    Xbox 360 Controller Battery and Charger

    Can anyone recommend a cheap and reliable charger for the 360 controller, I have bought a couple from China off fleabay and the batteriers do not seem to last long, my son is eating up AA at a frightening rate.

    It needs to to be able to play and charge at the same time

    With the 360 the official ones are usually the best.

    £12.34 @ Amazon

    However, I have noticed the price rapidly changing on this item. I bought it for about £10.19 a week ago. It then changed to £9.59 a week later, then a week after that it was £11.29. It's really strange, but I would advise you to wait a bit to save a couple of quid.

    As for the product, it is decent and does the job. Play and charge at the same time + a battery pack and it will last you roughly 2 years.

    If you still have the AA battery holder for your controller (I assume you do), then I'd just get a pack of Sanyo Eneloops.
    Eneloops are rechargable batteries but behave like regular alkaline ones as they able to hold the majority of their charge for up to 1 year.
    That makes them great for 360 controllers as once one set dies, just stick another in the controller.

    Also, with using AA rechargables, you can use them with a variety of appliances compared to the official (overpriced) 360 battery packs.

    Anyway, that's what I'd recommend.
    Hope this helps.
