    Yeah, you can buy play and charge kits. My local asda had 3rd party ones cheap

    I got a few third part ones from DX for about $3 each!
    they can also be charged buy a computer or anything with USB unlike official Plug 'n' Play

    thanks guys i havent a clue what i,m looking for really and wanted to surprise him with something for christmas instead of him normally asking me and telling what and where to buy things! lol can i get them from tesco then?

    I went for 2 x 4 packs of Aldi rechargeable AA batteries; 4 kept on the charger and four in the controllers - keep swapping them round (every couple of days), no problems and much cheaper! :whistling:

    I got one, and my batteries last AGES, and they hold their charge over many cycles, so he wouldn't need anything again for ages. My rechargeable Microsoft Xbox battery packs gradually startedto lose their charge.

    These are ace. Could be cheaper elsewhere but they work well and they look really cool on a desk (quite neat and glow). Might make a nice prezzie...

    Yeah its a pain ain't it, usually the batteries run out just when you want some peace and quiet....and the shops are shut. :x
    I ordered the one from play.com today. :thumbsup:

    Use these on mine and do the job. :thumbsup:
    Can be charged on or off the controller.

    id kill for a 50 icher......tv

    we just bought a rechargable battery charger and batteries, saves us a fortune

    The official wired controller's (17.99 from Play) are brilliant and you can use them on a PC if it takes your fancy
