Like all cheap batteries, reviews are mixed whether it really works or is fake. Not too bad for $10. Has anyone tried it?

No idea. I have considered doing something like that or finding a larger battery to jam in there but I haven't taken the time to open the controller yet.

I have hooked the external batteries to the controller before.

Same amount of power in this one.

I did get the Nyko external pack for $10 that attaches to the controller. It just adds quite a bit of bulk

Agreed. Aside from trading off between 2 controllers and always leaving one charging I don't have much useful to say. Not sure why they feel the need to eat so much power.

The rumble pack, bluetooth, sensor light, touch pad that is always on looking for input, and the AMP that powers the little speaker in the controller are all culprit. I was actually looking at some modding videos on Youtube. I might open the controller and unsolder the LED light and remove the amp. Actually I think the AMP is required to use a headset in the controller. But turning off the vibration can dramatically improve life

Do some games give you the option to turn off vibration? I thought it did. I turned off the annoying speaker in mine and turned the LEDs down to minimum since your can't turn them off.

It is likely the gyros as well. Even if the game isn't using them they are likely continually polling for motion. The PS3 controller did all of this except for the sound and lights but it didn't suck this bad.

I don't think I've played a game yet where the PS4 controller speaker added anything.
Oooo, in Last of Us it clicks when you turn the flashlight on/off. How impressive.

I had to turn it off almost immediately. I can't remember what game I was playing, but it would scream terrible quality voices through it at random. I think it was that 2D shooter where you rescue humans and the levels circled around?

Either way, sounded really annoying and I never touched it again.

I think Last of Us was the only game that actually makes decent use of the motion sensor. Having to shake the controller to get the light to stop flickering was immersive. The Killzone turning wheels to open doors was just annoying. Really disliked the paint can in Infamous as well.

Wonder how much power could be saved to just turn off that sensor since it basically has to spin up a gyro the entire time the controller is on.

Might've been resogun.
