    So the other day my phone was dying(again) and I couldn't find my charger. I then saw my wii and thought that maybe with the update I could plug it in and make something happen. Guess what, I plugged in my moto and it started charging! I thought that was cool. Maybe it's always been able to do that, idk.

    I am sure that it was always able to do that, kinda odd thing for nintendo to just decide and update if it was that.
    Still though, thats good you can do that, it comes in handy.

    Yeah, USB just has a hot +5V line - the underlying "OS layer" doesn't matter.

    actually any usb port that is in a device that has been plugged in can charge any phones that use usb ports, same with mp3 players

    i can charge my phone and ipod on my

    wii, 360, sky + box, Laptop, Pc, Tv, Pc moniter, Ps2

    but you can also chrage them on Ps3 and well anything with a usb port

    its nothing to do with, updates

    FYI, I've got this slick little charger - it plugs directly into the wall and has (4) USB ports, but they're only for supplying power via USB for charging.

    Pretty nice since it's less to carry if you have a couple of devices (all you need is a much smaller USB cable).

    How do you think those wiimote chargers work, Any device that chargers from USB will work with the wii, Because it only draws the power from the power point it doesnt connect directly with anything inside the console.

    Yeah it has been able to do that, It is very convienient. I've been charging my MP3 player through my Wii for the longest. It's so much easier.

    In a strange twist of irony, I use my Wii to charge my PS3 controllers.
