Nyko Offers Effortless Controller Charging and Storage with the Charge Base 3 for PlayStation 3

Stylish Vertical Charger for Two Controllers Now Available at Retail

Los Angeles

Leading gaming peripherals manufacturer Nyko Technologies® today announced the Charge Base 3 for PlayStation®3 is now available in retail stores. A complete redesign of Nyko’s patented charging solution on PS3, the Charge Base 3 lets players rapidly charge two PS3 controllers while storing them on a convenient snap-and-go magnetic base. This stylish new vertical design of a best-selling item is a great way to keep the living room tidy while ensuring your controllers are ready for game time. Nyko’s unique, magnetic charging adaptors allow for easy charging, with no cables required.

With a sleek new look, the Charge Base 3 is a storage unit and charging dock for two PlayStation 3 wireless controllers. The Charge Base 3 includes a pair of lightweight clip-on attachments that fit all first-party PS3 controllers, allowing them to magnetically snap onto the Charge Base for simple charging and storage. The device features a small footprint and vertical orientation, allowing players to charge and display two controllers in a small space. The support can be folded up, making the Charge Base 3 very compact when not in use.

“As the first generation born with videogames grows up, the aesthetics of gaming accessories must mature too. With the Charge Base 3 we have created a charging dock that homeowners can be proud to display in their living rooms,” said Chris Arbogast, director of marketing at Nyko Technologies. “The Charge Base 3 is simple to operate, and looks great next to the sleek PlayStation 3 Slim.”

The dual port recharging dock is AC powered and plugs into any standard outlet. A hidden LED indicator illuminates when in use and indicates battery charge status. The unit is also collapsible for easy storage or portability.

The Charge Base 3 is available now at retail stores for $29.99.
