of course i only started playing xbox one after the warranty died, but my controller and many others i have heard, charger ports have bent so you unable to charge using the usb cord, and forced to use batteries,
I'm still using the MS charge and play on both of my controllers for almost 2 years now. They are a tight fit plugging them in but other than that mine work great. I used to use rechargable batteries in the 360's controller but changed to the charge and
play kit . I prefer the charge and play option myself.
