Controller question

4 replies 112 views Edited Aug 26, 2013

 Wondering what the average playtime for the PS3 controller is before it requires a charge and how long does it take to get a full charge out of them? Thanks.

 

 

I may be old, but I still love to game.

Hmmm, well, the controller seems to take about an hour to full charge, perhaps a bit more, but not much, and usage time is quite good, I'd say more than a week for me (with at least couple of hours' play per day).

 

Obviously all this is assuming its battery is healthy.

For me the battery last longer then expected, I have two controllers and charge one and play with the other, unless someone else is using the other controller of course.  I would say then numbers are fair that the other poster stated, I get about a week of usage out of mine before having to recharge, I usually will play about 5 to 6 hours on it plus watch a few movies and my controllers are 6 to 7 years old.
