News: Gioteck Unveil New PS5/Xbox Charging Stands

Chargers with swappable face plates incoming…

London, UK – October 27, 2022 – Gioteck™, a leading video game accessory brand, and part of Embracer Freemode, announced today the shipping of a new range of charging solutions for PlayStation®5 and Xbox®.

Arriving in time for the Holiday season and available throughout the EU, the new SOLO and DUO Charging Stands power beyond the competition in terms of features, style, design and value.

Key to the appeal of the Charging Stand, is the swappable faceplate system, allowing gamers to customise the appearance of their accessory to match the colour of the controller being charged. With six faceplates included with the PlayStation®5 Charging Stand (Black, Purple, Magenta, Pink and Blue) and two faceplates included with the Xbox® version (Black and White), gamers can proudly charge and display their DualSense™ or Xbox® controllers with coordinating colours. The interchangeable faceplates connect simply to the Charging Stand via a secure clipping system and can be swapped easily in seconds for fast fashion without the fuss.

Both PlayStation®5 and Xbox® Charging Stands charge via USB-C, ensuring effortless connection and speedy charging, however, unlike the majority of charging solutions, the Gioteck™ Charging Stands feature an additional USB-C connection, allowing users to charge an additional device, preventing the need to sacrifice any ports on their console.

Available in either SOLO or DUO configurations, gamers can choose to charge one or two controllers to match their configuration, and discrete LED lighting alerts the gamer to the charging status.

For Xbox® One or Xbox® X|S owners, the Xbox® Changing Stand includes either single or dual rechargeable battery packs, providing hours of gameplay and eliminating the need for costly AAA batteries.

Commenting on the SOLO and DUO Charging stands, Marek Soroka, Head of Sales and Marketing for Gioteck™ said, “This Holiday will see a lot of new and existing gamers looking for a quality solution to storing and charging their controllers. To date, over 600,000 PlayStation®5 gamers have purchased a coloured controller, and we’re delighted to leapfrog the competition with our SOLO and DUO Charging Stands, uniquely allowing gamers to mix-and-match their Charging Stand to the colour of their controllers. By designing our range in-house, we believe our Charging Stand offers a high quality, stylish solution, with the added benefit of additional connectivity, at an affordable price point, the perfect gift for gamers.”

The SOLO Charging Stand retails for an SRP of £14.99/19.99€ and the DUO Charging Stand is available now in the UK at GAME, Argos, Smyths Toys, and multiple retailers in Europe for an SRP of £19.99/24.99€.
