Nyko Xbox 360 Charge Base

Nyko Technologies®, the premier gaming peripherals manufacturer, today announced that their Charge Base 360 has shipped to stores. This new charging solution for the Xbox 360 provides a drop-in charging and storage solution for up to two wireless controllers. Nyko is the first to offer such a charging solution for the millions of Xbox 360 owners looking for a faster and more efficient way to store and charge their controllers. The Charge Base 360 offers an alternative to USB charging or wasteful and expensive disposable batteries.

Nyko’s Charge Base 360 comes with two custom NiMH rechargeable batteries that feature special contact points, allowing the controllers to be easily dropped into the Charge Base 360 without removing the battery packs. Two ports allow up to two controllers to charge simultaneously, with a single charge providing up to 25 hours of play time for each controller. The device is AC powered and plugs into any standard outlet for a charge time of less than 2 hours for one controller, and less than 4 hours for two controllers. The Charge Base 360 also includes two LED lights which change color to indicate the charge status of each controller.

“Nyko has identified a need among Xbox 360 owners looking for a more convenient way to store and charge their controllers, said Chris Arbogast, Director of Marketing at Nyko Technologies. “The Charge Base 360 eliminates the use of wasteful and expensive disposable batteries and keeps your controllers charged while you store them, so that they are ready to go for an extended gaming session every time you pick them up.”

Nyko’s Charge Base for the Xbox 360 is available for the suggested retail price of $34.99. Please visit for more information.

A limited edition run of 200 units in a Black & Gold color scheme will go on sale June 2nd, exclusively on the Nyko store website at for the standard MSRP of $34.99.

  • This sounds interesting. I’d love to hear someone’s experiences with it. I would also like to know if the special battery packs would charge in the Xbox 360 Quick Charge Kit, and if the battery packs will be sold separately.

    I would suspect they would charge in the MS/Nyko chargers, since they would have to have the terminals on the “inside” of the battery to make contact with the controller. This means the contacts used by those chargers would make contact for charging.

    At least that’s my thoughts on it.

    I just wish I could FIND the thing ANYWHERE. I can’t even find it on the websites of the retailers they tell me carry it.

    And I WANT to find them, because I WANT to own it!
