    From the offical site -

    WARNING - Rechargeable batteries left unattended in the recharge unit for an extended period of time may cause the batteries and/or unit to overheat. If the Wii (TM) remote doesn't charge properly or begins to heat up, please stop the charge process and contact our customer service line to prevent further damage. If you feel that your batteries are heating up, please do not use those batteries any more. We are happy to help you and replace your product:

    Wii owners who have opted for a third party recharge station could be putting their Wii Remotes at risk, it's emerged.

    Offending hardware Psyclone Wii Recharge Station apparently fails to stop charging the Wii Remote once the battery is full.

    This predictably causes Remotes to overheat and melt. In extreme cases, this has left noticeable scorch marks inside the Wii Remote, rendering it useless.

    A warning on the Psyclone website advices users to not leave batteries in the recharge unit for an extended amount of time, although how long 'an extended amount of time' actually lasts is not made clear. Nintendo hasn't announced a rechargeable system for the Wii Remotes, but given that 29 out of 31 reviews on Amazon give the Psyclone Wii Recharge Station only one star, sticking to disposable batteries (or rechargeable) until an official device is released doesn't sound like such a bad idea.

    My brother got this from his girlfriend for Christmas. Thanks for the heads up.

    Jeez. Thanks for the info...not that I was considering that model, it will definitely make me think twice about others. Probably best to wait for Nintendo to release something anyway.

    only way to really know for sure is os the company how it operates if it stays on when left on the charger or auto shuts off when charged... Or you could bust out a voltmeter and test it... i did to mine to make sure it shut the power off when fully charged.

    One of the main reasons why I opt out of chargers and just buy energizer batteries, honestly I play for hours on end most days and the batteries are fine.
    Chargers are good for more than one Wiimote though I guess, I only have one so I don't need to make sure the rest are all working.

    Thanks for the heads up though.
