Rated 2 out of 10 by Drunkenrage This is a bad product
I purchased this battery pack about 2 months ago and it just gave out on me yesterday. It doesn't fit the controller very well and it doesn't hold a very good charge. i had to charge it every day and would not last very long. its not worth buying this battery pack.

Avoid buying these. The first charge and use worked fine. Then it would no longer charge after that. I would look elsewhere for batteries.

I bought a charging/docking station for my XBOX 360 controllers last year in november. One of the batteries got stepped on by my roomie so I ordered another one since it broke. The batteries are not too bad. I've gotten about an average of 48-60hrs of gameplay out of them at first and now over a year later, i'm getting about 36-48hrs of gameplay out of them. I've been happy, all in all. With this battery i ordered, I thought i'd be getting a black one since thats what the pic shows but it came as a white one. Rather ironic because I had ordered a used controller to replace my dead backup thinking it'd be white (because of the pic) and when I received it, it was black and grey LOL. So now I have 2 black controllers, one black battery and one white battery.

These batteries are Great I bought 2 3mnths ago and they work perfect I think most reviews on these batteries are kids not a big deal. Also they are compatible with the charge and play so if you have the charge and play cable your good to go. These batteries are worth 10.00$ even if they only last 4mnths that's what you would spend on disposable batteries in a couple of weeks if not more so im not going to complain I get about 24 hours out of mine a week and charging them is as easy as plugging them in they fit in my controller just wright. I don't like them when there loose but you should take your time putting them in anyway. So performance is perfect and I like the design.If this review was helpful your welcome.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Mack227 Best battery buy!
I had to give this a review hearing all the people saying that these batteries dont last long. I have had 2 of these batteries with the Nyko charging station going on two years and have no problems! The microsoft batteries and charge kit I have went thru 3 of them in a year. I have yet to replace one of these Nyko batteries so to me this is the best route to go! I am sure people can get a new battery and it go bad quick. Maybe thats what happen to me with the microsoft ones? All I can say is that for almost 2 years these Nyko batteries charge quick and are going strong! You cant lose with these batteries!
Rated 10 out of 10 by ALItm1 Just Awesome
First, I want to say that the people who are complaining about this are not using it right/ taking horrible care of it. I only bought this product because when I was moving my gaming setup to setup my HD PVR, i lost one of the rechargeable batteries. First your going to need to buy the chargebase for $20 to $30( its worth it if you enjoy Xbox) it already comes with 2 batteries. BEfore you buy a fancy new mic or a new xbox game, get this product. without this a xbox game would not be worth the buy as every 10 minutes you gotta get new batteries. Im ALItm1, and i support this product.
Rated 2 out of 10 by Irondiesel58 Nice Design but not much else
I bought this battery cause they did not have the original batteries. Nice Design but charges quickly meaning it's life is not long. If I use it for about 2-3 hours one day I'll have about 2-3 hours on the second day before the lights start spinning on the controller. Nice gold flash on the back. It's tight in the controller and even chipped my charge station which is the Microsoft one. I'll be sticking to the origonal batteries even if it means ordering them and waiting so think ahead and stick to the originals.
Rated 5 out of 10 by Reddwnf Is NOT compatible with MS quick charger
If you have a quick charger, and are looking for an extra battery, spring for the MS batteries. In spite of the descriptions claim that this is compatible with the quick charger, it doesn't even light mine up. So, don't buy this, hoping to get it cheaper, get the MS one instead; as much as it pains me to say that.
Otherwise, it seems to have a good life, as long as you have a play and charge cable.
Rated 5 out of 10 by CMoth May damage newer controllers
Decent product otherwise. Keeps a good charge and seems to perform as well as the OEM battery pack. However, it's a tad bit out of spec size wise. I have noticed that with the newer controllers over time the slightly oversized battery can crack the battery pack housing. Not good. I would love to recommend this product for it's performance and value but I can't since it could possibly damage your controllers. Sorry Nyko, resize your batteries.
Rated 10 out of 10 by MamaD Worth every penny
We've had the NYKO base and these rechargeable batteries for probably 6 years. This battery is made to fit the NYKO charger. It fits perfectly. They STILL stay charged for up to 25 hours of gameplay! My kids are gamers and we've definitely gotten our money's worth. This sure beats wasting money on basic rechargeable batteries or regular batteries. I highly recommend these batteries and the NYKO charger base!
