I've just bought this. Swordfish PlayStation 3 Controller Charging Station - cheap PS3 Peripheral - Dixons.co.uk I mistakenly thought I would be able to leave my pad in the charger so it would always be charged. It's just a little stand (x2) with a usb pin that you sit your pad on. Then there's a usb cable that you plug into the stand from the PS3. Whats the point? What's the difference from not having the stand/charger and just plugging your usb cable straight into the pad itself? It's not like it's mains powered so you can leave it on all the time (which I assumed it would be). I must be missing something or else it must surely qualify for the top ten most pointless things ever!!
