So you bought the new Xbox One® and were dismayed to find a pack of AA batteries for your controller.

Well, the rechargeable battery is still the better choice and getting this Xbox One Play & Charge Kit from Monoprice is the best choice yet!
This battery pack is designed specifically to fit the Xbox One controller. It features a capacity of 650mAh. which is enough for up to 6 hours of continuous gaming. Additionally, it can be used while charging, so when it gets low, just plug it in and play on!
Unlike the Playstation® 3 controllers, which can only be charged when plugged into the Playstation system, this battery pack can be charged from any USB power source that is capable of putting out at least 200mA of power, which includes almost every USB port, charger, and external battery charger ever made.
The battery pack uses a USB micro-B connector for power and comes with a 19" USB A male to USB micro-B male cable.
