A wireless PS4 (And Xbox I guess, I have a PS4 so I only really thought of it for that) charger.

It would essentially just be like a portable mobile charger, just for PS4 chargers as in it would work like that: You charge the charger and then use that to charge to controller.

I made a quick graphic for it:

Top: Just a normal ps4 charger without the wire
Bottom: Same as top but a slot that you can use to charge it (image taken from a ps4 controller)
Back: How much charge. Green: Most charge, Orange: Some charge Red: No Charge / Hardly any charge

(Not all that original since mobile chargers have been out for ages but thought it may be a good / easier option for console users since you don't have to worry about having the wire connected to the console whilst you use it)

What do you guys think of it? (And if anyone actually decide to make this, let me know as I would like to help in however I can )

I think it is an awesome idea but i think it'd be hard to fit all that hardware into a small little contraption like that.

Wouldnt this be the same design as a portable phone charger, which must be way larger than in your image and I can pretty much guarantee is patented.
Edit: A simple google comes up with many many patents of all kinds of things for any flavor of portable charger, if you were to build this it would have to be extremely unique and you'd still probably be sued five times.

Yeah it would be similar to that, but you charge phones normally and then you can use a portable one. Could be the same for a controller. And I imagine you could use a portable phone charger with a controller with the right cable, but the thing I described wouldn't even need the cable.

Yeah, I just used an image from a normal ps4 charger but it could be bigger than that. (Even a USB sized one would work) It would just plug into the back of a controller and there would be no need for a cable to be attached

Actually sounds like a cool idea but might be hard...

Thanks And yeah I've been thinking about it for a while since I always seem to forget my controller is plugged in and nearly pull my PS4 out of my desk... But I have no idea how to make it so I welcome anyone to try it

This is a really cool idea but couldn't you just buy rechargeable batteries?

It's a very good idea you'd make some money off this, but it would be so difficult to create. I'd definitely buy one though.


What would you name it?

I like the idea. However, it's already been done & is more convenient to just use the wired charger for most people. As they buy a 1-2m cable so they can play & charge
