Dead Vive controller

Two days ago i Played the game Vtol VR oon steam and one of my controllers lost power. so i set it to charged and wathced a movie. so when i got back i saw the white light as if it was fully charged. but as soon as i unplugged it. the red blinking light started. i can use the controller for 30 ish sec before it looses it's power. is there an easy fix to this or am i doomed to buy a new one of send it to repair?

How old is the controller? You may have a defective controller/battery. Have you charged the controller with adapters/cables other than the ones originally supplied with the Vive?

That does sound like there's something wrong with the controller. Have you contacted our support chat?
