5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money! 23 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I read reviews of a few chargers before settling on this one, and I'm glad I chose it. It takes two controllers, and will have both of them fully charged in around two-and-a-half hours from a single USB port. Much better than having to switch a cable between controllers and charging them individually.

An LED near the connection point for each pad shows red when charging, and blue when "fully charged". There is a slight discrepancy here, though, as the LED always turns blue while the 4 lights on the controller itself are still blinking... so just leave the pads charging until their own indicators stop blinking.

It's pretty solidly built, but like a PSP it's very shiny and shows up fingerprints terribly. Not really a problem, but it can start to look fairly grubby if you don't wipe it over every so often. It's light, so you will need to hold it steady when connecting controllers... meaning that fingerprints build up very quickly.

The only real down-side is that the blue LEDs around the base are very bright, and there's no way of turning them off other than disconnecting the supplied USB power lead. So if your console is in a bedroom, you may not want to leave your controllers charging when you go to bed. A switch to turn off the LEDs would have been nice

5.0 out of 5 stars Great bit of kit 27 Dec 2008
By V. Shaw
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Works fine and looks pretty good to with the blue lights from the charger and the red from the controllers. Charges with usb cable so buy a usb mains adaptor as well to avoid having your ps3 plugged in unnecessarily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Venom charger........great product 3 Oct 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this product for duel purpose.Firstly to be able to charge both ps3 chargers at once without having to have ps3 turned on and secondly for somewhere to store controllers and keep them tidy.The pyramid looks great, keeps the controllers tidy, and charges them both at the same time.
I bought a usb plug adapter so can plug pyramis into tjat and charge from mains wuthout having to have ps3 turned on which is very handy.The pyramid irself looks great when on with lights on the pyramis though can get very bright especially if charging during the night in the bedroom so turn it off when going to sleep but it it a prettybquick charger anyway.
Worth the money and also worth spending a couple of pound on a usb plug adapter to go with it.recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Venom Controller 27 Sep 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Functional and stylish, only downside is that the charger will only work with the PS3 switched on, just as if you were charging the controller normally . So all you need to do is buy a Mains USB charger so you can charge the controllers with the unit switched off. matches the PS3 nicely, would recommend.Venom Controller Pyramid Charger (PS3)

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 10 April 2010
By Style X
I expected more from this item. It has 3 major faults that in my opinion make it not worth buying.

I left a Controller fully charged (blue light) in it in the evening. The next morning I turned on my PS3 and the light was suddenly red for a good 30 minutes. This means that the Controller somehow discharged over the night worth 1/2h because I left it in the Charging slot.

The second problem. The LEDs seem to be of bad quality, or basically the whole thing isn't manufactured well. When I got my 2nd Controller (a few days after I bought the Charger), I put it in the 2nd slot. It wasn't fully charged, hence the light didn't turn blue. However it also didn't turn red like it should. So the red LED on the 2nd splot seems to be broken since the beginning. It works fine on the other slot however.

Also, after 2 days one of the LEDs in the corners startet flickering, and stopped working completely after a few minutes.

What's also negative in my opinion, is that the item uses 2 different colors of blue. The "fully charged"-blues are dark blue, like the PS3 Slim eject button light. The ones in the 4 corners, however, are bright blue or turqoise. So it doesn't really mach. The corner LEDs should be dark blue just like the "fully charged" light. It would make a great match with, for example, the Vertical Stand from Logic3.

I ordered a few dark blue LEDs and a red one for the 2nd slot. Going to mod this thing so the blues match up and the broken red light works. If that is done and works how I want, it makes a great accessory for your PS3, but like this it's not really that good.

There's also no way to turn off the lights other than switching off your PS3 or removing the cable. But that's not a major problem.

So overall I wouldn't suggest to get this item unless you're willing to invest time and money to tune it up a little.
