MODEL- RVLAFW VENDOR- NINTENDO FEATURES- Wii Nunchuk Controller Contoured to perfectly fit a players hand, the Nunchuk controller builds on the simplicity of the Wii Remote controller and goes an extra step to meet the needs of gamers. The Nunchuk controller connects to the Wii Remote controller at its expansion port and is used in conjunction with the Wii Remote controller. The Nunchuk controller contains the same motion-sensing technology enabled in the Wii Remote controller but also includes an analog stick to assist in character movement. In several games, players will use the analog stick of the Nunchuk controller to move their characters and the Wii Remote controller to perform a specific action, whether thats throwing a pass in football or aiming a ranged weapon in an action game. Along with the analog stick, the motion-sensing Nunchuk controller also contains two buttons positioned for quick access. Because the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers are only relatively dependent on each other, players are free to hold them in whichever hand is most comfortable. The ambidextrous nature of the Wii controllers grants accessibility seldom seen in game controllers. MANUFACTURER WARRANTY:andnbsp;andnbsp;12 Months
The Wii Nunchuk controller is a secondary controller that adds even more innovation to the next generation of gaming, and does it all with less physical movement.
Used in conjunction with the standard Wii remote, certain games need the Nunchuk controller for additional control options. Contoured perfectly to fit a player's hand,
The Wii Nunchuk (left) connects directly to the Wii remote. View larger.
Many games will allow you to control your character's movement with the Nunchuk in your left hand, while your right hand is free to execute the action movements with the Wii Remote. For example, the Nunchuk is particularly useful for games like Wii Boxing. You can use the Nunchuk to punch with your weaker hand, while you use the Wii remote to punch and jab with your predominant hand.
Take the fun to the next level with two-handed control of your games. View larger.
Because the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers are only relatively dependent on each other, players are free to hold them in whichever hand is most comfortable. Perfectly suitable for either right or left-hand use, the Wii Nunchuk controller grants accessibility not often seen in previous game controllers.
Also, the Nunchuk controller doesn't need its own power--it plugs into the Wii Remote controller when it's in use. So there's no need to worry about charging or replacing expensive batteries.
Adding a Nunchuk to your Wii system will definitely help you open the doors to the next level of gaming, and seriously step up performance. Just be careful not to knock out your significant other, or bruise the dog, severely, while using one, or two Nunchuk controllers.

Kids will master the control in about 5 seconds, adults may never figure it out. I guess it could teach kids to be ambidextrous, which is probably good.
The Nunchuk controller requires the standard Wii or Wii plus controller to work.
The nearly 3 foot cable coming from the Nunchuk is inserted into the Wii controller.
Make sure you have enough Wii controllers before you buy more Nunchuks as they will not work on their own.
No Batteries are required for the Wii Nunchuk, it is powered by the Wii controller.
The Nunchuk has a thumb toggle and 2 push buttons.
There is no leash for the Nunchuk, so be careful when slinging it around.
The shape is contoured and the size seems to work for small children and adults.
The top is glossy and the bottom is textured for grip.
Build quality is adequate, I am not sure why they are around $20 each.
Their are other options that you can consider similar to the classic style controllers older generations of gamer are used to. They also require a standard Wii controller to plug into.
As a child of the late 70's and the 80's... I am starting to feel like I am missing the tech curve and the reasoning in packaging controllers with systems.
I adapted from Atari 2600 (Still works 30+ years later), to Nintendo (Still works 25+ year later), to Playstation (Still works), to Playstation2 (Still works), and now the Wii.
Why do I need 2 controllers, one for each hand? 30 years of 1 controller, why now do we need two controllers?
Remember when you were a kid and your Atari and Nintendo came with 2 controllers for 2 players... now you get 1 set of controllers for 4 players.
So, the console with 1 controller and 1 nunchuk is $149.
Then controller $30 each, nunchuck $20 each, Steering wheel $10 each... times 3.
You would need to spend an additional $180 for all four players to play.
So after nearly $350 everyone can play the one game the system comes with...
When I got them, I was concerned that they weren't genuine since I expected them to be manufactured by Nintendo. I inspected one and it looked identical to the one that came with the system (didn't compare the cord length), but I figure it is easy enough to copy the few details on the device. Since these are made by BD&A (I forget the exact name, something Deutch & Associates), I wondered if the Nintendo Genuine logo was a counterfeit. I called Nintendo at 9pm on a Sunday night, and amazingly someone answered! To my surprise, she was quite knowledgeable and helped me determine that the BD&A nunchucks have in fact been certified. She told me that they spend a lot of time testing these and warned against non-certified ones, especially those who steal power from the remote. Since I have had nothing but bad luck with 3rd party controllers in the past, that was preaching to the choir.
Anyways, I thought I would share my findings here. If you get one with the blue skin and it is made by BD&A, it is in fact a nintendo certified controller. Happy gaming!
Also, there are cheaper nunchucks on here that are knock offs (in other words, Nintendo did not make them. A third party did). After my experience with knock offs I recommend you ALWAYS buy Nintendo brand products. Even though it may appear to be exactly as the original, save your money and always buy the original if you want your product to function the way it should and last a few years, rather than a few hours. I purchased mine "used" and it works as if it were brand new. This goes to show that when Nintendo themselves makes a product, you can guarantee it will last a long time. I myself would purchase a used Nintendo product, over a new third party knock off any day because I have had my experience once with that already. I learned from that mistake.
Overall, if you are looking for a black nunchuck, then purchase this one!

The product itself is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand comfortably, and has a thumb operated joysick on the top and two buttons at the front, where you place your index and middle fingers respectively. Your other two fingers curl underneath the curved underside of the Nunchuk in a "trigger" position. The Nunchuk is very lightweight and comfortable to hold in the hand. There is a wire running from the bottom of the Nunchuk which has a connector at the end that slots into the bottom of the Wii remote. The wire can be a bit awkward and get in your way during some games, although it is possible to get wireless Nunchuks. The Nunchuk itself does not need any batteries, as it is powered by the Wii remote, which takes two AA batteries. The Nunchuk can be used in either hand during gameplay, though if you are right handed, you would usually hold the Nunchuk in your left hand.
The Nunchuk is used in many different ways in gaming on the Wii. One of the main games that we play on our Wii is Donkey Kong Jet Race, which is a very simple kids racing game in which you propel yourself along by frantically "drumming" the remote and Nunchuk alternately. As we play this game so often, we have 3 remotes and 3 Nunchuks so that we can race each other, as there is no way to play the game without the Nunchuk attatchment. In some games, the Nunchuk is optional, such as Mario and Sonic at the Olympic (and winter) games. The events, such as running can be played by waving the remote up and down, but if you attatch the Nunchuk you get a more realistic running action which involves waving the two controllers alternately.
In the Fifa football games, you can also play with or without the attatchment, though the Nunchuk adds a lot to the gameplay by enabling you to control your players more effectively. In many shooting games, you can move around using the joystick on the Nunchuk and use the remote as a gun, or use the two controllers like boxing gloves in games like Wii fit and Wii sports.
We tend to use our Nunchuk controllers quite a lot when we play on the Wii, but have found the odd problem, such as getting tangled up in the wires! Another problem is if you start a game with the analog stick not in the central neutral position. This can cause the controls to be unresponsive when you start the game. We have had our controllers for nearly two years now, and they are showing little sign of wear and tear, apart from one of them, which can be unreliable at times. I have put a sticker on it to distinguish it from my two good Nunchuks.
In conclusion, if you want to get the most out of the Wii, the Nunchuk is pretty essential, as sooner or later you are going to encounter a game which requires it to be connected. It is a shame that Nintendo do not sell the remotes and Nunchuks together in packs, as you really need to buy both together to get the best gaming experience. The one that comes included with the Wii is white, but you can buy "skins" in a variety of designs and colours to personalise your nunchuk to your own taste.
It's not particularly complex, as you can see in the picture. It's comprised of an analog stick, often used for basic motion, two buttons, and finally a built-in 'three-axis motion sensor' similar to the one in your Wiimote. It plugs in directly to your Wiimote and uses that to function, so no extra batteries or anything.
Overall definitely a must have if you're going to play some of the bigger Wii titles.
To address the last reviewers posts..I find myself rather confused by what your trying to say! I accept that you are disabled and I understand your frustration. I'm pretty sure that nintendo where aiming this at the majority market. thats not to say if you have a disability the Wii and controlers are off limits..Its just if you suffer from Muscular Dystrophy...then the games, rather than the controllers are where your problem lies! Some of the games require SERIOUS movement at high speeds.
I ache from simulated boxing fights and what not...I havnt had this much excerise in years!
now..Like the last reviewer...If you dont fancy moving around much or cant..then there are 2, and only 2 alternatives avalible to you!
1) buy a classic controller for your Wii. this works with a large range of games..though not all so make sure you check the title supports it first (all Wiiconnect24 games will..infact a classic contoler is must for that)
2) Dont buy a Wii. its that simple. you need space to play the Wii in and you need to move lots for a lot of title..if its not your cup of tea..STAY AWAY!
The nunchuk itself requires no set-up, is of sturdy plastic, and well manufactured. Worth the money for extra gaming oppurtunties.
The basic games package can be played without these extras, but not the more advanced games. The controllers are easy to set up and work very well; they are amazingly responsive to every move. Highly recommended for all ages.
I bought them from Amazon because they offered a better deal than I could find in any high street shop.
