Series X comes with a controller that doesn't have an internal battery? Can you explain this further? Does it have a rechargable external battery or something? 

Much like Xbox One's controller, it is designed to accept AA's, because MS found that when surveying their fanbase, about half still like to use AA's. You can purchase a rechargeable battery pack for it, by buying the Xbox play and charge kit, but afaik it doesn't come bundled with one of those rechargeable batteries, just 2 non-rechargeable AA's.

Wow. I had no idea XB1 controllers still came with AA batteries. What's the price on a recharging kit new?
