Well it's not really a surprise when you keep switching controllers (and thus batteries). The situation would probably look quite different if you used only one. I always have a primary controller (on 360 the one with the faceplate and on X1 the revised controller that came with the X).
Considering some are saying they had 5 DS replaced because of battery, or that my PS3 control survived 12 years without issue. And even cycling the controllers I probably had like 500 cycles of charge on each and 0 issue so far. So I really can't say the battery is an issue.
Before the pandemic? On a regular weekly basis throughout the year? How? How do you mange to get 40 hours a week for gaming?
During pandemic I could probably double it or even get 100h a week.
