I recently bought an extra Wii remote on eBay and I'm almost certain it's a cheap Chinese fake. However, the differences are subtle and I'm wondering if it's possible that this is just a newer model, as he advertised it as a Japanese import. Detailed writeup and comparison pictures here. It works but my main concern is that it doesn't work with my rechargeable battery packs. Then I thought that since they're third party hardware there could be other reasons they're not working with this model, which has me second-guessing my initial judgment. The build still looks cheap in some areas so I'm leaning towards fake, but I'd like some outside input. Is it a fake or just a newer/Japanese model with different plastics that doesn't work with my battery packs for some reason?
