    Checking your DS4's battery life

    Sweet, thought this might be of interest to you guys.. little pro tip for those who haven't figured it out yet.

    All you have to do is hold the PS button down like your turning off the system. When the menu appears, the battery life is shown at the bottom of the screen.

    Nice tip!

    Does the controller flash at all when it is low, or does it just die on you without notice?
    Push to test.
    Release to detonate.

    You get a notice on the screen telling you your battery is getting low. I had it happen over the weekend.

    I mentioned this on the podcast(#24) about how the sign pops up on your TV. Quite annoying & also lets be real here the battery life on the DS4 is less than atequate.

    i just got my PS4 and i have a question to do with the controller as well. how do you know when it is fully charged. With the PS3 it would just stop Flashing when done. what about the DS4?

    Also side note, what is the best charger to buy that works best?

    when its fully charged the lightbar on the controller will turn off.

    Wish they had the charging dock that was showing @ the debut & E3 last year. I try to have Sony only products unless a 3rd party maker just is that much better or the only option.
