Works Well! – 3600mAh Direct Charge USB Battery Pack for XBox 360 Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Please remember : I've been using this thing for less than a week. Batteries like this tend to degrade quickly (quicker because it's cheap) It works well. The battery life lasts a while so far. The cord is long enough for me to use, but it's not too long (I'd say it's about 4.5 feet long) It's easy to use Build quality is good (nothing seems like it will fall apart easily) Works with my official X360 controller.
Cons:
I could definitely see the cord being too short for people if they want to use it as a wired remote. I bet this battery is gonna die quickly.
Other:
The design of this thing is such that it plugs directly into the back of the battery, not into the top of the remote like the official ones. This means that the USB connection in this ONLY transmits power to the remote, no data. The remote still connects to the X360 wirelessly. However, this also means that you can plug this into ANY USB port and it will charge your controller. A nice perk.
Bottomline:
This thing is CHEAP and it works. Not much more I could ask for.
