    Anyone heard of a USB charger for the Wiimote batteries?

    http://gametool.jp/?pid=4025217 (japanese)

    Look at the link above (japanese) it seems like batteries are include, but it does not say what kind of batteries. regular rechargable AA, or some special lithium or something else... also, the Wii has two USB port,... I wonder if we can plug the wiimotes into the Wii directly while the Wii is on sleep. that would be sweet.

    any opinion or other source of information on this device?

    thanks

    That would be awesome, I get through a pair of AAs every couple of weeks, why weren't they rechargable in the first place [​IMG]

    To the above guy, why not just buy two AA rechargeable ones and that's it?

    I have the joytech charger station from amazon UK. It uses a through cable to power it... so it has more power than USB yet still doesnt take up an extra socket or anything =) it looks cool and keeps the wiimotes always ready to use without having to worry about taking the batteries out to charge them!
