This thing does charge the controllers, albiet a bit slowly. Which isnt a huge issue... by big problem with this is that the bottom controller turns on because the fit is so poorly designed. Its WAY too tight to get the controller in without accidentally turning it on and thus negating your charging efforts. Also, if its plugged in... the light is on. Theres no way to turn the blue LED off. And its BRIGHT . So, if you need one for 1 controller and dont mind a bright blue light, this is fine.
