Summary: I have purchased 2 of these chargers through Amazon's sellers and have not had but 1 battery that was any good. Unfortunately with the low price it is not cost effective to return items and there are no replacement batteries that will work with this item. I would not recommend this product to anyone.
Summary: Ok, so i set this up...great looking and great design by the way. however when i started charging i used a blue wiimote and then a white nyko wiimote. the nyko one was making a funny sound. after a minute or two the blue wii one had the chage full indicater light go on. so i'm not sure if i got a defective one, or if it really din't need a charge, and why the one is making a humming sound. i tried another nyko wiimote and it did that same thing.
Summary: Well, got this just under a year ago (about 10 months) worked great until a month ago. Batteries are not charging (or the station is crapped out now sure which). So, off to find new batteries. Not sold separately, and the wand now doesn't stay connected magnetically to the charger. So its not even charging. Waste of my money to go hunt down a place to get them - spend 20 and get something that won't work in the long run. Not happy.
Summary: My first charge base worked fine for about 6 months. So, I recently purchased 2 packs to charge 4 batteries, however 2 of the 4 batteries will not charge. (this is the reason I gave it 2 stars). Make sure you save your packaging in order to return in case it doesn't work. Other than that the charge time is very quick and easy to use. Another nit is that we could not find a place that sells just the batteries.
Summary: Purchased this charger but unfortunately right out of the box one of the battery were faulty. Been trying to search for a replacement battery but no luck. Nyko tech support unable to help. 1st battery already draining out quickly after 1 month. Will have to purchase another product for my 2 other controllers.
Summary: We bought the first unit and loved the looks and what it was supposed to do. However, one of the two batteries would not take a charge, so we returned it and Amazon kindly send us a replacement of charger and two batteries. I wish I could pick and choose among the four batteries (in all) we've received! The replacement unit also had one good and one bad battery. With 0 for 2 we regretfully returned the unit.
Summary: I have had this for a short time. I feel that the batteries should hold the charge longer while the remotes are in the charger. If you charge the batteries to a full charge and then turn off the charger(overnite), when you turn the charger back on the lights go RED for an hour or longer before it goes back to white(indicating charged). Even without use. I don't understand why the can't hold the full charge overnite. The charging indicator(Red-White) should NOT change.
A nice looking but faulty designed induction charger.

Summary: After trying this charger out for a couple of months, I am sad to report that it is a piece of junk. I just returned my Nyko's Charge Base IC because most of the time that I attempted to use my Wii remotes, they would not have a charge. The design is nice but there are some major flaws that will not allow it to function properly.
