    I move my Wii around a lot, it's an easy to carry around system but for some reason that sensor is kind of troublesome for me I always think the wire will snap or something and it's just annoying.
    So, I was thinking of maybe getting one of them wireless sensors, but how good are they, do they have any issues hows the battery life? Do they have a decent battery life of at least 10-15 hours?

    i have one, i too move my Wii around alot, rarely do i use it at my own house, the wireless one is sorta useful but i find im often robbing its battiery when one of the wiimotes die. now that i know better i would rather buy a second wired bar.

    secondly, you can use 2 candles on the top of your tv in a pinch i too have tryed it, it dose work. i found one of many vids that show it ( and yes they should be put on top of the set not infront of the screen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1vQFchFr_Q...feature=related

    yeah i know about the candles, but I'm not too keen on having candles on top of my TV like that lol.
    It's fire dude, I dun mess with fire and stuff even if it's just candles.

    because they send out IR light, and the sensor bar does the same

    yeah wireless sensorbar works fine by me.
    Only (small) issue is that the batteries die slowly so if you don't replace them you have to stand closer and closer and closer to the sensor till it finaly dies

    that is just a stupid idea. not only is it dangerous but you'll get wax everywhere too.

    I got a wireless bar because I have a cat who likes to sleep behind the TV and knocks the cord from the sensor, I always found it on the floor in the mornings. But beyond that, I've found its alot easier to move it around, I would difenately recommend it.
