XBox Battery Worn Out in Six Months

Last fall I got an XBox360 for my birthday. Last month I had to buy two new battery packs. Do they really wear out that fast?

Most rechargable batteries have a limited number of charge cycles. But I would think that they’re supposed to last more than six months. I’ve eliminated a cable or controller issue by swapping things around, and whenever I try to use this one particular battery it… well, it just doesn’t work. I can use it plugged in via the USB cable, but then I can’t sit across the room on the comfy couch.

Anyway, batteries are not that expensive, as far as XBox360 accessories go, so getting a couple of new ones didn’t set me back that much. It’s just surprising that they wore out so quickly.
