This seems good, why the cold voting?

Original Poster

Guys. Whats the reason for voting cold? This is a better deal that the ones that are currently posted.

hot from me £19 on amazon and £15 on ebay

ordered thanks op

Totally agree got one of these off amazon before christmas for a very similar price and it works very well. Hot from me.

Very good price for this. Nice spot!

good price, i had one but the battery would only last an hour after full charge so gave it up

probably voted cold as the batteries wont last very long, the cheap ones soon stop holding their charge. mine are about a year old and the pad wont even turn on without a lead plugged in.

saving up to buy official ones. (or might change the cells for decent ones)

I got one of these in black from amazon works very well...........prob a bit cheaper now as white ain`t the most sort after colour anymore(_;) Good product though at a good price heat added!!!

I'd personally invest in a normal battery charger that supports other batteries as well as AA, but looks like a hot deal compared to other retailers.

Also, Play are selling one a quid cheaper but without the stand by the looks of it.

Don't see the point if you've gotta unplug them to charge them?!!?!?!
Might as well grab yourself some decent hybrids like Eneloops, same hassle, similar price but Japanese cells ie MUCH BETTER!

'Play and Charge kit' leads. Charge the batteries as you play. The batteries no longer hold any charge.

how long have you had yours? mine were good for a while (being higher capacity than standard) lasted a month or so before getting steadily worse and worse...

I have one of these, from argos about a year ago. The batteries, on a full charge, last for a good 5 or 6 hours, if not more.

If your batteries are only lasting an hour, then either your pad is slowly draining the power even when off, or youre not charging them up fully.

Seriously, these things last for ages. For 8 quid it's a no brainer.

um, you know when you're not playing the game? You sit the pad in the cradle, and it charges the battery. then when you do play the game, the battery is charged. It ain't rocket science, and sure as hell beats the Play and Charge kit i used to have.

My bad, from the pic above I foolishly assumed you had to unplug the cell pack to charge, on closer inspection as you say you simply just drop the entire controller into the charger hence the charge contacts on the back of the packs. Still **** they don't give you any info on the cells used

Ordered. Worth a punt at this price. (_;)

Bought....nice one and just got a Quidco payment through....so free really!!!!

Haha Jonniejabs, same got £80 from quidco, and need one of these!
So thanks

These batteries are not compatible with play and charge, they must be recharged on the cradle!
