    A must for wireless controller gaming

    Posted
    Tephlon

    I've owned the quick charge kit for nearly 4 years, and I've never had a single problem with it. I've had bought a few new batteries, as a few that I bought back in 05 died on me (which is to be expected), but the charger itself has always been rock solid. Anyone having this product 'die' on them either got a lemon or abused it somehow. I can say nothing but good things about this kit. It sits on my end table by the couch, and it takes a mere few seconds to swap out batteries if my controller dies. I bought a play and charge kit when it first released, but my living rooms have always been to big to make it feasible to use. I love having the batteries back at the couch with me as apposed to being tied by a cord to the console, and have to sit 10 ft or closer to make cables reach. I can't imagine playing my 360 without the quick charge kit. Definitely recommended. (note: I have some friends who have owned 3rd party rechargeable batteries and chargers, but they didn't "click" into the controller as smoothly or satisfyingly as the official MS products do IMO. For me, I would only use official accessories when it comes to batteries and chargers.)

    One of the best 360 battery chargers

    Posted
    bmichael71105

    I've tried a few different battery chargers, be them my own or friends', but this has been the best thus far. Its very compact and fits nicely wherever you have space. The recharge time is quite short and the charged battery lasts longer than expected and easily surpasses the 25 hour mark. The fact that it shuts itself off automatically after batteries are charged is a nice feature because you dont have to worry about taking the battery off, and there are a surprising number of battery charging devices that wont do this.

    Works well, but annoying whine

    Posted
    TimmyK

    This is by far the best choice for charging 360 wireless controller rechargeable batteries. It does a good job of recharging two batteries fairly quickly. It's a handsome looking device and the LED indicators are bright and easy to see. HOWEVER, unfortunately this unit emits a really annoying high-pitched whine. The whine does diminish some when it is not charging, but never entirely goes away unless you unplug the unit. Now, I do have hyper-sensitive ears, but even my wife (who doesn't hear nearly as well) can hear it as well. I would have given it 5 stars if not for this fact, and if it weren't such a good charger probably only 3 -- yeah it's that annoying.

    Very Useful Product

    This is a great product for charging the rechargeable batteries for the Xbox 360. The product itself comes with a battery, and I would recommend buying extras so that you can always have one fully charged. The only warning I offer about this product is that you can overcharge your batteries and kill them, if you just constantly leave them on the charger for to long. When the light turns green you should take the batteries off. If you are looking for a way to recharge your controllers without having to have something plugged into the Xbox 360 this is the best choice you can make.

    Perfect charger

    When I got my Xbox 360, my controller would always disconnect. Even with good batteries, for some reason it would disconnect. So I bought this with a couple extra batter packs and it solved the disconnecting issue. The battery packs will last for days. When it gets down to one bar of battery life it may disconnect, but with the charger I always have a good battery ready to go. It's got idiot proof lights, red meens charging and green charged. Sometimes the simplest products are the greatest. I just wish they had it in black to match the elite.

    Read The Small Print

    Caveat emptor: After my initial amazement that 1) this recharger comes with only ONE (gootta read the fine print0, and 2) it WILL NOT ACCEPT THE BATTERY HOLDER THAT CAME WITH YOUR xBox 360 Wireless Controller, I'm enjoying the product and look forward to buying another rechargeable battery that fits. My controller is black, the recharger is putty. Should I go with a brown battery? Microsoft is not our friend and they do not play fairly.

    Works Good, but you Need Rechargable Battery Packs

    Posted
    Nubsicle

    When i bought this item i thought it work really well when i had my friends over and we played halo all day, but i dint know you needed the rechargeable battery packs and that you cant use the ones that come with the controller. Its no big deal cause i cn get them for like 10 buckaroos but you still have to buy extra stuff to make it work. So unless you already have wireless battery packs, its still a good item, not great though.

    Great Accessory

    If you only have one person that primarily plays the xbox 360 and you don't mind a cord from time to time then you may not want to spend the extra money on this item. If you have two or more people playing some of the time this is a great buy. It really cuts down on the annoying cords going to the xbox, and also charges the batteries faster than the cord. I wouldn't say that it's a must have, but I am happy with the investment.

    I've had this since January or so, and it has done me great! This allows you to charge your batteries, so you can stop wasting money on AA batteries. My only dissapointment was how it only comes with one rechargleable battery pack, but not two. I love it either way! I always hit 25 hours of battery life or more! This is a must have for any type of gamer.

    Battery issues solved

    Possibly the best way to recharge the batteries yet. While the play and charge kit is good if you need power now, the quick charge kit is great for recharging batteries after a LAN party. Two hours for each battery pack in the tower. I use it after my gears parties then i'm ready for some more xbox live the following day

    Worth the extra cash

    Posted
    Schastain

    We just bought this charge kit last weekend and we should have bought it along time ago! This kit keeps your batteries charged for a long time and as soon as the charge runs low you just plug it in. It is worth it to spend a few extra bucks to purchase this kit verses the plug in charge kit, the charge last so much longer and you can finnaly say good bye to batteries!

    Freedom from buying more batteries

    Posted
    Leeway5

    Anyone who uses the Xbox much knows that replacing batteries gets old and costly. With these rechargable units you simply swap the dying one out with a fresh one and you're back in the action. Delta between buying new AA batts every few weeks (Depending on usage of course) and buying these units merges in about 4 months depending on use...

    best thing ever

    minkis

    if you're using a wireless controller this is a must! there is also a new charger kit that charges as you play and I reccomend you look into that. can charge your controller when its low and then unplug it whenever you want. never have to stop to change batteries oh, and screw wired controllers, they are only good for tripping your friend.

    Microsoft Quick Charge Kit for Xbox 360

    Posted
    Asian

    This is a great product. You don't neccessarily have to have something hooked up to the XBox 360 itself. The only thing I would recommend would be buying extra rechargeable batteries to have for an emergency if you run out of juice in the middle of a game. I would definitely recommend this product.

    Better than other battery pack and chargers

    b16si

    I bought this after returning the cheap nyko one. This is way better the batteries actually fit the controllers well. It works with the newer controllers like the halo 3 edition. The nyko ones don't and they take forever to charge. Thies item has way better quality for the same ammount of money.

    Very Good Product

    Very very quick charge and no wires have to be plugged into the 360 to charge the battery. Only bad thing is that it only comes with one rechargeable battery so you have to buy another one for it to charge two batteries. Does charge only one battery though if you only have one battery.

    Really good charger

    Posted
    swatdude22

    I have had this charger since it came out and I love using it. It charges my battery packs fast and gives them a long charge. Also its nice and small so it does not look odd or take up tons of space. The price on it is not bad and its worth every penny.

    This recharger is great. I play few a couple of hours, then click it in the charger. Go watch some t.v. or a movie, then a friend comes over and wants to play, look down at the charger and it's fully charged!!! Completely Awesome, I don't know what I would do without it!

    the quick charge kit is one of the best things you can have if you are a serious gamer. it lets you have all the conveniences of a plug in controller, without eh plug. its a great investment and should be a great gift for anyone that is a serious gamer or a casual one.

    A must have for the wireless controllers. Saves money that would have been spent on batteries and is very easy to use. The batteries get about the amount of life as the instructions say and when they die all there is to do is just snap the battery into the charge dock!
