it works, and fixed my controller – Replacement 1800mAh Lithium Battery Pack for PS3 Wireless DualShock Controllers Reviews

Pros:
It seems to hold a charge better than my old battery. I spilt something on my controller and it stopped working, took a chance that it shorted the battery so i added this to my order, ended up lucking out and it worked. Can't complain really
Cons:
I'm not sure if it's an older or newer style or what but this batter was a bit bigger than the one that i took out of the controller. Not a huge deal but i did have to trim away some of the plastic on the inside of the controller, no big deal since the controller wasn't working anyway so i had nothing to lose.
I do agree with the other reviewer, it should have come with some documentation. It's easy enough to do but some people may have a problem taking apart a $60 controller without instructions
Other:
Bottomline:
it works but due to fitment issues i wouldn't get this to install on a controller that is working pretty well, like maybe it doesn't stay charged as long as you want or something like that, but for controllers that are completely dead it's worth a shot or if you know it's the battery then it's worth the few bucks and the trimmed plastic.
