I received 3 free PS3 very first party controllers native a freind last night. Ns don"t desire to placed any additional strain ~ above the power circuits of my lone remaining fat PS3 by make the efforts to charge multiple controllers when gaming.

You are watching: How to charge a ps3 controller without ps3

 

Could ns plug mine PS3 controllers into any kind of old USB socket and they will protect against charging when full?

 

Any reason I couldn"t charge them turn off my Nintendo move USB ports, which will certainly charge as soon as the device is off?

 

Thanks, do the efforts to prolong the life that my an initial original beforehand PS3, i beg your pardon has constantly worked an excellent and I desire to store it the way.

They won"t charge on "any old" USB port. The joystick itself will certainly not charge unless the port supports some type of one-of-a-kind handshake. I believe the port and controller perform some negotiating as to how much power can be yielded (don"t quote me on that though).

 

I don"t know if it will charge top top the Switch.

 

For my controllers I have actually a PS3 controller charging device. They are cheap ~ above amazon/ ebay, most likely $10 - $15. You might need to provide a USB wall wart though.

Like ps4 it more than likely doesn"t care what device you use, however you require a charge cable, a data cable doesn"t job-related properly. Of course the cable you use on your console have to work fine, just plug it into a wall surface wart, computer, or whatever.

I can confirm that you can"t simply plug them into any kind of USB port through power, ns tried mine switch, wall warts, and also direct USB sockets and also no red lights. You require a details PS3 familiar charger the will perform a handshake with the controllers. Will try charging castle one in ~ a time for currently while PS3 gaming and then will certainly buy among the over chargers.

I plug my PS3 controllers into consistent USB ports every the time. I think the man is that some cables don"t assistance charging, just data. As long as you have a cable the supports charging, friend should have the ability to charge castle in anything.

 

I fee my PS3 controllers in both my laptop and also my TV"s USB ports. There to be a time once I left lock plugged into my TV all the time as soon as I wasn"t making use of them, so they"d always be charged. I don"t remember ever plugging them right into the PS3 at all, actually. Maybe as soon as I first got mine system.

I always and only, fee my PS3 controllers utilizing my PC. I have been doing the for ages.

Also, mine PS4 controllers are just charged utilizing my tablet"s usb charger, the charges fine.

I"m pretty sure any kind of 500mA resource should charge your controllers using proper cables.

I have actually a PS3 (last-gen 500gb) that i bought new and barely used. Ns haven"t played in over a year, as result of severely-changing life scenarios (who cares?).

 

But the suggest is, that these friggin" things do not fee on traditional ports, together I remember, and also as others have attested, above. Just how brain-dead is Sony to carry out this? I simply don"t obtain it, return the mechanism is tho fun.

I"m a little bit late to the party, yet I charge my PS3 controllers v my PS4 in standby mode. I"ve constantly found that stupid that the PS3 controllers just charge while the PS3 is on, however they take a couple of hours to charge totally and I seldom play for much more than 45 minute at a time. So now I placed my PS4 top top standby mode and also plug the PS3 charger into the PS4 USB port.

 

Hint: this only works if you have a PS4.
