I am a casual gamer and don't use my controller to the limit, and I was getting good times with AA batteries. But I wanted rechargeable batteries. And this was the best option out there.
The base have a great design (your controller always finish in the right position when you drop it), the batteries fit like normal ones in the controller, the charge time is good and it keeps your controller in a good place.
Price - Maybe the best value of the market
2 Batteries included
Your controllers charge when you are not using them
25 hours of battery life (I am getting 30+)
Led indicators of the charge
The led are too bright, is like a flashlight. They will turn off when the charge is finished, but if you have the charger in your room, like me, it will bother you.
I recommend this charger to everyone
TIP: I normally play for 3 or 4 hours, and put the controller back in the charger. If you are like me, once a month, disconnect the charge base and play until the batteries are fully discharged. this will be helpful for your batteries life.
If you want a new speedy charger look no further. This is the unit you need!
This is an awsome charge base with two charge packs. It is true that you have to use they're charge packs. It is also true that I have not had this charge base too long, but I absolutley love it. It is a great place to store your controller or controllers. The controller fits snugly in the charge base. Also, the lights in front of the charge base light up the color red when the pack is charging. When the pack is charged the light turns green. When the pack is fully charged, the light turns off.
I use my controller for the xbox 360 and the computer. When ever I set the controller down, I usually set it on the base and it continues to charge. Great Product.
This product is wonderful! It charges VERY fast and the batteries seem to have a longer life. I have yet to have a low battery during my marathon gaming sessions. It also keeps things organized, which has been an issue for me in the past with cables and batteries getting scattered.
The charging station encourages orginization and I wish had spent the money on this thing a long time ago. Once you get in the habit of returning the controller to the station after you're done tearing it up on XBL you're be throwing any and charging related items in the trash.
I even bought one for a friend at Xmas. He was still using the USB charging cord or batteries. It was a wreck around his TV! With this product that issue has been eliminated.
Buying this product is on absolute must for anyone with two controllers. It's an investment in my opinion and well worth every penny.
I read a few one star reviews on this product and would like to comment:
- One person stated to just use the MS hardware. That's fine for some, if you enjoy a mess of cables and short battery life. There was market demand, by adult console owners, for a space saving and organized approach to the gaming setup. NYKO has exceeded any expectation I could have had.
- Another stated incompatiblity with other batteries. The station is made for two controllers to dock and charge without the mess of wires. It is a space saver. When you have a place of your own you'll understand. Further - it comes with 2 long life batteries.Read more ›
This looked like a good compromise, plus there was a spot to place the controllers to hold them.
These are truly a good product. I have only used them for a couple months, so I can't really speak to the long term point of view ion them, but so far I love them.
They have a little square on the bottom of the battery that makes contact with tabs in the bottom of each base. So no cables, no swapping batteries. Just replace the controller in the cradle, ready the next time you play.
They charge relatively fast also. I usually take one out, use it for a day or two (say 7-10 hours of game play) and it is fully charged again within say a half hour, give or take.
This plugs into a regular 110 volt household socket, not the xbox. So no extra power drain, and the associated extra heat buildup.
Now if i could just buy two extra batteries that used the charger base for the other controllers, I would be happy. But so far I have not found the batteries separately.
I am extremely pleased with this at this point.
I liked the original one I had so much, I bought a second one for the second set of controllers. I have been using these for over a year now with never having a dead battery, no charging cables in the traffic lanes, just grab and play baby. When done playing, just replace in the cradle. Now all four controllers have a home. They are always charged, ready to go.
