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?

on Microsoft Xbox 360 Play & Charge Kit (Xbox 360)
the xbox 360 console has to be on to charge the controller..
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.
There is a light the comes on when you put the cord into the paddle that indicates it is charging. You can charge it while your playing the game or anytime that the console is on but it cant charge wirelessly
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.

the system does have to be on to charge it, however you dont have to have your tv on and the system will automatically turn itself off after it is charged.

Yes, you have to charge it while it plays. Otherwise, they do have several options or kits to charge it from a wall without being plugged into the game.

as long as that red light on the cord is on it is charging the controller, it even charges the controller when the system is off unless the controller is fully charged
