4.0 out of 5 stars Better than batteries! 19 Jun 2011
By MrE TOP 500 REVIEWER
Ok firstly i bought this when i started to run out of AA batteries, for those that don't know the XBox 360 wireless controller EATS AA Batteries for breakfast so i recommend you invest in a recharge kit which also doubles as a plug and play kit. The battery pack fits nicely into the controller and doesn't rattle, the cable is more than long enough and also fits nicely into the controller(the cable plugs into the USB port on your console). NOTE: this black version will work with the white controller.

PROS: no more batteries, recharge and play at the same time, long cable for recharging, fits well into the controller

CONS: Pack does not last as long as batteries but is quickly recharged, XBOX needs to be switched on to recharge the battery, battery can get hot while charging.

VERDICT: despite it not lasting as long as two Duracell batteries on a full charge, its cheaper and you'll save yourself a fortune on batteries in the long run, it's well made and works with all 360 controllers, (one word of advise is to remove the battery from the controller while it's not in use as this does help prolong the charge in the battery!)

RECOMMENDED for those who play 4+ hours a day

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for your xbox 360 elite 4 Nov 2010
By Andy
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This play and charge kit is an absolute essential for your xbox 360 elite ,as this is the official one from microsoft you can rest assure that it is a good quality product and will last a long time ,also with this rechargeable battery pack you will no longer need any standard batteries inside your controller.

All you do is place the black box (rechargable battery pack) into the back of your controller then insert the cable end with the small circle on it into the top of the controller then connect the other end of the cable into the usb port on the xbox 360 elite console (behind the small door on the right hand side of the power button) ,you can also keep the cable in the controller for continuous charge while playing.

If you get a red light on the cable then it's charging and a green light means it's fully charged ,when it's fully charged you can remove the cable from the controller if you want to play a game wirelessly.

Two slight downfalls to this product is the batteries overheating when charging ,i don't know how but for some reason at times (not all the time) the battery pack will start to heat up really badly when it's charging (it doesn't damage the battery pack) and this items packaging is that strong anti-theft packaging that slices your hand if you open it the wrong way.
