    More Valuable Than Originally Expected!

    If I could the Sony PlayStation 5 DualSense Charging Station more than 5 out of 5 stars I would! Never did I think it would be this valuable, but it is. If you're like me as of late, you've been spending countless hours on your PS5 and realize these controllers don't last forever! I have had previous charging stations like in the past for other consoles, but none this simple. There's no fumbling with connections or wrestling to get the controller perfect in the cradle. It literally just rests there, makes contact and boom instantly starts charging. Since I have two PS5 controllers I make sure now there's always one in the cradle for easy plucking when needed during the heat of combat (I play Call of Duty Cold War A LOT!). If there was a downfall, it would be there's a long power cord for this (two halves actually with a small brick). However, I can overlook this as it free up not needing to waste a USB port in your PS5 console and you can conveniently charge your controllers anytime or have them resting on charge without the intervention of your PS5 console needing to be on. Winner, winner chicken dinner!

    Great Addition for Hardcore Gamers

    Love how it and all the other PS5 accessories match the look of the console. The controller seems to have around 10 hours of use time even with haptics and triggers being used in the games so I dock my charger at the end of the night and never have to worry about a dead controller. The station seems to charge pretty quickly and the controllers easily dock while looking good on display too.

    Good charging station.

    It does what it design for charging two dualsense controllers . Sturdy I put the controller down on it and leave it . Bought it because I bought the red dualsense and did not want to be charging one at a time .And this does the work.

    Simplistic

    I have had the DualSense Charging Station since it came out. It has worked flawlessly for me. Even my 5 & 6 year olds can easily put my PS5 remotes on it to charge them. I like the fact that I don't have to mess around with cords and that I don't have to worry about the wear and tear that a cord can cause.

    Good Value

    The cable Sony provides with the PS5 is extremely short. This remedies that problem, now I can sit on my couch whenever I need to charge while playing without an issue. Also used $5.00 off with my points, costing me only $4.99

    USB_C Cable for Multiple Devices

    A great addition for people who connect their controllers to the gaming console. Also if you own a Nintendo Switch like me a great cable to connect it to the charger while playing without the fear of the battery running down. Have used "Play and Charge" cables for along time and really pleased that I can use this particular cable (USB-C) for a Playstation 5, XBox Series X/S controllers or just to keep the Switch charged up.

    Unsecured, loose connection and doesn't charge

    I really wanted to like this cable. The length was what I was looking for and allows me to charge the dualsense and use it at the same time at a far enough distance away from the tv. It also matched the colors of the ps5, made specifically for the ps5 and comes with a cable tie as a bonus.

    But there was barely any audible and tactile locking click after plugging in the usb type c end to the dualsense controller. That wouldn't be so bad if it didn't stop charging after a few minutes of gaming, but because it wouldn't lock/connect securely in like the shorter charging cable that came with the ps5, it would constantly loosen by itself overtime and come out just far enough (.5mm) to not charge after minimal movement. I would have to readjust or reinsert the cable after every couple minutes of gameplay or press the ps button to verify on screen if it was charging still.

    Just to see if perhaps it was my controller's type c port causing the unsecured connection and not the cable, I tested the cable on my tablet and phone and found the same result.

    I saw a lot of good reviews, maybe I unfortunately just got a bad one that won't stay plugged in. And if it won't stay plugged in and charge that essentially beats the purpose of this charge cable. One would have to stay as still as a statue while playing to make sure it stays charging and remains connected.

    I would not recommend trying to update the controller's firmware with this cable as it may unplug easily while updating and I guess possibly brick the controller if that's even possible. And if I recall correctly, the updating screen said "do not unplug" and a loose cable connection can do just that.

    In addition to that issue, I found due to the thicker cable size, it was weighing down the front end of the controller. The added weight wasn't a worry for me as much as the strain over long periods the cable may exert on the type c port on the dualsense controller vs. a thinner cable like the one that came with the ps5. I noticed the angle of the type-c port slightly angle downwards a couple degrees after I plugged in the cable due to the thicker cable slightly increasing the cable weight compared to the original cable that came with the ps5.

    These controllers aren't cheap so I rather go without the undue strain on the port to preserve the longevity of it as much as possible.

    So due to the fact it doesn't charge more than a couple minutes while gaming from the cable falling out, I'm going back to the original shorter cable for now and this one's going in the drawer as a backup backup.

    Maybe I'll give the next iteration of this cable another shot if they fix these short comings. And, or possibly even add back what the ps4 version of this cable had like a blue led indicator in the cable to indicate it's charging and the cable braided for extra durability. It seems like a slight downgrade from Insignia's previous generation charge cable for the ps4.

    I'm sure though if you just intend to use it to connect to the ps5 and charge in sleep mode it should be fine as long as no one slightly jostles it or the controller. For my use case, I just intended to use it as a the name of the product suggests, a "play and charge cable."

    Excellent Performance

    Design was the main reason I went for this charger, I mean so far its the coolest looking imo. As far as charging goes, it takes about 2hrs 30 min to fully charge if you dock it the moment you are notified that the battery is low. Ther are no light indicators on the dock itself (which I dont mind), you just go by the yellow/amber pulsating light on your dualsense till it goes off on fully charged state. The only dowside is that when you try to set it on its cradle it can sometimes be a flimsy experience to set in its slot. But that design with the PS symbol makes all the difference compared to the other docks out there.

    Works flawlessly. Just as good as Sony brand

    Works flawlessly. It's easy to drop the controllers in this cradle and charge them. I've been using it for weeks with no issues and charges quickly thanks to USB-C.

    The charge indicator lights on the front are very useful. You can tell when it's docked/charging/full at a glance.

    Make sure youbhave a USB-C charging brick or the port on the front of your PS5 is available for this

    Definitely save the money and buy this one

    Solid PS5 Controller Charger

    This charger by Insignia is a solid PS5 controller charger. The controllers are held firmly in place when mounted. It does take a little effort to get the controllers in the proper orientation to slide onto the charging prongs though. I am very happy with it so far.

    Works good. It took me a second to realize how the controllers were supposed to sit in the unit. The glow isn't bright as most chargers, and this is a good thing. No problems as of yet, just plug and play.

    It does what you think it does!

    This does a great job of charging up the controllers without needing to potentially damage the USB C port.

    I destroyed a DualShock 4 this way and relied on one of these chargers a few years ago. I’ll always use this to charge my controllers going forward.

    I’d recommend plugging it into an independent power source, rather than the PS5. I’ve noticed that it will sometimes not charge the controller in power saving mode for some reason.

    Awesome unexpected product

    I needed a PS5 charging stand so I went to Best Buy for one however I was planning to buy the Playstation one originally. It was sold out and this was in stock so I purchased it and to my surprise it's an awesome product! It definitely is cheaper than the Playstation one so that's a plus and it works just as good. I love how this product displays two lights which indicate the charge percentage for both controllers.

    Organized & Useful

    Pictured are both the Xbox and Playstation models respectively, plus two Xbox Series X controllers, and two Dualsense (Playstation 5) controllers. Additionally, each console’s official headset. Unfortunately, these do not come with AC Adapters, instead only USB charging cables. So make sure to have a USB outlet of some sort handy, or a USB Hub like I used. PROS: Fast charge, good for organization and presentation, magnets are strong. CONS: Headphone stand is detachable, but that also means the area it occupies sticks out like a sore thumb, whether it’s attached or not; No way to turn off LEDs; making sure the controllers are plugged in correctly is almost more trouble than it’s worth.

    Awesome Charger

    Awesome charger that uses magnets to swap between different controllers. Comes with 2 usb C and 2 micro usb magnets so you can charge any controller you have. The LEDs are a added bonus as they match my alienware monitor lights and the PS5 lights. LED indicators on the front panel so you can see when your controllers are done charging. My 2 PS5 controllers fit very well into the magnetic attachment and you can literally pick up the entire unit by the controller that's how good the magnets are. Very pleased, time will tell how it holds up.

    Worth the money

    I like this charging station especially since I can use it with my PS4 controllers & PS5 if I ever can get one. A few minor things kept it from a 5 star.

    When you take a controller off the stand the light stays green. I wish it would go off indicating that the spot is empty. The light does turn blue when charging.

    Also the headphone rest doesn't lock into position. So it starts sliding in and out of the main base. Just a minor thing though.

    Awesome.

    I needed a good looking but quality product for my controllers and this fit the bill. I didn't end up using the headphone stand but my son took it for his. The build quality is great and the amount of different controllers it fits is amazing. This is due to small inserts that fit in your respective controller's recharge port (type C for my PS5, type B micro for my Xbox). This thing will literally charge any controller you have. I also wanted to ask a question to the customer service and was pleasantly surprised when I received a response within less than 20 minutes! I will definitely do business with this company again.
