I’m always on the hunt for a new portable charger. I can’t always be lugging around two full charge cords to my car, my phone, or my laptop, so I have a hard time getting around in my car.
One of the best portable chargers I’ve come across is one that works with both Sony’s Playstation 4 and Sony’s PlayStation Vita. It’s called the Dual Charger, and it makes your portable devices (including your PS4) charge at two different speeds. Sony claims it’ll charge your PS4 faster than a typical wall charger, and Sony’s Vita will charge your Vita in about two hours.
So what’s the point of the Dual Charger? Well, if you have the choice between your Vita or PS4, I can only imagine the extra charge will not be of much use to you. The PS4 has a built-in Wi-Fi antenna, which will get you a much better signal on a lot of the world’s most crowded wireless hotspots.
Although Sony won’t talk about it, it’s likely that the Dual Charger is the reason Sony decided to go with two different versions of the base PS4. The Vita is a very large and bulky device, though, and Sony wanted to make sure that the Dual Charger works properly for both Vita and PS4. I’m not a PS4 expert, but the Dual Charger claims to work very well on the Vita, too.
I’ve been playing with the new Dual Charger for a while, and its seems to be a very capable device for anyone who plays on the go. Though it looks ugly enough, you can charge up either the PS4 or Vita at the same time, and you can also use the Dual Charger to power up your PS4 Pro.
Like most Vita games, its a very simple game, but the Dual Charger seems great for anyone who needs to play with their Vita or PS4 at the same time. I suppose it would be a little awkward if you wanted to use your PS4 Pro to load up a Vita game, but if you wanted to load up a PS4 game, its easy.
Of course, I suppose you could use the Dual Charger to power up a Vita games as well, but you’d have to hold it down while the Vita is playing, and this makes it awkward to use. I can imagine that if you had a Dual Charger, you’d be playing more Vita games to power up your PS4 Pro, but that’s a lot more hassle.
I agree. This is a great idea, but it can be tricky to get the Dual Charger to charge up. It can take up to an hour for it to fully charge, and that’s with the charger in the back of your PS4. I’m sure there is a way to make it work though, and it’s a good example that more than one solution is possible.
The only drawback is that if you don’t bring your PS4 Pro with you, there is no way to charge it while you’re home. You can still play the PS4 games you need to play, but you’ll need to use the PS4’s charging port whenever you’re away from the console.
The Dual Charger is a great power-saving feature that can help you avoid those awkward situations where youre running out of juice on your PS4. It works in a similar way to the power bank, so when you’re running low on juice, you can simply plug in a power bank.
