Nyko has announced the release of an Xbox 360-compatible charging base, much like the PlayStation 3 one the company debuted almost two months ago.
The Nyko Charge Base 360 comes with two NiMH rechargeable batteries fitted with contact points that allow you to simply drop the controller into the included cradle. The base can charge one battery in 2 hours and two in 4. Nyko says that each full battery charge should net you about 25 hours of play time.
Microsoft offers a Quick Charge Kit for around $30 that only comes with one battery and charges a single pack in 3 hours.
The Nyko Charge Base 360 will retail for $35 and is available now. Check back with CNET in the coming weeks for a full review. A limited-edition black-and-gold version of the Charge Base will go on sale June 2.
