5.0 out of 5 stars Great unit, Great Price, April 19, 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Xbox 360 Black Play and Charge Kit (Video Game)
This is a must have with your 360 and a controller. And in black to match your Elite controllers.

You can plug it in via USB to your Xbox 360 and charge the included battery pack while you play your game.

You can also remove your battery pack, and plug the cable directly to your 360 for wired gaming (so your controller won't shut off while you are in the middle of that hired driver Forza race.

This charges via any USB port on your 360, your computer, your cable box, or your dog (if he has included USB hub).

I recommend buying one of these, then buying the Quick Charge Kit. Then you'll have 2 battery packs, the quick charge dock, and a USB charge cable.

I tested this last night, and you CAN charge your battery pack via the USB port on your PC.

So, if you have a PC you have the option to buy two play and charge units and keep one plugged into your PC as a backup instead of one play and charge and a quick charge kit. Saves you $10 if you want to go that route.

assuming you have 2 controllers. otherwise, you can't charge the battery without one.

I would like to use a USB hub plugged into my Xbox 360's rear USB port to: A) charge/use a wireless controller with Microsoft's "Play & Charge" kit, and; B) charge my Microsoft Wireless Headset.

Does anyone know if I will need a powered USB hub or if a simple passive/pass-through USB hub will be sufficient to meet my requirements???

Since you mentioned this kit would let you play wired while the battery its out of juice, do you know if this will work with a pc ? I mean to use it as a wired controller on the pc. Thank you

The instructions specifically tell you NOT to use the the charging cable without a battery pack.

@ James. No, it will not. The cable is just for power, the controller still connects over wireless while plugged it. You need to get the wireless adapter to use a wireless controller with a PC: Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver Black
