Top 5: PS5 Gadgets & Accessories

Check out these 5 unique PS5 accessories that can make a huge difference to your overall gaming experience.

let’s get these
01:58
accessories unboxed and see what they’re
01:59
all about
02:02
first up we have what looks like to be a
02:04
charging stand for the dual sense
02:06
controller
02:08
this looks like it’s going to be used
02:09
for a single controller unlike the
02:11
official sony charging station which is
02:14
designed for two controllers
02:19
inside we have the stand itself which
02:21
has a solid hard plastic design
02:25
the bottom of the stand has a rubberized
02:27
surface for grip
02:30
there’s also a usbc cable included for
02:33
charging
02:35
the controller fits into this stand nice
02:37
and snug giving it a clean look once
02:39
it’s mounted
02:41

02:42
this stand would be ideal for someone
02:44
who only uses one ps5 controller and
02:47
wants to keep it nicely organized
02:49
rather than just lying down on the shelf
02:50
or floor
02:53
with all of the new technology in the
02:55
dual sense controller like the adaptive
02:57
triggers and the advanced haptics
02:59
the battery can drop quicker than what
03:01
we’re used to in previous generations
03:04
this next accessory provides a solution
03:07
to that problem in the form of a battery
03:09
pack for the ps5 controller
03:13
this battery pack contains a
03:14
rechargeable battery with a 1500
03:16
milliamp hour capacity
03:18
which in combination with the
03:20
controller’s own 1560 milliamp hour
03:22
battery
03:23
this will literally double its battery
03:25
life
03:27
the battery pack has a single button to
03:29
turn it on when needed as well as a usbc
03:32
port
03:35
again it comes with an additional usbc
03:37
cable for charging
03:40
the battery pack clicks into place on
03:41
the back of the controller and begins
03:43
charging straight away
03:47
it’s actually really light and i
03:49
honestly can barely notice it’s there
03:50
when holding the controller
03:52
the cool thing about this battery pack
03:54
is the fact that you can charge both the
03:56
controller and the battery pack at the
03:58
same time without removing it
04:02
i’d say this is a must-have for anyone
04:04
who partakes in long-haul gaming
04:06
sessions
04:10
here we have an interesting accessory
04:12
which is designed to improve the
04:13
actual gameplay experience of the ps5
04:17
this is a kit of analog stick extenders
04:19
and grips as well as trigger
04:21
extenders the kit contains two different
04:24
varieties of trigger extenders
04:26
as well as two different types of analog
04:29
stick attachments
04:39
i immediately like the feel of the
04:40
smaller analog stick attachment
04:42
as it just feels really nice and grippy
04:44
in the hands
04:48
the longer analog stick attachment looks
04:50
a little strange however it seems to
04:52
increase the travel distance for the
04:53
analog
04:54
sticks i imagine this would allow for
04:57
more precise movements to be made as you
04:59
have a larger distance to move your
05:01
thumbs between each point
05:06
the trigger extenders on the other hand
05:08
simply increase the length of each
05:10
trigger i think the purpose of this is
05:12
to allow for your fingers to sit in a
05:14
more relaxed position
05:16
as well as being able to again provide
05:18
more precise trigger control
05:20
the trigger extenders are attached using
05:22
adhesive so time will tell how long
05:24
these will last
05:26
but so far they feel very secure
05:31
here we have a unique stand and cooling
05:33
solution for the ps5
05:35
which also doubles as a charger for the
05:37
controllers
05:46
in addition to that the stand also
05:48
offers three additional usb
05:49
ports at the front of the stand for
05:51
additional accessories to be connected
05:55
an interesting feature is the fact that
05:56
there are two small fans built into the
05:58
base of the stand
06:00
which supposedly help with airflow and
06:02
cooling
06:04
the whole thing is charged via a usb
06:06
cable which is designed to plug into the
06:08
usb port on the front of the ps5
06:11
to be honest when the ps5 is in its
06:14
vertical position it should already have
06:16
optimal airflow
06:17
but i guess there is potential that the
06:19
fans in this stand could provide a
06:21
slight benefit to the cooling
06:22
say perhaps during a long-haul gaming
06:25
session
06:26
this is a decent all-in-one solution for
06:28
charging the controllers
06:29
as well as expanding the number of ports
06:31
with a relatively small footprint
06:34
finally we have a charging dock for two
06:37
dual sense controllers
06:39
obviously sony has released an official
06:41
version of their own charging station
06:43
however this third party option is
06:45
available for a lot less
06:47
and it might even be nicer looking than
06:49
the oem version
06:58
again an extra usbc charging cable is
07:01
included
07:02
this plugs into the back of the dock
07:05
similar to the official charging station
07:07
the controller easily clicks into place
07:10
once it’s dropped on top
07:11
i personally prefer this style of dock
07:13
which charges by the bottom port
07:15
as opposed to the ones which charge via
07:17
the usbc port on top
07:19
as they’re a little trickier to put into
07:21
place i’ve seen some of the other
07:23
charging docks out there for dualsense
07:25
and most of the third-party options look
07:27
pretty tacky in my opinion
07:29
when the controllers are sitting on this
07:30
dock though it almost looks like it’s an
07:32
official design
07:34
matching up almost perfectly with the
07:35
dual sense
07:37
so there we have it this was a look at
07:39
some of the better accessories which are
07:40
available for the ps5 at the moment
