    Xbxox 360 official battery pack - stock anwyhere?

    As the title states, anyone know of any well-known, reputable shops that have stock of offical xbox 360 rechargable battery packs? I can only find the play and charge kits (cheapest £12.99), but I just need a new battery.....

    I was in the same predicament and didn't want to pay 13 quid on a battery and play n charge so I went on fleabay and paid 1.74 for a battery shell that you can fill with 2 AA batteries in it. Works fine for me!

    Interesting.. you seem to be right. Even microsoft's official store doesn't have them.

    I wonder if they've been discontinued - will try and find out for you

    Edit: It's still listed on xbox.com, but absolutely nowhere seems to have stock. I doubt anyone at the xbox office will get back to me today, but i'll let you know once they do

    Cheers guys.

    I still have the original battery compartment somewhere that I could put rechargable batteries in, but I prefer the ease of using the play and charge kit....

    I can't see why they would be discontinued but it's weird how there doesn't appear to be any about - if only I'd known I could've stocked up when the Zavvi stores were closing down!

    Yep dealextreme has it's uses, but not for the official xbox battery pack.

    Cheers anyway but while it may be better than using AA batteries..... a couple of the comments from the dealextreme site:

    "Cons: off color from xbox controller. also the fit is not very good it looks a little cheap"

    "amazing deal for under 5 dollars........ if you already own a OEM Play and Charge, it doesnt look that good comparing it"
