    I love this charging station! It's convenient and easy to use. I like that it quits charging once the controller is fully charged. I was constantly switching out my two controllers to charge while using my console, but with the charging station my controllers are always charged when I need them and locked into the charger when I'm not using them. I thought it might be oddly balanced when the controllers are settled, but this little thing is sturdier than it looks. The controllers actually get locked in to charge instead of just precariously sitting there so there's no accidentally bumping the controller off the cradle unless you purposely didn't lock it in.

    This charger is worth the price because it does what it is suppose to and that is charge your controls. Pay attention to when you are going to place your controller in place to charge, look on the box to see how to face/place the controller. Make sure that the cradle is in the popped up position and then push it downward til it clicks in the down/lower charge position. If you do not do this then it will not properly fit to charge. Once in the correct position, the front light on the controller will turn white, then fade dim to off.

    This product, as you will see in almost any review of it, just works. You click your controller in, the light on your controller will glow orange until it's done. I click the controller and you are ready to go. You can charge two controllers at the same time. The only problem with the sand is that it is lightweight. That's only a problem because you have to press down on the controller to click it on and off and it might slide away from you on a slick surface. It's not a major problem. I solved the issues with two little pieces of mounting foam because I don't intend to move it around. If you buy this, you won't be disappointed.

    Best PS4 Controller Charging Station

    I purchased the DualShock 4 Charging Station when I bought my PS4. And Sony has finally made a competitive charging station. I originally had the Sony PS3 charging station and it was cumbersome and clunky to use. But Sony has finally made a charging station that works absolutely flawlessly. Simply insert your controller into one of the two sides, and then press down until you hear a click. The controller is now firmly connected to the charging station. It has an "Auto Off" feature as well. When the controller is fully charged it stops, which helps preserve battery life. I would highly recommend this charging station to any PS4 owner.

    Great Charger For a Family

    This charger is very easy to use. I used to be concerned about my kids breaking the usb connection on the front of the controller by being impatient hooking up or removing the controller from the cable. The way the controller fits into the charging cradle feels much more secure and less likely to cause damage to the controller port and the kids can slip controllers in and out of it easily. Plus having two controllers charge at once causes less arguments about who gets to charge a controller first. The wall plug is a more convenient and charges faster than the usb cable. I should have bought one of these earlier.

    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.

    When we first bought it there was a delicate learning curve on exactly how to set the controller into the charger. The first few times it was frustrating but once we got it down and now we always have a charged PS4 controller on hand. This is particularly important because my kids drain them with Minecraft, Knack and other kid friendly games but when I want to play Battlefield or InFamous I don't want a dead controller for obvious reasons. Yeah, that's a real bummer when that happens. So if you have multiple gamers in your household this is the charger for you!

    Bought this stand as I was tired of having to plug the PS4 controllers in with the chord and was tired of tripping on the chords. This was a great solution. You simply push the controller into the cradle and it charges and sits in the cradle. One think to look out for us that the cradle is raised up by visual inspection prior to placing the controller on. If it is in the down position, you will need to simply push it down and it pops up to accept the controller.

    One of my pet peeves is having cables all over the place, so for that reason alone I love this charger. Not only do I not have USB cables hanging out of the front of my PS4, but I can tuck the charging station away from view completely and keep everything nice and tidy. Of course the wireless headset with the USB dongle in the front threw a monkey wrench into that whole tidiness thing, but I've come to terms with it. It's a quicker charge than over the USB cable as well, and I also like the click in feature so that I know my controller is connected and charging before I walk away.

    This controller charging Bay works so great I am very pleased. After it's finished charging it automatically shuts off so you don't overcharge the battery. I've gone through so many USB cables , Using a standard USB micro cable to charge the paddles. The main thing I've noticed Using this charging dock is with a complete charge the paddle lasts Many hours longer than it would if I charged it with AUS B cable. It's Worse it definitely get it if you're having 2nd doubts, don't you won't be Disappointed.

    Forget that long usb charging cable that constantly gets in the way and ends up a tangled mess that ties you down to the console. Simply buy this charging station which not only cleanly docks [no fussing with port hole alignment necessary] your ps4 controllers but keeps them fully charged and at the ready so that your game play continues without interruption...because we all know the battery play life on ps4 controllers is far less than the wiiu controllers. A must have for any serious gamer!

    Well, I have to say that I always wanted one for the ps3, but never got around to buying one. So when the ps4 came out and I bought the three games I wanted. I felt that I better get one before the games started being pumped out. That was always the reason why I never got one for the ps3. Buy a charger or a new game; the game always won out. No offense to the price of the charger, 25.00 is a very good price. I think that is with tax included. But the ps4 wont have any 20.00 games soon. So buy it soon because It is pretty lame when you dont have a charge on you wireless controller.

    I was always kicking myself for not getting one of these for my PS3, and now that I have one for my PS4 I am really happy with it. The Sony version looks great and controllers lock in to let you know they are connected. I never liked the hassle or look of plugging the controller into the PS4 with clumsy cords and this eliminates all of it. I keep this tucked away on a shelf and I put the controllers there when not in use for hidden storage and charging. Well worth the small investment as the dual shock 4 has very poor battery life.

    I was not confident buying this docking station for my PS4 controllers since the USB port is so small that I even have a hard time plugging the cable. When I first place the controller on this cradle and push it to get it charged I realized how precise the thing is built. I don't have to wiggle around the controller to make the connection, it's just as easy as placing the controller on the dock and pushing it. That's it as easy as that. I haven't checked how long it takes to fully charge the controller but it seems to be fairly quick

    Got the 3rd party charger the first time tI dave 10$. The kind that have the small charging pegs you fit into the sharing station so you can "drop" it on the charger. That stopped being contact reliable so I picked up this item. Much better is an understatement! Pushing the charger down and locking it in place while charging was a smart move. With The old contact ones if they jiggled on the base they turned off. This one is more solid in every way and hasn't stopped charging for 5 months. Works lIke a charm. Pay the extra 10 $ it I'd worth it.

    I had something earlier that I thought would work. It didn't..After reading the reviews on this charger, I knew I had to get it. I brought this charger home and plugged it in. I made sure the controllers snapped into place by pushing them downward. The "light" indicater for letting you know when the controllers are charged, are on the actual controller. Keep the controllers on the charger when not in use, and they will always be charged and ready. The "light" indicater is: yellow-when charging. Blue-when the charging is complete/full.

    This accessory has been great for me in multiple ways. It saves space and does not require me to run more cords from my console to charge the controllers. It also looks great when set up next to the console. All you have to do is set it in the dock after playing each time and you have a fully charged control each time you play. When its done charging it disconnects so you're not wearing out the battery from excessive charging

    Best charger I have had for any Playstation system. It fits 2 controllers in the cradle. It can only fit 1 way... and you press down to and charger clicks to let you know its good. PS4 controller glows to show how charging is going and shuts off when fully charged. There are no wires to plug in, and it uses the existing metal contacts of the controller to charge it. I leave my controllers on it all the time, and have not seen any issues with battery life. Highly recommended if you only have 2 chargers... or buy 2 fo them if you have more than 2!!!

    It's a small unit doesn't require much space. Plugs into wall socket, so doesn't occupy one of your USB ports. Charges controller from the bottom headset jack, so you don't have to worry about damaging your usb port, like some charging cradles do. Has a spring loaded cradle, that retracts plug ins, so you can just use it as stand if you don't need to charge. Also seems to charge controllers faster the USB cable. I've used charging cradles that were garbage. Cough* Nyko Cough* This one isn't, very happy with it.

    Convenient Dual Shock charging

    This Dual Shock 4 charging station is very nice and convenient. The price was good and it is so much better than charging via the USB cables. You can charge 2 controllers at once. They snap into the charger and you push down to release them when you are ready to play. It is way easier to pop them into the charger than it was to try to plug the micro usb cable into the controller. Plus, it leaves the usb ports available for other devices and it's a nice stand to hold your controllers while you are not playing.
