Conveniently store and charge your DUALSHOCK 4 controller with Nyko's Charge Block Solo for PlayStation 4. The Charge Block Solo for PlayStation 4 utilizes Nyko's patented dongle system that attaches to the Micro-USB port on the controller leaving the ergonomics and grip of the DUALSHOCK 4 controller unchanged. This allows for an easy drop and charge design, no cord, wires or plug needed. Connect multiple Charge Blocks together from the same or different platform to create your own customer charger. The power cable for the Charge Block doubles as a charge cable. No more low batteries during extended gaming sessions. The low-profile design allows for the Charge Block to fit easily in most entertainment centers while the LED charge indicator keeps you notified of the charging status. Connecting more than 2 Charge Blocks require a USB 3.0 connection
Top customer reviews
-- Easy drop-in charging; no need to worry about whether or not you have aligned the plug and the socket correctly
-- Completely unobtrusive dongle which you'll never notice while using the controller
-- Multiple charge blocks can be attached for a custom charging station
Here's what I do not like about this charger:
-- The lights are way too bright. Does it even need lights?
-- Nyko customer service is non-existent
I received a couple of these (the Charge Block Duo pack) as a gift, and was really excited about the prospect of being able to easily charge my controllers without having to run a USB cable from my console, which is mounted on the wall across the room. Unfortunately, one of the included dongles was bad, which I determined by process of elimination. I e-mailed Nyko to ask for a replacement dongle, which I thought would be easy and fast; it's a tiny piece of plastic which doesn't do anyone any good without the rest of the components. After a few weeks: Nyko did not respond, so I just bought a replacement from Amazon.
Once I finally got two working where I wanted them, I noticed that my bedroom was no longer dark at night; these things are super bright! I don't know why Nyko felt the need to try and "improve" upon the Dual Shock 4 charging indicator; before these my controllers would gently pulse with amber light until they were done charging, and then went dark when fully charged. Nyko's Charge Block takes a nearly opposite approach: rapid, bright-white flashing LED bars, followed by continuous, full-on brightness when fully charged. My initial solution was to apply electrical tape to the light bars, but adhesion to the Charge Block is not great, so light still shines out at various places. The best solution was black acrylic paint; a fully-charged controller atop the block let me see all the places where light crept out of the box, and I just kept applying paint until all the light was gone.
(I wanted to try and pry the thing apart to see if I could address the problem from the inside, but was worried about totally ruining the block because I couldn't find any screws or a good place to start prying.)
If Nyko could put an on/off switch for the light on the next generation of these: they would basically be the perfect controller charger. This would also have been at least a 4-star review if they had responded to my e-mail and just sent me a single, tiny, replacement dongle which probably costs pennies to manufacture.
So, if you get these and all the parts work: it does the job pretty well!
If you don't care about super bright LED bars in the location where you'll be charging your controllers: this is probably the best charging solution you can find for the Dual Shock 4 at this moment.
I'd recommend getting this!
