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

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.

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.

Bought my 360 a few months ago as iv always been a playstation guy, but i saw one for a pretty good deal with a few games and though what the hell. Getting used to having to use batteries was a pain in the ass as sonys controllors always have built in rechargeable batteries( dear god microsoft get up to date). Everything else though was fine, decided to get this to save money on the long run, with the way i game batteries were costin me a fortune. What a waste of money. Il charge my controller with it, disconnect it, put it in a drawer nice and safe, take it out when my controllers need charging again, it wont work. Il try it again in a few days, it works. Carries on like this. Only reason its got 3 stats is because when it DOES work, you can get much longer playtime out of your controller than using normal AA batteries. Id say it was just a faulty item if my friends and my brother and his friends didnt all say the same thing, but they do. May work as backup if your totally out of batteries at 3 in the morning but otherwise, dont waste ya money

This is an essential product for anyone playing Xbox, batteries just don't cut it for me.
rotating AA Batteries just to play is awful and if you do run out what then.

With this you get the battery and a wired lead so if your battery isn't charged you can still play.

PROS:
-Great battery full charge lasts me one week (playing most of weekend and partially in the week)
-Warning lights on xbox controller give ample warning for you to charge
-Wired charging wire gives your controller power anytime in case your battery is dead.

CONS:
-Biggest negative is with online games when in chat with other players (Turtle Beach), because when you have the wire plugged in and your charging the battery it will make a BUZZING sound which can't be avoided.
It's a slight irritation but as long as you keep your battery charged your fine.
