Yep, the PS5 can charge your DualSense controller even when the console is off, as long as it's in Rest Mode. Just make sure the USB ports are set to supply power in Rest Mode settings.

Nah, it doesn't charge when it's fully off. Keep it in Rest Mode for that sweet charging action.

From personal experience, as long as your PS5 is in Rest Mode, it charges the controller just fine. I've never had an issue with mine.

Absolutely! Just pop your PS5 into Rest Mode, and the controller will charge. It's like the console's taking a nap and holding your controller's hand.
