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? 

$20 I think. It's alot cheaper than buying a whole new controller when your battery life starts to get bad after a couple of years, so I actually like that Xbox controllers have replaceable batteries. But I do wish they bundled a rechargeable battery with the console and separate controllers.
