my PlayStation 3 controller still works, 5+ years later, compared to the Insignia brand's 6 month operational span. Would not recommend, based on my experience.

    Never remove it from your controller.

    Bought two of these for PlayStation and my PC. The first cable gave out within a couple months; the prongs gripping it to the Dual Shock don't last very long at all and now I can't use it while gaming without the cable slipping out of the controller. The second cable I never pull from my other controller because I learned my lesson the first time. I'll probably never get a USB cable again and just get a charge station. They are not built to last.

    I have used this charger for a few years now. Price-wise it's cheap, but excellent quality. I haven't ever had a single problem using it. Oftentimes i charge my phone while gaming and it works without a hitch. The cord is great while playing and charging because 10' gives me ample room, i can sit back and not worry about the cord length. It is most definitely worth it!

    This product allows me to charge the controller while playing my games on the ps4. The shorter cables that come with the system you can't do that unless you are sitting right up against the TV. However, I have found that you don't have to plug the controller charger cable into the system while it charges. Maybe others already knew this, but I do have the shorter cables plugged into the wall near where I sit so when playing 2 or more can play more than 2 controllers need charging.

    I do extended gaming sessions and occasionally needed to be able to charge and play without interruption. This cable allows me to do that while being able to sit back on the couch at a relaxed distance from the screen without having to use the short cable provided with the PS4 and wind up huddled 3 feet from the tv. The cable could be a little thicker/stouter. It seems a little flimsy, but it does what it's supposed to do, and so far, I've had no issues with it.

    I have my controller close to the tv but not close enough for the original cable. I always leave it plugged in and this has allowed me to be farther away from the tv. It has kept my controller charged so far and the only problem is that it lays around on the floor. Just preference and not really a problem since that is what I bought it for was the length.

    I bought this to charge my Playstation 4 headset and controller. The ones that come with those products are way too short for you to be able to charge and play at the same time. This cord has definetely fixed that. This cord is plenty long enough that I can charge and play from any seat in my living room. It's a sturdy cord that I feel should last for years to come. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

    I have to say, I went crazy looking for a long cord that would fit my nephew's LG Arista Cell Phone but, low & behold after going into Best Buy I was able to use the PlayStation controller cord in the Phone & the controller. Just think about it, I was looking for 1 thing but was able to kill two birds with 1 stone at 1 store. How GREAT!!!!! is that ??? Thanks, Best Buy...lol

    This cable is just what I needed. The length of the cable allows me to sit comfortably on the sofa and playing while my controller charges. Only negative for this item is actually the Best Buy service. Website said they had it in store. Kid at the store didn't seem too interested in helping me find it. So he found me the wrong one, and then told me just to order it online. So I stood in the store and ordered it online through Best Buy's website and picked it up there the next day.

    If your a PS4 gamer and have troubles keeping your controller charged, then this is a must buy! The standard cord that comes with the system is around 2-4' which can only get you so far from the screen unless you have an extension. Well I said the heck with that and purchased this and now i can sit comfortably away and can also charge my remote! I'd get this if you don't like to burn your retinas charging and playing.

    I was looking for a inexpensive charging cable for my Samsung smart phone and I came across this product. I saw that it said Dualshock which mean for the Playstation 4 controllers to charge. As I looked at the ends of the cable I saw that the small end looked like one for my smart phone, so I bought this. When I took it home and plugged it in it fit perfectly. If you are looking for a really long android smart phone cable then I recommend purchasing this product

    My fiance would hear me upstairs all the time yelling at my PS4 controller because I would be in the middle of the game and my controller would die, but I didn't have a cord long enough. Lone behold, one day I come up to this and it is definitely a game changer. No getting up and down to plug in your controller and unplug the other one that has barely had enough time to charge!. 10ft is pretty long!!

    A value for charging while playing

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

    Are your controllers low on battery? Then charge-and-play from nearly ten feet away! I try not to leave my controllers charging on a stand constantly, but that also creates a tendency for me to forget, and then find that the controller battery is low later. Any USB cable that is more than a couple feet long is a valuable purchase. Being able to charge while playing and sitting on the couch or wherever is great!

    Ever gamer knows if your controller is going to die, it'll be right in the middle of a heated sequence of events. Don't get caught with your pants down! This charger cable works every bit as good as the PS brand and cost less. I suggest getting a couple though as the weight of the cable tends to bend the connection where it plugs in over time, thus causing a loose connection. Still well worth the money. Recommend!

    Perfect for charging while playing

    The charging cord that came with the PS4 is not long enough to plug in and play at the same time. This longer cord makes it much easier to sit back and play comfortably while still charging the controller. Fits the charging port perfectly. Does take a bit longer to charge than the one that came with the system but could be because I use it while playing more often than not. Definitely recommended for the cost ad convenience.
