I usually keep my PS4 controller plugged in to the console via a 6-8ft Monoprice USB cord.
I do this to remove any wire control latency and not have to worry about my controller dying mid game.
However, after months of doing this.. usually the cable will no longer change the controller. It will keep the controller charged, but if I unhook and plug it back in, to either charge it or sync it.. it won't do either... but it will keep the controller charged only enough.
I've heard from multiple people this is a common issue.. but what does it happen?
What causes the cord to randomly stop charging and syncing the controller.. and why when it is plugged in does it stay charged, but doesn't recharge?
So when I need to recharge or re-sync I use a 3-4 ft cord I got years ago and for some reason it never stopped working, but I don't play with that cord connected.
I usually go with Monoprice

Weird thing is, the cords still work fine to charge everything else.
