which is the best peripheral for re-charing the wiimote?
I Got this wii stand that has 2 wiimote charging slots and the battery packs ofr it for $25 at EB, but it was half price when i got it
It has blue neon like lamp around it too
whats the brand?
and how long do the re-charges last for?
i think about an hour, but it may be more, as i dont use it for that long
its a powerwave accsessory
Edit: Its like this one
only an hour?
... that isn't very good.
i've gotten maybe 20hrs out of the batteries that came with my wii and it's only just dropped to 2/4 full.
I'm not really sure. Its probably more, but i use my wii for an hour at most at one time, and then put them back in the charger, so i dont really know how long
*goes to look for the box*
I am using USBCell batteries which I can charge using my Wii.
I do have 2 USB-kabels to ensure both batteries can be charged at the same time. The two USB-ports on the Wii are close together
look at http://www.usbcell.com . Delivery to my country is free.
I've had this for about a month now. Works great.
I haven't gone long enough between chargings to actually wear out the battery though.
I use an Energizer 15-minute charger and energizer batteries (2500mAh) and they work great!
batteries stay alive for about a couple of weeks for me and forgetting to charge isn't really a problem
I've been using Eneloop batteries since I bought the Wii on release. I also use them for xbox 360 now too. I'd say they last at least 20-30 hours, especially if you play that much within a week. They run about 2.50 a pop for 2000mA plus ~10 for the charger. You can get AAA's too. They charge pretty quickly and hold a charge better than most rechargable AA's.
I use this one. It holds a pretty good charge. After an hour or so, it usually drops one bar of battery. Only problem is, it sometimes doesn't align the charging conections when the straps are still on the wii-motes.
If you want longevity for battery power http://www.emveegaming.com has one that is rated at 3800mah. I personally have two on both my remotes and I get around 30-40 hours on them with Nunchuck use.
I use http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002IWC9...rd_i=B00012F7HS
(Sony BCG-34HE4 Super-Quick Worldwide Battery Charger)
Comes with 4 NiHM rechargeable batteries which is really the only kind you should use in a Wiimote, get a LOT of playtime with these, and no clunky add-ons (that could potentially fry your wiimote) required.
Been using the Joytech powerstation for a while now;
I'm pretty happy with it eventhough it costs around 30/35 euro's here (which means prolly 35 dollars in the US and A). Batteries last pretty long and are Ni-MH.
personally i would recomend just getting recharchagable energizers and a charger. its a bit more work but those batteries last super long
I use sanyo 2700 Nimh and it works great used 20 hrs straight and just reduce by 1 bar in the wii menu
I'm interested in those stand/chargers too. Does anybody know how good any of the Dealextreme ones are?
I use Joytech Wii Power Station and the batteries last for ages without having to recharge them. Works like a dream.
