      Good While It Lasted

      I bought this kit in a pinch a while ago at Best Buy and had to use a coupon before it expired. I knew I was taking a gamble on quality with a first-run accessory that came out so soon after the system itself did. The battery is nothing to rave about, it's a battery, it has fashionable zig-zag lines to tell it apart from other batteries, I guess--and it didn't start losing full capacity for the first few months. By month 5 or 6 of moderate-to-heavy use (5-10 hours a day, at least 4 days a week), it seemed to go from needing to be charged every two weeks, to every 7-9 days or so. Not a deal breaker, the 360's battery paks saw a degradation in their charge in less time. I loved the cord, however. Extremely generous length, snazzy bright green ends, and an ingenious light that went from orange to white when fully charged. Unfortunately, the cable started failing me after about three months in. I started noticing something wasn't right when I'd leave the controller plugged in (with a USB wall-plug converter, sold separately) for an hour or so, come back and turn it back on to play and I'd get the familiar pop-up telling me my controller was dead, still. Sure enough, something must've came loose on the inside of the cable, if I wiggled the end while it was plugged into the controller, the light would go from white (fully charged) to orange (charging) to non-existent. And the longer I tried using the cable, the looser that range became. I'm not rough on my cables, not like some people; I don't smoke, I don't kink them, I don't have a dog or a toddler chewing and trampling my cables. I feared that I bent the port on the controller itself, but nope, that still works fine with any other cable. So here I am, about a year later, and all I have to show for my purchase is a half-chargeable battery pak that I plug in with any ol' micro-USB cable that's floating around, and the memories of what was.

      This is actually the 2nd one I bought, so I guess I should have known better. I had hoped that it might have been my error that caused this thing to stop working, but it's really the construction of the controller. A wire is a wire. The connection WAS tight when I first bought it, but after removing the cord several times, it started to need "some touch" to get it to stay charging. If I was using the cord while playing, it would lose connection. The problem is, the cord has a counterweight (that little black barrel) but all it does is put stress on the connection. Also, the controller as designed, if you rest it flat, will "lean" on the connection, putting stress on it and possibly bending it. So, to leave it charging, or if you have to walk away for a moment, you would have to leave the controller upside down. I have no idea what Microsoft was thinking with this design, but because of the position of the counterweight, I have to put partial blame on the cord design as well. Another controller company figured a way around this by encasing where the connection is made, and having cords plug in upside-down (wide on top) which seems to have solved this issue, but you cannot achieve that with a regular Microsoft controller. So, take this review with a grain of salt in regards to the cord itself. If you used this cord with a different device, it would be fine. But if you plan on using it as intended, it's garbage.

      Well, most people have great reviews of this charger, but I have had a different experience. First, the good. I do like that the charger cord is 10' long as this means I can play from my couch instead of bringing a chair up closer to the TV. Second, the bad. Within two weeks of purchasing the charger I started having problems. I would get in a couple hours of game play before I would get the pop up message saying I needed to plug the charger in. So I would plug it in, but it would still give me the same message. I would then switch over to my other regular battery operated controller for awhile, thinking that would allow time for the rechargeable controller to recover from my apparently over the top playing. Then I would grab the controller, STILL plugged in to the charger, and begin to play. Guess what? Yes, it would give me the pop up message again saying I need to plug it in. What? It WAS plugged in! I soon figured out that there must be a wire loose in the connector to the controller, because if I wiggled it just so it would be fine. That doesn't work well if you are trying to battle monsters when the controller can't figure out that it is connected. It also doesn't charge the controller up at all sometimes because of that bad connection. Unfortunately, I waited too long to get a replacement. My bad. So lesson learned...if you have ANY problems with charging, be sure to take it back for a replacement immediately!

      Great for now, but not perfect.

      This works and I don't have to worry about batteries for the moment. My only gripe is that my battery does not sit flush in the controller. I am not sure about other copies. When looking down at the controller the top left of the battery cover does not snap into place 100%; it pretrudes about half a millimeter and using normal batteries does not show this imperfection. This is why I have to minus one star. Other than that, product works as described. Price is decent. Another battery without cable was available for cheaper and was only designated for use with Xbox One. This one was designated for use with Xbox One S. When I asked an employee in store if the cheaper product would work with the 'S' console, he was not sure. So I didn't want to take that risk.

      A Great Improvement Over x360 Rechargeable Kits

      I bought the Insignia brand Charge & Play kit right around the time it first came out and, several years later to my surprise, the battery pak is STILL working! That alone speaks volumes compared to the Xbox 360 rechargeable packs--which would fizzle-out within a few months of heavy wear and wouldn't hold much of a charge--this applied to both the official MS branded batteries as well as third-party, none of them would last very long. I must admit that I'm deducting a point because the green usb charging cable, with its copycat charged/not-charged color-changing light DID eventually die, but since the X1 controllers can be charged using any micro-usb cable you have lying around, I believe these are still WELL worth the money you'll save in batteries (or the time you'd spend charging rechargeable AAs). As a bonus, I notice little to no difference between these and the official MS branded Play & Charge kits--besides a slightly nicer cable included with the latter.

      Better than the Microsoft Brand Play & Charge kit.

      You only need to purchase this kit if you need both the battery AND the charging cable. The battery works great, & the cable is nice & long. The Insignia brand cable even has a nice bright little light on the end of the Micro USB port that plugs into the controller that's orange while charging & turns bright white when the controller is fully charged. I bought mine on Black Friday when all of the games were 50 - 75% off. It works great, & seems to have no depreciation of it's battery life whatsoever after 16+ hours of daily use for the last two months. (Fallout 4 will do that, lol) With all current gen controllers you can also just plug any Micro USB phone charger into a wall jack & charge your controllers with just the battery version of this. I actually wanted the cable though so I had a wired option for playing & this cable is MUCH longer (like 10ft?) than the one that comes with a Microsoft brand Play & Charge kit. If you're just looking for the battery only, you can get it here instead. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/insignia-rechargeable-battery-pack-for-xbox-one-black/3511386.p?id=1219589968945&skuId=3511386

      I bought this item because I was tired of buying batteries for the controller. I was going to purchase the official x-box brand, however, I took a chance and I am glad I did. I have only used this charger a few times, so I cannot attest to its longevity, however, the device works exactly like my x-box charge kit did. The battery has better than expected life after a charge. I think I went for over 7 hours of play time before I had to recharge it the first time. I was very close to the console so I wasn't pushing the limits of the distance this thing can receive a signal. I must also confess, I don't play games as often as I use to. I will be following up my review after I have a few months with the device and have recharged it numerous times. I am curious to see if the longevity stays. If I had a criticism about this device it would have to be the color. I am not a fan of the green. That's a personal preference though. I would have given it 5 stars otherwise, but I am nitpicking.

      I was looking for a rechargeable battery for my Xbox One controller because it gets expensive replacing batteries. This would also allow me to connect and play wired if needed while the battery charged. I usually like to stick with Microsoft-branded products as I expect them to be high quality. However, you pay a price just for having their name on a product. So I began researching other brands that would work with my Xbox One, yet seemed to be good quality. After seeing several good reviews for this product (and the fact it was about $10 cheaper than Microsoft), I decided to try it out. So far I have not been disappointed. It holds a charge for a long time and is easy to use. I've had it now for a couple of months and have yet to have issue.
