The specs on this are a wish and a dream. I mean c'mon, 1800mAh? The original is rated 570mAh. A decent Li-Poly pouch cell just a little larger than *the plastic shell this one is contained within* is only 1200. Like most cheap cells, it's a completely made-up capacity that is supposed to be impressive and better than anything else you can find, but will never live up to the claim. Why not 9000mAh? It's just as close to reality. It's a flat lie, and it's insulting.
Next, it showed up with a voltage of 2.73V. For a Li-Ion cell, that's dead. Not "low", mind you, but like "nothing left... at all" dead. Reputable battery manufacturers store cells at a 40-80% charge because that's the sweet spot for longevity. It's never a good sign to receive a cell less than 3.0V.
After charging it fully via the PS3, I tried to use it a few days later. It was already low. So I charged it back up, came back later to play a game, and got less than half an hour of gameplay before it died completely.
What I don't understand is, why bother marketing junk like this? Charge twice as much - heck, thrice as much! - and deliver a product that actually works. Or just take $3 from my wallet and leave a sticky note saying "thanks!" At least then I wouldn't have to properly dispose of a useless battery.
So I cleaned that one too and put it to charge and this one did charge after several minutes. I then opened the first non chargeable controller and I didn't find any goo around the battery, thinking maybe the battery blew up or something but no that wasn't it the controller board was clean. So I thought hey if the second one works and this one doesn't than it must be the battery. When I got the battery I put it on the non charging controller, waited for 30 minutes, and nothing. I disassembled my second controller and put in the new battery into that one, worked perfectly!
In conclusion, if you aren't getting any juice out of this try and see if you can get a hold of another controller for comparison. My next step is to take the board out and see if the 'PS' button is being obstructed. Maybe there is goo or something blocking the ps button from making contact with the board to turn on the controller. The goo thing on the joystick is a thing, I have read on several forums that this happens, what is it I have no idea. Hope this helps anyone with the same problem.
If your PlayStation remote batteries are dead, this is a great option vs buying another remote, from a price perspective.
It is a bit tricky, however, to get the remote back together. After fumbling around with it a bit, I was able to reassemble it. Search YouTube, and I have a video on how to change this battery!
i noticed someone said they got a battery where the red and black wires were backwards. i did not have that problem.
update, I am super glad that they sent an extra charging cable, in my experience they did, apparently the cable was my only problem in the first place, ... so the battery last just as good as my other one. it is still in my controller.
