Turn wired controller into wireless

Both my 360 controllers and two of my wireless receivers have passed away so I'm gonna order a brand-new controller for my PC. I'm thinking of going for the Xbox one controller because if tright here is one thing I need to crmodify Mirosoft for, it's their controllers !

The wiremuch less controller through receiver is presently a tiny yet also expensive for me, however it looks favor the wire from the wiremuch less controller is actually detachable?

I can't uncover a lot information around it, yet it seems the actual difference between the wired/wireless controllers is that the wired one has a micro usb slot and also the wireless one has a 3.5mm audio jack?

So is it feasible to disconnect the wire at a later phase and buy the xbox one wiremuch less receiver and connect the "wired" controller to it?

Thanks!

The Xbox One controller doesn't have a wired version, they only make wiremuch less versions (except for 3rd party controllers which are constantly wired). When you plug in a USB cable, all wireless functions in the controller shut dvery own and it becomes a wired controller. So yes you'll be able to disaffix the wire and buy the wireless dongle at a later date

Before you execute it be conscious of this -> https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/559989-pc-xbox-one-wired-controller-problem-pc-stuttering-windows-10/ issue. I am not one of the guys posting tright here, yet I have actually the very same problem. As quickly as the controller is turned off (doesn't matter how) while my COMPUTER is on and the controller is linked to the dongle, dwm.exe offers one core of my CPU at 100% and I need to restart. Sometimes this happens as soon as I simply start GTA5 via the controller still on.And of course there is the occasional "controller cant discover dongle bug" wbelow you have to reattach the dongle to get it working aget.

The XBox one controller for XBox and also the one for PC are identical, other than that the PC version comes with a micro-usb cable.

The 3.5mm headphone jack was added to a more recent version of the XBone controller.

You will just must buy the Wiremuch less adapter from Microsoft for about 20$ and you're excellent to go. I think you deserve to attach up to 8 controllers to one adapter (wirelessly).

The fusage on the wireless reciever before goes bad extremely quickly. Mine passed away on me as well however after soldering past the fusage it functions perfectly aobtain. I simply make certain not to have actually it plugged in once I'm not using it.

It's ridiculous that they put such a crappy fusage on there, more than likely so you'd have to go out and buy a brand-new one..

I wonder if Microsoft solved this in the latest run of those (before disproceeding them first-party). I have actually 2 of the babsence Xbox 360 wireless receivers and one is connected to my HTPC 24/7. Been choose that for the much better part of two years without fail.
