    I was going to get the Joytech Wii Battery Charger but I decided to try some normal rechargeable batteries. I have two Wii Remotes so i bought a charger that Charged 4 batteries. I went with the ones the guy working there (The Source) recommended for Wii Remotes so i took them for 59.99 without taxes. It was a bit more expensive then the other recharger but i said what the heck. So i took it and it said on the case Comes Recharged. I tried them right away and it was at 3 out of 4 precent charged. I decided to charge it so i put it in the charger for 5 minutes and when i checked again it was at 4 out of 4. I used to have the Rumble off and the Remote Sound off and i usually ran out of batteries in about 4-7 days depending on play time and they would be completely out. Using the normal batteries were at half way drained within 2 days average. I have had the rechargable batteries for 9 days, i have been playing ALOT of Wii and surfing randomly on the Opera Browser. The rechargable batters are STILL AT 4 OUT OF 4 PERCENT CHARGED! 9 DAYS OF ALOT OF USEAGE AND IT HASN"T EVEN GONE DOWN BY 1 FOURTH! These batteries are Amazing! I havn't had to charge them once! So think about 14 days for it to go 1 fourth down (im geussing) so 14 days times 4 is 56 days. You would have to recharge these batteries every 56 days! WOWW!!!! The name of the battery charger is ENELOOP BATTERY CHARGER and it is made by SANYO for anyone that wants them. Anyways just a tip if you want long battery life, pick them up becuase i don't know how well the Joytech one is going to be compared to this. ;)

    lol well first off it would last 56 days if ur prediction is right lol
    well thats pretty kool but i dont think i would spend 60 bucks on chargeable batteries...i dont mind putting batteries to charge for a while so i dont think i would spend 40 dollars more juss so they last longer....but that is kool how they last long they would be great for MP3 players and cd players.well umm yeahh

    ha ha ha, "4 out of 4 percent". Sounds too good to be true unless you still don't use rumble or speakers. using browser a lot wouldn't tax them as hard seeing as how the 3 accelerometers take way more power and calculations.

    I just use two sets of regular rechargeable batteries. They take 15 hours to get from a zero charge to full. One set lasts about a week. Swap them out, and I'm good.

    i picked up an energizer battery charger with 4 batteries, fully charged in 15 minutes, and it was like 39.99...its a lifesaver, since we were going thru 4 - 6 batteries a week(2 remotes) and now i have 2 wavebirds so im gonna pick up another 4pack for 15 bucks...money well spent IMO

    I use the energiser ones and they suck. They work allright, but there is no way in hell they are the stated 2600 mAh. (originally I bought them for my HDD walkman and only ever charged them 4 times before putting them in the wii - but they allready only charge to 3 bars, and last only a few hours per charge. They leak their charge really fast if you don't use the wiimote for a few days too, which is REALLY annoying if you have a life!... Don't bother!)

    I got those same energizers by the way and I've charged them twice in 3 months. Only play like 45 mins a day too. Must be a freak case for that one guy.
