    I want to buy for my xbox 360 controller a rechargeable battery that can lasts a long time after a full charge, i found 4800mAh Rechargeable Battery
    But somebody suggested me to buy this:
    1450mAh USB Powered one
    Is it a battery with USB port, seems quite interesting, but i don't know which one would be better for xbox 360 wireless controller, could you please give me some suggestions?
    Thanks in advance.

    You could just buy the plug and play kit which comes with a battery and a USB cable that docks on top of the controller so you can recharge it. It's also relatively cheap at $20 USD.

    i third that. Its less of a headache so when your batter is going dead, the circle on the controller will start lighting up in a circular motion. That means its time to charge. Plug it up and go on your merry way.

    I'd go for a plug and play kit, less of a hassle. You don't need resync your controller ever again. Just plug in the kit and swap it into the xbox and the controller is synced.

    This is me though, but I can easily blast through very many batteries in one weekend when I'm in the mood. So I basically see benefits with plug and play kit rather then batteries.

    The PnP kit is a sham. I got it and the battery goes to shit after a few months to the point where you need to keep it wired up just to use it since the battery only lasts thirty minutes or so.

    I went ahead and bought rechargeable AA batteries, four of them, and never looked back. For almost three years now, each set of fully charged batteries gives me 100 hours of gameplay, no problem.

    Here is what I use

    Xbox 360 Quick Charge Kit

    It's nice because you can keep one battery on the charger, and once the battery you're using goes dead, you can swap it out for the charged one and put your dead battery on the charger. It comes with one battery

    The biggest difference between them is the hard drive. However, even the Arcade model can any 360 game and go online like the Premium or Elite. That said, I would try to get the Premium if possible.
     

  10. agreed.. simplest,cheapest and most effective

    I dunno about all that. I had my plug-and-play kit for almost 3 years before it died out on me. Just bought a new one in April and it's running superb.

    Used mine for about 2 and half years before I needed to grab a new one. So don't seem like that's the problem then. I still will stick to PnP because of reliability.

    Honestly if it were me, I wouldn't. I would go with what is known to work which is the official PnP kit from Microsoft. It's worth the $20 USD, I assure you.

    I just have a dock station for my batteries and then just swap them. I get hours of play time out of my batteries as well.
