RetroPi Xbox Controller
Thanks. I had not heard of this.
I have not actually taken my IR thermometer to it, but after about an hour of playing two player Dr. Mario, the bottom middle of the controller is slightly warm.The hottest part is actually the charging circuit, if you are charging a low battery and playing at the same time, the jewel gets hot. Not melt/burn you hot, but certainly noticeably hot.I'll try to remember to have my thermometer next to me next time I play with the controller. Unfortunately my hair dryer damage to the top part has worsened with use and has made the Dpad unreliable, so I'll probably have to tear down and rebuild that portion of it at some point.
Question: How hot is the device when using it for, let's say, one hour? Any experience info on that?
For a build up method that is fairly strong, very cheap and will not hinder future tear downs I suggest the old model makers trick of super glue and baking soda. You can google instrutions so I won't type it all out but the result is light, rigid can be cut, sanded, dremeled and painted. Cheers and nice write up.
