Nyko Brings Consoles Together Through Customizable Controller Charger
With so many gaming systems available to gamers these days, it’s not uncommon to own multiple consoles. For console gamers, the big two are generally Sony’s Playstation and Microsoft’s Xbox. With owning multiple gaming systems comes owning many controllers, and controllers need to charge so you’ll also most likely have several chargers for those controllers. Well now we’ve got chargers all over the place taking up valued outlet space to charge all your various controllers. Thankfully it looks like Nyko has thought up a solution to the problem of too many chargers.
Nyko has created a product that may seem a bit underwhelming but is in fact kind of brilliant. The Charge Block by Nyko is a USB charging system that is designed for both Xbox One and PS4 controllers. The Charge Block is sold as either a single unit or in a duo pack for either system. Each unit is fully interchangeable using micro USB connectors to daisy chain together with other Charge Blocks allowing you to create a truly personalized charger for both Xbox One and PS4 controllers. No more chargers plugged in all over the place, the Charge Block allows you to consolidate all your controller charging needs into one convenient device. Each set comes equipped with the necessary tools to make your controllers compatible with the Nyko system.
The Charge Block for PlayStation®4 utilizes Nyko’s patented dongle system that attaches to the Micro-USB port on the controllers leaving the ergonomics and grip of the DUALSHOCK®4 controllers unchanged. The Charge Block for Xbox One™ comes with 1,200mAh batteries and replaceable battery covers. This allows for an easy drop and charge design, no cord, wires or plug needed.
The PS4 variant of the Charge Block system comes in a Solo or Duo pack of a basic black charger, the Solo goes for $14.99 the Duo for $24.99. The Xbox One variant comes in a Solo or Duo pack as well but offers a black or white version to match the Black and White Xbox color schemes. The Xbox Solo is priced at $19.99 and the Duo at $29.99.
For anyone looking to have all their controllers charging on one device, Nyko’s Charge Block might just be what you’re looking for. For more gaming tech news, check out the wireless option for the NES Classic, and remember to stay tuned to DFTG for all your gaming and tech news.
