    Traditional Vs Recharagable Vs Charge Station

    Is it safe to use rechargable batteries in the Wimote? I heard they should be ok because I think they are both Alkaline. But I also heard that they dont last that long, which makes me think about the Charge Station which uses Lithium Ion I believe and I don't know if that can harm the remote. What is the best way to go?

    My Duracell 2650 mAh has lasted me over 40+ hours and still at half bar. I play Zelda, Excite Truck, and Madden a bunch. My two little nieces also play Wii Sports all the time. So I'm pretty sure the 40+ hours is a lot more. What I do is used the batteries until it is completely drain and then fully charge which takes about 5 hours (I know I got a slower charger).

    Yes, it's okay to use rechargeable batteries in the Wiimote. I have Lithium Ion batteries and they last about week or more of playing nightly.
