    I don't have grips, but if you got a charger, wouldn't you have to cut a hole in the grip? Why don't you just leave the grip things off?

    Actually you would have to take the grips off to charge the units. Because on the nyko verson the contacts are flush with the wiimote battery cover and if you had the grip on there with a hole cut in it it would never make contact.

    You could probably perform some kind of modification to extend the contacts.

    I got the sport grips to replace the original battery covers on the first day. I don't remember if it was hard to get the cover off, but the sport grip cover is not difficult to open at all. My sport grips are by Nyko. It has rubber cushion on it so it is easier to hold on when playing tennis or golf. The pairs are color coded so I can easily tell which is WiiMote1 without those ugly silicone skin. I bought it at CircuityCity for $6.99 but I found them at FYE for $4.99 and GameStop for $9.99.

    same with the joytech charger, couple of bits of tinfoil soldered on should do it fine

    If you have a AA NiMH charger, get the sport grip battery covers and half a dozen rechargeable NiMH batteries. If you don't have an AA NiMH fast charger, get one. It will still be cheaper than these WiiMote charger and you can use it for something else.

    Yea I have the same ones. I did not want to get the full skins because of the trouble they had with the Ipods. They scratched and trapped dust and whatnot under the skins and made the Ipod's malfunction. Stay away from the full skins.

    I bought a wiimote grip that has a panel that lifts up so you can change the battery. If I can track it down, I'll post a picture later.
