  1. Controller Battery Level Issue


    I hadn't used my Xbox One controller for some time, so I charged the battery using a play & charge kit. Now when I start playing, the battery level indicator shows almost full but then after an hour or so I get a warning that the battery level is low -
    taking out the battery and putting back in then brings the power level back up. The battery is fairly new and the controller has the latest update - any ideas why this is happening?

    :)

  2. Battery level sometimes says low even when it has a full charge

    Sometimes my Play and Charge battery pack alerts me that the battery level is low and almost dead. However, the battery is fully charged. It seems to happen when I turn my controller on and off frequently. Anyone else having this issue?

    Controller Battery Level Indicator

    This is silly. On the 360 you simply hit the guide button. Now you have to wait until the controller becomes erratic before you know the batteries are low?

    Is MS working on a fix for this?

    Controller not working

    Controller issues can be a result of multiple problems. 1: Battery issues, low battery level or loose battery. 2: In game control settings. 3: At worse it could be controller damage, which you will need to get fixed or buy a new one.

    Controller battery level becomes critical every time I plug in the USB cable and connect it with the console?

    I don't think you understand what the problem is. Batteries aren't the issue. My controller works fine with my batteries. The issue is, as soon as I plug a USB cable and connect it with the console, the battery level suddenly changes to critical. That's
    why I'm not able to update my controller WITH the controller plugged into the console. I have no battery issues whatsoever in normal gameplay.

    Battery level indicator not accurate when two controllers are on.

    Hello!

    Thanks for reaching out to us here on the forums with this inquiry. I understand you're having an issue with the battery level indicator for two separate Xbox One Wireless controllers. So I tested it out here on our end with two controllers one I knew had
    low battery level and one with brand new batteries. What we were able to figure out was that the controller that's battery indicator level is being displayed is in fact the controller that is assigned as Player 1. When you switch from the low battery controller
    to being the active Player 1 profile signed in it will then show the dying controllers indicator. It is a good point and I would recommend submitting the feedback through
    Xbox Ideas. Find an appropriate Idea Drive that is "Accepting Ideas" and submit your suggestion on resolving the issue there. Hope this helps!

    Xbox One Controller Via Bluetooth = Severe FPS Drops on Windows 10

    I have had the exact same thing happen. I use a battery pack in my Xbox One Controller on Windows 10 and it works completely fine. The FPS drops to unimaginable levels as just before the battery is going to die. As long as the battery has juice or the
    controller is plugged in everything is fine. Maybe your issue is related to that.

    Controller battery level becomes critical every time I plug in the USB cable and connect it with the console?

    Shouldn't it not matter since I'm plugging it in to the console and not an outlet? Again - my controllers' batteries charge fine. That's not the issue here. How do you explain the battery level magically becoming critical when connecting it with the console?
