    I insist, it's the rumble that takes away most of the batteries, not the nunchuck.

    Well if its a problem I would use a charger like others have said.
    But really, its not lying, just play until it disconnects the remote. Thats the indication I use to know when to change the batteries.

    I never use rumble anyway, so yes factor that in.

    I still say the battery indicator lies. One minute it's on red then you check five minutes later and it's back two bars again. And I don't want to wait for the controller to disconnect - this shouldn't happen in an in-game situation.

    Having it go from red back to blue is not a bad thing, and if that does happen in game, then have some batteries handy.

    Really, its not that big of a deal.

    Maybe this will help (if you've not looked it up already yourself).

    Alkaline batteries stored at "room temperature" self discharge at a rate of less than two percent per year. So normally refrigerating or freezing them will only help maintain their charge by a tiny amount. Hardly worth the effort of chilling them. However, if alkaline batteries are stored at higher temperatures they will start to lose capacity much quicker. At 85 degrees F they only lose about 5% per year, but at 100 degrees they lose 25% per year. So if you live in a very hot climate or are storing your batteries in a very hot location, it may be worthwhile for you to store your alkaline batteries in a refrigerator instead.

    NiMH and NiCd batteries self discharge at a MUCH faster rate than alkaline batteries. In fact, at "room temperature" (about 70 degrees F) NiMH and NiCD batteries will self discharge a few percent PER DAY. Storing them at lower temperatures will slow their self discharge rate dramatically. NiMH batteries stored at freezing will retain over 90% of their charge for full month. So it might make sense to store them in a freezer. If you do, it's best to bring them back to room temperature before using them. Even if you don't freeze your NiMH batteries after charging them, you should store them in a cool place to minimize their self discharge.
    SOURCE

    Some people will claim that freezing rechargeable NiCD or NiMH will help reduce "memory charges" in a battery and allow it to resume it's once full charge. This was a popular with many laptop owners of the day, before Li-Ion phased the remainder of NiCD/NiMH batteries out. "Charge Memory" happens when these batteries are not charged completely before usage or they are drained severely to a specific point, there is a chemical change that can render these batteries to provide less charge than they was designed to.
