So, I have a few of the 360 play n charge kits, but there is something I just dont understand.
Yes the red charging light comes on when i plug them in the 360, if i turn the 360 off they stay charging but though the 360 is off the fans are still going at the back - weird!. this seemed to shut down when the batteries were charged then the lights went off. (hope it was that and not just the 360 shutting off for any other reason..
plugging them into the 360 when it is off off, they dont charge,
Plugging them into an ipod or wall charger which has a usb connection then dont charge.
Plugging them into a pc / laptop the dont charge unless the pc or laptop is on and detects that they are there.
So why do they need to be detected in order to charge?
Using a USB wall charger (of which i have many, including ipod/iphone ones.) should work, but it seems without a pc actually detecting them, they dont charge.
WTF is that all about>?
