I would own so many dead controllers if lithium batteries were built into them. Thankfully they will always work with AA batteries.
I'm using play and charge kits for my Xbox controllers (not expensive at all) and they last for about 30 hours per charge. I have one that is pretty much dead (lasts maybe 2 hours) due to heavy usage. Totally expected result and yet still enough to be used on my 2nd controller.
