The Xbox One Play & Charge kit should have been standard equipment with the Xbox One controller, but today on Newegg, you can get them both for just $1 more than MSRP of a controller by itself. It sure beats futzing with AA batteries. [Xbox One Controller with Play & Charge Kit, $61]

Just need the kit by itself? Amazon has it for a slightly-discounted $22. You can also get the third party Nyko PowerKit Plus for $18, which comes with two battery packs. I own this, and while the battery life isn't great, it's easy to just swap controllers since your other one will probably be plugged in.
