Are you an enthusiast? Interested in trying new things or your Xbox 360 USB port might be damaged. You might become frustrated with what to do in that case? There are many alternative ways to charge your Xbox 360 controller. One of the ways is to charge it with the help of a phone charger.
Xbox 360 uses an advanced system in its controller in order to enhance the experience of gaming. It uses the latest technology of the D-pad which can be adapted according to the user’s gameplay.
So the battery of the controller should also be a stronger one in order to help the user to play the game for a long time.
Can we connect the controller to a phone charger?
Before we want to connect our Xbox 360 controller to the wall charger, we should first know whether it can be charged with the help of the mobile charger or not. It is quite possible to do so.
We only need a stable connection through which the USB can get power from. It can be either a PC, Mobile charger, or any other device that gives power through a USB cable.
A phone charger usually matches with the required power that a controller needs to get fully charged. The power that a controller needs to charge efficiently is about 5V. A simple mobile charger is capable of doing so.
How to connect
In order to connect the mobile charger to the controller, you simply need a phone charger and a micro USB cable otherwise the controller will not charge. So, only android chargers can charge it.
Simply plug the charger into the wall socket and insert the micro USB cable into the port of the mobile charger and the other end into the controller. Notice that your controller will start charging.
How much time will the controller take to charge after you connect it to the mobile charger? It depends on two things:
- Quality of the mobile charger
- Quality of the cable
So make sure in order to charge your controller in time, you use a good quality charger and good cable. Make sure that the charger and cable both are from a good company.
