Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (80GB) Console
Battery in controller is low, plug in controller to usb...It was plugged in all nite long. How do I know if the battery in the controller is charging or charged?

The dead give away for a dying controller is the red light on the numbers will flash.
When you plug your controller in and hit your PS button, at the top you'll see a controller symbol and a battery icon. If the battery bars are moving then it's charging. When it's fully charged it will display 3 bars solid even when plugged in.
I've been wrong before; but I'm 99% sure you cannot turn off the system and have the controller charge. As far as I know the system must be on while charging the controller. From my experience it takes about an hour or 2 to get it fully charged.
Good luck and if i've helped you please give me 4 thumbs up!
