Yo, why do Xbox One controllers still need AA batteries? Like... Why? I know Microsoft knows better. Everything has its own rechargeable battery now a days. Bruh
@Spork and Foon, cause Microsoft sucks. It's that easy
@Spork and Foon, the Microsoft batteries only have a one year life span of recharging. So it would cost them less to make them AA compatible than to have to reservice their controllers once a year or so.
@daily joke, I've had the same rechargeable battery since 2013
@Shodai Hokage, strange mine lasted almost a year I sent it back (under warranty) and they sent me a refurbished. After the third time sending it back I dropped it and bought a bulk pack of Duracell from bj's. I get a month out of 2 batteries. (I play a lot) and its proving cheaper than buying a new recharge once a year.
@Canadas bad side, you suck
@Spork and Foon, Well good and bad news for you, at E3 Microsoft revealed a new controller with an integrated 40 hour rechargeable battery. It'll probably cost an absolute sh!t ton though.
Well, considering Lithium Batteries lose their charges over the years, it's better to use actual batteries. My PS4 controller's battery barely gets 4 hours before it needs a recharge, my steam controller on 2 AA batteries lasts about 20-30 hours. Then again, the PS4 controller has a baby sized 1000 mAh battery
This is not efficient
