So I found that my nephew is using regular batteries for his Xbox controllers and I want to get him a recharge pack for his 2 xbox controllers.

What's the best recharge pack to get? Anyone have any recommendations?

I just use the genuine play & charge kit for $35:

I don't really trust the cheap knock-offs to give good battery life.

cheaper here, just wait approx 10 days:
http://www.zavvi.com/games/games-accessories/xbox-360-twin-rechargable-battery-pack/10055305.html

That's a UK site and the 10 days estimate is the max time for UK-UK delivery, not international which is estimated at 15 working days.
or get it from amazon

Firstly, a UK site again and you have to add a delivery charge.
Secondly I don't think amazon will ship that product to Australia.

Thirdly, pirates trilogy hey ...

^ from that link:
Fully compatible with Microsoft's Xbox 360 rechargeable battery (not included)!

It also doesn't look like you can play while charging since it's a dock. The one I linked charges through the usb port - but the controller communication is still done wireless so you can plug/unplug at any time - also charges while the xbox is off but still plugged into power.

Python, Genuine is always best, but if you are after a non-gen charge kit see link - http://www.consolemate.com.au/rechargeable-battery-pack-charger-p-455.html. For $6.00 I guess you can't go wrong.

Sorry Python link seems to be broken. Checkout www.consolemate.com.au.
I have recently purchased controllers from them. They seem very professional.

Don't use the fake ones.

They're so nasty.
We ordered a few from China. $2 a pop, they RRP for like $6-$12 and last about a 3 months before they don't hold charge.
