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 batteries can rack up...
  • 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 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.
