Picture the scene: you’re desperate to jump into a game, but the last time you checked your controller its battery was as empty as a Dominic Cummings excuse. From no charge to full charge can take two hours, so how can you confirm that it the PlayStation 4 controller is charging and, then, when it’s finished?
Here we’ll give you two different ways of finding out this information:
Check on the console
Press and hold the PlayStation button on the controller, whilst it’s charging, and the charge level will show in the bottom, left-hand corner of the screen.
This will animate when the charging process is taking place.
Check on the controller
Take a look around the back of your controller. If the light is gently glowing orange, then it’s charging.
Once charging is complete, the light will turn off.
