i have the Dreamgear 4-controller charger.
there are 2 things i hate about it.
(1) if i go about a week or 2 without using a controller, the charge is gone.
(2) if i have to resync, i can't, because the battery is connected to the cover.

does anyone have any suggestions between the other 2 available chargers?
Nyko and Energizer.

i saw a picture of the Nyko one on Amazon that shows the battery connected to the cover,
but i'm not sure if it's just laying with it.

any feedback would be much appreciated.

I Have the Nyko Charger and i have to say it works great . resycning isnt a problem as you can remove the cover without having to remove the battery to hit the sync button and it can hold a charge for more than 2 weeks, though i dont see why you wouldnt use the controller for more that 2 weeks. If you want pics i can upload them and you can decide.

Why don't you just leave them in there?!
even though it probably doesn't save too much,
i want to save as much electricity as possible.

that's the picture on Amazon, and it looks connected.
if it's not connected, i'm probably getting this,
but i don't see just the battery for sale, only the 2-controller dock.

don't use the sleeve get some of them silicone covers and you cut a an outline the size of the battery cover except for a bit at the bottom so you can flip it open. and also cut around where the m+ goes in. i got a wireless chuck that plugs in and it fits in perfectly with a little push.

Well I got the Energizer 4X one. It works great. You can leave them on it forever, has a status light to indicate charging or full. It came with all 4 bat packs that have access to the sync button through the bat covers (no need to remove cover to sync). Also the packs have magnets in them that move the controllers to the perfect spot on the pad for best charging.

And of course it works on all Wii mote setups.

    Yeah back in my late teens I used to mow about 10 lawns every two weeks for $35 a yard. It was stupid big yards I knew where paying a lot more than that to lawn care companies in a some what up tier gated community a few blocks from the area I lived. Was great getting $700 a month with no bills at the time and good excercise too, now I have bills so I never have any money to buy things.
