Being a huge Xbox fan and sinking loads of hours into various games I often found myself halfway through a game hunting around for batteries. Snakebyte have just laucnhed the With Twin:Charge X charging station so your controllers are always ready for action. Two controllers can be charged without any additional cables and the front LEDs show you their current charging status. The design is specifically tailored to the Xbox One to match the look of your favourite console. The design of the Twin:Charge X is truly on point, coming in both white and black to match the Xbox One S and Xbox One X standard models. It has a good amount of weight, meaning it won’t slide all over the place when you hook up that cable.
The Twin:Charge X is a dual controller dock designed for use with the Xbox One, but you can just as easily use it for charging Xbox controllers via your PC as well. It’s completely USB-based, and comes with two 800 mAH NiMH batteries. Snakebyte doesn’t provide any information on the estimated amount of recharges you’ll get per battery, but they do hit their target battery life of around 6-8 hours per charge, taking around 1-2 hours to fully recharge from zero which is pretty dam good to ensure your always good to go.
The battery itself is designed for any generation of Xbox controller, but at least with the latest Bluetooth model, the fit is incredibly tight which is a bonus compared to other models I have used in the past.
Available for under £25 its a great investment long term, just think how quickly how many batteries you would use.
A good looking product from Snakebyte and looks really tidy next to the xbox console, overall a must for any xbox fan.
