    Xbox play and charge USB-C vs Micro USB


    I've inadvertently bought a play and charge kits with the wrong connector. I've got the micro USB connector ones rather than the USB-C one.

    Are they the same thing apart from the connectors? I notice that the USB-C ones are out of stock everywhere, and one of the boxes has been rather prematurely re-used and I don't have it anymore, so I'm wondering if I just keep them and buy new cables?

    Thoughts?

    :)

    Xbox play & charge cable for my phone?

    Hi,

    It's NOT a USB C cable. USC C cables are for newer devices, in any case, it wouldn't fit.

    The charging cable the Xbox One uses is a Micro USB.

    Sites like Amazon will tell you what types of devices a Micro USB will charge, as long as you read that you won't buy the wrong cable.

    Xbox play & charge cable for my phone?

    The cable from the Xbox One Play & Charge kit is a standard MICRO USB cable (not USB-C).

    The cable itself can't be too powerful. It's the host device that "puts the power into the cable".

    But I can assure you: I have charged my phone, my controller and my power bank with that cable without any issues.

    Just beware that your phone has to have a Micro USB connection. If your phone has a USB-C connection, you will need a different cable.

    How do I charge the Play and charge kit for Xbox series X controller.

    I would think, you would plug in a USB C cable instead of the micro USB cable, and charge it the same way you do now.

    Xbox series x controller question

    Hi,

    I u understand that the Series X controller will be using a USB C connector to charge the battery (same as the Elite 2 controller), so charging stations that use micro USB won't work.

    Will the Xbox One Play & Charge Kit be compatible with the Xbox Series X?

    Xbox One accessories and peripherals will be compatible with Xbox Series X. As to whether the rechargeable battery packs are compatible with an Xbox Series X controller, that has not yet been revealed at this time, to my knowledge. However, the new controller
    will use USB-C for its charging port instead of the Play & Charge Kit's Micro-USB plug.
