    [Answered] Charge controllers with PS3 off help?

    Any way to charge game controllers with the PS3 off? I hooked up a powered USB hub, and the controllers still won't charge unless the PS3 is on.

    PS3 4.11

    Answer: It can't be charged with the power off. Or you need to buy a PS3Charge station (names may differ). They are made just to charge te PS3 controller.

    You can charge your controller even with a computer, using your hub. Obiouvsly if you was expecting a charge using your hub plugged on your ps3 when off, it will not work..

    Or you could get a Common Charger (DC5V on power rails, D+ and D- lines shorted) and leave it on the tap for the night.

    My Galaxy Tab 8.9's charger works just fine for this purpose.

    Exactly, I just charge my controllers while I'm on my PC.

    Only downside is when connected to a PC is that you need to resync them. Thing i did is go to Intertoys etc and buy a cheap ass 5V USB adapter. It works perfectly!
