    i read that some third party ps3 controller are made so cheap that it doesn't even have Reverse-Current Circuitry Protection, so won't it run the risk of damaging the PS3 console when said controller is plugged in?

    what i mean is, when the ps3 finishes charging the third party controller, and assuming that the cheap controller doesn't have Reverse-Current Circuitry Protection, won't the over-accumulated electricity in the controller be reversed/shot back into the console's motherboard and thus causing damage to the ps3 console?

    thanks for the help!
