Xbox One® Play & Charge Kit
So you bought the new Xbox One® and were dismayed to find a pack of AA batteries for your controller. Then when you saw that the price tag for a single rechargeable battery pack was about half the cost of a new game, the AAs started to look like the better choice, right? Well, the rechargeable battery is still the better choice and getting this Xbox One Play & Charge Kit from Monoprice is the best choice yet!
This battery pack is designed specifically to fit the Xbox One controller. It features a capacity of 650mAh. which is enough for up to 6 hours of continuous gaming. Additionally, it can be used while charging, so when it gets low, just plug it in and play on!
Unlike the Playstation® 3 controllers, which can only be charged when plugged into the Playstation system, this battery pack can be charged from any USB power source that is capable of putting out at least 200mA of power, which includes almost every USB port, charger, and external battery charger ever made.
The battery pack uses a USB micro-B connector for power and comes with a 19" USB A male to USB micro-B male cable.
Note: For best results and the longest battery life, this battery should be fully charged and discharged about 3-6 times before doing a partial charge or simultaneous play/charge.

PROS: Great Price
Works as advertised
CONS: Cable could be a bit longer
PROS: Works as expected. Battery pack fits perfectly. Charge lasts as stated.
Amazing price for the quality.
CONS: The supposed "charge and play" cord is way too short.
Doesn't really matter to me though.
PROS: Great price and you can charge the battery without a controller
CONS: cord is a bit short for plugin play option
PROS: Works just great for me! No issues so far and had it for about a few weeks now.
PROS: just put it on the controller and start using it. Works great with no issue.
CONS: No issues with it at all works great.
Another issue I have been having, is that the charging cable doesn't stay connected. The female end of the micro usb port just allows the cord to fall right out if you dont either 1. hold it in with your hand or 2. charge the pack by itself out of the controller, making the "charge and play" moniker tough to justify.
Also, the charge is never showing up correctly on my Xbone, This may be because of the new firmware and the fact that the charger is aftermarket, so it isn't that big of a deal, just a quirk.
Overall, yes, I suppose I can take this thing out of my controller, charge it while I sleep or something, then haphazardly jam it as far into place as possible and try not to move my hands while I play. Therefore I cannot say that it doesn't complete its intended purpose, but from a company with such a high standard of affordable quality (IMHO), this thing does not live up to my expectations.
PROS: Re-chargeable battery?
PROS: Cheap, doing the job
CONS: Only cons, usb cable is too small, I have ordered a longer one 10 feet will be lont enough!
PROS: They are cheap and they work well.
CONS: None that I can think of.
