    In percentage? Is there an application or would it be possible to make an application that would show the percentage of battery charge left on a wii remote? Rather than using the wii menu 4 bar? I'd rather have an app that could give me exact percentages of battery left.

    EDIT: DARN wrong section I saw homebrew and psoted without thinking. Move please.

    Sorry but the wii remotes are probably not able to do taht. It just measures how much energy is left and just shows the bars accordingly. Even if it was made, you would have to load a seperate application to tell you rather than just hitting the "home" button.

    Yeah, he's right. The Wii remote is only designed to read four energy levels.

    you're wrong
    the remote returns a numeric value representing the available battery charge
    you have to do some simple math to turn that number into a 1 to 4 result for displaying bars
    displaying a percentage is actually a lot easier
    just look at WPAD_BatteryLevel()
