    Does anyone know if and how well the "Apple Batteries" work with an Xbox controller. I know they have lower power ratings than a standard AA battery.

    Would this cause any issues?
    Anyone try this yet?

    Standard AA battery? You mean 1.5V as EVERY AA battery is?

    They will work fine. Apples batteries are completely fine and not 'low on power'.

    Perhaps you're referring to the voltage of rechargeable batteries, which is slightly lower than alkaline batteries - typically an AA rechargeable is 1.2V as opposed to 1.5V for a new alkaline.

    This usually makes no difference, but the instructions for your equipment should say whether it accepts rechargeable batteries.

    360 controllers will take any AA battery.

    The question is why are you not already using rechargeables? Especially when you can buy a pack of four and a 15 minute charger for $12 and batteries rated 2500 vs Apple's 1900 mAh.

    I was talking about the 1.2-1.5V difference.
    Thank you for the help.

    I try to use rechargeable batteries, but half the time someone has lost them or just not put them back on the charger. Hence why I'd like to buy my own stash of batteries.


    Thanks for the help everyone.
