Can I charge my PS3 controller with - my USB Cell phone charger?

Plugged to the wall?

Wouldnt it charge faster than charging it through the PS3?

What the PS3 has IS a Mini-USB port. You might be confusing it with Micro-USB which is what most modern phones have.

I wouldn't attempt this myself as the voltage could be different and damage the boards, but go ahead and try :D

@Jx1010

Does it fit? If so then probably.

If it fits it sits.

Would not try. Each charger is rated differently and sends a different amount to what is being charged.
It could either do nothing...and not charge it very well or it could fry it.
I hooked an old router once on a power line that was meant for an old cable box....started smoking 10 seconds later.
