    Xbox Series X controller not charging while off with battery pack


    What is the correct way to use the Xbox Series controller battery pack? It's not charging when the controller is off, is there a way to charge it with the Xbox off?

    I haven't been able to find good information on this.

    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.

    Xbox Series X Controller questions

    Hi,

    1. It will work wired and wireless. You can only charge the battery while being wired if you have a battery pack installed. Regular AA re-chargeable batteries can not be charged during play. The official Xbox One X/S battery pack will be released November
      10, same as the console. As far as I know the controller does not come with a USB C cable, unless you are also purchasing an Xbox Series X/S console (cable is in the box). Yes, your PC will be able to charge/power an Xbox Series X controller.
    2. Yes, once they run out you'll need to charge the battery. If you need to do this externally (AA batteries), you can connect the controller via USB and power the controller via the cable with no batteries installed. An official Microsoft fully charged battery
      is rated for around 30 hours. Re-chargeable AA batteries will vary.
    3. Yes. You can use a Bluetooth USB dongle if your PC does not have BT built into the motherboard.
    4. No. Windows 10 will already contain the necessary software to run your controller. There is an Xbox optional Wireless Adapter for Windows 10 available that uses its own wireless protocol and will allow some extra functionality such as headsets, chatpads,
      and the Xbox Stereo Adapter.

    Well here's what I'm doing. I don't suspect I'll need a 2nd controller for a while, so I simply reserved, payed off the Play and Charge kit by itself, which does come with the battery pack. Again, as others have stated too,
    there's the controller bundle, which you get the play and Charge Kit, battery pack, and of course the controller. Rather than the console itself doesn't come with the Play and Charge Kit or the battery pack rather than AA alkaline batteries. (If you recall
    this is how it was with XBox 360 Play and Charge kit as well; a battery pack came standard with the charge cable because there'd be no use for the cable othe.rwise as it simply doesn't charge alkaline batteries.)

    Xbox series x controller question

    Why does the Xbox wireless elite series 2 controller not have a removable battery?

    Hi Bradleylong,

    It is a great question and something I guess can’t really be answered within the forum, Tbh, I am not thrilled about it either. I am happy with the current system of buying a controller with a play & charge kit as any issues with charging and its as simple
    as buying a new battery pack.

    It will be interesting to see if the new Series X follows and has its controller battery pack sealed.
