Cheap but nearly useless – 4800mAh Rechargeable Battery with USB Charging Cable for Xbox 360 Wireless Controller Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- yes, it is much cheaper than original ones
- the cable works fine
- the battery fits perfectly in the controller bay
- the colour is the same
Cons:
After unpacking i realized that the casing of the battery was loose, therefore i had to glue it back together (wasn't a problem at all)
BUT...!
Then I tested the battery with a special charger equipment and was shocked. The battery is lightyears away from 4800mAh - the result in a five time charge and decharge cycle was 558mAh (yes, this is the right number, believe it or not). And that isn't that much of course...
Maybe i was unlucky or the battery gets better over time but i don't think so.
Other:
cheap if you only need the cable or want to build your own battery packs
Bottomline:
The quality wasn't good enough therefore i wouldn't buy another one :-(
