Sony’s next-generation gaming console, the PlayStation 5 has launched. Having sold over 2.5 million consoles world-wide in the first two days, the PS5 is shaping up to be the biggest console launch in history.

12 Days of Christmas: Day 7 is the PlayStation 5 DualSense Charging Station

One of the best new features of the PlayStation 5 is the DualSense wireless controller, and my editor’s pick for the 12 Days of Christmas is the PlayStation 5 DualSense Charging Station.

Adaptive triggers let you feel tension

Much of what PlayStation fans love about the PS4’s DualShock 4 wireless controller is included with the PlayStation 5 DualSense Wireless Controller but new features such as haptic feedback, offer a whole new level of immersion.

With haptic feedback, games can now have a variety of powerful sensations that you actually feel when you play. Additionally, the DualSense wireless controller has adaptive triggers, which allows you to feel tension. The share button from the DualShock 4 has been replaced with a “Create” button. It features new and innovative ways to share content with the world.

Stay charged, stay ready to play

It’s important to keep your controller charged and ready at all times. That way you can pick up and play many of the amazing new games on PS5. The PS5 DualSense Wireless Controller Charging Station is a quick, easy and convenient way to keep your controllers charged and neatly stored.

DualSense Charging Station

The PlayStation 5 DualSense Charging Station allows you to quickly charge up to 2 PlayStation 5 DualSense Wireless Controllers at once. With a limited amount of USB ports on PS5, the PlayStation 5 DualSense Charging Station doesn’t use any of the ports on your PS5 to charge.

Instead, it comes with an AC power adaptor that plugs into the wall and then connects to the back of the charging station. Something else that I love about the charging station is the easy click design. All you have to do to charge your controller is put it into the designated slot on the charging station. When you hear it “click”, you’ll know it is properly in place.

In fact, you will know it is charging because the light around the touchpad will slowly blink orange. Depending on your controller’s battery level, it takes somewhere around 3 hours to fully charge it.

Key points why I like the PS5 DualSense Charging Station

+ Quickly and easily charge 2 controllers at on time
+ It doesn’t use any USB ports on PS5
+ Click-in design lets you know your controller is properly connected
+ It’s a fantastic way to store your controllers when not in use
+ Saves wear and tear on the DualSense controller’s USB-C port

PlayStation 5 DualSense Charging Station is a great gift idea
