Will the Xbox 360 Quick Charge Kit work with Xbox One?

#1LegatoJoePosted 11/12/2013 10:32:26 AM
I own the product linked below (Xbox 360 Quick Charge Kit) for my Xbox 360 controllers. It features a dock and I have two battery packs to go with it.

Will this product work and allow me to use these same Xbox 360 battery packs in an Xbox One controller? Or is the size/shape of the battery pack (or some other specification) different for the Xbox One controllers, such that I cannot use the Xbox 360 Quick Charge Kit/battery packs in an Xbox One controller?

I basically just want to know whether or not I need to buy one of these (linked below) if I want to recharge my Xbox One battery packs:

Or can I use what I already have?

Thanks everyone!

No you cannot use the 360 play and charge kit. Honestly I'd recommend getting a set of rechargeable AAs.

Diablo, what are the advantages to doing that versus getting the Microsoft kit? Is it a matter of just price or are you considering other factors too when you say you'd prefer the AA rechargeable batteries? Thanks.

Honestly I had bad luck with the X360 rechargeable battery packs. I have 3 that stopped accepting a charge. So I switched to a set of rechargeable batteries (Sanyo Eneloops) and never looked back. It ends up being cheaper too. You can get a set of 4 (enough for 2 controllers) plus the charger for $22 on Amazon.

Yeah I have heard of a number of people having issues with those battery packs but honestly for some reason mine have been fine. It might be because I bought them only a few years back when the Xbox 360 Black Slims started coming out (I sold my previous white 360 to upgrade to this one), so I got the black version of the Charging Kit instead of the white one, so maybe they fixed something in that time, I have no idea. But with the black ones I have now (since I have black controllers) I have had no issues.

I am hoping the issue is resolved, whatever it was, for the Xbox One charging kits. I guess I will have to weigh the pros/cons versus that and just using rechargeable AAs then.

^This is what i did but I bought the Sanyo Eneloop pack that comes with the charger, 8 AA batteries and 4 AAA for about 35 when I bought it way back when.

I've had several charge packs for the 360 die. Rechargeable AA's are cheaper, and usually come in a set of 4+ so you can charge one set while using the other and never have to be without batteries.

I think the new play and charge kits will be much better. They switched from nickel metal hydride to lithium ion batteries.
