    Not bad for price

    Posted

    I like the product, but would like to see some changes made to it so that it might hold up longer. When you detatch from the controller you have to pull the cord, and over a short period of time the charger ends up shorting out. I would like to see them a small handle on them that would let you pull against the plastic instead of the cord. other than that it is a good product for the price.

    Xbox 360 Play & Charge Kit

    It's always handy to have a rechargeable battery, but the main reason I picked this up was, instead of purchasing a PC xbox 360 controller which would run about 3X this price, I plug one end of the supplied cable into my existing 360 controller and the USB cable end into my PC and done. I can now play PC games with a controller vs. mouse/keyboard. My PC found the necessary drives and I'm off to the races for a fraction of the cost of a separate controller.

    You can charge via USB from your computer!

    Battery life is really exceptional if you properly condition the battery during it's first three charges. My one year old battery lasts 36 hours and my new one much longer. The ability to charge your controller via USB is much better then connecting it to your console and turning it off mid-charge. Overall, I own two of these and one for over a year and they are the best accessory Microsoft has ever released for the 360 besides the 120GB hard drive!

    New look

    This is my second 'black' Play and Charge Kit. The first one i bought had a black battery with a gray cable and connector. This new one actually has a black connector so it looks like part of the controller and not some gray hunk of plastic on top. Adding an extra star for the look of this product. In either case the battery worked well for me. I haven't had any problems with them. Holds a charge for an all weekend gaming run, so i'm happy.

    I found that my kids are not gentle on electronic equipment and that some of their previous charging cables are starting to show some wear and tear. I figured if they are going to keep using the game console and a regular basis then they should have a was to charge their controllers while playing. It was on sale around the holidays so it was an easy decision to buy this. Would prefer that the Xbox would not require the proprietary connectors.

    This is a must if you play games a lot. You don't have to stop playing just plug in the cord. You save money from not buying batteries. The only problem is that when you turn off the controller there is a faint light where it lights up green. This uses up the electricity in the battery pack meaning you have to charge it more. This is solved by taking out the battery pack until the next time you play.

    in june, my car was broken into and my rechargable batteries, among other things, were stolen. i saw this on sale and thought i'd give play and charge option a try, and it's convinced me to go the same route for when i upgrade to an xbox one. wish i had gotten this sooner! its great to be able to play wirelessly when charged, then switch to a wired remote to continue playing while the battery is charging.

    a 'must have' item

    With this charging kit, you can play games while charging your battery. It is really simple to use, and it takes about 3 hours for the battery to be fully charged. You have to know that your wireless controller becomes a wired controller while charging and playing at the same time. But you must have this product in order for you to use your controller without continuously buying batteries.

    Great to save money on batteries.

    I got tired of replacing batteries in my old controller, so when I picked up a new console I decided to get one of these charge kits as well. Instead of going through a $20 package of batteries every month, this is a great alternative, and ends up paying for itself very quickly. I highly recommend that any gamer pick up a charge kit like this one instead of wasting money on batteries.

    Best Charger for you controller

    Better than the regular charge case with batteries. you can save your batteries and less money. you can actually charge it with you computer. Good of use. but if you have a rechargable batteris it would be the same but less annoying changing of the batteries. its good.

    Battery will not work past 1 year.

    Bearclawsyoursheep

    I have had experience using these since 2005 when the Xbox 360 debuted. When I upgraded my xbox twice I got brand new chargers and it has been my experience that these will fail everytime after about a year. The batteries will stop holding a charge or simply won't charge. It is a waste of money. Don't buy this product from Microsoft. Nyko has better options or use batteries.

    Item was on clearance, so about 50% off. Just so happened I needed a new battery pack, so I couldn't beat the price. I have had no issues witht he Microsoft products, but I have heard and read horror stories about the third party versions of the battery pack. Look for this on sale if you want to save money, otherwise spend a bit extra for piece of mind.

    It's pretty straightforward: With this you cut out the annoying costs of replacing batteries over and over again with a rechargeable battery. With the cable, which has plenty of length, you can plug in your wireless controller to the Xbox like a normal controller and not lose any charge. Really, I would say it's a must-have for anyone with a wireless controller.

    This play and charge kit has been out for years and the design and function has not changed much at all. It works great for what it does and doesn't give you much of a way to screw it up. My non computer savvy father in law could figure it out. The man cant tell the difference between a phillips and flat head screw driver. So you know its not hard to use.

    Very long cord, and perfect replacement for batteries, the product itself is great. I just wish they were built in like sony and nintendo's wii u controller I shouldn't have to pay extra for something their competitors provide with their controllers. But I have no option if I want to go the no batteries route and stick with xbox branded items.

    The charge lasts for hours and the light on top of the cord conveniently shows red for charging and green for full charge vs the confusing blink stuff for the PS3. Also the cord locks into place so you can use it as a wired controller as well. On top of this you can use it with the PC to play computer games to. Just plug it in and off you go!

    A must have for the 360 Black Wireless controller!

    Terminator1K

    This is a great accessory for your Xbox 360 Elite, Black Wireless controller. It turns your controller into a wired controller while it charges the rechargeable battery that comes with it. If you have the Microsoft Xbox 360 Play & Charge Kit, you never need to find battery's for your wireless controller again; you’re always ready to play!

    We got this to go along with the wireless controller. It's more convenient than trying to round up batteries whenever they go dead. Holds a charge for a good amount of time (I haven't timed it because my kids aren't allowed to play for hours at a time and the controller holds the charge long enough for them to play a few times.)

    Stopped working after a few months

    The concept of play and charge is very convenient and save money on batteries. However, my battery stopped working shortly after purchase and I ended up replacing with a generic (non-microsoft) battery pack which seems to work fine. Will go with the generic the first time around next time. Microsoft customer support was not helpful at all.

    This item is probably my favorite purchase I have ever made when it comes to gaming. The battery lasts well over 20 hours of game play and when the battery starts to die, all you have to do is plug it into the USB controller port and it instantly works like a wired controller while it charges the battery. Great purchase
