Battery not staying charged with play and charge kit.

I got a new 250 GB Xbox 360 and  a play and charge kit.  The charge seems very short, only a few hours.   Also when I connect the cable to charge, it says its fully charged but when I unplug it and turn off the 360, when I try to turn it on again with the controller, it won't turn on and U have to plug the cord into the controller to turn it on again and charge it up again.

I charge mine with the console off, maybe give that a try OP.

With your console on connect the P&C cable up then press the guide button and select 'turn off console', with the cable attached it will charge the battery when the console is off.
Mine usually holds a charge for around 8 hours or so but I have always charged it this way. I have never tried to use the kit when the console is running.

I always had issues with the play and charge kit. I got the Venom charge base from Amazon. Batterys last 3x longer then the MS brands. Works much better and reliability.  It may be third party but the hardware isn't illegal to Xbox Live.
