4.0 out of 5 stars No hassle! June 10, 2009
By S. Bang
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've tried out many different kinds of chargers before. One on sale, one not on sale, etc. When I heard about this one, it intrigued me. Sure, $50 isn't cheap but I was sick of trying to match the contact point on the controller with the charger. And I didn't want to remove the rubber cover from my wiimote after it's attached to the new Wii Motionplus, which I was excited to buy. So I preordered this item. Two to be exact. One for me and one for my nephew. And I tried it out and this is what I found out.

The instruction booklet says it'll take 4 and a half hour to fully charge from the box. I started charging at 6:40pm. And at 1:20am, it wasn't done yet. Since I had to go to sleep, I had to remove it. Next day, I started charging at 6:40pm again. And at 12:30am, it wasn't done yet. So that was combined charge of 12:30 hours. The day after that it was done after 3 hours. So it took me over 15 hours to charge from the first time. I knew charging it without stopping will take less so took out my 2nd charger and started charging. That finished in about 10 hours. So I'm guessing not all charges are the same from the box. If the previous reviewer is correct then I have to estimate it'll take 6-12 hours to charge from getgo.

Then I started using it. 1st day I used it for exactly 2:50. Next day for another 2:40. Then on 3rd day, I noticed the charge was in red after few minutes. I stopped after using it for 90 minutes. So that was exactly 7 hours. But I was playing Broken Sword, which requires you to just press button here and there so 7 hours is probably the most you can get out of full charge. Heavily used games like MadWorld won't last more than 3-4 hours I say.

4.0 out of 5 stars batteries drain quickly--is mine defective? August 9, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
old info:
I don't know if mine was simply defective, or if it's a problem with the product itself (I'll be happy to edit this review accordingly if I find out it's just mine....)

I've owned this thing for only five days. I have yet to actually PLAY on my Wii since getting it.
See, I've charged the batteries on it three times now; each time, the charger showed that the batteries were charged (after 5 to 5-1/2 hours). This in spite of using the tight-fitting glove kits, as opposed to the wii jacket. The whole reason I got it was so I could use rechargeable batteries without having to peel off the glove.

Each time, the WII showed that the batteries were fully charged...at least if I checked right after charging them up.

And each time, if I went a day or more without using the remote AT ALL (not counting to check the Wii's assessment of the charge)...the batteries were completely drained!

I shouldn't have to charge the remote every morning just because I expect I MIGHT use the Wii later that day, and I shouldn't have to wait five hours to charge it when I DO want to use it!
If I can't figure out what's causing this problem soon, I'm probably just going to return the device, and go back to plain old Double A's. Even though the whole point of getting these things was to avoid having to constantly replace batteries....

Is this just a problem I'm experiencing, or has someone else noticed the same difficulties?

new info:
As it turned out, mine WAS defective; one side of the charger wasn't charging batteries like it should have been, even though the light turned green after the expected number of hours. The other side charged just fine. That MIGHT be the same problem that at least one other person has reported.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Like A Charm June 23, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this charger because I wanted to leave the rubber grips on the Wii remotes while charging them. I used the optional support to stand the charger upright but the contact between the remote and the charger was inconsistant and frustrating. I have since removed the support and the charger works flawlessly. There are reviews on the internet that mention the charger heating up but I have not found this to be true. My remotes are constantly on the charger when not in use and everything works perfectly. I highly recommend this product especially if you want to use the new Wii Motion Plus add-on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great, highly recomend June 9, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I heard about this months ago and decided to buy one when the charger I used stopped working. It works as advertised. There are no battery contacts on the charger so I wont have to worry about the contact to the charger rusting due to moisture or sweat. Item is a little smaller than most chargers out there right now. I was suprised how small it was. Took 10 seconds to set the stand up and plug it in. It can be stood up vertically or horizontally. The recargable batteries are screwed into covers for the wii remotes. I just put the covers on, put the soft wii jackets back on and set them on the charger. The batteries had a little power in them but I let them get fully charged before using them. Took about 6 hours for me. I have heard it can take 8 or 9. One thing I noticed after they were charged is that the remotes were hot but I didnt think it would affect the batteries at all. Id advise not charging them when your gone or asleep just in case. I like it and I would highly reccomend it to anyone purchasing one.
