Found 19th Oct 2009Made hot 5th Nov 2009
This is regarded as one of the 360's best accessories... a must have

Got one a few months ago for £24.99!!!

Comes with 2 batteries and a charger/controller dock for two wireless controllers.

Build quality is second to none and compliments the 360 perfectly.

2 hour charge time for one controller, 4 hour for both.

Dont forget quidco!

If I get a PC reciever... do you think they will work on my PC?

I could with one of these. How does it compare too: ]http//ww…htm

Do the batteries have a higher capacity in this one? If not i'd rather just spend the extra £2 and get it right away from Argos.

Er sometime today plz for the reply... geez people.

Batteries in the Nyko last about 25 hours, but you can keep charging them after use as they have no memory effect. Not sure about the argos one.

One reason I chose this one over the argos one is that the Nyko charges via the mains, so one battery charges in 2 hours or 4 hours for both... the argos one charges via USB so will take a lot longer.

Plus the nyko is flat and tidy taking up less space

hope this helps

It's not a controller; they're just batteries and a charging dock. You've got to have the controllers. So, yes - if you've got standard controllers and buy a standard PC adaptor they'll still work.

hi,

i've had a search around and cannot seem to find the capacity of these batteries, any one know how mAh they are?

thanks

Been looking into this but can't seem to find a mAh rating...

as it lasts for 25 hours, same as microsoft's official rechargeable battery which according to this uk.gamespot.com/for…691 is 1800mAh

Is this one the same as have some hmv e vouchers to use up

No, its the official microsoft one on HMV... its only for charging the official microsoft battery packs, i.e. you can't store controllers on it. Plus it only comes with one rechargealbe battery.

Bump... price reduction was £17.99 now £14.99....

Got them when this was first posted, really good.
The controller feels better as this battery pack is slightly smaller and lighter than using the normal one.
Also great that it plugs into your mains so it charges even when the 360 is off.

Would definitely recommend them at 14.99.

Decided to go for the Argos ones seen as play are O.O.S

It's a good piece of kit and I imagine it charges official MS battery packs seen as it's the same charge style instead of the contacts on the back of the pack on the Nyko ones.
