What Do You Use To Power Your Wireless Controller?
Posted 13 July 2010 - 10:24 PM
I voted for rechargeable AAs
Microsoft Play and charge kits use cheep brand batteries. Took two apart because they stopped charging. They suck. High-end rechargeable AAs can be used in other devices as well + last longer!

lesson learned, stop being so cheap.
i never used my wireless controller though cause i hate changing batteries mostly
but something about using a wired controller feels right. i bet its kinda like how some animals would be unbalanced without their tails

I've used brand new Eneloops and Energizer rechargeables, right out of the charger and the controller powers off after a few seconds. How is it that 30% of the people on this poll use them on a regular basis? Am I missing something?

You can drop 2 controllers in (the charging contacts are on the back of the battery packs) and it acts as a stand for the controllers. Comes with 2 proprietary rechargable NiMH battery packs.
I got mine back in October 2006 and it still works fine with the battery packs that came with it. Charge time is pretty quick, but not as good as the very best rechargeable batteries. It's WAY more convenient though, you never have to open the battery packs or unplug/plug any cables. This is important for me as my Xbox 360 is in a closet in a separate room from my TV.

I have a white one and a black one, but two black controllers! The white one was from my original 360, and is still going strong!
