Anyone else going through these like socks? What a joke! I need to know if anyone has found a GOOD, STURDY version of this product that will last longer than 2 weeks. Please advise!  :speechless-smiley-004: :speechless-smiley-004: :speechless-smiley-004: :speechless-smiley-004: :speechless-smiley-004:

I have.  It's called the wireless, rechargeable XBOX One controller.  I've never had an issue with it..... :P

How does it recharge though? Don't you need to temporarily hook them up to the deck until the battery's full?

I bought an Energizer station from Shoppers and it works great.

No, they sit in a stand alone cradle (like the energizer one that darthpaul just mentioned).  We have the energizer one (which does look cool with the lights), but back foot broke so we have to make sure they sit just right to charge.  The other (2 controllers per dock) is a Nyko.  Solid base with small indicator lights showing when charging and charged.  Both need a plug, but the bonus is they don't need to be next to or even near the system, just an outlet.

I got the Nyko at Costco.  They come with the battery packs and I think I paid $20 for it at the time.  Great price.
