The DualShock 4 is an ingenious piece of technology from Sony, which features a built-in touchpad and a sharing button that allows you to capture or stream your game directly from the console. Thanks to the wonderful technology, you no longer need to be connected to your system. Sit on your couch and appreciate the freedom of having a PS4 wireless controller. That does mean, however, you will have to charge PS4 controller.
Charging your PS4 controller is simple. The easiest way to do this is with a USB cable (the PS4 console comes with one to go with your controller, but you can buy additional ones from the retailers). Plug one end into your PS4 controller and the other end into the USB port of the PS4, and start charging DualShock 4.
Note that the PS4 must be powered on or in idle mode to charge the controller. If it is charging in sleep mode, the light bar will flash orange. After charging is completed, the lightbar of your PS4 controller will turn off. It takes approximately two hours to charge the controller if initially there was no remaining charge.
Alternatively, charging docks can be purchased, some of which can charge several controllers at the same time. The official Sony DualShock charging station is easy to use: place one or two controllers in the docking station, connecting through the port on the bottom of the controller, and plug the base into a wall outlet to start to charge PS4 controller. Other charging accessories from external manufacturers may work similarly, but always be sure to read the manual before attempting to use one for the first time.
