DualShock 4 BATTERY PROBLEM SOLVED

controller_01

It’s fair to say the DualShock 4 has been universally loved by gamers regardless of their platform, however PS4 users in particular who use the controller regularly have found there to be one disappointing aspect.

I myself also feel that the battery life is simply not good enough, I remember using my DualShock 3 for several days without having to recharge but the DualShock 4 packs a measly 8-10 hours off a full charge

Whilst the new standby feature allows for recharging, many are still frustrated because of the fact that the light bar is always consuming the battery life and it’s arguably a pointless feature.

Now this is all probably the result of having such a long lasting controller on PS3 and now anything lower seems disappointing, but a solution may have popped up already.

Nyko has revealed a new powerpak for the PlayStation 4’s primary input method that should get rid of any battery related problems. It will launch later this year for £12 ($20) and it clips straight onto the back of the controller and connects to it’s micro USB port.

Has the battery life been an issue for you? And if so will you be picking up this new peripheral? Let us know in the comments below.

  1. not a problem for me i game in my chair where my laptop is at so i just simply plug it into my laptop if its goes to dying while im playing so it charges and i keep going without missing a beat

  2. Since I’m getting my “PS4” as a Birthday present to myself in March I wouldn’t no but I have been seeing around people complaining about it and this would be a suitable solution. I don’t play more then 5hours at a time so it doesn’t apply to me at all, but I’m sure it bothers or will player a load since it doesn’t apply to me “GOOD LUCK GUYS” :p jkl ;).

    que aburrido tener que estar cargando a diario el controlo para poder jugar y en cuanto a la luz del ps4 es algo meramente de estetica; por lo que es absurdo, los jugadores buscamos mas calidad, mas duracion, no adornitos!
