My first set (the ones in the box) lasted until a few days ago (easily over 100 hours of gameplay).

I own a XBOne, PS3, XBOX360, and Wii. I'm in it for the gameplay, not the logo on the box. Can you say the same?

My batteries that came with my X1 are still going strong. I was so impressed I actually took one out and just use the other to run my controller, I swapped the one I took out with my car battery and it's running that just fine. MS FTW!

A few weeks at least. That's the main advantage of batteries over plug n charge. If you get two pairs of rechargeable AA batteries instead of the charge kit, you will never have to charge your controller again. You simply keep 1 set of batteries charged while using the other, and in a few weeks when the charge runs out, you put the charged ones in and start charging the ones you just used.

You have to change batteries every few weeks but there's no charge downtime when you want to play and the charge lasts weeks, not hours.

Jokes aside this guy speaks the truth. I had 5 battery packs for my 360, two of them died, the other 3 were fine I just retired them for recharageables.

I went balls deep with Eneloops and bought like 20. Now they power my 360 controlller, my X1 controller, 2 fan remotes, TV remote, stereo remote, wireless keyboard and wireless trackpad. Its just easier swapping out and sticking them on the charger than rebuying.

I've never actually timed it but I'd guess I get around 30 hours per charge of my eneloops.

The route MS went is BY FAR the superior one. It gives us the choice. I cant believe people actually tried to show it as a flaw. I feel like an idiot for buying a digital camera I cant put AAs in.
