    Looks pretty stable to me, charge electronics read pretty intelligent and safe. The only thing that could happen that would affect your Wii is if it falls out of its socket. I don't see any other gameplay breaking possibility, and especially none for bricking (how would the even work?).
    Does it have its own power supply or plugs it into Wii USB? That could lead to a problem if it sucks to much power.

    it uses the wii power supply and you have to plug the wii in the stand so the power passes through the stand

    Risk? Its a stand that charges remote batteries.

    You have no risk here unless you chuck water over the thing whilst plugged in or trip over the sheer bulkiness of it.

    The only risk depends on if the stand uses the original Wii Power brick and when under full load (charging two WiiMotes and powering the Wii) it surpasses the maximum load capacity of the Wii's Power brick.

    The sad thing is there probably is no way to tell what maximum current the unit requires over the Wii alone and what the safety margin the Wii's power brick is designed with. No documentation. In the best case, you probably will have a slightly warmer power brick. In worst case you might have to replace the power brick over time. There is always an odd case that the device is utter crap and will short out, but usually such products get outed out in the comments by unlucky purchasers.
