I will keep this review short and to the point with everything you need to know to base your decision on.

Firstly this is the Official Battery Pack and cable for the Xbox One Wireless Controller. On the back of the controller is the plastic door, which when you slide it off you will find the battery compartment. You can either use 2x AA Batteries or you can place this battery pack into the compartment (the pack neatly fits into the battery compartment and doesn't rattle).

Essentially, when you've installed the battery pack you have a built in battery (with the advantage that it can be replaced later down the road as lets be honest, batteries don't last forever). The micro USB cable that comes with the battery pack is a decent length at 2.8m and feels sturdy, both end connectors are of a high quality and fit into the controller and console well. There is an LED charging light which is yellow while charging and then turns white when fully charged, sadly as of yet you can't check the battery charge level through the dashboard as you use to be able to do on the 360.

Now onto some great news, when the controller is plugged into the console using the charging cable it disables the wireless functionality of the controller and it instantly becomes a fully wired controller, sending both data and taking power from the cable, while at the same time disabling the battery while it charges which takes a total of 4 hours. Even better news is when the console is in standby mode the battery pack can still be charged meaning you don't need to leave the console switched on.

This box contains the play and charge wire at 2.8m long, and the play and charge battery pack.
To use the battery pack, slide the plastic door off the rear of the controller and insert, much like you would with 2x AA batteries. Close the door, and you're done.
When the battery is getting low, the Xbox One will inform you. Just plug in the play and charge wire into the mini-USB port on the controller, and the light on the wire will show orange/yellow. When the battery is fully charged, this light will show white.
On the home screen of the Xbox One, you can now see how much battery is remaining in your controller.

This bit of kit will enable you to play non-stop; who wouldn't love that!

Works perfectly and wire is very long and is very useful especially with a led light to show when the controller is charged

Saves on batteries the micro usb like connector is a pain to get in at times but otherwise does what it is meant to - with this cable it also means that you can update the firmware on your controller.

You play! It charges! That's it!

Xbox controllers devour AA batteries at a slightly annoying rate, so you will want to get a Play & Charge Kit to avoid keeping having to buy batteries, particularly if they run out and you have no new batteries left in the house. This is a one-piece rechargeable battery and a standardish USB cable. I say "ish" because it's got a little light on it, presumably to indicate when it's charging. You can of course use the controller while it's plugged in - that's where the "play" of "play and charge" comes from - but you might also just leave a second controller charging while you play with another, depending how far away your TV is. The cable length is reasonable.

My son recently decided he had to switch from being a PS4 user to an Xbox one user. Long story but his friends were all on Xbox One and not PS4. Shame he hadn't realised this before the elves got busy last December but there you go.

Obviously as a PS4 user, he had the luxury of wireless controllers with rechargeable batteries that you simply plugged in to the front of the PS4 to top up every now and then. It was therefore a bit of a shock when we got the Xbox One and this was no longer the case and battery eating became a household pastime.

It may seem like a fairly trivial thing but constantly having to replace (and make sure you have in the house) batteries is a bit of a pain in the backside and after one sulky Sunday afternoon, I thought I'd look to see if there was a better way. There is, and this is it.

OK this isn't dirt cheap, but it's well worth it in my opinion for the convenience and useability. I dare say that over the next year or two, the cost of the unit will also be covered by the savings on batteries. Even buying batteries cheaply at Aldi meant that we were burning through at least £2 worth a week - so £100 over a year. It adds up quite quickly!

This gives you exactly the same functionality as we had with the PS4 controller. You get a rechargable battery module which fits snugly into your Xbox one controller, and then you connect this to the Xbox via a cable. You can play as it charges and when it's full you can simply disconnect.

Why didn't Microsoft include this as standard? No idea. I think they must have worked out that they'd get away with it.

I looked at a variety of non branded alternatives, and settled on this official Microsoft unit.
