However, I ordered this in the first week of January, and by the first week of April, the battery was no longer holding a charge. I would plug in the USB, the batteries would charge up to 100%, and in less than 5 minutes, my Xbox would notify me that my controller's batteries are low. Not OK. Had it been 2 or 3 years, I would expect this to happen. But it hasn't even been 6 months - actually it's been 4. I'm out of the return window, which sucks - so there doesn't seem to be much I can do. Should the seller choose to remedy the issue, I'll update my review. But as it is, by my personal experience, this product hasn't lasted a sufficient period of time. I imagine I just have a bad unit, but there's really no telling.
My complaint: the cord is TOO SHORT. I live in a 900 sq ft apartment. My living room isn't huge. The 360 play and charge cord had tons of slack, but I have to sit forward on the edge of my couch, or go out and buy a usb extension cord, and since I shelled out the money to buy the certified Xbox brand play and charge, I feel somewhat cheated. I have included a picture so you can see the difference between the charge cord of the 360 (laying on the floor, tons of slack) and the Xbox one, not even reaching my couch
It's still worth buying over batteries, but beware the length of the cord
I have now drained the pack enough to recharge the controller and it has been used close to 20 hours.
Another plus for the rechargeable battery pack is that it stiffens the controller wonderfully to prevent any sort of flexing.
One star off for not having a charge station (yet) where you could plug in and charge the controllers by using the charging station rather than having to plug in each controller individually to a tiny, keyed micro USB cable (not exactly kid friendly). The 360 controller battery pack charging station is a terrific idea and I would like to see one for the One also.
Note: This is a lithium ion battery. Therefore, it needs to be taken care of differently than your standard NiCd AA batteries. I've read about people's batteries going bad pretty quickly (cell phone, play and charge pack, etc) and they think it's the battery itself. It's likely not the battery, but the user. Lithium ion batteries need to be charged fully before they get unplugged. If not, the battery can "forget" where it's at in it's recharge cycle. So, rules of thumb:
1. Always, always recharge the battery to full during every charge session. Skipping here and there isn't usually an issue, but making it a regular practice to only partially charge the battery will inevitably cause battery to behave like it's no good.
2. You don't have to wait until it dies to charge it. Charge it everyday if you want, just charge it to full each time.
3. You can't overcharge the battery because the electronics won't allow it, so you can keep the battery plugged in all night if you want. Once more, just make sure you charge it to full!
4. Keep away from heat, especially for long periods of time! Heat is bad for any battery and decreases lifespan. If your battery gets significantly warm every time you charge, you might have an issue.
If you follow these rules, your battery should last years, depending on how much you actually use it. If you do find your battery dying before it should, you may have to spend a few days getting it back to normal by using it until it dies as much as possible before charging it. So, use it until it dies, try turning it back on and use it until it dies again, and keep doing this until the thing just won't turn on anymore. Then, charge it back to full and repeat the exercise all over again. After a few days of this, you should see a marked improvement in the battery life, unless the battery is just old. If it's old, it's old.
And, again, all this goes for any lithium ion batteries you might use.
