How to charge PS5 controller: If you have a PS5 and want to charge your controller, it’s easy peasy! The controller, called DualSense, is super cool with its special vibrations. But, because of these cool things, it uses up the battery fast. No worries, though.

Take the cable that comes with the PS5 and plug the USB-C end into the port on the top back of the controller.
