As you may already know, charging the Sixasis with the stock 4 foot USB bundled with the console is a joyless experience; a corner cut surely to keep the price down on the PS3. Players that want to charge more than one controller at a time need to buy additional USB cables or "something else" -- and that's exactly the problem 3rd parties are trying to solve right now. As you can see from the picture above; there's some good options headed your way.
Enter Nyko's three tiered offerings: a premium long USB cable for the budget conscious ($10), a patented AC-powered Dual Charge AC that lets you charge your goods away from the console ($20) and for the ultimate in sexiness there's the grand puba solution -- the PS3 Charge Base pictured above ($30). This was obviously our favorite. We were impressed by it's slick and sturdy design, the fact that it requires no USB ports, supports all 4 at a time, and looks damn good sitting next to a PS3. The aesthetics alone are worth the price of admission. Check out the six pics attached!
We also spent some time with their new line of PS3 and Xbox 360 Zero controllers, their Guitar Hero solutions for the PS3 (we tested them on Freebird, obviously), HDMI cables, Dual-Shock 2 adapters, and more fun stuff. Those reviews are coming as soon as we finish last night's fridge cold pizza.
