5.0 out of 5 stars Great accessory for those wanting a stand for their vita February 13, 2012
By MiRSD
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Vita Cradle is a very basic idea and is one of those accessories that some may feel "ripped off" by (for another example, see the PS3 vertical stand that many complain about it) and to tell you the truth.. it's not for everyone.

For those who would use this type of accessory though, the cradle is a must-have.

My first reaction to it was "Wow, this is light!" - I previously had a "Hori Portable Display Stand" for the PSP and loved it.. and using the new Vita Cradle I'm even more impressed.

The PSP stand was much larger (which was fine for a desk, but not really portable). It also weighed quite a bit more and had no electronics (it was literally a molded block of plastic to rest the PSP on). With that said, it worked great as a display stand for either storing the PSP when not in use, while charging, or for watching movies.

The Vita cradle improves on this idea by adding actual electronics to it (the center of the stand has a USB attachment that the vita rest on). The rear of the cradle has a Vita USB input and Line Out audio jack. You will need your own PS Vita USB Cable to use this stand for charging or syncing. While it has the ports on it, the cables are not included. It's also worth noting that the USB input on the back requires a USB cable (it would have been nice if they used a more standard cable design - something like a Mini USB cable - so that you can use your vita cable as a spare or to take with you for times you might need to use it (charging the vita on the go, etc..)

I was very impressed with just how light the stand is - despite having some electronics in it, it feels incredibly light (about the weight of an empty Vita game case).

4.0 out of 5 stars Get what you paid for February 23, 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Honestly I wasn't expecting much from the cradle, besides its a thing I can put my Vita into to charge it rather than leaving it on its back. However it would have been nice if, like the PSP Go, the screen transitioned to a clock face when plugged in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Add On For The PS Vita But Read Info On What It Has February 13, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Probably like the previous reviewer some people might think that the cradle comes with its own AC adapter power cable, it doesn't nor has it implied that it ever did. You must read the information of a product carefully and also check online about the product you can't just assume it's going to have something and get annoyed when it doesn't. The cradle is about the width size of a paperback book but the design feels sturdy enough though as expected the cradle is made of plastic it won't break easily unless you step on it or intentionally break it. The back of the cradle has the adapter port to plug attach the ac power adapter to as well as an audio output port for mini-speakers as well. So again while you do get the PS Vita cradle with an instruction booklet you will not get a power cable or anything else but no fears on the cable as you will get that with the PS Vita itself.

Nothing out of the ordinary for this accessory. Sturdy build and lovely finish. This is ideal for watching any videos on the Vita or using the Wake-Up Alarm app. It's a beautiful, secure way to charge your Vita while displaying it and/or using it. It has an input for external speakers (which I haven't made use of yet but is a nice feature to have).

*As it says in the description it does NOT come with an extra charger.*

It's a simple, worthwhile, and recommended accessory for any gamer with a Vita.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not really needed February 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
After I got used to the charging stand that comes with the 3ds, thought it would be nice to have one for the vita. I have to say, the 3ds is much easier to drop onto the stand and be sure that it is charging. The vita connection is more like an iphone 30 pin, so it feels like putting an iphone on a dock.

The angle that it holds it at is nice, and it looks pretty slick. Not sure if it is worth $20 but no other option if you want a stand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vita Cradle February 10, 2014
Verified Purchase
This is a good item to keep on your bedside table for "Wake Up Club". Also good for desks, tables, etc. It is pretty sleek looking, and holds the vita securely. It's a hard plastic, and doesn't feel cheap. If you have a vita, I would get this, my only complaint is I feel it should be cheaper, just under $10 or so. But a good accessory for the vita.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This cradle designed for the PS Vita is definitely sleek and handy. It has a small footprint on a surface (roughly 1/3 to 1/2 the 3DS charge cradle's) and stands the Vita at about a 30-degree angle from the vertical, which is great if you want to set it down to charge but watch a video or play a casual touch game. The bottom has grippy rubber component that work pretty well on most surfaces, unless you're a really enthusiastic touch gamer. The color scheme matches the Vita, with a polished metal surface on the front with the PS logo and plastic throughout. The plastic parts don't look that indestructable, but that's probably not going to be an issue other than with travel.

The back panel where you plug in your Vita's adapter also has an audio-out port. Though this isn't the most convenient location if you're trying to plug in headphones, it's better if you're using an audio-out to a stereo, and putting it in the back also improves the look of the dock overall.

As other reviewers have noted, the dock does not come with a second adapter and charge cable. Personally, since I don't usually cart my chargers with me, this isn't a big deal. I doubt many people will find it that inconvenient. (Let's face it: how lazy are you if you throw a fit when you need to go fetch a charger from the next room?) Sony at least had the decency to make the charger a standard USB on one end, so buying just a (PSP-specific of course) USB cable would be a workable solution paired with a computer. [Edit, via comment: Yes, I confirmed that the USB cable only charges when connected to the official Sony brick or when connected and completely powered off to a PS3 or PC USB port. Apparently the Nook charger works, but I don't own one.
