Xbox one controller, play and charge /options

Post by S7 OC on Tue May 13, 2014 11:11 pm

Just curios what you guy are using.  I have just been using regular batteries but am looking into either buying a a play and charge kit or good rechargeable batteries with charger.  I used both options with the 360 and they both ended up crapping out. I used many battery packs and rechargeable batteries before I just decided to go with a wired controller. Any way what are your thoughts on the best option here?

I use the play and charge kit. I think rechargeable batteries are fine.

Rechargeable batteries u can get a charger and 4 battery for like 12 to 14bucks all day and you can buy 4 more battery for like 5to7 bucks. Play and charge only works for your xbox controller. Double aa work on all kinds of sh1t and how often do you go  looking around rhe house for aa batteries

I used the nyko charger for the 360 and like the fact I had a fully charged controller every time I started playing. But with the chat adapter on the xb1 I would have to take the adapter off every time I wanted to charge it and I would prob brake the adpater sometime.  The other charger bases are too unstable for me with the kids messing with them

Lol Klown. I bought a play and charge kit today for $14 dollars. I went on game stop rewards and use my points for a $10 coupon.

Hadn't heard of them. Looked it up, says can be recharged 1500 times.
That's 1500 days for instance (4 years and 40 days) wow...maybe I should get this!

Actually the newer ones (gen 3) can be recharged 1800 times.  These are the ones I use and am very happy with them...with "normal" usage I get about a week at least per charge.  Swap out with the other 2 I have and I'm good for at least another week.
