Nice price, although battery capacity is low – 4800mAh Rechargeable Battery with USB Charging Cable for Xbox 360 Wireless Controller Reviews

Pros:
The build quality is okay, and the cable sits nice into the controller.
Battery has no fit issues either.
Cons:
Battery life is okay-ish for a cheap set, but I wouldn't be happy if this was off the shelf at your local console shop.
The main pain is that they seem to discharge fast when not being used, and leaving them plugged in all the time seems a waste, so when you come to play you find the batteries low/dead.
Other:
If you play often, look for a battery pack you can charge externally whilst using a secondary pack and swap them out.
Bottomline:
Not too bad, most other sets will probably be like this.
Maybe look at getting just the cable and look around this site for NiMH with good reviews/high capacity.
