So far, so good. A few notes:

1. Installation is easy. Easier than putting in new AA batteries. It can only go in one way and it's relatively sturdy, so even if you try to put it in the wrong way, you'll probably not break it. You could if you really try, of course, but someone that determined is going to break it anyway. Once installed there's no real reason to take it out again until it eventually dies (as all batteries, mortals and love affairs must) so it shouldn't have a lot of wear & tear problems.

2. Other reviewers have said it didn't hold a charge very long, but I've used mine for 3+ hours at a session without recharging and had no problem. Charging it up did take a while, though. I wonder, did they let it fully charge before trying it? Sometimes the quality control of battery manufacturers can be a bit dicey, so it might be one or both of those things. IMO, given the price of this thing, it's worth rolling the dice on it. AA batteries can be comparably expensive unless you buy in bulk or steal them from the office.

3. Charging is easy: just plug the thing in. The Wii only has two USB ports, which is fine for most users. You can plug this thing into any USB port, though, so if you have a PC with a USB port that charges (sometimes they don't charge electronic devices all that well--the vagaries of USB ports are many...) an AC adapter or some other means you could use that and then you wouldn't have to unplug or Rockstar or whatever device. Once charged the LED turns from red to green.

My boyfriend was upset that I bought an off brand product for our Wii Fit Board. But for $5 including shipping I couldn't resist! Although it didn't come with any instructional booklet to tell me how to charge it, it was still worth the money. When you charge it, turn it on. Charge it for 8 to 12 hours when it dies. If you know this you will be fine!

Like many others, I received this item quickly, but with no instructions for use or invoice for return. It does not hold a charge and I have left it plugged in waiting for it to charge for 16 hours. When disconnected, the balance board immediately powers down and will not power back on. When I plug the charger back in, light is still red, indicating that there is no charge. Bad news bears.

I have absolutely no complaints on this item. It holds a charge for a very long time. I charged it over a week ago, use my board for an hour a day and it still has pretty much a full charge. Definitely worth the money! I don't know if it makes a difference, but when I'm done with the board, I make sure to shut the pack off (the on/off switch is another option I like also)

I received this as a gift...was very excited, as I always forget batteries for my balance board.

Like other reviewers, no instructions. Also, the box was flimsy and banged up (not that I think that's the reason it doesn't work).

As a fairly analytic person, I tried the following to charge this contraption:
1. Plugging the USB into my computer without it being in the board (for 24 hours)...didn't work.
2. The same, but it being in the board...didn't work.
3. Plugging the USB into a brand new wall phone charger without it being in the board (for 24 hours)...didn't work.
4. The same, but it being in the board...didn't work.
5. Plugging the USB into my old Amazon Kindle charger...well, you get the idea...

This is a piece of junk, save your money and invest in rechargeable batteries or a bulk pack of cheap batteries. At least you'll be able to use your balance board.

If I could return, I absolutely would. I wish it worked...it's a great idea, just poor execution.

EDIT - after looking at the positive reviews, I thought maybe I missed something. My charger looks nothing like the charger in the pictures shown. There's no on/off switch on mine, nor does it stick out. It's flush to the machine. I forgot about the USB in the Wii itself, so I'm trying that as a last ditch effort while I wait for Amazon to send me some actual batteries.

As another reviewer has stated, this item is different from what's pictured. That isn't the problem. The problem is this doesn't work. I fully charged it, put it in the Wii Fit (which is a nice fit) but the Wii Fit keeps turning off after only a few seconds. I've tried recharging, but same results. Might just be a faulty unit, but for the price it's not worth the money to return it.

The charge doesnt last very long. A red light comes on when you plug it into your computer to charge but you never know when it is fully charged. No instructions. Dissapointed in this product

First of all I didn't get the one pictured, the one with an on/off switch. The one I got does not work and it does not have an on/off switch. I charged it over night in the Wii's USB port on the back. Put it in this morning and it only worked for 20 minutes. I also treid charging it in the computers USB and still no go. I guess they do not make a good rechargeable battery pack for the Wii Fit. :( It's pretty cheap but don't waste your money on this one. The seller did give me a refund with no problems.
