Playstation 4 controllers do all kinds of cool things, but those nifty features can drain the battery pretty fast. This video shares nine simple tips for getting the most out of each charge.
In this video from kipkay’s YouTube channel, the popular DIYer shows off some helpful hints for squeezing a little more game time out of your controller before you have to plug it in. Most of these require very little effort and can be done in the Playstation 4’s menus. For example, you can turn the controller’s speaker volume all the way down, turn down the brightness of the Light Bar, and set the automatic controller shutoff timer go off after only 10 minutes of inactivity. Some of the tips are a little more DIY-like, and should only be attempted if you’re willing to void your controller’s warranty. Still, even if you only use a couple of these, you’re bound to get some more time with your controller.
