    So, last week I went on gamestop's site to check out the Wii accessories..I saw the charge station, which charges 2 remotes at the same time, or you can play with one while charging the other..

    It cost $30 and I was willing to pay that much for endless use of the Wiimote without ever replacing its batteries again..

    Basically, it comes with

    - The main component, the charge station with LED lights to alert you when the Wiimotes are done charging
    - 2 battery packs designed to fit in the Wiimote perfectly
    - 2 battery covers with rubberized exterior for improved grip

    Ah, both Wiimotes had 1 bar of battery life on them, so I left them charging..Green light = charing, blue light = done...However, this was at my bedtime..Woke up the next morning, both charged..

    Ahh, full battery = Lots of play time ^^

    I really do recommend this to anybody that doesn't want to spend the $5 they're required to spend for 2 batteries...Battery prices are ridiculous these days.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll be picking up a charge station soon, hopefully.

    Very...helpful?

    I might buy the charger. Sounds like it's worth it.

    You can't get rechargable batteries for the Wii, it uses alcholi batteries which u cant get in rechargable format, so your only option is a charge station, there great, 3 hours and my wii remote was full.

    Ummm WTF?

    I cannot believe you actually just said that, like, even if you were misinformed you still wouldn't be stupid enough to believe that.

    Simple logic would tell you otherwise.

    I mean. I cannot believe it.

    My god. Are your parents brother and sister?

    To answer all your questions

    - I'm not a female, but i dunno how else to express my strong feelings for my charge station.. LOL

    - No, it doesn't go through the USB thingie..Its one of the outlet thingies that you plug in the wall...Charge time for 2 remotes is like 3-4 hours and for one remote it took me like 1 hour, hour and a half..

    - I'm glad im not the only one suffering from battery prices! lol

    Huh, I didn't know that. I guess that means that I've not been playing my Wii for the past 4 months with rechargable batteries I bought from Walmart. I guess that means I haven't been taking those drained batteries and putting them in my 8 cell recharger so I can use them again and again.

    BTW: I use NiMH 2500mAH batteries. For anyone who couldn't see through my sarcasm, they work fine.
