So i'm currently using the method where i got my old Phone charger to power my xbox one controller. Thus removing the batteries completely. But i hate having a wired controller...

If i buy standard rechargeable batteries and use the same method i was using before will it work and will it be safe for the controller and the batteries?

So you're asking if it's safe to use a phone charger to charge rechargeable batteries?
My answer is no. With any type of rechargeable batteries, you should always use the appropriate charger. Not an old phone one.

I suggest you buy the Play-N'-Charge one from Microsoft. I have 3 of em. Then you can charge it at night and play all day.

If I misunderstood your question, please let me know.

I bought these instead of a play and charge kit. They last me a ton of time, so swapping doesn't get in the way.

lol im too lazy to read the description of the item... Yeah i had some of those, but in my room theres no convenient outlet for that and my charger didnt shut off when the battery was full... so one day i kinda forgot about them and i ruined the battery

I would not recommend doing so. If you get rechargeable batteries though why not just get another two that can charge from it's appropriate charger while you play so you can just switch them out? Been considering this

Don't even mess with rechargeable batteries. Just get the Play & Charge Kit from Microsoft.
