Nyko Recharge Docks for PS3 and Wii Controllers

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  January 10, 2007

I recently reported on Joytech’s rechargeable controller dock for the Wii. Now, Nyko is getting into the game with charging cradles for both the Wii and the Playstation 3’s SIXAXIS controllers.

NYKO Wii and PS3 Charging Cradles

Filling a void in both Nintendo’s and Sony’s product lines, the docks allow you to neatly recharge your controllers without unsightly cables running between the controllers and the consoles. Since the PS3’s controllers are already rechargeable, all you need to do is drop the controllers into Charge Base PS3 and go. The PS3 version can hold and charge up to 4 controllers at once. The Wii version holds two controllers and includes two NiMH rechargeable battery packs that also have a nice rubberized backing, presumable to improve your grip on the Wii-mote.

Pricing and release dates are still forthcoming.
