2.0 out of 5 stars Beware: Some play and charge kits have problems actually charging the batteries, June 27, 2008
By 
This review is from: Xbox 360 Black Play and Charge Kit (Video Game)
I bought my play and charge kit when I first bought the system. It worked wonderfully the first few times. You plug it in when you are playing and it will slowly charge the battery. However, after not playing for awhile, when I went to charge up the battery it wouldn't charge anymore. The controller was definitely connected to the 360 as I could play the games while connected.

However, the battery light indicator on the controller would glow red, to indicate it was charging, for about five minutes. Then it would turn green to signify that it charged the battery completely. I thought that perhaps it was charging, despite the light not being red, but that was not so.

I kept it plugged to the 360 while playing for a couple of hours, and then tried playing wirelessly. 5 minutes later, the controller died.

Ultimately, I think it is more of a problem with the batteries than the cord itself. I bought an extra battery to go with my white controller and it suffered the same problems.

I seem to be one of the few that have had this problem, and they are not too expensive, but be warned that this problem does occur.

This has happened with all my batteries. I have about 8 or 10 floating around here.. some old and some new. None of them will charge. It doesn't matter which controller I use or which cord. It's definitely an issue with the battery packs.

Just so people know, this is not an issue with the batteries, it's an issue with the Xbox. For whatever reason, some xboxes will not charge the battery unless you go through a specific series of steps when connecting the plug and play. Happens every once in a while with mine, but I just reconnect it a few times and it charges with the red light like it's supposed to.

Google for more info. There are also YouTube videos that show the process.

If the battery is bad, the light usually doesn't come on at all, but if it still holds a charge and gives the green light, then it's prolly a firmware glitch.
