Controller Charger Deals – Official Xbox Play And Charge Kit, Energizer Batteries For Cheap, And More

In a battery race, the official Xbox Wireless Controller easily trumps most of its competition. Still, there’s a good chance that your controller has run out of juice at the worst possible time, but fortunately, Target Circle Week is here and there are several deals on right now for spare batteries. These discounts will automatically be applied if you’re logged into your Circle account, and membership is free for this program. There’s also some hard-to-beat deals on Xbox wireless controllers at Target right now, so if you want to double up on hardware and batteries, this is a good time to do so.

First up, the most basic solution: fresh batteries. The Xbox controller can use both normal AA batteries or a rechargeable battery pack, and some Xbox players prefer to throw in a few Duracell or Energizer batteries when they’re in a pinch.
