I was just about to purchase one of student computers for the same price but refurbished. Instead I've bagged one which is brand new and the stores only round the corner from myself.

Have some fecking heat!!

CEX also buy them for £12 voucher.

If you don’t have one of these, they are well worth it. Last much longer than standard AA batteries.

If you do already have one... why not have two?

You can never have too many heat from me xxx

CHeers OP ordered 2!

Does it only come in black?

I have white controllers, so does this just sit inside the case I already have, rather not have black back covers lol

It's just a battery that goes inside the battery compartment so, yes, your existing white cover will just go back on over the top as if you were using AAs (not like the 360 play and charge kit, where the rechargeable battery pack replaced the AA holder).
So you won't see the black battery at all and, if you want a white USB cable as well, then any standard micro USB cable will work.

The only malpin deal i actually want happens to be the only one i miss

Thanks, almost bought one at full price just last week. Glad I held off - just reserved one now.

None near me within 30 miles sadly but seems to a few left in a few stores! Great price

same here mate, fill your pockets people that have stores near them!

There's one listed in stock near me and I can't add it since someone else snapped it up. Gutted as I was looking for one the other day. Great price though, heat added.

I already have 2! Should I go for 3?

Nearest one to me is Canterbury, 35miles away. Ah well.

Got the last 2 in brentwood... phew!

Got to go to Sheffield,not too bad though,i live in london !!!!

Did anyone get a confirmation email after reserving and choosing pay in store? When I checked out on my phone and chose pay in store, it said I had reserved mine and it will be available in 30 minutes. But I never got an email confirmation or any communication after that? Does that mean it didn't go through, or is it still reserved?

But why are they black when most of the controllers are white? Absurd.

I'm going to call the store in the morning and ask. At least I know I'm not the only one with this issue!

Huh? Do you mean why are they black? Or why aren't they white? But also most Xbox One controllers are actually black.

Either way, it's a moot point as the battery pack goes inside your controller so you won't be able to see it (see my post above). I mean it's not like you've only been using white AA batteries before now, is it?

The battery pack is hidden but the lead is black which won't match all controllers, so that could hurt some people's OCD

More importantly, why couldn't they just give us USB charging as standard, a la PS4? Making the controllers reliant on AA batteries is so backwards.

... Obviously Microsoft wanted us to buy an extra peripheral for £££s

... I'm just bitter I missed out on this deal, my local Maplin is out of bloody stock!

I wonder if there will be more coming in stock? Though maybe not as this is a probably a clearance campaign. Sigh.

My issue with that is *every* time something has a built in battery, it dies way before anything else on that product does. Thus I personally prefer the removable / replaceable method.

Yeah, I much prefer the removable batteries as well. I just hate having to have a wire going across the room to continue playing - reminds me too much of 90's gaming aha.

I bought 2x controllers for PS4 just so I can swap over when one needs charging and remain wireless.

I did think of going for this deal seeing as it's cheap, but I quite like the Duracell AA rechargables. I have been using them from 360 to Xbox One and only had to replace them once in 10 years. I wouldn't want to have to buy 2x Elite pads with a internal locked battery, so I definitely prefer the removable option all Xbox pads have.

Presumably the 3rd party versions are just inferior? A tenner gets you a twin pack from Venom.

Just called to ask. They confirmed that it's been reserved and ready to pick up. So if it said it's reserved after you ordered then it's fine. For some reason they don't send you an email confirmation.

Yes, I was just trying to work this out - looks like they have half the battery life (official is 1400mah, Venom is 700mah)

These look like the best 3rd party deal I can see on Amazon.

amazon.co.uk/Con…rge

Compared to the official one:
- £10 for two batteries
- Slightly less battery life (1200mah vs 1400mah)
- Xbox doesn't show charge level status (says fully charged until depleted)

Picked one up from st Helens, worth 7.50

Same as me, I went to the store as it was local and there it was waiting for me

running low, nearest store with stock for norwich.... london or birmingham...

Does Maplin still offer 10% to NUS holders? Not much but still an extra 75p haha

Don't worry. Just pop to Currys or Asda, even Tesco have started stocking em, and grab a Venom twin pack Xbox one battery pack (rechargeable) for just £9.99

Steal of a deal at this price - heat!

I just wonder when the batteries were actually produced? I bet 2013, still they should just about hold their charge until the Xbox Two in 2020 give or take a year.

Ah ok, cheers. I don't normally go for third party stuff, but might plump for it if I know they are actually recommended. Don't want to pay more than a tenner.
