What do you do when your DualShock controllers lose their charge? Do you wait for both the controllers to charge up fully before going back to your game? Sure, everyone likes a break or two in between their games. However, charging both the controllers one-by-one is time taking and tends to steal the picture’s excitement element. If you agree with me, it’s time you invested in quality charging stations or charging docks for your PS4 DualShock Controllers.
As you may have expected, these charging stations let you juice up two controllers parallelly. Moreover, they are small and compact and fits well into small spaces. At the same time, they let you avoid the messy wire situation as you have to deal with just one cable at a time.
So, if you are in the market looking for quality charging docks for your PS4 DualShock4 controllers, here are our recommendations. Let’s get started.
1. Dobe PS4 Controller Charger
The Dobe charging dock doesn’t use the Micro USB ports at the top. Instead, it uses the extension (or EXT) port at the bottom. So, all you need to do is align the ports and place your controller at the top and the rest will be taken care of. At the same time, the USB ports on your PS4 will remain free.
Moreover, a singular power source means you will only use a single wall outlet instead of two.
It’s durable and quite a few users have praised this charging dock for the same. Out of the fifteen hundred reviews on Amazon, it has managed to amass an average rating of 4.5-stars out of 5.
2. Yccsky Twin Charge Docking Station
It charges quickly, and if we were to go by the company’s claims, they could fully charge the plugged-in devices in around 2.5 hours.
The design is mostly the same. You get a vertical dock that plugs into a USB power source. The Yccsky charging dock doesn’t come with a USB-power cable and you will have to get your own.
Do note that the Yccsky charging dock is not durable and tends to break in the long run.
3. Beboncool PS4 Controller Charger
As mentioned above, the Beboncool charging dock is quite popular on Amazon and raked up around twenty-one thousand user reviews at the time of writing. Out of these reviews, it has an average rating of 4.7-stars. As per Fakespot’s reviews, around 80% of the reviews are trustworthy and can be relied upon.
People love this charging dock for its easy to use nature and its durability. Above all, it’s priced just under $15 and is affordable as well.
The company claims that the Beboncool charging dock also bundles a chip to prevent overcharging.
4. PowerA DualShock 4 Controller Charging Station
It’s worth noting that the PowerA charging station is one of the few PS-certified charging stations. It’s in the same price bracket as the one above and similar to it, it promises a good charging speed. And provided you take good care of it, it will last you a long time. In fact, quite a few users have vouched for its durability and sturdy build.
Again, it comes with an auto cut-off mechanism. It will shut off automatically when the charging is complete.
5. AmazonBasics Controller Charging Station
Another thing worth mentioning about this controller is that it ships with an AC adapter, thereby freeing up the USB port on your PS4 console.
In terms of looks, it doesn’t pack much. However, it gets the job done. Though it has received favorable reviews from users, some have complained that it can be difficult to clip the controllers to the Micro-USB port.
6. HyperX ChargePlay Duo
Like most controllers in this list, this PS4 charging station also uses the EXT port for charging. All you need to do is clip it down before you retire for the night, and you will wake up to fully charged controllers in the morning.
It charges two controllers at once.
The only issue is that the AC power adapter that ships with this one have a bigger form factor and will likely block the adjacent outlets. If that’s not a concern for you, you can check it out.
Power It Smart!
When it comes to PS4 controllers, a lot of things can go wrong. For one, the USB ports at the top may fry over time. In such cases, it’s best to rely on charging stations like the ones above.
Besides that, you will have two fully charged controllers simultaneously, and that’s enough reason to pick the multiplayer game right from where you left it.
