    So I purchased 4 batteries for 2 of my wii motes. All lithium, cost me $15.. Eff that tbh. I dont wanna do that again.

    I see rechargable wii stations for $30.. Which is more practical. TBH, I don't know what to get though. The Nyko one seems good. It already comes with 2 rechargable sets for 2 wiimotes. I'd rather buy a station than non-station(normal rechargable batteries) because the station looks cooler imo.

    If I was to get 2 more wiimotes, I'd probably just get normal rechargable ones for those.

    So yea. I'll probably get the Nyko one, unless someone gives me enough reasons not to. I'm probably gonna have to order it online though.

    I can't get rechargeable batteries to work with my wiimotes. They are Energizer lithium-ion or someting rather.

    How long do the rechargable batteries last anyways? lifetime wise and charge wise. I would consider getting a charging station or just a fine set of rechargable batteries becuase I'm getting frustrated, spending so much money on regular batteries.

    I'm a little puzzled...What does IMO, TBH, and FTW mean? Not too much of a blogger.

    IMO = In my opinion
    TBH = To be honest
    FTW = For the world/for the win

    I threw away my wii AA bats. They ran outta juice. Can you use the charge stations with normal batteries?

    No, it comes with rechargeable battery packs that fit straight into your wiimote.

    Maybe I'll go for the Nyko. So no one has any problems with the Nyko? How long has it been out?

    So letme get this right. Nyko comes with the charging station, the usb cord, and rechargable batteries for the 2 Wiimote. How much are extra batteries for 2 more Wiimotes(so total of 4 wiimotes)?

    why don't you just by rechargeable AA batteries with a charger? you get 4 AA rechargeable batteries and the charger for like 25 or less.

    I just use NiMH AA batteries with 2000-2600mAh rating and a Rayovac 1hr charger. Each charge holds >12hr of gaming. Since the charging of 4 battery takes less than an hour. You never need more than 6 AA batteries to keep 2 WiiMote running all the time. In addition, all rechargeable batteries have a limited charging cycle lifespan. You'll regret when you need to replace those proprietric battery packs for WiiMote charger.

    Are you serious? If that were the case then battery companies would never make money because you can buy 4 of each type of battery and charge them. Are people really that stupid?:wtf: :shocked: :scared:

    I have color skins in all my wiimotes - any of these charge stations work with those? Do I need to poke a hole for gold connectors?
