Xbox 360 and charging while playing,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: PS3 AC Adaptor (Video Game)
Just received the product. After 5 minutes of testing I can confirm it does 98% of what I wanted.
I have an original 60 gb ps3. I plugged my original six axis controller in and it began charging (blinking lights). I then tried to turn on the system and it didn't respond. Unplugged the controller and turned on the system. I then re-plugged in the controller and it could control he PS3 as normal. I did the same tests with a Dual Shock controller and got all the same results.
While the Dual Shock was still plugged in, I also plugged a Xbox 360 controller in. It began charging. I then could turn on the system (elite version) with it and use it as normal.
So the primary con is, you can't turn on a PS3 while the controller is running. I have confirmed you can use this to charge a 360 controller. Also, it did come with that extra ps3 charging cable (which is usually $10) so this was a steal at its $15 price.
My only other con is that it doesn't "sit on the wall". I'd rather have it connect to the wall like the AC to usb converter of an iphone charger and avoid the extra cord. But I was well aware of this issue before buying it and had found no alternative.
