I've been looking for a control pad charger for a while and when I saw this I thought it looked perfect. Not only does this charge your pads when not in use, but it also looks good and serves as a stand to keep your pads tidy as well.
When it has a pad on it the LCD display lights up to show that it is charging - a red picture of a controller shows that it's charging, a green picture shows it's fully charged and ready to use. As for the charging time I didn't really notice any difference in charging speed between using this or plugging then directly into the PS4.
The unit itself is quite lightweight but it feels solid enough and does the job it's meant for so I am happy to recommend it to others.
