After owning my xbox 360 for a while and playing quite a lot (probably too long) I was getting rather fed up with having to constantly change batteries in my controller as it kept running out of battery. This not only meant I had to go and find some new batteries - and in some instances even...

This is something I purchased only a week or two after buying my 360, and I would consider it essential for anyone who uses the 360 wireless controller. It might cost significantly more than a pack of batteries, but it will not be long before you are saving money, especially if you are a heavy...

ProBrilliant easy to use

Consunreliable

I have now bought two of these one of the Xbox versions and a cheaper version. The idea behind this is that the Xbox controller comes with a pack that fits two double A batteries but these are a bit of a waste of time because they run out of power so quickly. When you buy this play and charge kit...

ProQuickly charges controller, saves you money

ConsCan't think of any!

The XBOX 360 wireless controller is excellent and very responsive throughout it's life using the battery pack, that life, however, can cost a lot of money to keep going. For the average gamer, the XBOX 360 wireless controller will last for a good 30+ hours of use before it will start to...

It was only recently after I purchased by Xbox 360 system that I realised how much of a nuisance it was to have to switch the batteries in my wireless controller during the middle of a game, especially during multiplayer games. At first I considered buying a wired controller to use instead of my...

ProVery Useful, Does what it says, Decent Value

ConsMaybe should be standard with the console

The great thing about the play and charge kit is, its a product that does exactly what it says on the tin, it charges while you play. You plug one end into the 360, the other into the controller and play as normal, and the cable will fill up your controller again. Its such a useful piece of kit...
