Simply awful. Does not charge when controller plugged in. Does not matter how i plug in battery, which direction, or how long. Have left on overnight multiple times, and battery only charges to 10%. It is super finicky. If the battery shifts 0.5mm, it will not charge.
I bought this to play games on Windows 10 on PC, and there is no way to tell how much charge the controller has. While charging in the controller, there is no light on the controller that indicates even that it's charging at all. It only rumbles slightly when you plug it in.Also when you open Xbox Game Bar on PC, the battery indicator shows a pretty low amount of batter, even when I know I had this thing plugged in and charging for hours. I understand the Game Bar indicator is made for AA batteries and can't reliably tell how much battery you have for other types of rechargeable battery. But this is an oversight, and should be fixed, because the rechargeable battery is licensed by Xbox and for use on Windows 10.Bluetooth functionality works great, and I like the fact that it comes with USB C and not Micro USB. The cable provided is 9 feet long which is also good.After getting the controller charged some (again, unless you own an Xbox there is no reliable way to tell how much charge you have) I recommend updating the controller's software via the Xbox Accessories App.As for functionality when gaming, this pack is backwards compatible with older controllers, but I am using it with the new Series X controller (Robot White). I would say they took everything great about the Xbox One controller and only refined it slightly. It is the best controller ever made IMO, so no need to change the formula.Just please fix Game Bar on PC so that we are able to see how much charge the controller has! Or allow a downloadable Widget to add to Game Bar that can do it! (I will then update my review to 4-5 stars)
After its first charge I played Assassin's Creed Valhalla until I got a low battery warning. It has now been plugged in for 3 days and every time disconnect it I get a low battery warning. I have tried the console's USB, a wall adapter, leaving the controller on, shutting it off nothing works and it wont recharge.
