5.0 out of 5 stars Great accesory. 16 Aug 2012
By M. Page
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I use my old PSP to play videos at work when I am doing particularly mundane tasks. I wanted to use the Vita but it's tricky as the power goes in directly under the middle, rather than at the side like the PSP. So when I saw this I thought it would do the job. It does. Fits in very snugly, perfect angle, light yet feels solid on the desk. I was slightly dubious about the silver front but with the gloss black Vita in it I think it looks fantastic too.
Two points. To get a charge from a USB connection you must enable a setting in systems. Go to Settings, System, and make sure 'USB power supply' is ticked. The Vita charges very slowly through USB and when I have done it before the advice was to turn the Vita off to get the best charge. I will admit I'm not sure how it will charge while watching videos. Time will tell.
Secondly, the audio socket. As another reviewer mentions the volume cannot be controlled. This is because it is not a headphone socket, it is a 'line out.' It is for connecting to external speakers which have their own volume control. I do use headphones, but I have a FiiO headphone amplifier which has volume adjustment. Not that it needs boosting, if anything with just headphones it's a bit loud, but it means I can control the volume. Be warned, if you will want to use headphones with this but have no way of controlling volume, this isn't for you.
Very pleased with it, and will probably end up buying another one for home.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must have for watching films on the Vita 10 Dec 2012
By Jrien
What I liked:

- Having a charger and an audio out means you can watch films, with much better sound, without ever having to worry about battery life!
- It transforms the Vita into an awesome mini cinema
- It saves your arms from holding the Vita for 2 hours whilst watching a movie
- Can use it as a dock or charger
- Its good value for what it is
- The viewing angle which it holds the Vita at, is just right (see below)

What I disliked:

- It looks better quality than it feels
- The viewing angle is not adjustable
- Whilst watching movies, charging is slowed down considerably


One of the Vita's better accessories and a must have for watching films. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars ps vita cradle 14 Aug 2012
By mr x
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
i have no volume controls on my headphones so maybe this would not be a problem.but when the vita is docked on the cradle, your usual slot to fit headphones is blocked by the stand.there is a slot at the back of the cradle but when using this there is no volume contol from you ps vita.( can not use it)
this makes volume loud and not ideal for eg playing a game or watching a movie while charging.
good but could be better

essential for any PS Vita owner - looks great and also protects the Vita's rear touch screen panel as your device wont rest on it when its charging overnight

4.0 out of 5 stars PS Vita cradle / dock 12 Sep 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I use the dock to sit the Vita on my desk at work so I can use Music Unlimited or have video running in the background. It sits on three flat rubber feet at the perfect angle and small enough that when I travel I throw it in my bag so I can sit the Vita on it during a long flight or train journey.

As others have mentioned, the audio socket on the back is a Line-Out socket and as such you can't control the volume with the Vita itself.

Fortunately, the gap on the dock under the earphone socket on the Vita has just enough room let you plug in a pair of earphones with an L-shaped jack. There's a small gap on the struts that allows the earphone cable to be fed under the Vita and out to the side without the Vita squashing it. Using the actual earphone socket you can at least control the volume from the Vita, although it is a bit of a faff to have to take the vita off the dock when you want to retrieve the earphones.

I do love having it, but there's no getting away from the fact that just like Vita memory cards, this is a very over-priced plastic accessory. There's just nothing to it - no weight at all, so even pushing the touch screen on the Vita is enough to have it and the dock slide along my desk. A bit more weight would solve both that and the impression that you've received an empty box when it arrives!

If you use your Vita a lot for listening to music or watching video then I recommend it - just be prepared to be underwhelmed by what you actually get for your money!

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear, This is so small and I mean ... 29 Nov 2014
By jamie
Verified Purchase
Oh dear,
This is so small and I mean the box is actually 6 times bigger than the item.
It's small and plastic so do not assume it is metal.
The box had been opened because I could see how the sticky tape had been off and reseated but was not in original place.

What do you get?
Instructions and a small plastic stand......that is it!
Did you expect a power cord of any kind for the price tag of £20 including postage?

My advice,
Make a a cradle yourself and use your psvita power cord because you need to use it anyway.
Not worth it at all unless they drop the price dramatically.

Very useful. Vita lives on the cradle every night while charging - no longer gets knocked off the sidetable or stuck in a draw.
