Great product with only one problem

Jamie Marchant, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great way to charge 2 WiiMotes(Wii Remotes). Pros: Charge 2 WiiMotes and esaly convert you WiiMotes to rechargeable battires. Cons: Sometimes it's hard to plug the WiiMotes correctly(if there are incorrectly placed the won't charge). NOTES: I bought a second one of these after revering the first one for Christmas a few years ago. The unit costs less then a set of too battreis.

You'll never have to buy batteries for your Wiimotes again!

  • Excerpt: "The one thing that was always going to be an issue with wireless controllers was the power supply. If you have a wired connection, then the power can be channelled through in this way, but wireless controller inevitably involve using batteries. Regular Wii controllers, being thrashed around, waved around and used extensively as the console has some great games, means that these batteries can get drained quite quickly, and the costs of replacing the ...
  • Pros: Easy charging to maintain play time
  • Cons: Charging doesn't work quite so well any more, but I think that's more our fault than a design one

Bad experience

B. Manders "3D Artist", Amazon
10 August 2010
  • Summary: I personally had a bad experience with this product. When we bought it, it worked great for a week. We found it inconvenient to keep taking off the covers every time we wanted to charge the remotes, but that was nothing we couldn't deal with. After about a week, one of the charging slots stopped working. We were still okay with it, because even though we had two main wii players in the house, the one charging was enough for us.

Could be better...

L. Chow "geekette", Amazon

  • Summary: I find the connection between the charger and the remote is weak. It does not start to charge straight away when I put the Wii controller in the "Charge Station". I always have to spend 5 minutes jiggling it into place until the blue light comes on. Even then, sometimes it loses it's connection and it just sits there uncharged, which is annoying when I want to play with it again and there's no battery. But when it works, at least I save a million AA batteries.

Good performance, happy with my purchase

  • Summary: This charging station works well, even if the blue charging light is just a bit bright. (I can see my way through a dark room when I turn off the television set. *chuckle*) Charging is quick, and the packs last a good long time. You can't really use the remote 'wrapper' with it, but I never liked those in the first place. My only concern at this point is that I haven't found a Canadian retailer selling the battery packs individually.

Very handy

Mrs. Tammy L. B. Oberlin "Maple Leaf Mom", Amazon
17 July 2009
  • Summary: This is a great investment over buying a ga-jillion AA batteries over the years. You do have to take the jackets off the wii-motes before using it, but it's worth it. Doesn't take long to charge either.
