PS3 Energizer Power & Play Station
overall skip this and get the official Sony one
this charger WILL break your controllers, in fact all PDP/energizer PS3 chargers will because they all use the same connectors. in the 1 year of my owning this thing i went through 3 controllers, all because this thing makes it hard to connect the controllers and eventually breaks the controllers USB port. if you want a controller charger get the official Sony one, that one wont break your controllers.
ratings: performance: 10 it does what it says it does
value: 1 i spent more money on replacing controllers than the item actually costs
design: 1 the thing makes it hard to connect the controllers all because it uses the usb port and not an attachment like the Sony one
overall skip this and get the official Sony one, you wont be sorry
Worked well for two weeks then stopped working
I bought this as a present for my brother. He was able to charge his controllers but then the product just stopped charging both of his controllers altogether.
only good for about a year or so
When i got it it worked perfect but now for about 2 years the thing goes on and off and when i put it in when it is low battery it turns green
Looks very nice but chargers are funky.
This product is very nice looking but the charger says its charged when i know its dead and wont charge at the same time.
Good Product but doesnt last
i was going to rate this product at the top due to the convenience factor and how great the indicator lights were, however after one year of use the product no longer works. I figured since it was a branded product of Energizer that i could trust this but i guess not. I read many reviews and questions that it was okay to leave it on the base when not in use but i still unplugged the rear cable just to make sure when not in use. within the first year the green lights would come on automatically even though the battery warning lights and PS had shown my controllers to be almost dead. After another month i couldnt get the lights to stay on red to charge and wiggling them took too much time before i got irrirated. I love the convenience factor of wireless remotes but this charge stand sucks horribly. I will stick with alternating my controllers with the original cable till i can find a solution i like. I dont think someone should have to buy charging dock after charging dock. give us products that last!
Just plain sweet.
This charger is awesome, it's easy to just throw two controllers on it, and if you have usb cables (which you should) you can do more. The best part is it's lightweight enough that I can hold a controller while it's mounted on this thing so my lazy butt can sit on the couch and still play games while the controller charges. XD
Worthless after 3 months
I bought this charging station so I wouldn't have to charge my controlers with my PS3. It was really good for the first 3 months but after that it wouldn't charge my controler unless i applied pressure to the controlers while charging. I used new controler as well.
The PS3 Energizer Power & Play Station is great. I like everything except that sometimes it can take you up to a minute to get them to plug in and start to charge. Other than that I have no complaint and I like how it can house 2 controllers and a PlayStation Headset.
this is good it chargers fast has a cool design and a USB holder and not one but two controller holders and if the light is red it is in charge and green it's fully charged but i say the only problem with the nice device is that after about 3 or 4 months it starts to get a little loose and that just the only thing and when it get loose it still good but u have to take real good care like people there's last 2 months well mine lasted 4 because i took my time to but the controller on and stuff while some other people just hurry and breaks like they say take care of your stuff and it will last longer
It works, plain & simple
Have owned this for about 3 years now and am very satisfied. It can be a little tricky sometimes to slide the controller in, but gets easier with practice and this is the only reason I wouldn't rate it a 10. The green and red lights look cool in my TV cabinet. The headset recharger is a cool add-on, but I doubt many actually own the sony branded headset, but the USB ports are very handy for recharging my headset(jawbone 2) as well as my Logitech universal remote. Also having the option to recharge 4 controllers at once is clutch. 2 other friends have purchased after seeing mine, and they are equally pleased with the product.
