Title: Dual Shock 4 Question [OBsIV]
Post by: 3MIX_Edge on 09:57 PM - 11/11/14
I always have my DS4 controller plugged into my XIM4 but am annoyed at the controller needing to be fully charged factor.

I was wondering, if I opened the controller up and cut the wire that connects to the battery, would the XIM4 and the DS4 work, would it stop me needing to have the controller charged or would it work negatively?

XIM4 will keep your controller charged as you play and the DS4 retains charge for awhile when you don't play. Are you finding that you need to always recharge it?

batteries do lose their capacity when constantly being connected to the power station, maybe your DS4s battery is already on such a low capacity that it can only maintain power for a short time

id try to remove the battery from the DS4, or if warranty is still there replace the controller
before doing that try it out without the XIM, DS4 in wireless mode and see for how long it can run before dropping out, eg use its audio port to put it under load
