    its much cheaper buying a charger with 4AA batteries imo. I got mine from a local supermarket for £10 with 4x high capacity batteries, I just switch 2 over and charge them when they are empty.

    Well, Comet at Teesside park had a few on the shelves last week. Might be worth giving them a ring if you're prepared to drive that far.

    Theres another place in the Metro Centre that may have em, can't say though as they are a competitor, but they are Upstairs in the Red Mall next to Barclays, you probably know who they are. :)

    Did I edit a Dons edit?? You told me to edit it so I did?

    (Like I said im going to get banned at this rate lol)

    Sorry whoever edited my post with the Competitors name in?

    This has nothing to do with this subject and I think as I have now got a charge and play this thread can be closed as all needed information for people in the Newcastle area has been posted.

    Also Siztenboots the controllers take AA batteries not AAA
