PlayStation has patented a wireless charger for DualSense Controller

Written by Ankit Gaba

Sony recently patented a wireless charger for the DualSense Controller which states “A wireless charging adapter that can snap onto a computer game controller can be inductively coupled to a charging base to wirelessly recharge a battery in the controller. The adapter also can include keys that mirror keys on the controller so that a gamer can remove the adapter with a controller from the charging base, keep the adapter on the controller, and use both the controller keys and adapter keys to control a computer game.”


This means you can wirelessly charge your DualSense controller, and there are “X” and “O” buttons on the back of the DualSense controller too if this image in the patent is to be taken seriously.

As you can see the controller has “X” and “O” buttons on it’s back too, which seems interesting since it’s the first time a PlayStation controller will have buttons on it’s back too.

The patent also states that “Accordingly, an assembly includes at least one game controller that includes a hand-holdable controller housing with at least one battery and plural control keys manipulable to input commands, including at least a first key manipulable to input a first command, to a computer game console. At least one adapter is mechanically engageable with the game controller and is electrically engageable with at least one electrical component in the controller housing. The adapter includes at least one adapter key manipulable to input the first command to the computer game console.”

This means that the DualSense controller will have a rechargeable battery, and you can charge it wirelessly too.

There will also be a USB C Port which can be used to charge the controller as we have seen in the DualSense official reveal.
