4 out of 5 eggsFaulty Battery

Pros: Seems very well built. The only small wireless perfect for the young kids. My 3 year old can finally reach all the buttons without setting down controller and loves it.

Cons: ONLY WORKS WIRED. After several attempts to charge there is no power to controller as soon as it's unpluged. Battery is dead. I had the little gamer all excited about his own kid sized control now we have to RMA it. My bad.

Other Thoughts: To be fair this problem is wide spread, not just this vendor. Read other reviews. Some of the retail stores and game stores have stopped stocking and the PS3 version is no longer on Power A's website. I see them on A****n still and E*** but one vendor is selling them knowing the defect. LiPo battery cells will not recover if they drop below 3 volts. Zero in this case. Could be bad batch of baterries, old ones (ideally best stored at 85% charge), or a small draw down by the controller. Hopfully Power A will correct this because this is a great controller otherwise.

2 out of 5 eggsBuy at your own risk

Pros: The small design is perfect for smaller hands. The stick positions are more like a 360. It looks cool. The lights on the controller are default off and can be turned on and off. Feels solid.

Cons: Battery in the thing was dead on arrival and has never charged. Few other online reviews have similar stories. It can be used if it's plugged into a USB port (any usb port, doesn't need to be the PS3.) The wireless dongle is required to be plugged into the PS3. It can't wake the PS3 with the home button press like an official controller.

Other Thoughts: I bought this from a local B&M and all I can say is it works with a lot of ifs and not at all as advertised. Two stars because it kind of works. Will update this review or post a new one if swapping batteries is possible.

The controller indicators flash while "charging" and not designated as in use.
