Fortunately, I was able to get a charging station just like my old Nikko on Amazon.
Yeah the USB cable that comes with the PS3 is VERY short. You can get a 15 foot USB cable on Amazon for like $2.50 though. The controllers only take 30 minutes to an hour to charge. Maybe a little bit longer if you are using it while it is charging.
