I'm not saying that the original PS4 Dualshock controllers are bad in any way. However, one can always improve gaming performance with a controller that allows for more customization and accessibility. This is where the C40 TR controller from Astro comes in. The C40 TR controller gives you extra buttons that can be mapped and the ability to swap thumbsticks. Additionally, the Astro C40 TR also comes with a software program that lets you remap just about every button. The software also allows you to adjust the sensitivity of the triggers and sticks and also adjust the sound output from the included 3.5mm headphone jack.

The only gripe about being a PS4 gamer is the short battery life on the DualShock controllers. Although it is enough to get you hooked into the amazing story of The Last of Us or some intense matches in Apex Legends, it becomes difficult to remember to have your controller charged by using a micro USB cable. This is why it's smart to invest in a sophisticated charging system like the PDP Gaming Ultra Slim Charging System that comes with two charging adapters to slip one of your controllers on the cradle while you game on the other one.
