Xbox One Wireless Controller + Play & Charge

For R190 more (thus, at R849) you get the Xbox One wireless controller plus the Play and Charge kit which allows you to recharge while you’re playing.

The long-lasting battery charges in less than 4 hours and gives you about the same duration of playing time are the normal AA batteries, thus between 30 and 40 hours. But batteries are expensive so the Play & Charge kit is worth the extra R190.
