Does anyone knows if the battery of a brand new unused dualshock 4 made in 2017 will deteriorate? I'm not sure whether to get the cheaper v2 uefa limited edition or steel black made in 2017 or the newer titanium blue back in 2019 which costs like $12 more. My V2 red bought in 2016, battery is down to 2 to 3hrs playtime per charge whereas the jet black v2 which came with launch ps4 pro depletes only 1 bar after 3hrs.

If it's sealed, there's a chance the battery is dead. Get a newer one.

Thanks. Initially I wanted to replace battery but can only find 1000mah from local seller, $27. Also no idea if it's indeed brand new and can last more than 3hrs per charge. The only same size 2000mah battery is from amazon uk but cannot ship to sg.

Those $20+ to $30+ are oem and according to reviews, they are problematic like dc, can't hold charge and buttons not responsive. Original $50+ at least for export models and carousell with local warranty. Shops $67 to $85 excluding limited editions. The latest 2019 colors are $85 from Sony or $68 from Amazon US.

Oh good to know, so still safer to buy original. Remember buying OEM DS3s for PS3 at $10+ they were fine but after a few months sold off the PS3 so dunno about their longevity.

I bought oem ds3 and a psmove gun attachment 2 months ago. Works fine too. I don't intend to sell ps3. Still have ps3 games haven't plat yet.

Do you know if the dualshock 4 charging station uk version will work here? I see quite a few going for $20 in carousell. The plug looks like normal 3 pin.

Dun say UK ver, US ver also works, I used to have one of those 2 DS3 2 Move controller charging docks with US 2-flat pin plug, worked fine cuz of the universal voltage AC-DC converter/psu. Therefore the key is not the plug (can buy adaptor for <$1), but the psu.

Given the current covid19 situation, good time or bad time to buy PC parts? Upcoming Tech Week alot of slashed prices, some look quite attractive though I'm not in the market.

I figured sure got pple showoff on youtube if they had won. But that timing is kinda weird on a working day and the quiz was over very quickly.

Only 2 winners worldwide or 2 from each country I'm not sure. The terms are confusing. If got tie, they need to answer a 2nd question through email. Whatever happens we won't ever know lols.
