do you think that dimming it will save battery life?

The light bar didn't use a lot of battery life to even be a hindrance to the "old" battery life.

 

It'll feel the same.

It's an led bulb. It won't have any effect on battery life.it doesn't even dim all that much so in my opinion nothing was accomplished here.

I never cared about dimming the light to begin with. Plug the controller into anything w/ a USB port to charge it, you dont have to plug it into the system.

if its led I dont think any brightness setting will make a difference, it needs to be completely turned off to make a dent, hopefully in 1.8 Smiley Tongue
