Good value-priced charger base – Dual Controller USB Charging Cradle/Dock for PS3 Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Free your controllers from your PS3. Using this charger base plus any USB wall charger rated for 300 mA or higher, you can now charge your wireless DualShock3 controllers anywhere you like, no need to tie up a USB port on your PS3.
Cons:
It takes a bit of practice to learn how to insert two controllers into the charger base at the same time such that both actually charge. I find that it is necessary to remove both controllers from the base, and reattach them within seconds of each other if I want to have both actually start charging (as indicated by the on-board LEDs on the base).
Other:
The design of the base could be a little bit better to help guide the controller into the connector easier; that said, for this price, that's about the only real complaint.
Bottomline:
Great deal. If you have two DS3 controllers for your PS3, get this along with a USB wall charger, and you're set.
