Might be needing one of these soon

Liking this deal, liking it a lot

Would be perfect if it was rechargeable instead of needing batteries.

I can understand this would be good in certain situations. But I can't understand why virtually everybody doesn't only deal with rechargeable AA batteries in this day and age anyway.

Erm, it's in this day and age that every device comes with its own battery rather than requiring removing/inserting batteries. Rechargeable AAs re a 90's thing.

​if it was rechargeable it would still use a battery.......just use rechargeables or get a battery pack with charging dock, surely they do them for this?

​no they don't.....
I any many others prefer batteries as you can use rechargeables, then you can spares charged up for an instant swap instead of having to plug in or not use if out and about.

Plus if your battery in said device becomes rubbish and only lasts a few minutes your device is useless instead of just getting new batteries for a couple of £

And if it died halfway through a game?

I just got an xbox one yesterday, already got a ps4.

It's fair to say I was gobsmacked when I saw two AA duracells in the box!

Let's face it, everyone is gonna buy a plug & charge kit, & a lot of those will get the vastly overpriced one from MS, so they're just offsetting some of the console cost. Pretty cheeky when sony include it if you ask me.

As for the 'you can just change batteries' argument, I don't get that, just leave it plugged in overnight & if you must do a 12 hour session or something then leave it plugged in. Buying a 10 foot microusb cable is far cheaper than buying a play & charge kit or rechargeable batteries & a recharger.

On the plus side the controller does feel nice & plays well, plus Forza Horizon 3 is ace.

are these compatible with old xbox ones?

​lets face, most sensible people already have rechargeable batteries and a charger thus making it either free or a few quid for some extra batteries. Plus after charging overnight for a few months or a year that battery pack isn't going to last half as long.

No it is not but this is the cheapest for a Bluetooth controller yet

So you saying this is the cheapest wireless official deal at the moment but you can pick up a wired one cheaper?

Additional Question for anyone who is happy to help - OP says this is the newer version of the Xbox One controller, what's the difference to the previous version and how can you tell which version it is when buying on or the other online??

The Xbox One controller is also a dedicated wired controller (it has been since day one) once you plug in a USB cable the wireless goes to sleep.

This one has wireless And Bluetooth built in so you can use on Xbox or PC instantly, the older model was wireless only.

​you should be able to get a standard wireless controller cheaper, this also allows you to connect to your PC/laptop and perhaps your phone/tablet? as it has Bluetooth as well as the standard wireless for you Xbox.

with the standard wireless controller you can only use it with your Xbox wirelessly, you can also use it on your PC/laptop using a USB cable.

and when the PS4 battery has been charged so many times and eventually fades to zero.what do you do? bin it?

Cold it takes batteries.

From xbox website support.xbox.com/en-…-pc

Windows 8.1 and Windows 7

When you connect an Xbox Wireless Controller to your Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 PC with a micro-USB cable, Windows will automatically download and install the drivers for the controller. If Windows is not set to automatically download device software, you can check for updates through Device Manager.

Honest question for the anti-batteries crowd: after a year or two, what is the performance of the PS4 "built in" rechargeable like?

Price is now showing as £37.85

Thanks will amend price

Don't forget these controller's will also work on the Xbox Scorpio when it is released next year so they are pretty future proof.

Absolutely horrific.

On the other hand, everytime I chuck in a new set of duracells in my xbone pad, good as new.

I'm not a fan of the built in battery myself, they're finite and generally don't keep their performance for the lifespan of the product they're in (Mobiles, Ipads and Controllers in particular)

Just got the Xbox wireless dongle for Windows 10 today. I didn't realise the new controllers had Bluetooth. If I had known this I would have upgraded the controller instead because my computer already had Bluetooth

Indeed it boggles the mind that anyone would want integrated batteries in everything they buy. I would only want them in something where space/mass (custom fit LiPo for example) and performance are critical.

Separate rechargeables are so much better for a huge number of applications. It's as someone thinks AA batteries are obsolete and nobody uses them anymore or something, when it's obvious most people have a bunch of stuff that requires them. I need a couple dozen around my home at any given moment!

That is why said people should just use rechargeable AA batteries for these controllers, for a start you will NEVER have to be tied with a cable if it dies with spares on hand, let alone the blatant battery wear on well used controllers and such with integrated batteries more than a year old. Multiple advantages are clear...

Bluetooth stability of these controllers is currently questionable varying by Bluetooth host performance. The dongle is almost certainly the better bet.

I use it with an elite controller on PC. The only problem I have experienced is very occasionally (once every few weeks maybe) when you turn the controller on it flashes and does not connect immediately to the dongle.

The solution is to yank the dongle and immediately plug it back in. The controller is still paired, it is just as if Windows didn't load the driver properly for the dongle. A quick remove and replace in the same USB socket sorts it in seconds if you experience the same.

During actual usage I found it to be flawless and lag free.

So here we have the new version controller in black, has anyone come across news of an black xbox s being released or definitely not being released? I had white then traded for storm grey but really want black. The new s is such an improvement on the old xbox one aesthetically, does anyone think not I wonder?

As someone who bought both the original (and official) play-n-charge and quick charge kits for Xbox360 I would say removable batteries are a definite plus point and supporting regular or rechargeable AA batteries is the best thing ever! If I'm comparing Xbox pads to PS pads this is one of the things that tips the scales in Xbox's favour. I can't stress how badly it sucks having to charge a wireless pad with a cable, especially mid gaming session. As others have stated you can have a bunch of batteries charged and ready to go, swapping them out whenever necessary, and for the price of the official battery pack you can stockpile a supply that will last the lifetime of the console.

Now £38.85

I want one but I have an Xbox one pc controller with the rip off dongle

thanks! ordered! xbox one contoller analog problems.. grrr8)
