    Own one. Love it. A damn good investment. I've had my charge station since July, and it's still going strong.

    If it really does go dead after 6 months, i'll be sure to let you guys know

    Unfortunately I recieved a massive amount of batteries from X-mas 06. So I'm not buying anything until I go through all of them. I think so far I only used up 10% of the box. SSBB should put a dent in that... maybe I'll use a GC controller.

    This seems to be a pretty decent idea for some people, but IMO isn't really worth getting another gadget sitting around the TV with a power cord lying around etc. There are already too many chargers, cables etc.

    What works for me is to have a large number (10-12) AA and AAA rechargeable batteries and a good charger sitting around. If you can manage to always have a few charged batteries available you can just swap out batteries when you die.

    since AA and AAA are more "standard" they'll work for all the toys, remotes and what not. Much less clutter and really functional.

    these days rechargeable batteries are pretty cheap too.

    The clutter is really next to nothing - I'm pretty concerned with the aesthetics of our TV area, and the Nyko takes up just a tiny bit of extra space right next to the Wii and the power cord disappears behind the stand/TV. In fact, it makes the controllers (unless you put them in a drawer) look much more organized while they're not being used.

    I was going to buy one of these the day I got my wii. I still don't have one.

    The only reason I don't have one is that I was told that you should only charge them when they are completely dead, thus defeating the purpose of being able to always have a full charge. They said that if you put them on the charger whenever you want that it hurts the battery life.

    Can anyone comment on this? Are you really supposed to only charge them when they're dead?

    I've owned one since August and the batteries are those typically found in cordless telephone, NiMH. Like cordless telephones, these remotes are still somewhat low power requiring devices, and the Nickel Metal Hydride batteries don't develop a memory as easily as there NiCd cousins. These batteries should last 1 to 2 years before the effects begin to show.

    Stand-alone replacement batteries with a new back are available for $10 or less can be ordered or picked up at the local GameStop. For those who are cheap like me, battery specialists such as BatteriesPlus are often able to cycle out battery memory for only a couple bucks and extending the life of the battery for another 6 months to a year..

    So the answer is No. I don't see it being a problem.
