5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, Stylish and a complete Bargain! 23 Jun 2011
By RAAM²
There isn't much I can add to other reviews that hasn't already been said but I also would like to confirm the quality and reliability of this product.

Out of the box you get a docking [toast rack style] charger, a USB lead and 2 batteries. You can leave it plugged into you Xbox or buy a USB plug to put it straight into the mains.

Replace your controller batteries with these batteries and put on the dock, you can charge one when playing with other or charge between games but at only 1.5ish hours for full charge you can afford to decide.

The charger looks very stylish, especially with controllers sitting on it. The charger has 2 lights on the front [left for front controller, right for back] and they are red until fully charged which then turn to green which I found was a problem with other chargers I've had, they didn't let you know when they were complete.

Overall I think for the price, looks and reliability of the product you couldn't ask for any better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money 29 Oct 2009
By Jody M
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a fantastic charging solution for my xbox pads. It comes with two batteries which is a bonus and buying this is a much cheaper alternative to the play and charge kit. It charges very quickly about 2.5 hours and works perfectly. Have saved myself money buying this and so glad I did. Well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Venom twin charging cradle 25 Feb 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought One for my son last month as he was allways raiding the remotes and anything else that had batteries in to power his controlers. although there are no instructions it is easy to use and does what it is made for,Comes with two rechargeable battery packs and is very handy to keep both controlers stowed away neatly. red lights for charging green for fully charged, batteries seem to last a fair time and dont take long to recharge, it continues to charge even when x-box is in standby mode. price is quite reasonable as it wont take very long to pay for itself.
the only downside is that it only charges by usb i would have prefered an option to plug into a wall socket and that is the one reason i only gave it 4 stars, As somone else has said " It does what it says on the box"
Andy.

By MS
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been using the cradle and bundled battery packs for a little while now, and I'm happy enough with my purchase. Overall, this is a very competitively-priced product: a decent alternative to Microsoft's own-brand kit.

The product spec neglects to mention that each battery pack is rated at a capacity of 900mAh. You will therefore notice that they don't provide as many hours of gaming as you would get from alkaline AA batteries, or even rechargeable NiMH AAs (typically 2000-3000 mAh). Venom are hoping you'll like the benefit of never really needing to remove the battery packs from your controllers. Rechargeable AAs are fundamentally better batteries, but if you don't want the hassle, these packs do the job.

As another user has noted, it's not possible to charge standard Xbox battery packs with this cradle.

In the packaging, you'll find a cradle (finished in a high-gloss black plastic), a USB cable (for connection to your Xbox, or other powered USB port of your choice), and two rechargeable battery packs. It does not come bundled with a power adaptor, or an instruction manual, though neither is really necessary at this price point..

The cradle is rather light, but does have non-slip feet attached, so it shouldn't move about too much during use. It is powered by a USB cable (male type A to miniUSB), of generous length. The USB ports on the new Xbox 360 S remain powered even when the console itself is on standby, so all works a treat. If you have an older 360, and your USB port is occupied by the wireless adaptor, you'll need to find another powered USB port: Veho do a great 3-pin plug adaptor, which has a single integrated female USB port, typically for less than a fiver. Job done!

The cradle has two slots for controllers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product 15 Dec 2013
By Gualsa
Verified Purchase
We have had this now for over a year and it is just brilliant. No more batteries. We have saved a fortune!
The lights at the front which indicate when the unit is properly in place and fully charged is handy as it can be turned off when it has finished charging. I don't know how long charge holds as the controllers have never run out of charge using these lithium batteries.

A must have for any X box fan (unless you love buying batteries of course)

5.0 out of 5 stars looks nice 28 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
decided to switch to wireless controllers and thought that may as well buy a stand to keep them in one place as left in different places get lost. This is not only tidy looking stand, but also contains 2 batteries so no need to change batteries. Keep controllers on the cradle and you will never run out of power. Didn't manage to use up the battery yet, so can't really say how long they last, but at least 5 hours (thats the longest we played so far).

Great docking station. Looks like it is well made and doesnt look out of place next to my black xbox. Each battery pack gives me over 10 hours of gaming per charge. Very happy with it.
