Dim is probably about 20% brightness.

 

Sony said the Dim setting is 50% brightness.

I can't be bothered digging up the tweet but Yosp mentioned that developers have the ability to turn the lightbar off. It's possible, but we don't have the option as users.

 

Maybe one day they'll give us access.

idk if I'd risk putting El Cheapo batteries in my PS4 controller.

 

Seems like Sony already did.  :rofl:

Oh Really? I didn't know that. Seems pretty dim for 50% though.

 

Still, the lightbar i no where close to the kind of battery drain that many folks assume.

Very easy to change over, 4 screws on the back, one ribbon cable for the light bar and then you swap the battery. Rated at 2000mah compared to Sony's 1000mah. Seriously doubt they are really 2000mah, but even if averaging 1500mah it should add an hour or two before needing to charge again.

 

The only annoying thing is 99% one of the triggers will pop out when you disassemble and it has an annoying wee spring you have to line up. Bit footery, but a minute or two of patience and you're fine.

 

Now to charge both up and see.

Word of warning I think these batteries are even worse than those in the DS4 after a lot of testing.

 

Maybe some chinese knock offs are better than others but not the ones I bought. Will not be modding my new DS4. It's easy to unplug the lightbar cable mind you, if anyone wants more battery and is playing a game that doesn't need it.

This might depend on where people play but I've never really had much of a problem with playing games while connected to the console. Just buy an extra long charge cable.

Either the battery is 2000mah or it isn't... if its worse than the original, it isn't, or the charger for some reason isn't capable of charging it. You could try to connect it to a 2.1A iPad or other tablet charger. Connecting it to a proper computer charger like we use on LiPo rc batteries would be able to tell it's real capacity though, but I'm not sure if LiPo chargers are compatible with LiIon.

 That'll give you A and V, but it can't really tell you may. Only way to do that is by cycling the battery in a computer charger.
