Playstation 3 InCharge Dual Charge Station

FEATURED Playstation 3 InCharge Dual Charge Station

  • Works with both the SIXAXIS and Dualshock controllers
  • Charge one or two controllers at once
  • Does not interfere with gameplay
  • very light weight
  • easy to use, simply place the controller onto the base

The InCharge for PS3 charger allows you to simply place your Playstation PS3 Wireless Controller in the charger and charge it with ease. It works with both the SIXAXIS and the Dualshock controllers. The InCharge for PS3 is superior to other rechargeable solutions, it uses a contactless inductive charging solution rather than metal contacts to charge each PS3 controller. No more checking to see if the contact points are lined up correctly. No longer will you need to plug your wireless controller in, but if your battery is running low you can still charge it while playing by plugging into Playstation 3.

    Teknocreations incharge for PS3, February 1, 2010
    = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
    This review is from: Playstation 3 InCharge Dual Charge Station (Accessory)

    When I first bought this PS3 controller charger, I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread.

    Now I feel the need to rescind my feelings.

    Sony changed the power/charging requirements for their Dualshock 3 controllers at some point, which means the incharge charging station no longer works with all PS3 controllers.

    The problem is systemic of the incharge charger itself.

    The USB standard provides 5 volts, and while I don’t think it specifies current availability, it’s usually around 500mA per port. The PS3 controllers charge happily on USB ports that are equal to or exceed 500mA.

    I’m guessing the incharge controller is probably not able to output the correct amount of current to initiate a charge, something I plan to verify once I purchase an ammmeter.

    My guess is validated by the fact that the incharge AC adapter is rated for 5v 500mA. Some of that current is lost due to the electronics, and inefficiencies in the induction coupling, meaning the PS3 controllers wouldn’t have a full 500mA available to them.

    This would mean the incharger is defective by design.

    I sent them an email, and haven’t received a reply in 3 business days. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt, and give them an extra day or two, then I’m taking this up with the Better Business Bureau.

    I want to believe Tekno Creations is a reputable company, stand behind their products, and will back them up when they produce a defective product. It’s certainly not Sony’s fault – their controllers work just fine on any other charger that supplies the correct amount of current.

    This is why I usually only buy USB charging/powering systems that supply 1A (minimum). Unfortunately the package the incharger came in didn’t allow for me to check the current of the AC adapter, nor did it state so on the package.

    For now, I’ll consider this a lesson learned, but I still hope to get satisfactory resolution – induction-charging is exactly what I wanted – I don’t like having to plug and unplug USB cables – they wear quickly and are easily damaged, and I absolutely refuse to buy Nyko’s products.

    I ordered 2 of these to charge all 4 of my controllers.

    I keep trying different positions with the controllers and everything, but this product just doesn’t work.

    DON’T BUY THIS PRODUCT! WARNING! ITS DEFECTIVE!
