    They say use only Alkaline batteries because of the voltage output (1.5V) whereas rechargables only put out 1.2V which could result in irregular or incorrect Wiimote behavior. It's bollocks though, because if you're only supposed to use non-rechargables, you'll be buying batteries every freaking week!

    They say you'll get 20 hours of use out of a pair of AAs, but when you think about it really is not that much time, given you play for let's just say 3-4 hours a day, you'll have used up your batteries in about a week.

    I can't help but wonder why Nintendo didn't consider the battery dilemma we'd all face... Why couldn't they do something like what they did with the DS, where it has it's own proprietry battery design built for the intents and purposes of the device, not to mention being RECHARGABLE. The DS also had docking stations available. I sure hope the Wii follows suite.

    I use rechargeable batteries and they work fine. As for getting a wiimote with a docking station to charge it...Nintendo needs to jump on that!!!

    Well, i got one of those Wiimote gloves that are made of rubber and let me say that they are a pain to pull off the controller. So when I have to change the batteries, ive got to carefully take off the glove without ripping it. So a rechargeable wiimote which recharges the batteries from the nunchuck hole would be perfect for me.

    uhh... I posted a link above to an auction on eBay where you get 4 Duracell rechargeables and a recharger for $18.50 delivered. You definitely don't have to spend the sort of money you're talking about to get decent rechargeable batteries.

    Playing:
    Zelda: TP
    Splinter Cell: Double Agent
    Resident Evil 4

    Looking forward to:
    Metroid Prime 3
    Guitar Hero 3

    Well thats what they are called though. Its not an actual 5 finger glove, but a rubber casing. I have no idea why they're called gloves but thats what theyre advertised as. http://www.ebgames.com/product.asp?product_id=802507

    I know about this for my digital photography. the cameras use up loads of power really quick, so I have to look around for high power cheap rechargables.

    I use high powered rechargables 1.2v for everything except the clocks on the walls. Saves having to recharge every few days.

    nearly all of non-rechargable batteries that say are high powered or heavy duty are about 1.4 to 1.8 amps (some actually put there ampage on the side - like 1800 or 1400 - and is sometimes in their code)

    I'm sorry, I know this is gettin a bit geeky but please bare with me on this...

    Ni-MH (nickel metal hydride) is very heavy duty up to 3 times more power than NiCd (Nickel Cadium - think thats what it is - not sure). U can get around 2700mHa (I think thats how its written???) from NiMH or 2.7 amps... the higher the ampage the longer the batteries will last. this is why most really high power rechargables are Ni-MH. But, the problem then is that you only get 1.2volts out of rechargables. the extra 0.3volts is basically taken care of with the really high ampage.

    And you get about 1000 charges (supposedly) average with rechargables.

    Your right tho. it is bollocks about buying batteries every week.

    Hope it helps?

    This link ** http://www.tantronics.co.uk/acatalog...aa_2700x4.html ** is just to show you what I'm on about.

    And some more crap about it so you can become a professor or geek about the subject if needs be http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NiMH
