I’ve always been a bit skeptical of using third party Xbox accessories for controllers and the like, but I decided to give this a try. It’s working well and as intended, and I like the fact that it doesn’t require you to “lock” the controller in; just place it in the rack and the contact points automatically line up. It’s also a flat-lying rack, so if you place it in front of your TV, it shouldn’t get in the way of the view. The battery packs are also decent, seem to hold a decent charge (played about 4-5 hours the other day and only lost about half charge).You can tell the unit is made out of cheaply manufactured plastic, but for the price point, I wouldn’t split hairs about it. The cord that comes with it is also a bit short, just barely manages to suffice for where I wanted to put it, but it’s a standard USB phone charger cord, so it wouldn’t be difficult to find a longer one at a low price.It’s cheap and gets the job done, and that’s not a bad thing. If you’re looking for a third party solution to charging your controller and don’t want to shell out too much, this a great deal.As I have only bought this, I don’t know how long the battery packs will actually last and whether or not any other complications will come up. Will update if needed.7/4/2019 Edit:It’s just 6 days shy of a full year since I purchased this, and I can honestly say this is one of the best game accessory purchases I’ve ever made. The charger still works like a beauty and the battery packs still last me around 8 hours every time I play.The contact points on both the inside and outside of the packs have gotten dirty over time, but that’s normal for these kinds of things and very easy to clean. I’m honestly surprised at how well it’s held up over the past year, especially considering how roughly I toss the controller onto the charger most of the time. It’s already outlasted one controller and at this point it’ll most likely outlast my other one as well.Such a great product. Holy cow.
only lasted about 6 monthsAfter recieving an email from fosmon that they would replace the charging station if I called them at 612-435-7508. Their main menu sent me to a voicemail where i left my name and number and reason for call. A week + later and no email or phone call. I also called back 2 addtional times and was sent to the same voice mail. Theese companies take the time to read everybodies reviews and respond to negative reviews claiming to be only a phone call away. All there trying to do is erase the negative review in the eyes of potential customers reading reviews before they make there purchase. Thats just shady in my eyes.
I bought this product because I was tired of having to change out the batteries on my Xbox remote all of the time. I even had rechargeable AA batteries but they would always die mid game and I would have to run and go change them quickly before I died. I really wanted a way that I could just set down my controller and it would charge when I am not playing and that is exactly what the Fosmon charger does. I can game for multiple hours with no problem and then put it on the charger until the next time I play. If you are on the fence about getting this just do it. You will thank me later.
