Yeah last I heard the thing was only using double-A batteries. Frankly, I'd rather have a controller with a 4 inch long wire than one that uses double-A batteries. Thank God the thing's rechargeable. --- If you think my name is silly, you should call me either Rob or LaughingThesaurus. No need for being strictly formal on a message board, right?
It's rechargeable with the separately purchased rechargeable battery pack, or you can just use a set of rechargeable AA's. --- "Immigrants. That's all they do, you know. Just driving around, listening to raps, shooting all the jobs." - Malory Archer GT: Bessy67
So what you guys are telling me is if I put recharagbles in there they will charge by plugging in the USB?
The rechargeable battery pack, yes. Rechargeable AA's I'm not sure. --- "Immigrants. That's all they do, you know. Just driving around, listening to raps, shooting all the jobs." - Malory Archer GT: Bessy67
Ok if anyone watched the video about the controller posted on IGN then you'd know. So you can use a rechargeable battery pack ala the play and charge kit, or use AA batteries, though AA rechargeables won't charge through the controller. THEN you can also turn the controller into a wired controller, sans ANY batteries, by using a microUSB cable, which turns off the wireless radio on the controller. --- Sent from my iPhone via PowerFAQs 1.11
