    My Wii won't be opened until Christmas, so this post was a bit confusing to me.

    Here in the US, according to the current version of Nintendo's User Manual for the Wii, the Wii-mote uses AA batteries. Not AAA batteries. AA NiMh batteries are typically 2000+ mAh, not 1000 mAh. AAA NiMh batteries are typically ~1000 mAh. AA batteries are It's hard to judge the size by the picture.

    You posted prices in £'s, which leads me to believe you're in the UK. [edit]And it says so in your location. duh, I missed that.[/edit]

    Is the Wii-mote in the UK powered by AAA batteries? Is there a difference in terminology between the US and the UK? (Do we call it AA and you call it AAA, but we're talking about the same thing? Like you call an elevator a lift, and an apartment is a flat.)

    In general?

    Ni-MH batteries; 2000+

    I think I have 2650's in mine, and I can use them for about a week without recharging.

    Right I think most are rating batteries based on previous experience e.t.c. While I'm not a scientist I have used rechargeable batteries for over 10years. And to be honest the higher the drain the more mAh you want. I currently use energisers for my wiimote. And they are rated at 2000mAh. I find they last long enough and the best thing to do is have two sets of batteries that way one set is always charged. So far the max time i get is about 9hrs give or take a few minutes. Thats with nunchuk and all remote features running. I chose not to go with the charging stations as I've read of a quite a few users who have rendered their wiimote useless from using these devices. So I would say go for the best batteries you can find and a decent charger and everything should be just fine.

    And thats all I have to say on that (",)

    I'd prefer eneloop rechargeable batteries. Standard NiMH batteries self discharge, even when not being used. Even ff you don't use the Wiimote for a week or so, it will lose significant charge with NiMH batteries. The eneloop batteries will be just like you left it.

    I was just reading about eneloop on their website. Interesting. But I can't figure it out: are they just a modified species of Ni-MH batteries? Nintendo recommends only using Ni-MH rechargeable batteries. Is there any risk involved with using eneloop?

    Edit: found this article and feel better about using them.

    What charger do you use with eneloop batteries?

    Thanks for your feedback.

    They are compatible with ordinary NiMH chargers.

    Well since you guys are familar with the mAhr term, basically the higher the mAh, the longer the batteries will last. So basically batteries that are rated for 2650 mAh will last for just over 25% longer than a 2000 mAh one. Basically you should be able to calculate the difference in time based on personal testing, but there is nothing complicated about the numbers.
