It’s the perfect blend between compact, effective, and synergistic with the PlayStation 5’s own design language.
The HyperX ChargePlay Duo might sound like a handful, but it’s shorter than saying Sony PlayStation 5 DualSense controller charging dock, now isn’t it?! With a design that’s much more compact than its name, the ChargePlay Duo lets you dock not one, but two DualSense controllers on its easel-like design, effectively charging both of them while giving you a place to rest them.
Designer: Jimmy Huynh (HyperX)
At just 3 inches tall, 5 inches wide, and 4.6 inches long, the ChargePlay Duo is fairly compact, occupying roughly the same footprint as one single controller. Designed by HyperX, which was acquired by HP just two years ago, the ChargePlay lets you dock two controllers at the same time, with a 5V input and an 18W output that charges both controllers at the same time. Unlike Sony’s official charger which tends to be a little finicky, the ChargePlay Duo does a pretty remarkable job of always lining up your DualSense controllers so they charge all the time, every time.
The dock itself is modeled to match the PS5’s aesthetic, with a similar Stormtrooper color scheme that lets it blend in with your table setup rather seamlessly. It comes with a weighted base that clocks in at a sizeable 13.8 ounces (391 grams), putting it on the heavier side but also keeping it fairly stable. This allows you to easily dock or un-dock controllers without worrying about knocking anything around or causing the other controller to fall off its stand. The ChargePlay Duo comes with a Type-C charging cable that you can hook into a power strip or wall socket, or connect directly to the USB-A port in your PlayStation 5 to eliminate clutter and keep your gaming setup clean while keeping your controllers perpetually charged and ready to go!
