Requires a seperate charger so that should push up the price somewhat?
#2
Yes but it's still a cheap price for a battery pack.

tip: I thought my batteries had died but - looks like play n charge kits are a bit dodgy as i read on xbox forums.

witht he play n charge kit, it goes green but when you disconnect it says battery is dead. I charged them using a usb wall adapter and they fully charged!!

I think if you dont play for a while (like i did) something goes funny
#6
i'm having problems with charging too, the light always stays red even if i charge it over night, if i re plug the cable the light will turn green so i usually charge it for 4hrs, battery life is good, completed GOW2 in one charge.

That has happened to one of mine!...thought it was dead and was amazed as its less than a year old and hasn't had a massive amount of use, and was considering buying another one, will try plugging it into the USB wall adapter I have got for charging an MP3 and see if it ressurects it.

Hope it works, rep added for the tip, never thought to search to see if others have had the same problem..off to try...:)

Good luck! Thats what I used - a charger for an mp3 player - it took a while to charge up but light went green after a good few hours! :thumbsup:

Just trird didn't work with a mp3 charger, the plug and play kit needsa certain signal somehow to be able to charge, just the voltage doesn't work from the wall charger, not for me, read some more into it, It needs a pc to be on or the 360 to be on or in standby mode....however...this tip has just got it charging!

Reasoning :

To fix this problem plug in your controller (the red light should come on for a few seconds) when the green light comes on unplug the controller and plug it in again, continue this process until the red light stays on. This can take any where from 10-30 times till it works, the reasoning behind this?
Ni-Mh battery's loose 30% charge in this first day with no use, then the charge rate decreases and will completely discharge at room temperature in about 30 days. The problem that you have ran into is that the battery is so slow that it wont except a charge. The capacitance of the battery its self is changing polarity to a near neutral when it reaches such a dead point. By forcing the recharge on the battery over and over again you are giving the battery enough of a charge to allow it to recharge as per normal again.
I hope this helps you and any one else who comes across this problem!


And forcing it like this worked for me!...I just kept plugging it into my laptop usb port and then unplugging when the light went from red to green after a few seconds....then kept retrying, and after about 15 attempts, here I am with the red light still on and its charging ok!!!!

As I have two controllers and two rechargeables, I guess it makes sense that one of them was left out of play for that long its polarity was in a near neutral state and this has forced it out of that.

Interesting! Im not sure why mine worked ok - i might have had my laptop on nearby..... but def not my xbox. Anyway - glad its working!!
#11
Bought one :) had a black one which works fine and a dead white one for ages.
But with the white one not even the red light comes on.
Nothing at all happens when it´s plugged in to charge

Some MP3 player wall chargers work by giving the device the raw 5 volts, and that is enough for some MP3 players, others such as the Zune actually need a certain signal (as does the 360 controller) in order to force it to charge, something to do with grounding certain pins in the USB cable, most likely requires a data post for it to start charging, hence why they work connected to the 360 or a pc or laptop but not a standard USB wall charger.

There are special USB wall chargers out there though that somehow bridge this data signal to charge Zune MP3 players etc, and that probably is the type you must have to be able to have charged your 360 controller battery direct from a wall socket :)

we have 2 black controllers with 2 white batteries and 1 black battery, would get these if I need more. Always got a spare on the ol quick-charge. :thumbsup:

In that case if you are getting no light at all (mine was red for 5 seconds then turned green as if it was fully charged) then the recharge trick definitely won't work, most definitely dead at £4 for these though you can't complain for a replacement :)
#16
Yep that´s why I ordered one :)
Great price!

i'll just stick to normal throw away batteries bought a play and charge kit from gamestation it won;t charge the battery and only works if i leave the wire connected at all times defeating the purpose of a wireless controller
#21
It's worth getting a decent battery charger and rechargable batteries, does the same job as these battery packs and doesn't cost as much, plus you can use them for anything else that requires batteries too. Got myself a pair of battery chargers with 4 batteries for £3.50 each from a deal here recently (now expired).

now only on pre-order, bah

Did you try reading my post about repeated plugins of the USB lead to force the battery out of its "dead" state? Worth a try :)
