if your not using a wired controller your not a true gamer.
Edit: you forgot M$ Quick Charge.

the wise choice is ... Rechargeable (NiMh) AA's.

because those are much cheaper and work just as good as official battery packs etc.

Official Play and Charge Kit [39.40%]
Regular AAs [16.09%]

Well, this certainly explains all the moronic posts in every news thread.

a battery is a battery, they can't ban those the way they do memory cards or hard drives so they can charge an insane premium for off the shelf parts

I have one ebayed official Play & Charge cable to charge my 2 packs, but one of those packs really heats up like a mofo. 4 hours charging time and a temperature of 80c just doesn't seem right. Thinking of moving to rechargeable AA's and a wall charger.

Eneloops and a good charger. I swap the batteries out in my controller and headset every time I play so they never run out - cheaper than the play and charge kit and doesn't quit working after a year.

I used to use the official battery pack + quick charge kit.
But after the battery packs stopped charging, I cut them open, took out the 2100mah Sanyo batteries & used them in a standard charger biggrin.gif

I also use 4x Sanyo eneloop's - got them for only 6.50 delivered from Amazon =D

rechargeable AA's are the easiest/cheapest...and from what i hear from all of you guys..the play and charge kit dies after 6 months to a year. i have some rechargeables that are over a year old and still last for days.

i paid $10 for my charger and 2 energizer nimh's
