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.
My real issue is that the Xbox One controller should have included a rechargeable battery out of the box. A rechargeable battery and USB cable should not cost $25, even if they have the official Xbox branding on them. A Dualshock 4 for the PS4 only costs $50 and has a rechargeable battery built right in, whereas if you buy an Xbox One controller and a play & charge kit you will be spending about $85 since the base controller itself is $10 more, even without a battery.
I bought this because I got a good deal on my Xbone controller and decided to go hog wild, but I can't help but feel a little dirty for enabling Microsoft to continue nickle-and-diming their customers for such a basic feature that should be included with a controller that costs $50-60. If you want the official Xbox quality and are willing to pay for it then by all means, get this kit. I am simply writing this review to voice my dissatisfaction with Microsoft's prices for something that the controller should have included without an additional cost attached. Whether or not a battery is worth $25 is up for you to decide, but I think Microsoft should have given their customers a better deal.
It works pretty good, I wasn't able to measure the exact time used but it's right in the 20-30 hour range as stated in the specs. The charging time is also just about 4 hours.
