5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, Simple, Low Profile August 19, 2011

This is pretty sweet.

Works great.

Very simple and low profile design.

Excellent quality, sturdy built.

Was thinking about the Playstation 3 Energizer Power & Play Charging System but happy with my decision

The thing that turned me off from the energizer charger is that the controllers flop around and it's kind of flimsy.

One thing that no one has mentioned or is not pictured here is that this comes with 2 clips made by Sony.

The clips actually attach flush with the controllers and stay on.

They are what hold the controllers in place while on the stand.

It's actually pretty cool.

The clips kind of add a round funky look to the controllers, but they are really low profile.

I was worried that I would have to keep these next to the charger but these stay on pretty well and look good.

Definitely happy with that part.

The one bad I can come up with is that I am not sure--and the manual doesn't
say--whether after being fully charged the stand shuts off the power to the controllers
so it does not over charge/ruin the battery. This is a deal breaker and needs to be addressed.

This charger is the same excellent quality as Sony's PlayStation Move Charging Station, but for your DualShock or Sixaxis controllers. One thing to note, this is not compatible with silicone controller sleeves, even the Sony licensed sleeves. A controller sleeve can be stretched to allow the charging connector to fit properly, but there is not enough clearance to allow the controller and sleeve to fit into the charger.

I've also purchased Sony's Wireless Keypad, and I'm sorry to report that it cannot fit on the controller while the charging connector is connected, even though the keypad does not connect to the USB port of the DualShock controller. I leave the keypad unattached in general due to this, and it now seems silly when I could otherwise use any Bluetooth keyboard. I already had the Logitech Cordless MediaBoard Pro, and I enjoy using it more.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fragility of clips & their unavailability a problem August 6, 2013
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The charging station basically works but as others have pointed out, it is completely impossible to get replacements for the clips that attach to the controllers. It is also fairly easy to break them, especially for a child. When you remove the clip from the controller you have to pull/slide it straight out, such that the USB plug slides cleanly out of the controller. Unfortunately if you don't know that, or are not paying attention (most kids), the inclination is to slide a fingernail under the clip and try to pry it off. This breaks the USB plug. We lost one because a friend of my son's tried to take it off to synch the controller with a different PS3.

Without the clips the charging station is useless.

This is a major product issue and customer service failure by Sony. The unit should probably be packaged with 4 clips, not 2; and replacements should be available at some reasonable cost.

Like most Sony products, these chargers are great quality and easy to use. I am glad I got them, they are much nicer than the cheap ones my friend has.

You cannot use the mini keyboard on the controller with these chargers, though, you must remove it to put the charger adapter on.

Before I would have my ps3 with cables dangling and controllers would be hanging off shelf. This Charging station solved a lot of issues; organizationally and usage.

When I'm ready it's ready. When I'm done i just slip it back on the base and charging commences. Pretty sweet.
