PlayStation Move third party accessories tour Chapter 3 of 4: Chargers and stuff

As you can guess by the title, this chapter focuses on the charging stations currently available for the PlayStation Move set. And man, are third party manufacturers in love with this sort of equipment. Besides the official Charging Station, in fact, there are more than 20 alternatives out there!

I’ve tried to gather as much information as I could online, but of course some details are missing from the official descriptions (for example, some chargers – like BigBen’s Dual Charger – seem to use the mini-USB ports to feed the controllers, rather than the metal plates). Therefore, if you happen to have purchased/seen in person any of these devices, please fill the gaps by sharing your impressions in the comments section below to the benefit of the others.

Enjoy and stay tuned for the upcoming final chapter.
