The kit includes a 9' cord that is USB on the end that goes into the xbox and the other end goes into the controller where the little slot thing is. It also includes the rechargeable battery pack that goes in the back of the controller rather than normal AA batteries. That's it other than the instructions.

The cord that plugs into a USB port on your console, and into the battery of your controller, and the rechargeable battery pack (won't work with the regular battery pack that comes with your controller).
So two items, 1. Cord, 2. Battery pack.

It Comes with

1) WIRED microphone
2)Charge Dock for the Rechargable Battery Sets you get (plugs into your xbox)
3-4) 2 rechargable Batter Packs (Usually last around 7hours apiece)
5)Ethernet Cable (Can be used for system links)
6)HDMI cable (which i think is better than the cords)

Will the Play & Charge kit charge the battery when not in use?

I want to play unplugged, but I get no indication that it charges unless the system is on, the controller is plugged in, and the controller is active. Is that the only way to charge it?

The controller will charge when the system is off. Make sure the cable is hooked up to the system and controller before you turn the system off. There will be a red light on the controller while it is charging. It will charge faster while it is not in use.

The Play & Charge only charges the battery while the console is on. You can buy a separate charger for your controllers that will charge it all of the time though.

This will work with any standard-shaped Xbox 360 controller. This accessory IS the rechargeable battery, it does not require any other components. This replaces the standard battery case located in the back of your controller.

After purchase, you may separately buy the standalone rechargeable battery pack for use with the charger cord from this kit, instead of buying multiple Play & Charge kits, although the savings is generally negligible.

Question

play & charge packs vs. quick charge packs

Are these battery packs (play & charge kit) identical to the old white ones that came with the double charger (quick charge kit)? I have the old white double charger and just need new battery packs for it. Seems this is the only way to buy replacements now. Don't care that the new packs are black, just want them to fit my double charger (quick charge kit).

These are the same Microsoft rechargeable packs and are compatible with the Quickcharge kit--in fact, they now sell that same charger but in black now.

If you check websites like Buy.com, they often sell the battery packs individually--sometimes unique "outdated" colored battery packs get deeply discounted. Just have to keep your eyes peeled.

Only that Microsoft no longer manufactures the white version and most of those still being sold as "new" are lesser-quality, third-party company knock-offs.
