    Sure beats AAs.

    The obvious advantage of this type of battery is that it lasts longer than any rechargeable AAs I've tried, and over its lifetime, will save you a ton of money compared to disposables. One thing that has frustrated me is that I've had some difficulty getting them to charge. I use Microsoft's Quick Charge Kit, and I often have to giggle the battery quite a bit before the contacts line up properly. To be fair, this could be a problem with my charger rather than the batteries, as I'm yet to try them with a different charger. I definitely do not have this issue using them in my controllers.

    We have bought all kinds of rechargeable batteries for our Xbox 360 controllers, and the batteries made by Microsoft are clearly the best on the market. They always fit both the controllers and the charge station, and they have a very long life. They are so easy that my young daughter can replace and install. Overall, they are a fantastic battery and save a lot of money when compared to regular batteries. Obviously, they also provide the power to cordless controllers, which is a very nice convenience for modern gamers and TV watchers.

    Money Saver

    I purchased these pair of battery packs for my New Xbox 360 controllers (which I also picked up at Best Buy) to save money on replacement batteries. These are a must if you have kids like I do. You'll save tons of cash with these bad boys. Be advised though you'll need your own charging device to recharge the batteries. I use the USB charger from a Play and Charge kit , which I already owned from a previous pirchase, so it's not prob for me.

    I went in to get a Nyko battery for my controller as my old one burnt out and I have found Nykos to last longer for less money than Microsoft ones. At $15 total, these Microsoft ones were cheaper, so I went with them. The first one I tried didn't charge, but a battery I long thought dead did. So that might be on my end. The other works fine and I'm not going to bother with the iffy one till the one I know works burns out in a year or so.

    The 1st set didn't fit for some reason after popping it into the controller. I would put them in, and for some reason the battery pack would just pop out. I tried it on another controller, and it worked but for some reason it didn't want to stay in the other. I took it back and exchanged it for another set. This time they popped in with no issue and are providing excellent service. I would buy again if I needed another battery.

    I like these batteries. I still use the first couple of these that I bought a few years ago. I use the original dual battery charger from XBOX and have never had a problem with the batteries not charging properly or overheating. These batteries last longer than the NYKO, or so it appears. It all depends on the gameplay and how much vibration feedback you get. Overall, if you have XBOX360 controllers, I recommend these.

    They are your basic Microsoft Xbox 360 battery. My only problem is that they don't hold a charge very long. At least not like the old ones used to. Also when they finally give out you are pretty much stuck buying the batteries with the charge cable that you don't need. That's the other up side to this its just two batteries not goofy stand or cable that I already have just the batteries.

    Best Product for extended game play

    This is my 3rd set of Xbox 360 approved Microsoft rechargeable battery packs. These are without a doubt the best battery pack for hours of non-stop gaming pleasure. I use mine combine wit the Microsoft Quick Charge Kit. This provides a rapid full charge in less than an hour. The battery pack usually last between 30-40 hours before needing a recharge.

    Prefer these to any 3rd party rechargeable battery packs due to them not being bulkier -- some of the 3rd party battery packs may break the "tray" part of the battery slot on the back of the wireless controllers, which may in turn loosen the gap between the connectors (happened to me with some older Nyko batteries in one of the new switchable d-pad controllers).

    Pay the extra money and get the real deal. These hold a charge much longer than the other brands of batteries out there. Yes, every once in a while you will get a lemon but make sure to test these out right away and exchange if you get a bad one.

    For years I bought the cheaper Nyko brand batteries because well they were....cheaper. Those battery packs are actuall slightly larger than the Microsoft ones so over time they actually crack your controller. The constant putting them in and taking them out to recharge them causes this issue so stay away from the Nyko ones !!!!

    My original Xbox 360 controller's battery no longer held a charge so I needed a replacement. Went to Best Buy and saw this 2 pack battery on the shelf. Briefly spoke to the Best Buy associate working there and pucrchased the battery. Works like a charm, just wish they had a battery that matched the color of my controller.

    If you play Xbox and want to go wirelessly then you've got have the power to play and these batteries provide that! I also use the shells and reload with AA rechargeable batteries, having these compact saves the step of unloading charging and reloading. Just charge one while using the other one.

    Ok so first off they don't fit in my old Xbox 360 controllers perfect??? They do however fit in the newer model controllers for the 360. Any big time gamer will know the reasons behind needing these and they do what they were meant to do. Great buy if you have a newer model 360 controller.

    I've used these for many years now, and what more can I say, they work! It's easy to charge them up, and if you have a spare, you can simply swap it out when the first one dies. I don't get to play as much as I used to, but I just bought another set because they were cheap and I love them!

    good quality product especially for the price. I was even a little surprised they were still available. after initial charging they have not needed additional or periodic charging in over 12 hours of use. I recommend this product for dedicated xbox 360 players.

    After many years of use, our old fleet of batteries was dying. It's nice to be able to buy these in a two pack by themselves because we don't want the charge kits, and we don't need new controllers. It's also nice to have batteries that we know will work when we need them to.

    I wish the battery lastest longer, but the baatery fits snug on the controller. I had previously bought a Nyko battery with a longer life, but the contact was loose, so the controller kept disconmecting from the xbox. I threw away the battery and bought this one instead.

    The batteries are what you expect - rechargeable battery packs for your Xbox 360 controllers. They are standard and work well as replacements for old battery packs or instead of using AA batteries. Make sure you have a way to recharge them - with a cord or recharge kit.
