    Weird batterie power

    Umm... does Nintendo make the wiimote like magic or something? Because I think its realy weird that a wireless motion sensing controler that uses aa batteries last for over 30 hours. When I use aa bateries on my gamboy advanced it last for like 2 hours and there isnt much of a difference in energy being used so am I crazy or is the wiimote magic?

    wii would like to play..now!

    Try getting Rayovac batteries and test them out for a week or 2 and tell me if they last for 30 hours and if they dont even come remotely close then you can call me crazy wii playa.

    Those batteries all stink. Energizers arent good if you want quality batteries get duracell or rayovac with rayovac being my favorite.

    Mine have lasted about that long aswell. I use duracells, and they are awesome. On average I get about 25-28 hours.

    Please add me and PM if you do

    There is actually several BIG differences.

    1. The wiimote doesn't have to power a display; this is a big power hog that wiimotes don't have to deal with.

    2. The wiimote isn't doing any calculations. . .only relaying the necessary data to the wii to do the calculations.

    3. The wiimote isn't trying to run an entire game. . .that's the Wii's job.

    ^^^^^ - Yeah there is a big difference why your gameboy last 2 hours, and the Wii-mote 30hours

    Mine lasted 20-30 hours on the batteries they gave me. Verry nice that i don't have to spend 20$ a month on batteries really

    I've been using my Wiimote with the batteries that came with it pretty much constantly for the past week and I've only used 1/4 bars (25% used), and it seems to go back to 4 bars every so often.

    According to my Wii, I play 3-8 hours a day, and I've had it for 6 days now (I think, too lazy to check), that's 18 to 48 hours of use, and only 1/4 bars gone.

    I haven't even bothered to buy rechargeables yet because of that. When I do, I plan to get Energizer NiMH rechargeables.
