The PlayStation 4 launched in November 2013 and Sony has yet to provide a lengthened charging cord option for PS4 owners. With the Dualshock 4's seemingly shorter battery life (due mainly to the light bar on top of the controller) gamers are looking for charging solutions.
Many of the third party options offered via Amazon have poorly fitting plugs, break easily and short-out often. This is reflected in review scores with most hovering between 2 and 3 stars. With third party options so undependable and no first party option other than the short cable included with the PS4, many owners have felt helpless...
Dreamgear has released a high-quality, 10 foot charging cord for the Dualshock 4. After seeing the surprisingly high reviews on Amazon, I decided to give it a shot. After about a month of use I can say without a doubt that Dreamgear has delivered with this product.
Dreamgear's Charge and Play 10 ft long Charge Cable provides gamers with a longer alternative to the cable Sony packs in with all PS4s. At 10 feet, the cord allows PlayStation 4 owners to charge their controller while they play as opposed to using Sony's cable which doesn't reach out far from the console. Both ends of the cord fit snugly into their respective ports allowing for constant charging.
This is by far the best third party option out there and since there is no first party option, there is no debate. The Dreamgear Charge and Play is a steal at $9.99 too. If the shortened battery life of the Dualshock 4 is frustrating you, invest in this cable. You won't regret it!
