    Lightbulb Charging 4 controllers at once

    I just purchased 2 PS4 charging stations. Each charging station holds 2 controllers.

    When I plug them both in the power lights on all the stations light up, but only 1 of the stations (and 2 controllers) turn orange and start charging.

    The 2nd station will only start charging if I unplug the 1st station.

    Any idea how to get them all to charge instead of just 2 controllers?

    I don't think you will be able to charge 4 controllers all at once with an available power of 5V 500mA (USB typical output).
    No way to get power from an external source?

    What Alex said. There's likely not enough power from the ports to charge 4. You have the link to your charging docks? I may have an easy solution for you.
