    I got the Energizer brand at Walmart for $35, a little expensive. Compared to the batteries I used before (Rayovac) these new batteries die VERY fast. 3+ hours of CoD:WaW gave me 1 bar of juice. Rayovac can last me a whole week of hardcore gaming.

    Yea invest the money in rechargeable batteries. I've been useing about 20 batteries for over a year in all my electronics, Wiimotes, 360 controllers, Digital camera, TV remotes, PC mouse/keyboard ect. Never have to worry about running out.

    I made the mistake of buying specialized rechargeable batteries for my XBOX 360 (2 controllers) and now I can't use those any where else.

    Go buy some rechargeable AA batteries (Energizer and Duracell) work fine along with the included adapter (buy a set with the adapter). Besides, the Wiimote will last for a very long regardless of the types of batteries you have.

    I've wanted to get a wiimote charging station for awhile now but since most of you recommend just sticking with rechargeable batteries, I'll just do that. I've been using rechargeable ones for awhile now but I've had to take the batteries out and put them in my digital camera in order to charge them, lol. Was hoping a wiimote charging station could simplify it for me.

    There you have it! The advantage of having normal rechargable batteries. Universally accepted by other electronic devices that require AA batteries. [​IMG]
