Konnet Power Pyramid for PS3 Review

This is a new product from Konnet called the Power Pyramid. It can store 4 controllers and charge them within 3 hours. When it’s charging it shows red, blue means it’s fully charged. Features intelligent charging design to avoid overcharging.

The blue light in the Pyramid lights up when you have controllers connected. Once your remove all the controllers the lights turn off, which is nice.

The controllers connect/remove to the usb docking port easily. They feel snug once connected too, I actually lifted it up and walked it to the table to take photos and it didn’t feel like they would fall out.

Konnet also has a model where you can charge two PS3 Controllers and two XBox 360 Controllers, useful for those that own both systems.

Pros

Unique Design
Doubles as a storage stand
Frees up USB slots on the PS3

Cons

No external power switch
Somewhat pricey

I was fortunate enough to win this item a couple of months ago and I'm finally getting around to writing a review for it after putting in some time using it.

The device is well constructed, but I'd suggest that you don't move it once you find a spot you want to put it. The power adapter can easily slide out with the slightest tension.

It holds my controllers nicely and switches from red to blue upon completing the charging. I've also tried to charge the official sony ps3 bluetooth headset, a blackberry 8830 world edition phone, and a nextar mp3 player. All of them use a USB-B connection to charge them and two of the three devices charged well.

The notification light worked well for the blackberry 8830 and the nextar mp3 player and both charged fully. The sony ps3 headset did not charge. In fact, the lights just blinked on the power pyramid while the device was slid onto one of the usb-b connections.

If it had worked for that device, it would have been the perfect accessory (Yes, I know it wasn't designed to charge the headset so that is just my being wishful). That along with the inclusion of a standard usb port to allow you to charge devices that don't use USB-B.

I don't know if I could justify the current $50 price tag, but it is priced close to other 4 controller charging solutions. While I have 3 controllers with the third being a recent addition I cannot justify the 4 port device. Energizers charger only supports 2 controllers and retails for $30. On a side note, the Konnet Power Pyramid that supports 2 Xbox 360 controllers and 2 PS3 controllers retails for around $40. If you're a multi-console home, it becomes the more space convenient option.

Style wise I give them points for being unique. I wish it had an USB port on the charger itself so I could charge my bluetooth headset. But overall it’s a great charger with a unique look and gets the job done.
