Just randomly happened today after years of use. My apex isn't lighting up when I power everything on. I tried plugging it in various places to get juice going into it but nothing. I tried holding down the button as I plugged the Apex into my laptop but no blue light, nothing.

That sad news brings me to a new question. Can I use my old xim edge in place of? Or is something not going to be compatible? I was remote playing my apex to my PS5.

That might work with Xbox's play anywhere using an Xbox 360 controller but I think remote play requires a DS4v2 and edge doesn't support this.

Google shows that rewasd might let you use an Xbox controller with remote play via a virtual ds4.
