    Nice addition to your 360

    Posted

    Xbox 360 seems to focus on the ease of use and wireless capabilities, which is good, but at times it can be a pain. During these times, I am glad that they have came up with a backup plan! + This little cord and battery makes gaming a dream, when it works that is. I have purchased a few of these already and two of them have been faulty. I don't know if it was just a fluke, or if they are just poorly created, but it has been kind of irritating. The one that I have that works, is awesome though. + I love being able to play without wires in my way, and I love that when you do have to be "wired", you are actively charging your controller back to full life! That is a really nice feature I think. + Not a plethora of things to touch on with this item, but it is very nice to have if you do a large amount of gaming and hate to waste all your video game buying money on batteries! Just be sure that it charges within your first thirty days of buying!

    I bought this for a friend after Best Buy staff told me it would work for what we needed. WRONG, it didn't work. Best Buy staff didn't know what they were talking about, again!! That happens quite a bit. Always take what Best Buy staff tells you with a grain of salt!! My friend ended up using it anyhow, he really didn't need it for what he ended up using it for but I figured by the time we pay for return stock fee: might as well let my friend keep it and get some use of it. It's a good product but it can't be used to control a wireless device on a computer. It only charges, you need a wireless device (hub) to have a xbox360 wireless controller work on a computer, can't buy this device instead, it won't work!! Even if Best Buy says it will: it won't.

    Beats using batteries IMO.

    I prefer this over the packs that you need to put batteries in. I just hate the hassle of needing to have backup batteries and then charging those. In the long run it may be cheaper to have the item to recharge batteries and use that for your controller. I like this because I dont need to worry. I play and when it gets low I just plug in the play and charge kit and dont worry about it. This item usually lasts 2-6 months if you are a hardcore gamer before you need to replace it. The price I think should be cheaper but I still like this item, saves you from any worry untill the item stops holding a charge and needs replaced. And for me so far all have lasted atleast a year, but I go long times without playing.

    Microsoft: Quantity Over Quality

    Don't get me wrong, the product when i first obtained it worked perfectly. i got 30 hours in from a full charge. After a few weeks of owning it my battery lasts for about 10 hours. the cord itself works great. I wish Microsoft had just the battery packs for sale instead of the off brand Rocketfish or NYKO brands. Microsoft seems to be making a lot of poorly made items and selling them for what they aren't really worth. my controller is 2 months old and the joysticks don't work. i have countless friends whose mics don't work.

    bought the rechargeable battery pack so i wouldn't have to buy a bazillion AA's.....good idea. BUT, it lasts around 4-5 hours. so when im in a serious mood for gaming.....im usually in the middle of the firefight of my life when the console tells me that i need to plug my controller in. so i just leave my controller plugged in all the time. the wire doesnt bother me. so its good for not having to pay a fortune in AA batteries, but the charge isnt as long as i thought it would be.

    We have a charging station, but I needed one more charger, so I bought this, not quite realizing how versatile it is. You have the ability to go wired if you burn out the charge in the middle of a long session, or say if the kids haven't been putting the controllers on the chargers and just leaving them strewn about the living room. The cord is nice and long, so you don't have to crowd in to play, and it charges the controller while you are playing and completes the charge even with the xbox off.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Far better than AA's

    Since purchase, I've only had to recharge one controller out of the pair. Use between the two has been somewhere in the 90-100 hour range so far, and when the one needed charged it was as simple as plugging in the charging cable and continue playing. Simplicity works best.

    I am tired of buying batteries for my kids to play xbox or to watch netflix. This battery works great. The only issue is having to plug it in. If It would wirelessly charge I would give it 5 stars however this is what I purchased. would also like to have 2 batteries.

    This is a great product when battery is dying you can just plug in and continue to play while it charges. This however is also bad because this battery does not last that long before you start to see shorter and short life after being charged. Price is worth it though.

    Doesn't make the best contact with the controller. I have to pull up on the socket connection with the controller to make a good connection for it to charge. Otherwise it's great. The cable length is long enough to sit back and play with it plugged in.

    I use these all the time when gmaing with my family. They are great for long gaming sessions and even work on controllers whose battery packs don't hold a charge anymore. You can just plug in the controller to the charging cable and play as long as you want.

    I purchased 2 of these, and aside from having to exchange 1 of them because it would not charge the product has been great. The batteries hold a longer charge then I was expecting, and I like that I can still play while they are charging.

    no issues. I only use it as an extender for my HTPC. Xbox one does not support windows media center so I will never buy one. Also windows 10 does not support media center pc's. Will not upgrade to that either.

    Purchase was for my son. He uses the charger daily and his only complaint is that it should come with 2 charge packs so once its charged and you unplug it another player can charge their pack with your same cord.

    My old controller batteries finally died after years of recharging. This item cost less than replacing what I was using, and now even if my battery is dead I can continue to play, albeit wired to the xbox itself.

    The kit has been a lifesaver. I can game for hours on end and not worry about my stick crashing in the middle of a heated battle. Thanks to best buy for having this item accessible and at an affordable price!
