    Can anyone comment on this? Are you really supposed to only charge them when they're dead?
    That was more of a concern with older type rechargable batteries (the old NiCad types mainly). Newer rechargables are not totally immune, but it's much less of an issue, something that you don't really need to worry about.

    I use the new "Hybrid" rechargeable batteries. They last a lot longer than regular rechareables. Plus they don't lose their charge when they're not being used either.

    Cool. I use both personally, standard rechargeable batteries in two Wii Remotes and the Nyco charger for the other two. The standard charger is cheaper, and don't see the point in investing a charging stand that is twice the price of regular recharger when two of the four is used less frequently.

    On the other hand the first two are used almost constantly. The Wii is played between 3 to 8 hours a day and these Wii Remotes are up and down off the charging stand all day. This is where the Nyco charger really shines, as we don't have to worry about having to swap batteries mid-game due to discharge so the fun remains continuous. Swapping the other two's batteries before a four player session has made this setup perfect.

    Or grab a quicker charger. Duracell and Energizer both have models that charge within 15-20 min.

    I got the Psyclone brand because it was cheaper, and it lights up while it's charging so you know if it's done or not. In my opinion, there definitely worth it.
