    So for about a month now i've been using the crap batterie packs that you get on ebay and those SUCK and only lasted about an hour and I had enough of it so I went and bought these new batteries called eneloop from Sanyo that apparently have both the qualities of Alkaline and Ni-MH. So far they are great going strong 9 hours and still has four bars .They don't come with a chager but any Ni-MH charger should work they don't take long to charge either so if you want a pack go down to Circuit City or look on Amazon.

    Well I use the ones that snap in the back and have batteries fit into the WiiMote and come with a recharge center that glows blue (I turn it off often cause of the blue glow at night... = =[​IMG]

    Nyko charge station... I can play for a good 8-9 hours before I get down to 3 bars, but it drops quickly after that... I also keep my wiimotes in the charger when I'm not using them.

    Eneloops are the best rechargeable batteries.

    Cheap Costco brand batteries 20 battery brick for 7 bucks, 2 batteries last me about 12-14 hours. LOL! Toss out the batteries and go on to the next pair. That's 60-80 hours per remote for 7 bucks, not to shabby, might pick up the recharger once the brick runs out, but that will be a while yet. [​IMG]

    I'm using Rayovac's hybrid Nickel Cadmium batteries... They take a while to charge but take a loooong time to run down... They're not that expensive and they can be charged in any Ni-Cad charger!

    Maybe if I can get a ride to best buy or something, but if i can find a nice deal online i'll just order them.
    All of them have $5-7 shipping, which is half the cost of the batteries themselves.

    DealExtreme has them for $16.50 but I'd rather go to circuit city and buy them for $7
