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.
Summary: I bought these with a gift card i received for my birthday a few years ago. When i went in and bought them i was told by the employee that they weren't a very good product as they tend to lose their charge quick and may in a rare case ruin my wiimote, but i bought them anyways as they were the only rechargeable battery pack for the Wii at the time and i thought they were a pretty good deal.
Pros: rechargable battery
Cons: stopped holding a charge after a week, not worth buying
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
Summary: I purchased the Nyko Wii Charging Station after buying one for my Mum. She raved about how she no longer needed to buy batteries for her Wii remote and how this was an excellent charging dock so I ordered one for myself. I ordered it for £14.99 from Amazon.co.uk The charging station or dock as some people call them (me included) is great if you are sick of having to buy batteries for your Wii Remote or when you pick up your remote and you find that it has run out of...
Pros: Charges 2 remotes at a time, charges quickly
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.
Nyko Wii Charge Station- Free yourself from buying batteries ...
27 October 2009
Summary: The nyko wii charge station is extremely handy if you don't want to be forever changing the batteries in your wii remote. It comes with the docking station itself, 2 rubber grip battery covers and two rechargable batteries. It is extremely simple to use, simply replace the wii remote battery cover and batteries with the nyko ones, plug in the docking station and sit your remote(s) into it. Within 1-2 hours, the remotes will be fully charged and ready to use.
Pros: Easy to use, charges two remotes, takes up minimum space
Cons: The wii remote grip needs to be removed before charging
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.
Summary: I first purchased the Wii as a present for my Mum and she certainly made good use of it. If im honest i expected to get most use of it but i barely got a chance. Obviously the Remote uses AA batteries normally to get power and these last for a decent length of time but in reality she played it that much that the need for rechargeable battery became quickly apparent.
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.

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.
