Hi, I've got the model with no motors for vibration, is there any way to place motors in the board?
thanks!

Hmmm. That is a toughy. If there are solder joints where rumble motors would be then there is a possibility of using that connection. If not then I don't think it would be an easy task to add them considering they turn on when told to by the console

I know this is an old post, but if you still have the controller, is there any way you could take a picture of the back of the pcb where the motors are soldered in? I believe to add motors, you need a diode and a some transistor, but I have no idea what kind. thanks

I agree that this is an old post, but I'm also curious of this. Photos of the back of the pcb would be great

it is the Current that blows LEDs, not Voltage. You use a resistor to limit current.

5v minus Vforward for LED (2.2)== 2.8 v supply available.

To drive the LED at 20ma divide 2.8 volts by 0.0020 and you'll get required current limiting resistor's value, in Ohms (140).

That said, the current to Rumble motors will already be limited to an appropriate amount, otherwise you would have blown something up.

I know. I was thinking voltage drop when editing.
