Best DualSense Charging Stations For PS5 In 2022

The official PlayStation 5 charging station isn't the only DualSense charger worth picking up.


The DualSense is a great PS5 controller, but it doesn't have the best battery life. While the DualSense is a big step forward from the DualShock 4 in terms of battery life, it's still not on par with Xbox or Switch controllers. To keep yourself in the game always, you may want to pick up a DualSense charging station, so you can easily charge your controllers between sessions. Since you get up to 12 hours of battery life with the DualSense on a full charge, you likely won't have any issues as long as you dock your controllers each time when you're done playing. We've rounded up the best DualSense charging stations. All of these PS5 controller chargers are reasonably priced--some are even available for under $10.

DualSense charging stations also have another handy use case--they double as controller stands; so you'll naturally be inclined to place your controllers in the cradle when you're done playing. If you're having some marathon gaming sessions (Elden Ring, anyone?), avoiding the dreaded battery drain can sometimes be impossible. Since the included USB-C cable isn't lengthy enough to be practical for most setups, you may also want to invest in a longer cord such as this 16-foot cable that's compatible with DualSense and Xbox Series X|S controllers.
