I have the same problem, there energizer batteries and when fully charged the xbox says there only half full. The xbox doesn't show any power drop in the batteries untill they drop bellow half. So i can play for 4-6 hours without the battery indicator moving
then when they actually reach half it indicates them loosing power correctly.
I imagine this feature works best with the Play and Charge kit. Presumably it's difficult for the controller to recognise percentages of different batteries and they standard and the official MS pack is used as a baseline.
I could be wrong but that would be my guess. How do you quote the percentage if you don't the capacity?
When I think I've had a good run on my AA recharge batteries I either keep the next set close to me or just switch them out mainly in MP. Single player it doesn't really bother me to let them run right down. I find I'm better at judging it than that gauge
will ever be.
Ok, just charged the pack up, and it's full according to the icon on the Xbox One, I also installed two brand new Duracell Ultras to compare, and they were shown to be full as well, it seems the battery indicator is working OK on my console.
I think it does work better with the play & charge.. store bought or even rechargeable ones might not register the capacity correctly. Also we know recharges only lose power after after so many times recharged so it may show as fully charged but to the
X1.. it might only read half full...
