    Ok for standard controller...not ok for Elite.

    Just picked up the white Elite controller and was looking for a white charger to match. Tired this one first and not completely happy. The battery and new white battery cover work just fine and the white matches. The Elite controller WILL charge on this stand but with the back paddles installed it was very touchy on getting it lined up just right to hit the contacts. Took a couple tries to hit the contacts and then the slightest movement it would loose contact. If you remove the paddles it would sit in and charge nicely. Hence the title.....this is great for the standard controller but if you have an Elite this isn't your best option. I have the Insignia charger for my black Elite controller and it works very well. But it only comes in black. Wish they made it in white. Sadly I don't think they will because on bestbuy.com it is showing that model is on clearance. I am going to try this charger next: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/controller-gear-charging-stand-for-xbox-one-controller-robot-white/6196928.p?skuId=6196928 Sadly the price is double of what the other one I tried but if it works it works. It is what it is I suppose. Note - this charger looks to be the one they sell and advertise on the Microsoft store.....here's hoping the Elite controller sits properly in here. I will review when I receive this charger. I put my answer to refer to a friend but with fair warning not to use and Elite controller with it.

    Why didnt I get this earlier

    Saw this available instead of the 2-controller for bedroom use! So far Ive plugged it in and started charging. Found the last two white ones in the store (also comes in black). Controller doesnt sit super-secure, but thats fine, considering its meant to be pushed down wih the controller (Id never do that, better to do by hand before putting the controller on there). Doesnt come with a wall port but its intended to be plugged into the xbox itself. - the details say its input/output match any classic 5v wall port, just go spend the additional 5$. Battery pack goes in fine, but the battery door is a little weird - you kinda just have to line it up and push it into place until it clicks securely. Overall for a single-controller charger, it works great so far, and Im really happy that it came in white to match the xbox's.

    I read many reviews about many chargers and this was my end choice... Very effective and nice to get white to match my XBoX... all those people whining about how it seems flimsy are wrong... they just want it to be an iPhone quality and it is just a controller charger... mine sits fine and nobody is moving it around... it has its own space and it is phine... it would not get it if i had a bunch of activity around my equipment... my kids are grown and it is just me and my wife... i love the red(charging) and green(charged) lights and have it visible so i can click to raise it up to stop the charging... it is phast and very convenient... so far the batteries(2X controllers) rock! I found this to be the best "white" controller charging system out there... have phun!

    Decent charger for the controller

    This is a decent charger for my xbox controller. It does what it's supposed to and I get a decent amount of play time between charges. My one compaint is that, unlike other charging stations that I've used for my PS4, there is not a positive lock between the charging base and the controller when in use. Instead, the controller sits in place, with gravity being responsible for maintaining the connection. A hard jostle can disconnect the controller, resulting in a less-than full charge. Other than that, much better than contrinually fishing around for more AAs.

    Works Perfectly

    The rechargeable battery fit in perfectly, however, the plastic backing did not snap in easily. It was a tight fit and at one point I thought I was going to break it because it wasn’t snapping in. With some effort it did snap in for a very tight fit. Once the controller was fitted I set it on the dock and it was working perfectly. The dock power cord is a micro-usb on one end and a regular USB on the other. It does not come with a wall socket. The base lights up red when charging, green once charged.

    If you're a solo player, then this is the way to go for your charging needs. Just pick it up and start playing. When you're done, just place it back on the stand and it will automatically start charging till full. Didn't have any issues when I used it, and the battery never seemed to become "weak" from letting it sit on the charger all the time. I would say that if you have multiple controllers to go for the next up charging station that holds two.

    This works, but the white color doesn't match my black Xbox Elite controller, and the connection mechanism using the weight of the controller to push it down to start changing seems kind of chintzy. You might be better off waiting for Microsoft to release their own docking station with future Elite controllers, which was what I was really looking for when I bought this.

    Battery cover a bit of a challenge to get back on, but once you do, these things do as advertised. We have used them for 3 or 4 hours and not ran out of charge. They seem to charge up quickly. I would say from out of the box to fully charged was 3 hours. They plug into USB ports and will need an adapter to plug into the wall. We have them plugged into the 2 USB ports on the back of the xbox for now.

    I've had many different Xbox Elite controller chargers and can say that this one is very good, except that if you do have an Elite controller with paddles, it is very touchy to find the right spot for the controller to sit in the cradle properly and get charged. Without paddles attached and/or a regular Xbox controller, this charger is very good.

    My son kept going through batteries like none I've ever seen before. So we bought him this and explained that there will be no more AA batteries being handed to him. He now complains about not being able to play comfortably while it's charging (he lost his USB cable). So that encourages him to put it down for a while but then he jumps on Pokemon Sun or Moon... Still a great product, looks good on his entertainment center and goes well with the white XB1 controller

    Says on box it works with Xbox Elite controller but the charging pins wouldn't contact with the battery. If I fiddled with the thing for a while it would charge but it required angling the controller in such a way that it didn't fit well into the charging slot. Would have returned but I didn't open until a few weeks after I bought it. Avoid this product.

    It does exactly what it is supposed to do. My only issue was it's very finicky. Meaning that when you drop your controller on the base you have to adjust it ... everytime. You have to pay close attention and make sure to get the connections to line up "just so". So if you're not paying attention (or in my case you have a small child at home the happens to move everything around) it won't charge.

    This stand works perfectly. The rechargeable battery pack lasts a long time on a single charge, and the stand is easy to use both when charging and when not charging. I like the fact that the stand can he clicked down to charge and clicked back up when done. The lights also give an easy way to tell when it's ready. Only complaint would be the stand is a little wobbly but it was cheap to buy so overall very pleased

    As a parent and a gamer I can honestly say that this is one of those side items that are simply needed when purchasing a gaming system. Controllers chew through batteries, and who wants to constantly keep digging through the junk draw or raiding other devices for them. This charger eliminates the hassle and cost of that issue. Controllers last for hours on one charge. Highly recommended.

    I purchased this charging station and the dual charging station both at the same time for Christmas. Had a slight issue with the dual station but this one has performed flawlessly so far. Charges relatively quickly and am so happy that I'm not throwing money down every other day for batteries!!:)

    this is an excellent charger for the xbox one controller. you just place the controller on the charger and it will charge the controller. i just have the one xbox one controller so it works out perfect. the only thing that i did not like was that the charger does not include a plug. but i just plug the usb into my xbox one

    this charger works fine and came with a decent battery. it appears to fit any xbox one controller. you can connect the charger via USB to the xbox or to any other USB adapter. you set the controller on the charger, and push down to charge. it can also serve as a controller holder! this was a good price for a straightforward charger.

    This charger is great so fare. This charger is cheaper than the "play and charge" park Microsoft is trying to sell with a rechargeable battery and cable. Most folks I am sure have a micro USB charging cable around the house (android charging cable) which can also charge the controller with the battery that comes with this set as well.

    My initial concern was not understanding how the controller would charge on the base with no access to the charging port at the top. The charging stand comes with it's own battery pack and battery door with a cut out to make contact with the charging element on the base. Charges quickly with a bright indicator light to show, either full or charging.

    The plug in part located at the back of the charging device is a little wonky. Be sure to press down on the controller while it is on the charger. Listen for a click. Look for the light underneath to have a solid red color. It is recharging. When it the light underneath turns green it is ready for usage.
