Peripheral Review: Nyko Charge Base for PlayStation 4 (New Gamer Nation)

I can't believe how quickly the PS4 controller dies in comparison to the Dualshock 3's I have lying around. I managed to get at least a few days, if not weeks, out of DS3 controllers... yet the DS4 seems to lose its juice after a handful of gameplay sessions. It's not an inconvenience or anything, since I don't play for a dozen hours straight, but it's just something I've happened to notice. I just charge it up like my phone every night before I go to bed.

Has anyone else noticed that you can't charge a DS4 up via a wall charger yet? I tried the micro-USB that my phone uses with the DS4, and it simply wouldn't charge. I could be wrong, and it might just be my charger, but it sure seems that way.
