have any of you needed to replace ps3 controllers due to overcharge/ not keeping a charge?

never. I have two official controllers, one third party wireless and two wired. I generally use my official. swapping them when i forget to charge.

I recently bought a move charger (third party, charges up to 2 moves and 2 navigations) and it's so awesome I think I might buy one for my controllers. It's just insane to think I'll never have to worry if my move controllers or my single navigation controller is charged again. It's an entirely different level of convenience.

@hobbes, I've never had to replace a controller for that reason or any other reason. I still have my non-dualshock controller I got with my fat PS3 back in 2007 I believe.

It happened to me a few weeks ago. My kids have taken my 3 PS3 controllers into their bath (I dunno how they did this without me noticing), so they basically scrapped all them. Turns out that after a few days, I was able to charge them, but as soon as I removed the power cable, they would stop working. I received a new controller battery I purchased from ebay last week (3$) and I'm writing a post on PS3Blog on how to replace the battery. The post should be live in a few days.
