Tired of replacing batteries in your remote? Well, I think every Wii owner is and now we may finally have a solution. IGN gives this new charging dock a test out with some good results.
"Nyko states that a single empty battery will recharge in 1.5 to 2 hours, while two empty Wiimotes will require 3.5 to 4 hours. Our review units arrived close to fully charged and we had green lights across the board after about 30-minutes of charging."
"The only downside to the Charge Station is the fact that the Wiimote straps must dangle to either side of the cradle, marring what would otherwise be a rather statuesque display of Wiimotes in recline."
"Nyko's Charge Station for the Wii is the first rechargeable solution for the battery hungry Wiimotes, and now that we have some we're glad we won't have to burn through quite as many AAs. Though it might take a little while to recoup the $29.99 MSRP of the Charge Station via savings in batteries, the convenience of being able to count on fully charged Wiimotes is considerable, and limiting the number of used batteries you send to the landfill gives you good environmental karma. The Charge Station should be available at retail by the end of Q1."
