Them things are rubbish, after about 3 months they don't hold a charge so it's just another wired controller.

Probably better to get one of these http://www.argos.ie/static/Product/p...RY+CHARGER.htm

Bought two these the last time they came up on BA and regret it. Both don't physically connect as securly as the Ms ones and one needs to be constantly hooked up to function for more than an hour. Charge on the other is very poor. I've an official one back at my parents and that became really poor after six months so i've not much hope for the "decent" one that's still working.

Cheers OP have 2 reserved Great little Christmas Presents.

And for the people thats complaining about them they're 6 odd euro the same price as a decent packet of batteries and this is almost guaranteed to last longer for an xbox controller. Im sure if they're looked after proper and let go dead before being recharged all the time they should be fine Got 2 from hong kong a while back and they lasted about 6 months and It was the charger connections that broke more so than the charge they take.
