    i was looking in the manual for something on batteries and came across something saying:

    Use only alkaline batteries
    Do not use: and it lists all the various rechargeable batteries (NIMH) (Lithium)

    this is my first post so i hope this hasnt been asked before or that im putting this in the wrong place but has there been any problems with anyone using the rechargable batteries just wondering before i put them in my wiimote that eats up batteries :/

    Most people on here will use rechargeable batteries. I think they just said that because they want people to buy batteries for companys to make more money lol.
    Seriously, i dont know. But i use them and havent had a problem.

    Oh and welcome to Wii-Chat!

    It is a fair post, but alot of products that require batteries recommend that you don't use rechargables. I've been using rechargeables in my wiimote since launch, and have had no problems.

    Yeah, pretty much every electronic device states that. Its because almost all rechargeable batteries run @ 1.2vdc where as the standard alkaline run @ 1.5vdc, but it never hurts anything. I think I have like 36 NiMh rechargeable batteries and not a one malfunction.

    Duracell Rechargeable AACU

    The weird thing is, the remote works fine for making Mii's or choosing games to place. But then it won't work when I am a character on Wii Sports. Haven't tried other discs. I'm assuming this is the rechargeable battery. Has this been a problem for anyone else?

    when i started using rechargeable batts, my wii remote ocassionally loses its sound. when this prob occurs, take out the batts, wait for a couple minute and then put on the batts and the wii remote should be fine. i tried that but still my wii remote loses its sound. i dunno if this prob is caused by the rechargeable batts or not. i hope nintendo can fix it..

    Perhaps you should test with non rechargeable batteries before posting the story...

    NiMH on the nyko lame ones.

    I use energizer rechargeables in my wii remotes since I got the wii a month ago. NO PROBLEMS!

    i suggest you guys just go out and buy rechargeable batteries. the ones not meant for the wii.

    i got sony NiMH with lcd indicators recharger and 4 NiMH 2700 for like 24 bucks. it's online and i think those are a better deal. those rechargeable batteries that's made for the wii won't last forever. they do fail after a certain number of charges.

    oh and it's okay to use NiMH batteries. nintendo has stated that it's okay.

    "What kind of batteries does the Wii Remote use?
    The Wii Remote comes with 2 non-rechargeable alkaline AA batteries. Rechargeable batteries may be used with the Wii Remote. Nintendo only recommends NiMH (nickel metal hydride) rechargeable batteries for use in the remote."

    this is stupid, I have used Duracell and Energizer AACU rechargeable batteries in my wii remotes from the day I got my Wii 8 months ago and I have never had one problem or any kind of malfunction with my Wii.

    I dunno, I got the Nyko set just because I like having the charger stand (I'm lazy). No problems thus far. I actually love the battery cover that came with em too, feels nice to the touch. lol.

    The only reason I can think of not to use rechargeable batteries is that they will oxidize quicker than alkaline if you forget about them and just let your wiimote collect dust.
