As someone who bought the Bluetooth adapter and battery pack for the Xbone controller, I would recommend against it. The battery dies too quickly, sometimes it won't actually turn off even though the light on the controller is off (the only conclusion I can come to when I picked it up after only an hour of a gaming session the next day and it's dead).

 

I'd deal with the cable unless you absolutely need the wireless part.

i use Panasonic eneloops with my xbox one controllers.  way cheaper to replace too. 4 pro 2550 mAH eneloops are 15 bucks. 2 to keep charged and 2 to play with. if you need a charger just buy this thing, it comes with 1900 mAH eneloops and is fucking amazing. the circuitry for the charger is really REALLY good. everybody i know that uses them and had a charge and play kit says these things last way longer on one charge and you can use them on every battery powered device you have.

edit:
i bought the controller dongle and it works wonders for me, its expensive though but you need it for audio pass-trough etc. and i though tyou also need it for multicontroller setup which is what i use it for.
