  3. Will the Xbox 360 Quick Charge Kit work with Xbox One?
2 years ago#1
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.

http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Quick-Charge-Kit/dp/B009NAVOMG/ref=dp_ob_title_vg

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.
