Xbox One Elite Controller Question

I read on IGN's review that the new xbox elite controller doesn't come with a plug & play kit, and so I am now questioning does it have the function to be rechargeable? Does the current plug & play kits work on them? Or is there one due to be released which will work with them?

What's the deal? Can we get some clarity on the rechargeable status of the xbox one elite controller please?

You can use the rechargable battery from the Standard X1 controller on the Elite controller.

Hi , Has anyone else had any trouble down loading the Accessory App for the elite controller ?

Anybody know where to buy one or availability. E-Bay has them at over inflated prices , Game has no pre order stock  or Microsoft store, but they are on e-bay with Game boxing showing before release date HOWS THIS lol.

Those are probably ones people have already pre ordered and paid for, knowing the limited supply they will be taking advantage

Brought the controller from amazon uk for £119 and also a charging station with rechargeable battery for £ 23

as you can use the old rechargeable batterys but the covers don't fit elite controller has a different battery cover to the normal contollers

if its not broke don't fix it

Does anyone know if we can buy extra "parts" be they first party or not? like branded d-pads that kind of thing?
