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.

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.

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.

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.

I never write reviews but considering what i saw some people say on here i had to write this.

First of all i just got this at Best buy, it's on sale at the moment for $19.99. I WAS going to get Power Stand Charger for PS3 after going over every charger on this site. That one has almost flawless reviews and it stops charging the controllers when they're full, so as not to damage the battery. Then i saw one person on THIS item's reviews mention that this one also stops charging. So i figured I'll just get Sony's. I got enough lights lit up in my room anyway, i didn't need another and Sony's doesn't have any lights on the stand itself.

As for the stand itself, It looks alot nicer then i thought from the pic, and it's smaller then i thought too. The contours of it make it look real nice just about anywhere. I really recommend just getting Sony's brand of charger, especially right now while best buy's got it ten bucks cheaper.

As for why i'm actually wrtiting this review, I saw quite a few people mention that it's hard to get the controller OFF this stand. All i have to say to that is get some help. Learn to read the manual maybe? Like it says, tilt the controler forward before u lift it up..... I don't know what's wrong with the people that said that but my controller comes of the stand with ZERO effort. And it took a whole 10 seconds to take it outta the box and set it up / figure it out. >.
