    Copied from my post on reddit to help people and hopefully get this fixed..

    Last time I posted this a few people had the same problem and I could never figure out why. About a week ago I changed my setting to energy saving mode and it stopped doing it and displayed accurate readings. I never really thought anything of it and assumed
    that it just got fixed as I have reported it multiple times.

    Yesterday I switched back to instant on and the problem started again. So my solution is to go to energy saving mode and it stops it for me.

    I turn my xbox on by pressing the xbox button on controller rather than "xbox on" or pressing the button on console, not sure if that has anything to do with it but if you have been having the same problem as me it's worth a try switching to energy saving.

    TL;DR: If you fully charge your battery and the notification comes up shortly after playing, switch your console into energy saving mode rather than Instant on.

    :)

    Xbox 360 charger

    Is your console turned on? Are you able to see if the battery symbol shows it is charging?

    These charging kits, unfortunately, do not last forever. Here is the play and charge support page which has more troubleshooting options. It does say Xbox One, but the kits work the same on the 360.

    Hope this helps!

    The Kinect & the Controller

    I can't confirm it, but I remember reading somewhere that the cord that comes with the play & charge kit won't actually charge the batteries in your controller - it will only allow you to use the controller while your batteries charge in the kit. If true,
    I find this quite disappointing...

    Controller problems

    The cable from the play and charge kit will not charge regular Alkaline batteries. So you will need to replace the batteries when they are depleted. The battery pack from the play and charge kit is a rechargeable battery pack that can be charged when it
    is depleted and there is no need to replace it

    Xbox One Play and Charge and other battery related issues

    I guess we have a different problem then, my battery notification pops up but my controller doesn't disconnect. It's just the display thats inaccurate for me.. Sorry I couldn't fix your problem. Sounds like maybe a bad battery you have.
