longer PS3 controller charging cable?

11 replies 6792 views Edited Dec 27, 2009

Hello,

 

Does anyone know where I can buy an extended charging  cable for my PS3 controller? The stock cable included with my PS3 slim is too short.

 

My budget is $12.00; however, if the cable cost more than that, then I'll have to pay for it.

 

Thank you for helping me,

Spartan

I'll second Monoprice, they're very good at quality cheap cables. I think the longest they have is 15 feet, which should be more than enough.

You can probably find a longer cable at walmart,Future shop or best buy. Energizer usually makes them and they're dirt cheap. (approx. $12.00)

you could probably find one cheaper, but there may be a better solution for you.

 

Since USB ports have a standard electric output, anything with a USB port will work. I often leave my laptop on the coffee table and plg my PS3 controller in there. I've also used my cell phone charger that plugs into the wall to charge my controller while I continue to play.

I got a simple USB extension cord from a dollar store. It's as long as the DS3 charging cable, so it gives me double the length.

I bought the cable packages separately for my PS3's, it comes with a really good HDMI cable and a long quality cable for your controller.... they sell them at BestBuy and everywhere they sell PS3 accessories.
