Top critical review
So, so, and not much ho-ho.

I thought these were going to solve the anxiety of replacing batteries and keeping track of rechargeable batteries.
They didn't. Out of the package, one battery pack didn't work. I had read from other reviews that this wasn't uncommon. But I felt lucky. . . . . and wasn't.
I was temped to make them replace it but didn't seem worth the effort. They didn't last as long as rechargeable batteries and took four times as long to charge. The cord was too short to work with my console set up, so I put it a little further away. The remotes didn't get put back every time, but that was my issue.
If they died, I had to put in rechargeable batteries which meant these batteries got forgotten as you can't put it on the base without the remotes. They run dead fast, then you l lose a controller, etc.
Anyway, long story short. It was easier to juggle rechargeable batteries in the end. I'm going to put this away and basically recommend not buying it.
Who makes these has a very poor quality control. That so many batteries go out and don't work is unacceptable. If both batteries had worked, I might have used used them, but at this point, it's junk.
