Chargers for Xbox Controller FAQs

What charger can you use for Xbox controller?

To charge an Xbox controller, you can use a compatible charger, such as the official Xbox Play & Charge Kit or third-party chargers specifically designed for Xbox controllers. For example, Anker 747 charger comes with USB-C ports and can connect to the controller and provide a reliable power source, ensuring your controller stays charged for uninterrupted gaming sessions.

Can you use any USB-C charger for Xbox controller?

Generally, you can charge the new Xbox controller with nearly all USB-C cable that is rated as Charge & Sync cable. That's because new Xbox wireless chargers use rechargeable batteries for energy which need a compatible USB-C cable to charge. However, it's better to use certified USB-C chargers like Anker 737 Charger featuring PowerIQ 4.0 technology and ActiveShield 2.0 for fast and safe charging.

Is it OK to charge Xbox controller with a phone charger?

Yes, it’s generally safe to charge an Xbox controller with a phone charger as long as the charger has a compatible micro USB connection. This means that iPhone chargers with Lightning ports may not work for Xbox controllers.

However, it is recommended to use the official Xbox controller charger or a specifically designed Xbox 360, series s or x controller charger, or docking stations for Nintendo Switch to ensure optimal charging performance and avoid any potential compatibility issues.

Can you charge Xbox controller with a fast charger?

Yes, it is generally safe to charge an Xbox controller with a fast charger. However, it's also important to note that using off-brand third-party chargers or adapters that are not specifically designed for the controller can carry some risks. We advise you to use certified Anker chargers with protection mechanisms to safeguard your charging.
