Microsoft offers two options: a plug-n-play wired solution and this Quick Charge Unit. The speed, convenience and ease of this Quick Charge Unit make it the hands-down better way to go.
The Quick Charge Unit will power up a fully-drained battery in about two hours; contrast this to the 10+ that it takes the plug-n-play setup to accomplish the same thing.
Also, the Quick Charge Unit is totally independent from your Xbox 360, as opposed to the plug-n-play which is physically wired to your 360 and requires that the 360 be on during recharging (yes, I know that you don't have to be actually playing to charge via the plug-n-play, but it IS keeping your 360 powered up, and thus wearing your expensive console down - is that really worth it to save some money on batteries?).
The Quick Charge Unit is small - barely taller than the 360 itself, so you could very likely fit it in your entertainment shelves. But you're free to keep it wherever you like - mine happens to sit in a bookshelf in a separate room from my 360. When a battery runs low, I just swap it out for a fresh one. You can leave the batteries on the unit even after they're fully charged; a red/green LED alerts you to the status of each battery in the charger.
This package does come with one rechargeable NiMH battery, although the Quick Charge Unit has space to accommodate two at a time.
This great accessory will immediately save you money on batteries and also preserve the life of your Xbox 360 console by not relegating it to the role of overly-expensive charger. Highly recommended.
The Quick Charge Kit is used in conjunction with the XBox 360 rechargeable battery for the wireless controllers. This kit comes with one rechargeable battery pack included. The packaging on the Quick Charge Kit claims that it can completely charge a depleted battery in about 2 hours, double that to charge 2 battery packs at the same time.
In my experience the charging time estimates are true. Though I usually end up charging my battery packs before they're completely drained. Typically I'd say that a full charge on one battery takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour.
The Quick Charge Kit comes with an AC power cord that's about 1.5m long. The unit also features 2 LED's that indicate the status of the ongoing charge. Orange/Red = charging and Green = charged. Simple and effective.
In the long run the Quick Charge Kit will pay for itself with the savings in not having to purchase regular alkaline batteries. I really think no XBox owner should be without this handy little device.
First one I ordered was defective as the lights would come on randomly when the batteries where inserted. But Amazon as usual is great about these kinds of things and quickly overnight-ed me a new one and provided free shipping of the defective one back to them.
All in all if you own and Xbox and find yourself constantly looking for fresh batteries or a charged battery pack this is a must have accessory.
