The PlayStation controller, also called DualShock 4, is a fantastic controller. It is extremely comfortable and responsive for gamers. It can be used on PS4, PC, or as a phone controller using Bluetooth. In addition, gamers can also use it with the PS5 when playing PS4 games. However, like any other Bluetooth controller, it also needs to be charged occasionally. Thankfully, charging your PS4 controller is pretty much simpler if you have the proper USB cable. However, many users are not sure whether the controller is charging. If you are one of them, then this guide will take you through some of the best ways to ensure your PS4 controller is charging. Let us go.

Methods to Know If PS4 Controller is Charging

When you put your PS4 controller in charge, you can see the slow blinking light on the controller. However, it is still not clear whether it is charging. So, what are the best methods to know if the PS4 controller is charging? Let’s find out here:

1. The very first and easy trick to know if the PS4 controller is charging is to check the light bar on the controller. When it is in the rest mode, it should blink slowly in the orange color. Once it is fully charged, the light bar will turn off. Then, you can disconnect the USB cable from the controller.

2. The next method to check is to hold down the PS button on your controller and the status will show on the top right corner of your screen.

These are the only methods to know if the PS4 controller is charging. If you’re using any charging port or a different type of USB cable, the bar may behave differently. However, the basic principle remains the same, which is a flashing light bar. It shows the controller is charging and a solid light bar means it is fully charged.

However, if you cannot see any indication that your PS4 controller is charging, then here are the most common reasons:

– Faulty battery 

– Faulty USB-A cable

– Faulty charging ports

That’s it for this guide on how to know if the PS4 controller is charging.
