We've had some laughs over Dragon Electronics'
ill-conceived accessories in the past, but the Chinese manufacturer really seemed to hit all the right notes with its latest charging dock
. Taking more into account than just bundling battery covers and rechargeable AAA batteries, the cradle has every feature we're looking for in a budget solution -- USB
adapter, unobtrusive design, room to charge two controllers simultaneously, and LED
Play-Asia has the charging station listed for $14.90 ($6.70 s/h), while eBay auctions have it priced a few dollars higher. To compare, Nyko's dock
sells for about $30. Check past the post break for the full fact sheet.
