How To Fix Dim Replacement Led's On A Wireless Controller?
Posted 17 June 2010 - 01:16 AM
I have done a few wired controllers so I never anticipated this problem.
CG Version Wireless w/ Microsoft Play and Charge
LED's: 80mcd 3.0v w/ 3.4 max

Green is usually 2.8 to 3v
The rechargeable batteries only put out 1.8v (i think) a piece when fresh. Regular AA's put out about 2.2-2.3v when fresh.
With my blue led's, I can tell how low my batteries are getting by how much the brightness starts to go down. Once they have completely faded away I can save those to use in a tv remote or something and get some new ones out for the xbox controller.

The reason the blue leds are dim Is because a Cg controller puts out less power, so they will dim when the battery begins to die, also if you are using a rechargeable batterypack it produces 2.1 volts and blue less require 3.3volts same as white, and purple, any other colors work fine and don't dim with a rechargeable battery pack.. The leds will be as bright as possible when the controller is plugged into the pnc charger, but will dim overtime due to lack of power output.. Hope this helps...

These would be the ones I would get.
