The Xbox Play USB Charging Kit is a rechargeable battery pack, which can slot into your Xbox controller where the batteries normally reside. Bundled with a USB-C cable, you’re able to plug the controller into the console – or any other power source – to charge it up.

Handily, the Xbox Play USB Charging Kit allows you to charge up your Xbox controller both while you’re gaming and when it’s powered off – you can even use the Xbox console for charging while it’s in standby mode. This means you’ll never have to stop gaming again if you see the dreaded battery indicator flash up on your screen. 

This is an official product from Microsoft, which confirms that this rechargeable battery pack is compatible with both Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One consoles. Microsoft claims the battery pack can fully recharge within 4 hours.
