Thanks, trying to extend the life that my very first original early on PS3, which has constantly worked great and I want to save it that way.

They won"t fee on "any old" USB port. The joystick itself will certainly not charge uneven the port supports some type of distinct handshake. I believe the port and controller execute some negotiating regarding how lot power have the right to be ceded (don"t quote me on that though).

 

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

 

For my controllers I have a PS3 controller charging device. They space cheap top top amazon/ ebay, most likely $10 - $15. You may need to administer a USB wall wart though.

Like ps4 it probably doesn"t treatment what device you use, however you need a fee cable, a data cable doesn"t work-related properly. Of course the cable you use on your console must work fine, simply plug it into a wall surface wart, computer, or whatever.

I have the right to confirm the you can"t just plug lock into any type of USB port v power, i tried my switch, wall surface warts, and direct USB sockets and also no red lights. You need a particular PS3 friendly charger the will execute a handshake through the controllers. Will try charging them one at a time for now while PS3 gaming and then will certainly buy one of the over chargers.

I plug my PS3 controllers into regular USB ports all the time. I think the confusion is that part cables don"t assistance charging, only data. As long as you have actually a cable that supports charging, you should have the ability to charge lock in anything.

 

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

Just kidding! While my Switch will certainly not charge PS3 controllers as soon as the mechanism is off (as it will it"s very own Pro Controller) it will charge them as soon as the system is on, which I have been doing.

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

Also, my PS4 controllers are just charged making use of my tablet"s usb charger, the charges fine.

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

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

 

But the suggest is, the these friggin" things carry out not charge on typical ports, together I remember, and as others have attested, above. Exactly how brain-dead is Sony to carry out this? I just don"t acquire it, return the system is still fun.

I"m a little bit late come the party, however I fee my PS3 controllers with my PS4 in standby mode. I"ve always found that stupid the the PS3 controllers only charge if the PS3 is on, yet they take a couple of hours come charge fully and I hardly ever play for an ext than 45 minute at a time. So currently I placed my PS4 on standby mode and plug the PS3 charger into the PS4 USB port.

 

Hint: this only works if you have a PS4.
