Great question.  I'll try it when I get home.  I would think so.

you i guess there the same port so in thory it could work. but there is also the chance your controller blows up. umm ill let one of you guys try it before i do.

I have actually tried and it did not work. You would think it would, but nope. You can charge it on a PC though. I guess the sixaxis is looking for some kind of computer before charging.

even though they both use USB B ports, some devices such as (controllers) need a higher voltage to charge itself than other devices. otherwise it won't charge it at all. it shouldn't do any damage to it though...

you could charge it through your computer using the usb cable - which brings up another point --- can you use your ps3 controller as a gamepad on your computer?

Yes, you can. Also, if you have a laptop or desktop w/ bluetooth capability, you can use it that way also.

this falls under that basics of electronics. You need to know the poloarity and the voltage of the charger before you try anything. You may just fry your controller if the voltage is too high. Also, if the polarity isn't right, it could either fry the circutry, or simply not work. So, unless you know the charging requirements, or you just have extra controllers that you don't want, I wouldn't try it without more data.

maybe he does not want to take a chance of breaking his controller... and maybe the forums is a place to post questions among other things

I have a Razr V3xx and it worked when I charged it. I also charge mine on my pc.

I use my PSP cable to charge my controller. All it really is a cable called the mini-USB. Anything that uses it will work with the controller.

I have charged my controller with my blu tooth headset charger also, and charged my phone and headset from the ps3.

I tried this and it don't blow up. Don't work i tried it too when i don't find my usb cable. Now I'm gonna try to charge it with the usb of the razr or a camera. If it work ill post it.
