How to tell when Move Controller has fully charged

12 Replies 28,619 Views Created 21-09-2010

I've synced them up (arrived this morning) but can't find anywhere which tells you how to tell when they are charged! I know first charge takes longest but does the flashing red light go solid or change to green or something?

 

Sorry if this is a noobish question!

if the cotroller is off then the red light will go off when it's fully charged, if the controller is on then the red light will stop flashing and stay on. Move controllers take a lot longer to charge than dual shock 3's via usb, I got the sony charge station which charges them much faster

It simply stop's flashing.  

 

Doesn't go green it remains red.

 

When it is fully charged the light stays on instead of flashing.

Cheers for your help, I'm new to Move as you can tell but I'm really excited to give it a go, got 2 move controllers, Sports Champions, loads of demos in preparation (didn't get starter kit as didn't need another eye camera!) and will be getting Resi 5 move edition, I heard it takes about 5 hours for the first charge?

If you have a long enough charging cable you can play with the move controller while its charging, thats what I did and it works fine, although I have a 3 meter charging cable, if you have a shorter one it may prove a bit difficult

Just the one that was bundled with the PS3 so it is incredibly short although I've had a go at browsing the xmb using the gyroscope and the likes.

When the light stops blinking *red light* similar to that of a normal ps3 controller... you know when it's done charging after the lights stop blinking.

 

Read the PS move manual m8! :)

I recommend you buy the charge station for the move controllers. Otherwise you'll be taking a lot of breaks when playing games! You can find some in my signature!
