None that I can think of. This product works as advertised, and is the simplest PS4 Charger that I have tried.
1. For some, I suppose having a dongle always attached to their controller might be a negative. However, it is completely out of the way of your fingers, and in no way impedes your use of the controller. It is contoured to the shape of the controller, wrapping down and under, and attaches very firmly. Once it is on, it just looks and feels like part of the controller.
2. The dongles are easy to miss in the packaging. They are at the very bottom of the box, underneath the cardboard cage that the dock comes in. You basically have to rip the entire box apart to find them . . . at first, I thought they were not included in my package. They are there, just well hidden.
You get two small dongles that plug in snuggly to the mini-USB slot on each controller. Once the dongles are plugged in, you can just set your controller down on the charge dock and it begins to charge. A Small icon on the dock lights up when a controller is charging, and then turns off when it is done. It is incredibly simple to use, and works great.
Overall, I am incredibly happy with this purchase, and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a charging station for their PS4 controllers.

You plug a J shaped adapter into the microUSB adapter on the PlayStation 4 controller. That adapter has four gold plated tabs on it that mate with four pins in the charger base. When you drop the controller into the base, the controller starts to charge immediately. There's nothing to plug in or attach, it all happens super simple.
That microUSB adapter sits exactly in the center of the controller and doesn't get anywhere near your hand or fingers when using the controller. It fits clean and snug on the controller, so there isn't a chance that it will pull off or break once installed.
The base comes with 2 adapters. Inside the package, they are in a small box in the bottom of the package. It is easy to overlook them.
The one thing in the world I hate about using the PS4 to charge the controller is that stupid microUSB cable connected to that slick looking box. MicroUSB plugs were never designed to be plugged and unplugged frequently - or at least as often as I'm charging my controller.
This charging base is easy to use. On the front panel, when the unit is plugged in, a small Nyko logo lights up white (if you really hate the light, a piece of black tape will fix that). There are two controller icons just below that Nyko logo. When you place a controller into the base, depending on which slot is used, that icon lights up. Once the controller is fully charged the controller icon turns off.
I love that this has a standard 110V cord, no wall warts. The AC adapter is inside the charging base.
This thing works really well.Read more ›
It is a Very Easy Set up dongles go on the back of the Dual shock 4 controllers and don't get in the way of your hands while playing at all. they are a slightly tight fit which i believed caused an issue that i will talk about shortly. They charge base is perfect size and charges the controllers quickly but shuts off when they are at full charge so it doesn't burn up the battery in the controller. has a light indicator on the front of the base that lights up when its charging the controller and turns off when the controller is fully charged.
The only issue i have had with this product is the Dongles are such a tight fit i believe they caused a stress on the dongles and along the curve they have cracked and one of them broke open exposing the wires. I contacted Nyko about this issue just a few moments before writing this review and they have already responded thanking me for contacting them about the issue & will be forwarding it to the designers and will be sending me 2 new Dongles free of charge.
UPDATE 7/12/15: after using this product for awhile & many frustrations I've come to update my review.
This charger started out very well but in the last year has gotten to where it won't charge a controller completely... I have to constantly reposition the controller to get it to start charging & hope it continues charging after I walk away. So after dealing with these issues On a daily basis almost I have to drop my rating to 3 stars

Charges well, but the plastic is very poor quality. Mant times the plastic has chipped off the connecter peice, exposing the wires within. I've glued it back on multiple times. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Namine Arisa
