Microsoft Xbox 360 Play And Charge Kit
Released November, 2005
The Pros:Charge your wireless controller while playing. Save on batteries by using rechargeables. Make is so you can play without a battery pack in the controller.
The Cons:Battery doesn't charge fully. Doesn't act as a USB interface for the wired controller. Xbox has to be on for the battery to charge.
The play and charge kit is to be used in conjunction with the wireless controller. The kit comes with a battery pack and the charge cable. The charge cable attaches to a plug in the battery pack, and then uses a USB 2.0 slot on the console.

When the controller is charging with the cable, the user is able to still play games. However, the controller is not acting as a wired cable, but instead there is just enough power overtop of the charging that allows the wireless functionality to work. Unfortunately, the play and charge kit does not allow wireless controllers to be compatible with PCs.
