    I think I burned through the batteries that came with the wiimotes within 12-16 hours. Duracell Coppertops lasted roughly 20-24 hours. Currently using Duracell 2400 mAh rechargeables at 15-30 hours between charges.

    But yeah, back on topic, of course your GB is going to be consuming more power. Might make the spread further by saying you only have to replace the AA's in your TV/DVD player once a year.

    If you get that it's not the same amount of power, how do you not understand that a battery can last much longer on a single charge?

    Device that uses more power = battery that gets drained fast.
    Device that uses less power = battery that gets drained slowly.

    I guess it all depends on how much you use the Wiimote? Also, Do you have your Wiimote speaker on? I turn mine off and it seems to save a lot of battery.

    Completely depends on batteries. Industrial Strength batteries usually have good battery length.

    I found the stock batteries to last around 20 hours for me in Zelda. It also depends on how many times it rumbles too for you and what you are playing, because some make use of the wiimote speaker or rumble etc.

    I then replaced my batteries in both wiimotes with energizer lithium batteries. They sure cost a shiny penny, 8 pack for like $15, but they have lasted over 50 hours more of gameplay and still have all 4 bars. Had them since middle of December.
