The time it takes to charge a PS4 controller depends on several factors, including the current charge level of the controller’s battery, the type of charging method used, and the power source.

On average, it takes approximately 3 to 4 hours to fully charge a PS4 controller using the standard charging cable that comes with the console . This time frame can vary slightly based on the specific conditions mentioned earlier.

If you’re using a different charging method, such as a charging dock or an external charging station, the charging time may vary. Some charging docks or stations can charge multiple controllers simultaneously and may have their own specifications for charging times.

By the way, the PS4 controller has a built-in battery indicator light. When you connect the controller to a power source for charging, the light will turn orange, indicating that the charging process has started. Once the battery is fully charged, the light will turn white or turn off the light, depending on the controller version.
