    {tut} DUALSHOCK 4 (DS4) Accumulator

    A Tutorial by PlayStationHAX.it user Reidenschi

    Hello everyone!

    Today I want to tell how to make 2400 mAh accumulator for your DS4.

    We need two mobile phone accumulators "BL-4J" 1200 mAh 3.7v each, one accumulator connector ( I get one from old videocard cooler) and tools for disassembling DS4 and soldering accumulators together.

    In first you need to take off accumulator, accumulator holder and reset button


    (Click Images for Larger View)

    Then solder accumulators in parallel.


    Obtained accumulator fits good in DS4.

    It remains only to assemble gamepad back. I get a little gap . I do not think that this is a big problem.

    Don't forget take original parts in safe place.

    I charge DS4 from 2A 5V adapter and have no problem.

    Charge lasts for 17-18 hours of active play. Checked in Final Fantasy 13 .

    Have fun.

    Yep exactly, I did this to my Dualshoack 3 a couple of weeks ago and the play time is crazy, I was left with a tiny gap but it's hardly noticable and nothing can get in.

    I think its possible to add a button switch to the leds and battery will last x3.

    Ill do that when the good games arrive.

    i Dont use a camera, so no problem.
