4.0 out of 5 stars Better than batteries! 19 Jun. 2011
By MrE TOP 50 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 Excellent Quality Official Xbox Product 10 Mar. 2015
By Timelord-007 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Official Xbox 360 Play and Charge Kit - Black.

Product Contains.
1 x Battery Pack
1 x Charging Cable

Timelord Review.
This official Xbox 360 from Microsoft is a excellent quality product that gives wireless play for around 30 hours & is a far better alternative to the standard batteries that use up very quickly in your controller.

The cable is sturdy & well made & is around about 9ft in length which allows gamers enough distance away from the Tv as to not hurt your eye's.

Simply place the rechargable battery pack into the back of your Xbox controller & attach the cable with the small circle to the slot on the top of the controller & then connect the other end of the cable into the USB port on the Xbox 360 console the red light indicates the controller is charging which can take up to a hour or so & when it flashes green the controller is then fully charged to use wirelessly & you can use the controller while charging to play your games.

My only criticism is It would've been nice if an additional battery pack had been included as dual player games with friends will require an additional product purchase which is unfair when Microsoft could have simply added another battery pack.

Overall, the Official Xbox 360 Play & Charge Kit has to date been a very good quality product & one that I would easily recommend to other Xbox users.

Timelord Rating.
9/10

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.

For an official Xbox item I would have expected it to last more than a month of use . Battery pack won't hold charge or even with lead in allow play .

5.0 out of 5 stars great bit of kit 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase
It gives you best of both worlds, and can use the device to charge up your rechargeable AA batteries, as well.
although the solid battery does not last as long as two AA's, it is still long enough for what I need, Plus you can have the game pad working from the lead, as the game pad tends to time out on you, when you go out of the room for whatever reason, and then you have to reload the game for the game pad to work. but if you are connected by the lead, then it will not time out on you.
There is nothing to stop you from connecting the lead when you leave the room then disconnect the lead when you return.
