I opened up one of my ds4's and yanked the ribbon cable off the led. I can get 2 sometimes 3 hours more use between charges. (have to use powerA dock that charges through bottom port as usb is disabled.)
That controller is obviously sending a no button is being pressed at this time command to the PS4 at all times. I suspect it is also recieving and processing the audio signals even if the headphones are not connected. It could also be sending a do not rumble command.
It is baffling. What else could be using so much power when it just sits there on the end table? No Led, no button, no sound, no nothing.
I'll add that what ever tech they are using should be labled as a failure and a flaw. It is bad and they should feel bad. It should not be supported in any future device. I've had the PS4 for close to a year now and the poor batttery life of the DS4 has been it's single biggest flaw and failure.
