Sony PlayStation 3 AC Adaptor £2.99 (Prime) £4.98 (Non prime) Sold by Side Two and Fulfilled by Amazon

Found 5th May 2016
Ordered one myself as the price looks decent for an official adapter. Better than having all the cables hanging from the console when it is off to charge the controllers. Reviews on Amazon suggest it works on PS4, Ps Vita, Xbox controllers too if you use the appropriate cable and apparently it has two charging ports so can boost up the job.

If you don't have prime you can order it from the Market seller at £2.65 (that is what I did).

Thanks mate ordered the £2.65 one too. Would be great for PS4 charging. Can anyone confirm its safe to do. Not the same item but someone said a high speed charger broke their PS4 controller. Don't see any reason why this should not work though.

You are welcome mate. This is not a high speed charger. It might take even a bit longer to charge the PS4 controller than when you do it with console itself (based on reviews again).

Should just need to swap the USB cable over for micro version

And thanks OP, for £2.99 with next day delivery, can't go wrong

Is this not just a phone charger or does it make the job a bit neater?

I was never been able to use a phone (iphone) charger to charge my controllers. For some reason the controller does not take the charge from it?

Will give it a try on DS4, I tried on DS3 before and after a day of charging the controller was still off. But aside from that, this is only a simple charger with two USB ports.

Question:

Can this be used to charge PS4 controllers ?



Answer:

No, I have tried, does not work!

Well it definitely does not work with DS4 if you try to use the USB cable which is supplied with the adapter, does it?
I can't work out what benefit this provides. How does it differ from a USB charging cable?

It comes with it's own plug and can be plugged anywhere to charge the controllers. It is basically like a mobile phone charger with two usb ports. I'd reckon can be used for other electronics too such as phones, ipads etc (with the proper cable). Hope it helps. Here is an unboxing video I found for you:

The official Move charger is also £3 on Amazon mate. That has a stand and can hold both controllers, just saying.

Thanks for pointing that out. Will order this as well. I will use the AC one for the PS3 controllers and one of the move controllers. As the move one only holds 1 move and 1 navigation controller. Still a very good price for a new one.

Official gun attachment is only £5 as well. May come in handy for a few PS VR games.

Lol that's 'MY' review! It works fine. I have 2 of these
This is just a thought but why not charge your controllers of your laptop, works for me.
I've had them charging on anything that'll charge up android phones. My iPhone charger is a little more fussy about what it will charge.

I know with my Xbox One controller i can't let it go flat. If I let the controller go flat and try to charge it for some reason it doesn't charge, however if the controller still has enough battery to connect to the console, I find it charges normally. Bit weird mind.

Same happened when I tried normal chargers on DS3. It'd gone flat and even a day in charge didn't bring it back until I connected it to the console to charge up.

Strange stuff. Its more mildy annoying than anything. Frantically trying to find a few USB port round the back of my computer mid Rocket League game is less than ideal! X)

​it does not even charge ps4 controller as ps4 controllers use a different cable

It charges a PS4 controller just fine if you use a micro-USB cable (that comes with the PS4) rather than the included mini-USB.
Received mine after picking up from local RM depot. Thanks mixi, I am pleased with it. Also the cable supplied is a figure of 8 type lead which I am assuming will power a PS4 console? Have not tried but I say the above, because I managed to get a 1TB Star Wars console off the bay cheap but it's literally only the console. I will be very pleased if this works for £2.65 as that's even cheaper for a Sony Official cable than what the cheapest non-official eBay ones are.

Might get another for that reason - plus another PS3 charger cable is always handy!
