PSA: Xbox One Rechargeable Batteries Work With Xbox Series X|S

If you're lucky enough to be getting your hands on a brand-new Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S this week, you're going to need to think about how you charge your controller. Do you use disposable AA batteries, pick up some rechargeable AAs, or use the Xbox Rechargeable Battery Lithium-ion solution?

Well, if you've picked up one of the Xbox One Play and Charge kits in the past, you'll be glad to know that the battery included with those kits will work just fine in the brand-new Xbox Series X|S controller.

In fact, that's exactly what comes with the all-new Xbox Rechargeable Battery solution:

There's one big difference this time around, however, which is that the new Xbox Series X|S controller uses USB-C for connection purposes. You'll need one of these cables in order to connect it to your new console.

Fortunately, you get one of these included with the new Xbox Rechargeable Battery solution as pictured above (available on the Microsoft Store and at various other retailers), or you can always pick one up separately instead.

Something to keep in mind!
