    I went out and bought rechargeable batteries and a charger for my wiimote since this thing sucks batteries, especially if you keep the sound/rumble on.

    yea, when i play zelda i keep the sound and rumble off for the sake of having a longer battery life, but i turn them back on for wii sports because it adds to the effect.

    Agreed! It feels so neat to whack the tennis ball!

    I use GP 2500 NiMH rechargable batteries. They work great

    I don't understand the complaint about the non-rechargeable remote.

    Buy some rechargable AAs, keep a spare set charged & ready to go. I'm sure you have several other appliances which could use rechargable AAs as well. Otherwise, if you don't have rechargeables ready to go, throw some alkalines in it & you're up & running. Best of both worlds, but the rechargeable is def. a better plan since it is less waste.

    I applaud Nintendo for going this route b/c it lessens the clutter around the console & keeps me from having to buy an expensive special rechargeable battery/charger for the remote when it wears out.

    Okay, so now I'm thinking of getting rechargeable batteries and Iv'e seen 4x Energizer 2500 mAh AA batteries which comes with a charger .. for only 19.97 at Tesco! Now is that good enough for it? How long will they last in the Wii remote when charged fully?

    Edit: Which is like $39 :P

    not sure how long they'll last, they should last as long as alkalines. Energizers are definitely good enough for it, unless you want to be a snob & buy really expensive rechargables Actually, you can usually find Sony rechargables online for about the same price as energizers in retail.

    This is what I've got, simple & effective:

    Well apparently NiMH batteries are supposed to be better than Alkaline, and that is what these are, as I have researched. So, I kinda guessed that these would do just fine.

    YES exactly what i would have loved to see... nintendo probably dident want to use more money making chargers but i think they're gonna lose money bcs im not gonna have as much money for games because im gonna be using it 4 games lol
