    Xbox 360 Wireless Controller Battery Charging


    I have a rather technical question to ask. I am working on a project for a class at Iowa State University (I'm studying Electrical Engineering). I need to know what pins from the USB charger need to be connected to which contacts on the battery to charge
    the battery. I have dismantled the controller and am re-purposing it. I am using components from the controller (specifically the charger, rechargeable battery pack, motors, buttons and trigger mechanisms). My project is to create a modular device that attaches
    to a pinball machine that can be placed over the flipper button on one side and have a button on the other to allow both flippers to be operated on one side for single arm amputees.

    :)

  2. Microsoft you have a typo.

    Charger for Xbox One

    Complete with a charging cable and rechargeable battery pack, the Xbox 360 Play and Charge Kit is all you need to juice up your Xbox 360 wireless controller—even in the midst of battle.

    the charging station is strange

    Hello gamer,

    This behavior can occur if one or more of the following conditions are true:

    . The battery has reached the charge limit.

    . There may be an issue with the charge cable.

    . There may be an issue with the battery.

    Things to try:

    1. Determine the part of the recharging system that may be causing the issue.

    Controller

    Try AA batteries or try a different Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack in the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller to verify that there is nothing wrong with the controller. If the controller works with different batteries, the controller is not causing the issue.

    Charge cable

    Try a different Xbox 360 Play and Charge cable to charge the battery. If the battery charges correctly with a different charge cable, the original charge cable is faulty.

    Rechargeable battery

    a. Use a cotton swab and some alcohol to clean the four gold contacts on the Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack and on the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller.

    b. Try a different Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack with the charge cable. If the second battery charges correctly, the original battery is faulty.

    Xbox360 Controller USB Incompatibility with PC

    Hi,

    To use an Xbox 360 controller on its own on a PC, it must a wired controller. It does not matter if the USB port is 3.0, USB 2.0 devices will work on USB 3.0 ports.
    The Xbox 360 Play and Charge can not send controller data back to the PC. It will only charge the battery, or power the controller if no battery is present. A play and charge for 360 controllers is a charger, nothing
    more.


    Xbox 360 wireless controllers are always wireless. To use a Xbox 360 wireless controller on a PC, you'll need an Xbox 360 gaming receiver.

    Only the Wireless Xbox One controllers can be made wired with the correct Micro USB sync and charge type cable.

    Cable play&charge to windows 10

    Hi,

    When using this cable on a 360 it will allow you to continue to play while charging. It doesn't make the wireless 360 controller a wired controller, in fact the controller remains wireless.

    Hence, if you plug this into a 360 controller and a PC, it will just charge the battery - or power the controller if no battery is present. It won't make the controller wired. This is because the 360 wireless controller was only designed to be wireless.

    To use a 360 wireless controller on your PC, you'll need a 360 Game Receiver.

    Xbox360 Controller USB Incompatibility with PC

    The play and charge cord for the Xbox 360 is only used for powering the controller and charging the included battery. It does not transfer data.

    If your 360 controller is the wireless model, you will have to get a USB Xbox 360 wireless receiver for the PC. This is what actually connects your controller to the PC.
