Works nicely – Replacement 1800mAh Lithium Battery Pack for PS3 Wireless DualShock Controllers Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Very cheap - Higher capacity than the original battery - Comes with a usb charge cable (it really has just the +5V and ground wires, so it will not work as data cable)
Cons:
None yet.
Other:
The older sixaxis controllers have batteries with the same physical dimensions as this. But the newer sixaxis/ds3 controllers have considerably smaller ones, fitted with an adapter bracket. So just leave the adapter out and the battery will fit nicely, no trimming needed.
Bottomline:
The original battery suddenly died from my sixaxis, so decided to buy this rather than a new 50$ controller or expensive battery from a local store. The controller assembly was a bit tricky but you can find good instructions from google etc. Definately buy this if your battery dies, it works.
