Charging your PS3 controller with system off

Your just about to go to bed, your PS3 controller is dead and you sit way too far from your system to plug in the controller while you play. What will you do? There are a few ways to charge your PS3 controller while not playing. (PS3)

THought it'd be about a hidden feature that you can use to charge your controller without keeping our consoles on. Not some stupid bullshit my 8 year old cousin figured out after having the system for 2 days.

lol DUH! or, now wait a minute cuz some might not know this either "how bout turning on power save settings to 2 hrs?" then it turns itself off after giving em a good charge.... smh

I have a controller dock for mine that i use.. I want one that works with the controllers & my pulse headset but cant find it..

I was thinking that PS3 had some feature to keep USB on while its off. Meh I just plug mine into my laptop, it helps while gaming too since the cord is near me and not connected to the Ps3.

In other news, do you think your PS3 might be dead? Before you jump to conclusions, make sure the cord is plugged into an active outlet! Stay tuned for more groundbreaking revelations. Next week: how to assign a controller number to your multiple PS3 controllers. No more second player using the first player controller! Back to you, Jim.

In a more serious note, I'd advise against leaving the PS3 controller plugged into a PC USB for too long - as in, for weeks. Always unplug it when it isn't needed to be charged or you run the risk of frying out your USB. Made that mistake on my last PC.

Hey guy's here's a preview of next weeks article "How to Turn on Your PS3 WITHOUT having to Get Up"
1. Press the big middle button on the controller(if controller is uncharged please refer to last weeks article.)
2. Ask your mom to press the button
3. Make a stick that's long enough to reach the button
4. Buy an Xbox

How did this get approved? This was news, what, 6 years ago?

What a waste of everyone's time.
