    Dual shock 4 controller charging

    Ok yesterday I was playing Assassins Creed 4 and I happened to glance at the top of my controller maybe think she this kind of looks like my Android phone connector that I used to charge my phone since I have that plugin by my bed cause you know that's where my TV and stuff I for s**** and giggles plug that in to my dual shock 4 controller an amazing thing is it started charging. Now I know for a fact my PlayStation 3 controller would not charge without been hooked up the PlayStation 3 this alone its f****** genius. Has anybody else even realize that this will happen ?

    Ummmm if I understand what you are trying to say. The ps3 controller would charge no matter what I used. As does the DS4...

    Maybe English is a 2nd language for you, but what you wrote is almost unintelligible.

    Yep, I have a Samsung charger permanently plugged in near where I sit when gaming, I use that to charge the DS4 if need be.

    The PS3 controller should charge from elsewhere to, I've charged from my PC before.

    So far the DS4 has charged with every Micro-USB charger I've tried. The DS3 charged with any standard USB port when using a USB to Mini-USB cable. It also worked on about 1/2 of the chargers I tried it on, but not all.

    This said, I find it's much more important that the DS4 be more universally compatible, because the battery life is relatively short. I think I get about 10hrs typical on it, while I got close to 40hrs on my DS3.

    I must have been doing something wrong because I could never get my dual shock 3 to charge by anything other than a Sony product

    Same as my ds3... anything with the proper connector will charge the controllers. Mini usb for ds3, micro usb for the ds4. Charged from the ps3/ps4, the wall, etc.

    I charge my DS3 and DS4 off either my computer or my Panamax clean power unit's USB front port, never had an issue.

    Only thing ive noticed is that sometimes these micro-usb chargers will wear out. I had to replace my charger for my galaxy s3 because after a while of plugging and unplugging, the connection became kinda loose. I hope the charging cable for my ps4 stays a snug fit in the controller.

    I think that goes from poor quality or user issues. I've been using the microUSB that was with my 2010 Samsung Fascinate.. and it's still kicking just fine.

    Great find! Can't believe I didn't think of it myself lol. Now when my phone isn't charging on the end table my DS4's will be . Just so used to my DS3's not being compatible to my phone charger , honestly never gave it any thought.
