You should hook it up to the usb cord and fully charge it before unhooking it.
If you want to get the best charge life out of the controller.

my question and maybe the thread starters question is: as the original controller synce by pressing the ps button only(like to turn the ps3 on)------is there any way to make the new dualshock3 or any other controller for that matter sync to the ps3 system without using the usb cable. to make it so that you only need to press te ps button to turn on the controller and the system WITHOUT THE CABLE

You only have to do the cable thing once as long as you don't sync it with another PS3
