The Avenger is an external adaptor with an enhanced trigger system, which allows you to control buttons with your trigger fingers - meaning your thumbs never have to leave the analog sticks.

PlayStation 4 Controller FAQs

What is the Battery Life on PS4 Controllers?

The battery life on the DualShock 4 is perfect for short bursts of gaming, lasting an average of 4-5 hours. If you're a more heavy gamer, we recommend buying the Venom Battery Pack and following our guide on preserving battery life below.


How do I make my PS4 controller battery life last longer?

There are several ways you're able to do to improve the battery life of your DualShock 4 controller. The below options can be found on your system under Settings > Devices > Controllers.


- Automatically turn off your PS4 Controllers after a set time

- Reduce the brightness of the Light Bar

- Disable Vibration

- Reduce the volume of your controller

- Buy a DualShock 4 Battery Pack


How can I get better grip on the analog sticks?

Honestly, the only real answer is buying some thumb grips; they're relatively cheap and can stop your thumbs slipping off the thumbsticks. Using these grips will also improve the life of your controller as many people have reported "disintegrating thumbsticks" after long periods of gaming. We would highly recommend buying the ORB Thumb Grips or alternately, you should check out our range of Thumb Grips to choose the one that best suits you.


Do PS4 controllers work on the PS3?

Simple answer, yes. Previously you had to use a cable to get the controller to work, but now it works wireless - as you would expect. All you need to do is register the DualShock 4 as a Bluetooth device by holding the PS and Share buttons simultaneously, whilst scanning for Bluetooth Devices. Beware though, the DualShock 4's vibration and Sixaxis motion control aspects won't work on PlayStation 3 consoles.


Does the PS4 Controller work on PC?

It can. However it's not quite as simple as plugging it in and hoping it works. Luckily, there is a relatively easy way of getting the controller to work for Windows. Carl Nelson at hardcoreware.com gives a 7 step guide on how to set up your controller to work with a PC. Read his article "How to use the PS4 Controller in Windows " to set up your PS4 controller to work with your PC.
