Why does it take so long for my xbox controller to connect?

So I bought a new Xbox Super Elite shortly before Christmas and although being extremely happy with it – recently the controllers have taken up to 30 minutes to connect to the Xbox, even when wired in with the play + charge kit.
I never had this problem with my old xbox and was wondering if there was something that could speed up the connection or if there is something that could speed it up?

    I would try plugging it in to the xbox without the battery pack in, then pressing and holding in the xbox button for 3 seconds to start up the controller.

    It takes a really long time for my controllers to connect. Is it something wrong with my controllers or my Xbox. The xbox is just over a year old. What should I do.
