    The batteries are not recharging. How could they? There's no power source. The batteries are the power source. It's not physically possible.

    It doesn't come with rechargeables but I've been thinking about using them (I have some Rayovac 15 minute rechargeables that are supposed to last twice as long as alkalines).
    We are not doing any hard-core gaming but have replaced the batts in both wii-motes since Jan 21st!
    It's either that or buy another 16-pack of alkalines.

    Throwin it up for the big SD.
    I second this. It is not possible... what is happening is your checking the battery on screen (which isnt completely accurate by the way) and it says what ? 2 blocks but when it "loses connections" the remote has shut down. So the batteries aren't being used... then u power it back on n check the indicator real quick n since its not accurate like I said it reads it as having more power since it sat idle for a while not being used.

    make sense

    rofl @ self-charging batteries.

    But anyway, rechargeables are a very good idea with the Wiimote. I bought a few high-capacity LiMH's and they work great. Never buying alkalines again.

    Those 16 packs start to really add up in the landfills. BUY the rechargeables.
    1) You save a ton of cash
    2) You never need to run to the store to play your Wii
    3) You don't dump a giant pile of batteries into landfills.

    omg same crap happen to me. The ones they provided had like 1 bar left, so i took em out and use other batterys. After those died out i used the old one with the 1 bar left, and it said it was full.

    That charging station is brilliant. It will also keep us from putting the remotes all over the place when we're done. :yesnod:

    It says in the manual NOT to put in rechargeable batteries! Use at your own risk!

    and actually there is a way in the near future for a battery to charge itself without a power source. its called nuclear fussion. not fission, fussion. this nuclear fission is being developed as we speak. not many details are being relesed on this product but id say at this rate this self-recharging battery will be developed in the next 10-15 years. it is said to run on a single water molecuel. the only thing that is keeping this project from being created is the enviormentalist that are affraid that these testing plants might have a *meltdown*. which will destroy the areas soil and make it an unlivable place. which i beleive is a load of crap, but anyways, there will be a self rechargable battery in the near future.

    Nintendo also said this:
    On the same site, under "Health and Safety Precautions - battery leakage".
    Notice the "nickel metal hydride". Aren't those the rechargeable batteries they recommended?

    :lol: :lol:

    It's actually spelled "fusion," and it's not being developed so much as a way to do it on earth is being discovered. Fusion happens in stars all the time in what's called "hot fusion," but earth is obviously not the right environment for it to occur. What they're attempting to come up with now is "cold fusion," something many scientists consider impossible.

    And I highly doubt it would (or could?) be used for single batteries. More likely, fusion power plants would replace the current ones.

    Back on topic, LiMHs work just fine. I've been using them for weeks.

    wow.... I dont want to talk about battery crap, but yes it happened to me few times. It had 2 battery left on the screen then i turn it off for few min, then it became 4? Then after few min it became 3 and is staying that way for a while. So, pretty weird.

    buddy mine does the same as your's, the reason for this is because it gives u a ruff estimate of battery life through the battery meter, The reason it is lower when playing zelda is because it uses more battery life when playing a game to when your just browsing the menu's and what not. Thats why it changes every now and then.

    Forget fission. There ARE cell phone chargers that are in development that charge the phone's battery wirelessly. So basically as soon as you get home or near you car, your phone will begin to recharge. So it is possible. That said... THATS NOT WHATS HAPPENING HERE. It's just a inaccurate battery meter. My RAZR does the same thing all the time. The battery bar will be red with no power and I'll turn the phone off and back on again and suddenly, there will be 3 bars. Use the phone for 30 seconds and suddenly you're back at red.
