he rechargeable battery pack included in the official Xbox One Play & Charge Kit "lasts about 30 hours" on a three-hour charge, Microsoft has revealed.
The figure means that the Xbox One battery pack offers 20 per cent more playing time than the Xbox 360 equivalent, which offers up to 25 hours on a single charge.
The Play & Charge Kit is expected to cost £19.99 when the console goes on sale this November.
But should you choose to stick with disposable AA batteries, you may get an even greater play time than using the official rechargeable pack, CVG claims.
AA batteries on an Xbox One controller "will usually last about 40 hours," the site states.
Improvements to the Xbox One's controller were discussed in a new video released by Microsoft earlier today. Alongside enhancements to the controller's design, general manager of Xbox Accessories Group Zulfi Alam also discussed the controller's reduced input lag, making it 20 per cent faster than the current Xbox 360 wireless controller.
