Power & Play Charging System for PlayStation 3
No headphone charger???
Bought the charger today, it is my second one. And i cant beleive that the charger now has the usb connect on the side DELEATED???? I did not purchase another brand becuse energizer was the only ps3 controller charger that would charge my headset also.. Got home.. FAIL!! NO USB TO CONNECT. energizer if your listening... Please find me the old style with the headset connect.

damaged both of my controllers
I used this charger for about 2 months no problem. After a month I opened a second controller I had bought previously and used the charger to charge both. Well today I got one of my controllers off the charger and it was low. Plug it back in charger and it was green meaning full charge. So I figured the controller needed replacing. When I tried my newer controller I had the same problem. I can't be lucky enough for two controllers of different age go out on the same day. Charger must have damaged them simultaneously

This was a fantastic product and does exactally as is says on the box.
Only problem is after a few months of use the top charging point stopper working.
Seemed to be a dry joint issue so I pulled it to pieces to find the legs that solder on to the small PCB had actually broken away from the USB plug casing the issue.
This is most likely caused by the wiggling to get the controller in and out of holder.
I most likely wont replace it with a new one as it will only have the same fate. Looks like its back to cables galor and a power USB hub.

I have not had a single problem with it, I removed the Bluetooth adapter and use the USB to charge my phone, product itself pysically feels weak, but doesn't diminish the performance

Less than a week of owning-won't charge
Lasted from Tues-Sun. I can't get any lights to come on, the charger appears to not be charging my controllers. Maybe there is a quick fix I don't know about?

We will start off with the basics this thing accepts 2 ps3 dual/sixaxis/possibly other brands of controllers (that use mini usb-a to charge from) that may be thicker as this has a wide area to connect the controllers. it also has a charge port off to the side and an adapter for the "OFFICIAL SONY PS3 headset"
the pro's it charges 2 Controllers and provides you with a visual que (color) as to the state of each controller charged (green light), charging (red) it comes with an attachment for "OFFICIAL SONY PS3 headset" (see modifications)
These items get used and abused and are expected to wear out and or break
cons:The controllers are suspended by only the mini usb-a charging port with no actually support of the controller... i see this as a design flaw in which the constant connection and dis connection of the controller will inevitably bend/ or break/ and or loose connection...
it comes with an attachment specifically for the "OFFICIAL SONY PS3 headset"
so this is a great starter charging dock it looks cool when you have 2 controllers and a pdp After glow headset charging oh yeah and that brings me to my next point
im not to picky when it cones to bluetooth headsets as long as there convient to maintain a charge... im cheap i bought 2 pdp after glow head sets (longer talk time over all ~7 hours per head set) i hate leaving my computer on and unlocked while at work so my prefeferials can charge so i modified the plastic housing of the headset adapter that came with this to charge my pdp head sets....
i give this product a 2/5 stars over all not to give it a low rating but because of the inharent design flaw in the design and implement of the charger ports supporting the entire weight of the controllers and the fact that i will have to modify the stand to fix this...

This product is garbage.
You have to position the controller correctly and shove it into the charger. The controllers rarely fit. I hope that they fix this problem with future models.

I bought this charger on 04-12-12, it is now 07-22-12. My chargers no longer charge unless you hold them in place. They seem to not fit tighty. I would tell everyone to find something different to charge your controllers.
