Great I don't have to buy batteries. Battery packs can be charged separate with the controllers. Charges fairly quickly. I would recommend it.

I've had this induction charger for over a year now I think. It works perfectly, charges quickly and each charge lasts at least 8 hours of continuous play. It also looks nice.

Not sure how efficient it is but it does look sleek. Batteries last a good 10-15 hours of gaming each.

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This product SUCKS!! We followed the instructions, let the batteries fully charge before using the first time, and both the batteries will die within 10-15 minutes of starting to use them... AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN FULLY CHARGED!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Get's the job done Feb. 17 2011
By Nicholas Cassel - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this charger around December and so far this is what I can tell you about it.

cons.
1. There's no way to tell how charged te batteries are using the xbox button in the middle of the xbox controller, when you do the bars for the battery life are always full so you wont know when the charge is going to run out.

2. The charging stand where you put the batteries on isn't designed very well for charging the batteries without them being attached to the controller, if you try and charge them without it connected to the controller you have to try and line it up just right with the little LED on the charging dock and the battery, if you don't the light showing you how charged the battery is will stay red (no/low battery power) and will never change to yellow or green (fully/high battery power), resulting in you over charging the battery. The easiest way to prevent that is to just have the battery connected to an xbox 360 controller when you charge it and it will slide right into place. (P.S. I myself might have accidentally over charged the batteries because the light indicator showing how charged the battery is will only go to yellow. I'm not sure if this was caused by me or if the batteries themselves were defective or something of that nature.)

3. The average time the batteries last after being charged is around 3 to 5 hours of use, which is abit shorter than other batteries but if you aren't using both of them and have a second xbox 360 controller (you can charge the batteries without them being attached to the controller, it's just harder to line them up with the charging bay!) you can pop the dead battery into there and put that on the charging bay and then rotate them when those batteries get dead. If you are using both of the battery packs at the same time however get ready for some downtime for you and your friend for the batteries to recharge.

4. The instructions that come with the "Xbox 360 Power Base Induction Charger" do not tell you how long you should charge the batteries for or how long you shouldn't charge the batteries for in case the light indicator is messed up or something. (As stated above my batteries no longer show a green light when charging and will only show a yellow one.)

Pros.
1. The batteries work, I've had them for a few months now and they still stay charged for 3-5 hours of use.

2. You can use rumble without the the xbox 360 controller turning off (I'm talking about the issue for the xbox 360 controller where when you use rumble the batteries jiggle out of place for a moment and then that turns off your xbox controller which can get really annoying for online play or playing in general. Here's a video showing you a fix for that problem in case you decide not to buy these. [...])

3. They are really light making the xbox 360 controller alot lighter (Not sure if everyone sees that as a pro, but I do.)

4. The charging dock is small and lets you charge two batteries at once and they don't have to be connected to the controller to charge (but it is harder to charge them without being connected to a controller.

I would also like to add that I do not know if the batteries automatically stop charging the batteries once the charge light turns green to prevent over charging the battery, but I it might. If anyone knows a added comment to confirm would be great.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissappointing Dec 30 2010
By Jared R. - Published on Amazon.com

I used to have a Nyko w/ rechargeable batteries before it got stolen. Those batteries would last 25-30 hours on one charge. These only seem to last 3-4 hours. The batteries feel lightweight, too. Kinda the way cheap batteries feel compared to real ones like Duracell. They DO work, just was expecting more.

2 months and its given me no problems at all, charges last about 5-6 hours for me and the LED lights look good in low light rooms. Glad I purchased this charger.

1.0 out of 5 stars One use then trash! June 3 2011
By M. Swift - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a BIG fan of the idea of induction charging - best idea EVER (if they can get it to work properly). Dreamgear doesn't seem to have it here. My experience with this product started off strong. Two controllers with the included batteries were working great after first charge. The second charge seemed to leave one of the controllers with almost no battery life - it would die in minutes. Then it wouldn't stay on at all. After third charge by other controller did the same thing. Nothing I do has worked to get these batteries to charge again. I'm really disappointed! I've also been unsuccessful in contacting the company. I give up on induction charging for the XBOX!

3.0 out of 5 stars Middling Product March 9 2014
By B. Martin - Published on Amazon.com

This product has pluses and minuses. Whether it's right for you depends on a number of things.

There are two big pros:
- You can charge the batteries outside of the controller.
- The batteries are light, making the controller lighter. Typical rechargeable battery packs are much heavier.

Cons:
- A full charge only lasts a few hours.
- You have to line up the batteries on the charger "just right". You can't just set them down effortlessly. This may seem like a nit, but it does require a little extra effort and time.

I find these useful combined with a more traditional battery pack that charges while plugged in to the Xbox. When they run out, I switch over to the long-life battery pack.

If you need to play a long-running game without interruption, such as Black Ops 2's zombie mode, having one of these die on you mid-game can be very frustrating. If battery packs dying mid game isn't a big concern, this charger is nice.
