    PowerA - DUALSHOCK 4 Charging Station for PlayStation 4 - Black 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 DualShock charging system is worth every penny because keeping your controllers always charged up makes it more convenient for when you're ready to play your video games so definitely purchase this to Best Buy and get any protection or replacement plan for this item and Best Buy will take care of you

    When I say this is a must have if your kids has this gaming system. We learned our lesson quick a couple years ago when we purchased our other son the Xbox One. He literally was going through a 16 pack of batteries in a week it was insane. Those regular batteries don't last at all. We we're stressed out like wth did we get ourselves into. We spend all this money for this gaming system now looks like we will have to spend just as much on the batteries or more for a lifetime. After doing research we found this similar product for the Xbox so when we purchased his Playstation this was a must purchase along with it. Trust me you will spend the cost of this control charger on batteries easily in just one month. We even tried the rechargeable batteries and our sanity still wasn't intact. This here is a must purchase, you'll thank me later. :)

    Works well. My 1st one was defective

    I purchased this on sale, got it home, read the instructions and set it up. I plugged my 1st controller in (they're not exactly easy to line up to enable charging) and it began charging immediately. I plugged my 2nd controller in and the device would not allow it to sit straight, preventing it from charging. I contacted Power A and they asked for a photo (same one here), saw their device was defective and not only sent me an entire replacement, but upon my requesting that they start the warranty for the replacement unit on the day it was delivered from them to me, they agreed and apologized it was so. So this device seems to come from a good company which supports both their products and (best of all) their customers. The replacement has worked perfectly and I highly recommend this Power A dual PS4 controller charger! My photo is of intital, defective unit.

    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.

    Just What I Needed

    This charger is exactly what I was looking for. Charge port along the front of the controller will not hold a cable anymore due to being plugged and unplugged so many times, so I resorted to buying one of these in hopes that it would solve my problem. Turns out it was just what I needed! When setting the controller in to charge, you have to gently push the cradle down until it clicks and the light bar should start to glow indicating that the controller is charging. When you're ready to play again, gently push down on the cradle to bring the controller back up before trying to remove it from the cradle. The base does what you need it to do, but it's NOT indestructible so be mindful of where you place it and how high off the floor it is.

    Man, I was a dummy for not buying this thing right away when I bought my PS4 a few years ago. I have not had to use any cables or wires for well over a year now. No more tripping over anything. I can just charge my two controllers all day/night (in a convenient place), and keep playing for hours on end (much to the dismay of my wife). I even discovered that one controller that I thought had died because it wouldn't charge with the cable, starting working after I charged it using this product. It charges the controllers from the bottom inputs. I even had brought my "dead" controller into some electronic experts who told me the thing was dead. So much for being experts. I am glad I kept a hold of it and can now use it again thanks to this product!

    Convenient and solidly designed

    After checking out reviews of the handful of DualShock 4 chargers out there, I chose this one, and I'm not disappointed. It may not be a flashy design (it uses the standard amber charging color on the controllers instead of using red/blue), but it works well and doesn't take up much space. Since the connection is through an auxiliary connection below the PS button and not through the micro-USB port, the connection is firmer and the controllers are very stable on the charger. The only real trick is to make sure you push the controllers straight down until they latch firmly in place. The controller light glows amber (just like plugging it into the PS4 console), then goes out when the controller is fully charged. Simply press down on the controller and it will disengage and pop up, ready to use again.

    I was very sceptical and done a ton of research about this product. Well, I always do that. I was reading the reviews of this product on every website selling this model, then finally zeroed into Best Buy. Best Buy was the cheapest from all other stores or e-stores. Now about the product - Believe me this product saves you tonnes of problems with too many wires. The stand is robust though the instructional pamphlet doesn't tell you much about how to use the item. But once you figure out figure out how to place the controller it becomes very easy. 5 stars for the price 5 stars for the easiness and no hassle of wires.

    If you are like me and spend hours on hours playing your ps4 it can become a burden to charge your controllers. I have two and have problems remembering to keep them both charged. Of course I have a portable battery that I connect to a mini usb cord but, after a while doing that becomes cumbersome. Each night after finishing playing a game I just lock the controllers in this freestanding charger and, wha -La by the morning they are both fully charged & ready to go. Its nice that I can place this on my shelf where it takes up minimal space at best. If you want a out of the way charger for your controllers, this is the way to go.

    Got the PS4 charging stand on Black Friday for less than half of the regular retail price. It does exactly what I need it to do and takes up minimal space on my small end table, alll while being aesthetically pleasing to boot. Docking the controllers is a little confusing at first but all you have to is push them down until it clicks. The controller lights up to let you know it's charging. Push down again to have the controller pop up and you're ready to game.

    PlayStation 4 controllers have an average battery life of 7 playing hours. That's kind of ridiculous considering most games these days involve MANY more hours of play time. So you're almost forced to buy that 2nd controller they refuse to include with the system for a whopping 60 bucks extra. This is a little outrageous and honestly Sony, you're gauging your customers. Best Buy is only the middle man. It isn't their fault at all. I love Best Buy. But Sony should be ashamed of themselves. In addition to that, not making their systems backward compatible is only a way to force people to buy a PS3 for their ps3 games. However I can also add that in a way this can be seen as somewhat of a good thing... At least myPS4 isn't being overly used at the moment

    With ports for two PS4 controllers, never miss out on the action of your favorite video game again! I was looking for a genuine Sony PS4 product to charge my controllers. This was the closest you can buy (at this time), a fully licensed Sony PS4 charger cradle. Plug it into the wall, and then rest and 'click' your controllers in place. Great for storage, and good to know your controllers are charging at the same time, so when you need it, they are fully charged and ready to go. Positive clicking action lets you know that it is in place and charging. The controllers light up orange while charging and then the light goes out when fully charged. Nice looking, and unobtrusive at a good price point.

    I love this little device! Dual charging ports ensure at least 2 controllers are charged at all times. Charging automatically stops at capacity. Easy press down click design ensures controller stays in place, while also making it easy to take out the controller. Controller charges through the headphone jack, no dongles needed! Most importantly, this can be plugged into the wall, which means no need to to leave your ps4 in rest mode to charge your controllers! Would definitely recommend to anyone with at least two controllers.

    I'm no stranger to charging PS4 controllers...after all it's the worst feature of the PS4. So, suffice to say, I've been through a lot of chargers and cords. This one, however, was surprisingly good. First of all, I had no idea the Dualshock 4 could even charge from the lower port to begin with, but that's exactly how this charger works. Very basic and easy to set up. You literally plug it in and then just push the controller down into the charger and it begins charging. I would highly recommend.

    By far one of the best charging stations you can get for you Dual Shock 4's. I picked up this charging station shortly after getting my second controller. This product works great with the dual shock 4 it's built very well and charges the controllers very quickly and makes it easy to "hot swap" your controller when the battery dies on the other rather than having to use the charging cable. I love the spring loaded design to start the charging. Very simple indicator while charging the controller flashes orange while charging and when charging is completed the controller simply stops flashing orange to indicate a full charge. This probably one of the best investments you can make if you have more than one controller.

    I bought this charger after purchasing two new controllers for my boys. So far it has worked great. Just an FYI, when you set the controller in the port, it will automatically slide in place. This acts like a stand. To charge the controller, you need to press down to lock it in place. You will hear a click. The controller will light up showing that It's charging. It doesn't seem to take too long to fully charge. When it is done, the light will go off. To take out the controller, press down on it again and you'll hear a click which will disengage the controller and allow you to take it off the charger. Hope this helps.

    I finally broke down to purchase one of these charging stations because the cord jungle from my PS4 was just becoming too much. I have always been hesitant in trying these things because I didn't want it to damage my handheld device. I'm happy to say, I was totally wrong about this particular unit. After doing tons of research and reading various reviews, I am truly happy with this item. It's super fast to set-up and super easy to operate. It charges quickly and definitely makes my shelving more sleek. I would definitely recommend this unit to anyone looking for an alternate charging method from the direct power cord through your console.

    Good Charger

    Pros: 1. I charges from the bottom of the controller so the micro usb port on the top doesn't get messed up 2. It uses an external power source so it doesn't take up a usb slot on your ps4 Cons: 1. It uses external power. i listed this as a pro and con because sometimes you don't have any outlets to plug a charger in 2. Since it charges from the bottom, you constantly see the blinking amber lights of the controller, which can be annoying if you're in a dark room Other than that the charging station is solid. It works as intended and hopefully it lasts a while without breaking.

    I personally hate the way the controllers are charged with the factory USB cables, so this device is the best thing out there. The standard USB port tends to go bad from charging it the normal way, but this charger uses the headset and external device connectors to charge it. These chargers have never let me down, and I’ve been using them since early 2014. The only reason why I bought a 2nd one is because I took my original one over to my friends’ house and left it there with my original launch PS4. Definitely worth purchasing if you’re a hardcore gamer.

    I was concerned that this product would not be the high quality that i expect my PlayStation products to be, to my surprise this product is solid, I like the way they sit in the cradle and you press them down to charge, no wires nothing to fumble with, nothing to insert into the controller, The design of this product also keeps the lights up instead of directed towards you. You can easily see the charging indicator lights when they are charging and that they are off when the battery is full. Also this charges FAR faster than the standard charging time that the usb ports do and doesn't use one of your limited USB ports which can then be used for other things. Great design excellent performance.
