PS3 gamers keen to make sure their PS3 controller never runs out of battery power during a critical gameplay moment can now buy a new innovative product that aims to put an end to their fears.
I use them in my spare 360 controller.
They are very good.
I don´t care what you write, Jeremy Gerard, showing up with an avatar like that I´m listening!
My controller never runs out of power, if it does then connecting the cable to my PS3 isn't really all that hard.
i charge my PS3 controller once every month compare to xbox360 controller which i charge every 2 weeks.
But that gadget is pretty cool.
well I rarely have to charge my PS3 controller either but then again I rarely use my PS3!
i played both console a lot. in terms of time i spent playing, yes both the same.
nifty, but i can't say i'd ever feel the need to pick one up. even with a multiplayer scenario, i can't imagine needing this.
I think it lasts up to 72 hours? the ps3 controller charge.. I just charge one while I use the other.
I might get some for my phone. that's about it.
Maybe for rumble.
The picture of the "USB cell" shows it being or regular USB size, so that it can plug into a pc/lappy/whatever.
Now, nowhere does it state you can change it into a USBmini adaptor (to plug into sixaxis) and if that's the case, I didn't see any AA bateries when I opened up my ps3 controler.
But these are nicely suited for the Wii remote, as that thing just eats bateries by the 8 hours.
And by the by, the story about these batteries is about a year old.
My ps3 controller always lasts a long time and when it does run out the cord is always long enough to reach the controller.
Even if you sit a mile away from the tv would it really hurt to sit 5 feet away from the tv while your controllers charging?
Ok who are the people APPROVING THESE STORIES - because this is the dumbest thing I've seen here on the site.
--FOR ONE PS3 controllers do not take AA batteries. -The Xbox 360 does. This in no way shape or form does anything for a PS3 controller!!!
Who Approved this, because they surely don't own a PS3. Now if someone would have took the time to go the website - http://www.usbcell.com/
you would see that this is meant to charge through USB, but then after charged it's meant to be used as an AA battery.
--I REPEAT THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH A PS3 CONTROLLER, AS A PS3 CONTROLLER DOES NOT USE AA BATTERIES. THE 360 DOES.
Yup! Smells like some genuine BS.
But who approved this?
