Keep all of your Wii Remotes charged and ready to go with Nyko’s Charge Station Quad for Wii. The Charge Station Quad includes 4 NiMH batteries, exclusively designed for the Wii Remote, and each providing up to 25 hours of play time. Every battery is easily recharged by placing the Wii Remote in the charging dock. The charging dock conveniently plugs into any standard wall outlet, allowing for rapid recharging of all four batteries simultaneously. The Charge Station includes 4 differently colored custom battery covers with contact pass-through points so you can charge the batteries while they are still in the remote. Each battery cover is also rubberized for superior grip during intense gaming sessions. The Charge Station Quad matches the décor and styling of the Wii, and is perfect for parties, tournaments and family game play sessions.
Top Customer Reviews
- Like any charge station, simply resting your remotes on the station leaves them charging for their next use.
- Replaces your original battery covers with ergonomic grip handles
- Each grip handle comes in a different color, allowing your Wii motes to remain uniformly white while each stands out from one another when looking at the grip handles. It's a much nicer looking solution than purchasing different colored Wii motes.
- Charges from an outlet, NOT your Wii. The remotes will still charge when the Wii is off.
- Quite simply the best looking, most practical, and least problematic of all the four remote charging stations currently on the market.
- As with any charger station, you will need to remove the remote's plastic safety sleeve in order to charge your remotes. Straps may also make it more difficult for the charge plates to connect properly.
- As with almost all charger stations, you will need to remove the Wii motion plus accessory in order to charge your remotes. The Wii Remote Quadruple Charge Station is the only charge station out there that will charge with the Wii motion plus accessory attached, but that product has its own set of drawbacks.
All in all, this is the best charger station out there and certainly the most convenient and eye-pleasing way to charge your Wii remotes, but if you are unwilling to part with the plastic protective sleeves and wrist straps, any charger station may prove to be too inconvenient for you. Personally, I removed mine on day one, and a full year of house guests and parties later, not a single Wii remote has ever been dropped or thrown. Ultimately, it's a decision each family must make for itself, but I think the protective sleeve and wrist strap were provided more for the sake of keeping Nintendo out of lawsuits and less a necessary set of precautions for the average gamer. They shouldn't hold you back from enjoying an otherwise flawless accessory to your Wii system.
All in all, this device is crap and I would not recommend anyone buy this unless you live in a vibration free area and have the precise hands of a surgeon.
This is comprised of 4 Nickel Metal Hydride batteries and 4 rubberized covers. The handstrap can still be attached while the unit is charging. There is an indicator light to notify you of the charging status and when the remote is charged.
Set up of the batteries is simple. Just remove your factory battery cover, place the battery into the unit and use the accompanying rubber covers. If you have the strap, just be sure that the charging light is on when the remote is placed into the docking station. Green indicates the remote is fully charged and blue indicates that the remote is charging. The base is stable and does not slide off of your entertainment center easily.
The rubberized grip is more comfortable than the plain OEM battery cover. Battery life is very good and is comparable to standard alkaline batteries. Charging from 'empty' requires about 8 hours (overnight). I typically keep the remotes in the docking station to ensure that they are always charged.
While charging the remotes, the light will be blue, but when the remotes are fully charged their corresponding light will be green. I have had a Wii remote last at least 8 hours before needing to be recharged, but I never wait for the battery to die before charging. So their lifespans are pretty decent.
If you're looking for a quad station, I would say this is one of the best ones to choose.
2.5 years later - two of the rechargeable battery packs stopped working for the controllers that were used the most. The other two battery packs work fine. So you might have to look into replacing them every 2-3 years if you use them frequently.
Charge Station still works but like any rechargeable batteries, over time they eventually lose their charge.
The charge lasts long too. The battery has never outlasted our playtime.
