For starters, the functionality of the unit is good. It (mine) came with one rechargeable battery, and two "backs" for your wiimote (one black & one white), so that it will match your controller. That was a nice touch, since I had decided to trade-in my original rechargeable battery unit since it was white, and I have a black wii (currently black hardware is more common, but not when the black wii system was first released in US).
A small gripe, or possible I got screwed; The instructions state that the unit comes with two batteries (as in, two sets of rechargeable batteries). The plastic holding the accessories in the box although only has space for one battery, so I'm assuming that was a typo, or a removed idea.
Although I might have been screwed - the manual also says that the battery was in a plastic wrap, where as mine was not (my box was "new / sealed").
The good about this, is that its a very clever, very unique, and very cool design for a remote charger. If you've played the game, you will be very fond of this item. The glowing face changes color depending if the remote is in need of charge, or if its full. The lights are very impressive, and when its the only light on in the room, the Blot's texture and Mickeys face all have a very eerie look to it.
Somewhere between good & bad is the fact that this recharger unit is designed for one single remote. Good for me, as I don't care for many party games, and rarely even keep batteries in my 2nd remote. Bad for those who have a lot of wii party games & rely on more than one remote often.Read more ›
It took longer than we planned for the remodeling, but I kept this box on display because it looks pretty nice, even in the box. I was finally only able to unbox it and install it today. That's when I discovered it won't power on.
The power cord that connects to this charger plugs in underneat, on the bottom. When I plugged it in, I thought it felt a little loose. I installed the special batter pack in my wiimote, put it in the charger, and nothing happened. I tried several different wiimotes, but no luck. After inspecting the power port more closely on the charger, I could see that the internal power plug was loose and pulled away from the opening.
In fact, if you gently shake the charger, you can hear the power plug rattling around loosely.
Since the item has been in my posession (unopened) for so long, I can't exchange it at Amazon. There's no warranty that I can find (the manual references a warranty but I can't find it). I can't even fix it myself without damaging the unit because there's no screws, it's all vinyl pieces glued together.
All and all, a very disappointing experience. I really did want this to work, :(
I did contact Amazon, who responded immediately, letting me know that I could return it with shipping paid, so at least I'm not stuck with a broken item or paying return shipping...
As for the product itself, it seems to be very fragile, and the Wii plate covers are difficult to click into place as if they don't fit right. The instructions it came with are very unclear about how it works.
The charger itself works great. The battery has to charge for about four hours before you use it, but that's the same for most chargers. It comes with a black and a white battery cover so that you can use it with a black or a white wii remote.
The only down side is that it only comes with one battery pack and only has room for one remote. So you can only charge one remote at a time, and unless you buy another battery pack you can't charge another remote while using one.
If you just want a remote charger I would recommend getting a different one with two or more charging spots.
Overall this is a beautiful piece of art that also functions as a remote charger. If you are a fan of Epic Mickey consider getting it.
