    Has anyone had to replace their batteries yet in their controller? I'm curious how long they last with just two AA batteries powering the sound, rumble, and nunchuk... Any info would be nice

    thanks

    Nintendo said about 30-60 hours. But I have heard its the low end of that estimate.

    I've been playing quite a lot over the past week, and my batteries are currently standing at 2/3, according to the home menu.

    My batteries are just about dead. The power level keeps on alternating between 2/4 and 1/4. But I have another Wii remote w/ full life batteries and a stockup on brand new batteries. :)

    I've had to change them twice now. But that being with like 60 hours of game time. I highly doubt I will be putting that much time into wii next semester so I'm not too worried.

    That's not actually very good. I was expecting more. I hardly every had to change the batteries in my GameCube.

    For some wierd reason my second controller did lose battery yesterday and i have been playing it alot but not enough to lose all the battery. Also i use the first controller more than the second one so the first controller should have lost battery. Maybe did i not power down the second controller but i know i did and they console was off all night.

    Mine is alternating between full and 3/4 and I have played it about 20 hours with rumble on and the sound at the maximum. So I'd say thats pretty good.

    Just buy recharble batteries with a charger by energizer or duracell for like $20.

    My batteries (I think the brand is Maxwell, came with the remote.) only lasted a good 23 and a half hours. I went to Walgreens before work and picked up an Energizer battery charger, they were advertised in the paper for 30.00, but I got them for 10.00 plus an extra set of rechargable batteries and I only ended up paying 22.00. These work fine so far, I just had a little problem synching up the remote, other than that everything looks good and in the long run I'll be saving money. :)

    i have 2 wiimotes, and ive accumulated about 30-35 hours on both of them bc of multiplayer and having no bias towards one remote. One is completely dead, and the other is on the brink of dieing, which is a complete pain in the ass. I wish they were rechargable

    I think I may just get rechargeable batteries.. if a 3rd party battery charger doesn't become available.

    Will rechargeable batteries harm the wiimote at all? It says in the instructions not to use them, so I just wanted to make sure before I ignored that.
