I know everyone hates wires, especially when you need them to charge your devices. On a console, they just make your whole setup look ugly. Nyko will soon have a solution to those ugly wires on your PS4 with the new Modular Charge Station. This is an add-on that you plug into the USB ports on your PS4 and it will automatically allow you to charge your DualShock 4 controllers wirelessly by placing them on top of the charging station. The Modular Charge Station can charge up to two controllers at once and can also be used with other Nyko PS4 accessories.
The Nyko Modular Charge Station for the PS4 seems pretty inexpensive too at just $19.99. Look for it soon later this Fall.
LOS ANGELES – August 5, 2014 – Leading gaming accessories manufacturer Nyko Technologies® today announced the Modular Charge Station for Xbox® One and PlayStation® 4, completely wireless docks for charging controllers, is coming to video game retail stores this fall. The newest addition to Nyko’s Modular line of products announced at E3 2014, the Modular Charge Station, with a separate version each for both Xbox One and PS4, mounts atop the console for a drop-and-go controller charging dock.

“The spirit of the Modular line is to customize the consoles for optimal performance in the most cost and space-efficient way possible,” said Chris Arbogast, director of marketing at Nyko Technologies. “The Modular Charge Station accomplishes that by letting players charge controllers directly atop their consoles — no wires or extra storage space is needed.”
