The problem with using rechargeable battery's in anything, is the voltage. rechargeable batts run @ 1.2v per unit, alkaline batts run @ 1.5v. Though i have not moved to rechargeable packs yet, as there are some for sale. i would guess that the packs, switch to a different, protected, circuit. something that ordinary rechargeable's can not do.Originally Posted by supermandudekid
Have a look for the rechargeable packs, selling for about £13.
put simply, rechargeables have a lower voltage, this can lead to the finer control being lost, also rechageabls deliver their stored power much faster than alkalines do. potentially leading to premature component failure. that said, often nothing goes amiss even if you do use them. my thoughts though on the wii remote are, its too sensitive to risk the use of home charge batts. though the aforementioned rechargeable packs, should be fine.
