The best of British, Venom Gaming, are back in the Play3r labs this time with a peripheral for Microsoft’s Xbox One. Venom are looking to pick-up Microsoft’s slack in the battery department with their Twin Docking Station which comes with two rechargeable batteries and a docking station for a reasonable RRP of £20 – the same price an official Play and Charge kit costs with only one battery.

- Rapid recharge cradle for 2 Xbox One® wireless controllers.
- Keep controllers fully charged and ready to use.
- Supplied with x2 Nimh rechargeable battery packs.
- Charges whilst on standby.
- Polished black finish to match controllers.
- Red LED charge indicators turn to green once controllers are fully charged.
- Up to 18 hours gameplay.
- Charges via USB cable (included)

Two powerful Nimh rechargeable battery packs provide maximum power for gameplay of up to 18 hours.”
