Xbox 360 Charge Base
Gone are the days of corded charging.
For anyone who has at least two wireless controllers, but hates either changing out old batteries, or plugging in your controller to charge the battery via USB, you should get this.
It charges your controller overnight, and the battery will last for up to 30 hours before it needs a charge. Once the batter is done charging, the charger stops so you don't have to worry about overcharging or wasting energy or whatever. Also, it has a USB port in the front, in case you need to charge your phone or mp3 player or what-have-you.
I got mine free with the PowerUp Rewards program points, but it's only $30 regardless, and it comes in both white and black. Do it. You'll be glad you did.
Buy it hours of playing time guaranteed
When I got this station it thought it would be pricy and it was ( 35 bucks) but it comes with two charging ports and a separate portable charger that connects to the station by USB connection which you can charge and play at the same time. If you just want to charge the controller on the station you can play about 10 or more hours straight and the charge status will have at least three of fours bars left and you would only have to charge the controller for about 6-8 minutes! This charging station is worth.
This product is amazing!
I bought the charge station today, and I already love it. It not only charges the controllers, but it stores them to keep them out of the way. Overall, great product
Lasts long, can't go wrong
I've had this charge base for over 2 to 3 years now and I can say that these batteries still last very long. The problem with most rechargeable batteries is that they hold a little less charge each time they become recharged, but I have yet to be interrupted mid-game with a prompt to reconnect my controller. Based on how long it has lasted, the price is also very excellent. Most products cannot be used for this long and still function properly, like the Xbox. The only thing I have noticed is that special controllers, like a pair of Halo Reach controllers I had, have a little trouble fitting the battery pack in, but it should never be a serious problem. Great product!!!
Batteries are a thing of the past for us gamers!!!
This product is an absolute necessity for each and every gamer. I never have batteries around my house so I always have to wait until I run to the store to pick the batteries up. This Nyko product changed everything! This has saved me a lot of money over the past year-or-so I have had it; it is worth the already little cost. You invest $30 for it, but the investment pays off because that is how much you will spend every 6 months on batteries. The battery packs feel lightweight and small compared to the standard Xbox360 pack, which is great. All-in-all, this is one product you cannot miss out on! Why are you reading this review? GO ORDER IT, NOW!!!
This device is perfect for me. I can leave my controller in the base and not have to worry that my battery will die during use. i plan on buying more of these. it is an extremely good price for the purchase.
this is and awesome charge base it is really fast at charging and i love it. when you have a controller with no back u can use this for the battery pack of the controller
I am so glad we bought this item. My son is constantly on the XBox 360 and buying batteries is a pain when he goes through them so quickly. We have had this charger for over a year now and never had any troubles with it. We just ordered another because someone stole his last one. :( Anyways, I highly recommend this charger to anyone and everyone who is a everyday player. You can't go wrong saving money on batteries, and the charge on the controllers lasts a long long time. Very thrilled with the performance of this item. Nyko, great job! Game Stop, great job for carrying this product!
The best charger
This is the best controller charger for any kind of remote. i mean the battery life on each thing is so long and nice and also the aditional feature where the LED light lights up when it is done charging. I just wanted to know if anyone know if it will work for the Halo 4 edition. i know it hasnt come out yet but still
BREAKS YOUR CONTROLLERS
This thing seems good at first, but I've had it for about 9 months, and it breaks my controllers. The battery pack is slightly large for the controller- small enough to fit in the controller, but bigger than a normal Microsoft battery pack. Basically what happens is this: the pack acts like a wedge and pushes on the base of the battery holder, causing it to start cracking over time. When my first controller (A limited edition silver controller) cracked, I thought it was because I bought it used from GameStop and thought the employees hadn't done a good job of inspecting the controller before accepting the trade in. It eventually cracked to the point that it won't even hold the batteries in, even with tons of duct tape. Then, my second controller started cracking, and I knew that it was the charge base, because I bought it brand new. Long story short, you may save a few bucks when you purchase these, but you end up shelling out another 50 when it breaks your controllers. Good luck if you decide to buy.
