For PlayStation VR, Nyko showed of two options for charging the Move controllers.The first is a mini-USB Y cable with that will charge both controllers in one USB port on the PS4. It isn't proprietary, so it can be used with any device with a mini-USB port. The second is a charge block that will handle both controllers. It plugs into a wall outlet or can use the PS4's USB port.

On the PC side, Nyko unveiled a charge block for the dual HTC Vive controllers as well, using a dongle for charging that attaches to the contoller's USB port. The block will plug into a wall outlet for faster charges than USB offers. In addition, a new VR Halo protective cover was shown for the controller, offering extra padding for the Vive's sensor ring. The halo offers holes so that no button are covered when it is in place.
