Color: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Usually I love Amazons basics. But this product does not live up to their usual standards.

It does what it says it will do, keeps the rechargeable batteries charged. But, I would suggest purchasing a few good sets of rechargeable batteries (like Eneloop) and a charger over buying this product. The reasons I think rechargeable batteries would be a better solution are:

It is finicky about getting the connection made, the wrist strap often gets in the way.

You are supposed to take them out after they are charged. This is a pain. A real pain.

You cannot link the remote with the Wii (for example, my son used his remote at a friends house) because you cannot have the battery pack in and also push the button that links them. He had to get some regular batteries and put them in in order to reset the link.

You cannot charge them with silicone covers on the remotes.

Only charges when the Wii is on.

The glowing light is distracting when watching TV, and usually the Wii is near the TV.

Color: White Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
In the past, I used to use a Nyko Wii Dual Station Charger that would run via plugging it into your outlet. And since getting it back in 2007, one battery refuses to charge and one works. Even though you put it in, it says its charging but it doesn't work. So, I have to admit...I have become bitter towards dual station chargers and decided to go with rechargeable Eneloops.

But here were are in 2011, nearly five years later and reviewing another dual charger. I was surprised to find out that Amazon has its own line of products for the Wii via AmazonBasics.

I. UNPACKING

For the AmazonBasics Dual Charge Station, you get the station, two rechargeable batteries and a USB plug-in. This is my first time using a rechargeable station via USB and definitely prefer that over a wall wart (AC plug-in).

My Nyko chargers were a bit heavier, this one is lighter and I don't want to know what would happen if it was dropped on a hard surface as it seems quite light.

II. RECHARGING

After a full day of the kids playing and effectively powering down the battery, it was time to recharge. Put them in and blue docking lights mean that it's charging, green means they are fully charged.

One thing that caught my attention was that "Charging the batteries for more than 8 hours is not recommended as it could damage the batteries. For me, this is a first. It made me wonder if that is what killed my XBOX360 or original Wii batteries but I am the type of person who have left batteries in a dock while I slept overnight and at times, just forgot I had something recharging.

So, I know that this may be problematic for some (or a lot of) people.

I purchased this item in mid-December last year. One of the batteries had to be 'handled' just so when placing on the dock to charge and after less than two months refused to charge at all. Also, I noticed that the batteries tended to be overly snug getting into the remotes and required a lot of pressure to get in, as opposed to the Nykko system I just purchased today to replace this item. I know the reviews were mixed before I purchased this item, but I put a lot of trust into Amazon, and this is one of the few times I have been disappointed.

These worked ok at first ... I have rechargeable energizers that last longer and Do not fry the wii plus remotes as these ones did after one month of use... I would not recommend these in any case maybe I got a bad set but now I am out a wii mote and a wii motion plus ... and no they were not left on the charger for extended periods ... its pretty simple you put them on and the light stays blue until fully charged then turns green

I normally love Amazon Basics, but this one was a disappointment. First, we had to take the silicone covers off and the little square Wii motion sensitivity sensors on the bottom to get these to recharge. This was a really big pain and I was afraid I we were going to lose the accessories. The remotes are a little wobbly in the charging station and you have to make sure the wrist strap fits in the little notch in the back to make them a bit more secure.

The other thing that drove us a bit crazy was the fact that it was a USB attachment into the Wii station instead of using its own power cord. So, it was always glowing right in front of the TV. If your Wii is turned off, then it will not charge the remotes. It has to be at least turned on (green light showing on Wii) or in the standby (yellow light showing on the Wii) position.

We have always just used batteries, so we were hopeful this charging station would work well. However, I think we will go back to using our regular batteries. Maybe if we were true gamers and played all the time, I would think twice, but right now we only replace the batteries in the four chargers ever couple of months and maybe only play the Wii a couple times during the week.

UPDATE: I will now be buying this one for a second time (though it will actually be the third one we get). It keeps crapping out (the first one crapped out in less than 90 days and Amazon quickly and generously replaced it). The black one, however, has NOT needed replacing (going on two years now). I guess white plastic needs some sort of special handling ...

(ORIGINAL: This is an excellent and well-made product! I brought one in black and it worked so well, I had to buy this other for the white Wii. )
