Wished it worked, but absolutely no charge...do not buy...buyer beware.,
This review is from: Insten Rechargeable Battery/Charger Compatible With Wii Fit Balance Board (Video Game)
I received this as a gift...was very excited, as I always forget batteries for my balance board.
Like other reviewers, no instructions. Also, the box was flimsy and banged up (not that I think that's the reason it doesn't work).
As a fairly analytic person, I tried the following to charge this contraption:
1. Plugging the USB into my computer without it being in the board (for 24 hours)...didn't work.
2. The same, but it being in the board...didn't work.
3. Plugging the USB into a brand new wall phone charger without it being in the board (for 24 hours)...didn't work.
4. The same, but it being in the board...didn't work.
5. Plugging the USB into my old Amazon Kindle charger...well, you get the idea...
This is a piece of junk, save your money and invest in rechargeable batteries or a bulk pack of cheap batteries. At least you'll be able to use your balance board.
If I could return, I absolutely would. I wish it worked...it's a great idea, just poor execution.
EDIT - after looking at the positive reviews, I thought maybe I missed something. My charger looks nothing like the charger in the pictures shown. There's no on/off switch on mine, nor does it stick out. It's flush to the machine. I forgot about the USB in the Wii itself, so I'm trying that as a last ditch effort while I wait for Amazon to send me some actual batteries.
