This controller charging station was pretty awesome and still going strong for my 360 and here's the same version for the Xbone One AND at the lowest price ever on Amazon - $15.99(well lowest price again anyway).

LINK HERE [amazon.com]

I just wanted to make a quick note about this item, it seems that the majority of the lower ratings come from the same issue and there was a fix to the issue from a reviewer to make this a 5-star product like the Xbox 360 version. It's a design flaw that the metal contacts under the controller on the base need to be raised using a "jewelers screwdriver" or something similar to make a stronger contact with the controller. Yes, admittedly, it is a design or production failure but sometimes with a small tweak a product can be made nice if someone is determined...

Bought this at costco a while back, its pretty shitty. It worked for a few months and then I would really have to struggle to get the base to charge the controllers. Would have to so delicately find the sweet spot for it to charge, eventually would not charge at all. I wouldn't recommend it.

Shows still in stock and fulfilled by Amazon.com for the posted price, please fix. If it shows for $24.99 Amazon is showing third party sellers, simply look to the right for Amazon.com offer..
