Probably depends on the batteries you're using but roughly how long does your controller last for?

I'm still using the AA duracells that came with it from the midnight launch.

The batteries that came with the console lasted me 3 days. My boyfriend lasted 5 days. The brand I am using now has lasted 6 days now and I use the console a lot so 6 days isn't bad.

There is a joke in that post there that I will just leave alone.....LOL..

On topic, at some point it becomes financially beneficial to simply buy the play-and-charge kit.

How long does the play and charge kit last? Just wondering as I'm underwhelmed with the dualshock 4 battery life and quite content with the Wii U Pro controller battery life

Yeah yeah, I caught what you mean...

I am getting a play and charge soon. I know they will be on sale soon and plus if I am lucky I might be able to use my powerup rewards points to get one free, so I don't mind waiting a bit. At this rate the $6 dollar batteries I bought (12 in the pack) should last me till the end of the year.

If you put down the controller where the Kinect can see it, it will put the controller in stand-by which really helps preserve battery life. But in the end, a play and charge kit is infinitely better.
if (instr(buf,sys_errlist[errno])) /* you don't see this */

Really? I had no idea that the kinect does this. Normally I just throw my controller on my bed if I am watching a movie and wait for it to go to sleep.

Setting it down and not blocking it from Kinect does wonders but the one thing most are forgetting is simply plugging it into a USB to Micro USB cable. Turns off the wireless radio and works just fine without batteries.
