Not What I expected...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nyko Power Kit Plus - Xbox One (Video Game)
For about the last 4 years I've been using the Nyko play and charge kit with my 360 and I've been very happy with the battery life. My 360 controllers go for weeks on a single charge and I probably average about 20-25 hours a week on the 360. That said, I had high expectations for this kit for the Xbox One and these batteries fell very short. The nicest thing about this kit is the charge indicator on the USB cable. When I got the kit I plugged in battery 1 until it indicated a full charge then I swapped them out and started charging battery 2. I put battery 1 in my controller and it lasted all of about 5 hours. The only reason I gave a 3 star rating is because battery 2 is performing much better and so far has lasted about 20 hours. Other than that, the batteries fit well and the special battery cover required fits as expected. It is a little disappointing that the native USB port on the controller can't be used for charging, you have to plug directly into the battery if you want to play while charging, hence the special battery cover...
Update: I don't know if I just got a bad batch or what but these batteries are horrible. If I'm lucky I might get 10 hours out of them. I'm going back to AA batteries until I find something better. These are garbage, revised my review to 2 stars.

I'm having the same amount of time on my batteries as well. I'm not so happy with them either

Have either of you contacted the manufacturer? If so, what did they say?

I know this reply is close to a year later, but try turning off the controller vibration. I was getting short battery life as well until I turned this off. Seems to add 10-15 hours to the battery life.
