PS3 USB AC power adapter,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: PS3 AC Adaptor (Accessory)
The PS3 AC adapter makes it possible to charge up to two wireless devices via USB 2.0, by plugging the adapter into a wall socket, then plugging the devices into the adapter. The PS3 AC adapter was manufactured with the PS3 console in mind but the adapter itself is pretty much universal and will charge most any device that will except USB 2.0 inputs. Once the adapter has finished charging the devices, it will stop sending energy. This is evident in Dualshock 3 controllers or handheld devices that have power LED indicators equipped on them. When the power LED lights stop flashing and shut off in most cases, you know your device is charged and ready for use. The adapter is most handy for PS3 wireless accessories in general since shutting off the PS3 means you can't charge any device attached to it. I have multiple PS3 accessories and I can't stand attaching USB cables to my accessories while i'm playing my PS3. It's very convenient then to be able to play to my heart's content and at the end of the day, be able to shut the PS3 off and still charge the various accessories I used. The AC adapter for PS3 comes in three separate parts out of the box that are easy to set up and easy to use. The adapter box portion of the package can be de-equipped at any time from the plug portion and can be substituted for use with multiple Sony accessories such as the PSP external battery charger, even the PSP AC adapter box itself. You can also USB charge your PSP handheld using the PS3 AC adapter though this would take longer than simply plugging your PSP into the wall itself. The AC adapter also contains a 6 foot USB-USB mini b cable that matches the one packed in with a new PS3 system so that you can charge any PS3 accessory away from the system itself straight from the retail package. It's fairly priced at around 20 dollars give or take and is a recommended accessory for PS3 gamers with multiple wireless devices.
