The Memorex PS3 Quad controller charger Review

The Memorex PS3 Quad controller charger

Memorex of CD-R, and for you old people like me, VHS cassette fame, have manufactured a pretty nifty controller charger for the PS3. With this contraption you can charge 2 controllers and 2 Move controllers at the same time. The normal Ps3 controllers plug into two slots on the front of the device, and the move controllers plug into holsters on both sides. It works pretty well, the coolest thing being the charging light on the front. Red if it’s charging, blue when it’s done. It’s pretty quick too.

It’s price point, around $35, makes me consider the following: If you have only 1 PS3 controller, then this probably won’t be worth your while. This product will mainly benefit those with PSMove and extra controllers. For everyone else, just stick with simple USB to console charging.

Pros:

Handy way to charge multiple Dualshock and or Move controllers

Cool lighting feature lets you know when charge is done.

Won’t overcharge your controllers thus depleting battery life.

Cons:

A bit pricey, probably not worth it to those who only own a single controller.

Rating: 9/10

Dual Controller Charging Kit for XBOX 360 Review

memorex XBox_Dual Controller Charging Kit

If you are an Xbox 360 gamer, you know all about the issues of using the wireless controller. If you go the battery route you can find yourself not only wasting time switching out the batteries, but also spending a lot of money replacing them. On the other hand, if you go the recharge route, while a better option, sometimes even those batteries do not last as long as they should and you still have to charge them using the 360 cable connected to the unit.

I recently got my hand on the Memorex dual controller charging kit and it works perfectly for not only charging my controllers, but storing them as well. The unit itself is lightweight and is pretty stylish as well. Since I have a black Xbox 360, it fits perfectly with the style. The charging kit comes with two of its own rechargeable controller batteries, which is great because mine have been undercharging for a while now.

How it works is take the rechargeable batteries and plug them into your controller, then you can mount your controllers onto the unit’s base and there they not only sit out of the way, but charge as well. There are LED status indicators that show red when the batteries need charging and blue when they are fully charged.

The kit costs around thirty bucks, which is not bad since it comes with the two batteries as well. You can find it on their website and I am sure online as well. The unit comes with the charge station, which can be placed vertically, or horizontally, two batteries and the AC power cord. It does not take long to charge the batteries and once done, the charge last just as long as the official rechargeable batteries from Microsoft.
