    ps3 Review: Nyko Charge Base PS3

    Nyko Charge Base PS3
    Manufacturer: Nyko
    Site: Buy from Amazon
    Price: $16.98

    Overview : Rapidly charge and stores 4 SIXAXIS™ controllers for the Playstation®3 with the Charge Base PS3. The Charge Base plugs into any standard wall outlet and is compact enough to fit in any home entertainment setup. Once plugged in, the Charge Base is able to store and charge up to 4 SIXAXIS™ controllers for the PlayStation 3. Utilizing Nyko’s patent pending technology, all 4 controllers will be charged simultaneously through the Mini USB ports, leaving all 4 of the console’s USB ports free while eliminating the need for $#@!bersome wires. The Charge Base is the ultimate charging and organizational accessory for the SIXAXIS™ controller.

    Features :
    • 4 Controller Ports: With 4 built-in USB ports the Charge Base can simultaneously charge 4 SIXAXIS controllers
    • AC Powered: The Charge Base plugs directly into the wall, leaving the USB ports on the PS3 free and the console tangle free.
    • Compact: Sleek compact design fits in any home theater set up
    • Convenient Storage: Easily and conveniently stores and charges 4 SIXAXIS controllers with no additional wires
    • Rapidly charges 4 SIXAXIS controllers simultaneously
    • Store and charge all your controllers in one place
    • Conveniently place in any home entertainment center
    • Powered by a standard wall plug, no USB port required
    • Compact design
    • Keep your controllers fully charged and ready for use

    Quality/Usability : To charge your SIXAXIS controllers, you have to plug them into a USB port whether it be on your computer or PlayStation3. But in order to charge, there needs to be power and you have to have your computer or PS3 turned on.

    With the Charge Base, it doesnt need to plug into a USB port. It actually plugs in to the wall outlet. So you can charge your controllers anytime you want. To charge up to four SIXAXIS controllers simultaneously, simply insert your controllers on to the mini USB ports on the Charge Station and it will automatically charge your controllers. On the top of the Charge Station are four LEDs. These LEDs will let you know when the controllers are being charged. Red means it is currently charging and green for when it is ready.

    Charging takes approximately 2 hours to fully charge your SIXAXIS.

    Conclusion : Overall, the Nyko Charge Base PS3 is a convenient charger. It doesnt require any USB ports or cables and can charge up to four controllers at a time. Charge time is about 2 hours to fully charge. But if you dont have four controllers, you have two empty, useless spots.

    Nyko has released a new Charge Base for those who only only two SIXAXIS controllers. They have released a Charge Base 2. Instead of four controller ports, it has two.
