After getting my second DualShock 4 awhile back, I figured it was time to invest in some sort of charging station for the two. I didn’t want anything fancy or expensive and I didn’t want a product that I would have to attach something extra to my controller to make it compatible to charger. I stumbled upon PowerA’s product while browsing GameStop’s website and now that it’s in, I’m taking a critical look at it. Will it energize my trust in this unheard of company, or will PowerA’s charger leave me looking for another some more juice? Let’s take a look and see.
It’s not often that a product is so simple that it’s actually ingenious. Sometimes less is more and PowerA knocked this one out of the park. I hat gushing about products, but damn it, I really love this charger.
The device itself is pretty simple. Plug the charger into the wall, put the DualShock 4 into one of two cradles, and then press down. Boom, your controller is now charging. When it’s done, just press down on the controller and the spring-action mechanic will release the DualShock 4 so you can be on your gaming way.
When you watch the video of me talking about this product, you’ll see the amazement in my voice. I’m not saying that this accessory is going to change gaming or gaming accessories, but it’s just so simple that I love it. It doesn’t have any bells or whistles and it doesn’t need them, it’s a charger for Christ’s sake.
PowerA just gets it with this product. Some accessory companies think that they need frills to sell their products. Whether it be lights, or unneeded components, many companies don’t realize that delivering a product that simply does its job, and does that job well, is usually good enough.
As you can tell, this DualShock 4 charger is going to get a great score. I just really enjoy the product. It’s genuinely a solid being of hardware and as long as it holds up, which I really think it will, then I’ll be more than happy to continue to buy PowerA’s products well into the future.
PowerA’s DualShock 4 Charging Station gets a 10/10
