Nyko ships Charge Base 360 for Xbox 360 Controllers

Nyko Technologies, a gaming peripherals manufacturer, has announced the shipment of its latest peripheral that has been designed for Microsoft’s very popular video game console - the Xbox 360. Known as Charge Base 360, it offers a drop-in charging and storage solution for up to two wireless controllers.

Nyko boasts to be the first to provide such a charging solution for the millions of Xbox 360 owners. They can easily and quickly place the controller onto the base for storage as well as for charging. Gamers you need to thank Charge Base 360 as it eliminates the use of wasteful disposable batteries and USB for charging the controllers.

It features two custom NiMH rechargeable batteries that have special contact points. Players can easily place their controllers on the charging base without the need of detaching the battery packs. The included two ports ensure charging of up to two controllers at one time. Interestingly, the controllers are said to offer up to 25 hours of play time on a single charge, each.

“Nyko has identified a need among Xbox 360 owners looking for a more convenient way to store and charge their controllers. The Charge Base 360 eliminates the use of wasteful and expensive disposable batteries and keeps your controllers charged while you store them, so that they are ready to go for an extended gaming session every time you pick them up,” mentioned Chris Arbogast, Director of Marketing at Nyko Technologies.

The AC-powered Charge Base 360 also comes with two LED lights that keep changing color, indicating the charging status of each controller. It has the ability to plug into any standard outlet for a charge time of less than 2 hours for one controller, and less than 4 hours for two controllers.

Nyko Charge Base 360 is immediately available in stores for an estimated cost of $34.99 (approx. Rs. 1360).
