    Just wondering if anyone know anything about the batteries for wireless wii remote?
    I cant seem to find any info on it and wondered if they use some kind of rechargeable battery pack or if they use 2x AA batts?

    rechargable would be nice, maybe there is a docking station or something that holds all four wiimotes....with the battery life nintendo gets out of a gameboy nowadays the wiimote would last for weeks between charges

    then again my wavebird lasts a long time on a set of batteries as long as it gets turned off when not in use...

    so either way is good for me

    I have not heard anything either but I would have to say that I think they would be rechargable becasue that would make them the most practical.

    I'd like it to be rechargeable or perhaps let us have an option of plugging it in (it'd have to be long) or use it wirelessly to play.

    Batteries on a controller would be annoying though, I keep having to change my wireless mouse every 2 weeks.

    I believe the Wiimote takes a standard AA battery. Another option would be to buy rechargable AA batteries.

    ^-- rechargable batteries, good investment

    evil panda: you may want to get your mouse checked out or something, my wireless one used to last like 6 months

    A rechargeable remote would be nice and convenient, we'll just have to wait and see.

    LOL Nintendo is known to having us wait and that's genuis. You figure the less we know about something makes us all the more interested in knowning what it is and how it works.

    I've seen somewhere i don't remember the site...but i've seen a rechargeable stand some where for the wiimote...i think the best thing for Nintendo would be to do it rechargeable with a Ion battery like on the ds and the sp...

    Asolutely agree. It would be real annoying and cost heavy to not give you a rechargeable battery.

    I just hope the gimmicks don't take over my room. I mean, they made a great looking platform, very simple and small... but are they leaving alot of stuff out for the style of the system, or just forgot to add it and thought about this stuff later on?

    I mean, okay the motion sensing bar is understandable for the best possible performance placed on the tv, but now the game cube ports require the top up on the system, and there might be a charger for the remotes, or we'll have to change them/charge them manually?! I hope this all comes together.

    from gamespot at e3:

    Looks like those who want a rechargable wiimote will have to turn to duracell or energizer :(

    I hope it is rechargable. I'm sure there will be some sort of unofficial one if it isn't, it just depends on how reliable it would be!

    That's another thing! What about third party companies creating remotes, they're probably the most expensive remotes on the market, and with the totally new and complex design of the controller(s) I can't see anything but official Nintendo controllers/remotes for the first little while.

    rechargeable would be very convient. but it will probably be batteries, they would have said if it was rechargeable.

    Well I followed the E3 at IGN and read like _everything_ about the Wii, and it surprised me too that they didn't say ANYTHING about batteries or if it will be rechargeable or not. I think that's crazy. It's like they didn't even look at the bottom of the damn controller and opened it up!

    I think it would suck to have to put AA batteries in, that's so old ;) Then again it would be more expensive for Nintendo to put Li-ion accu's in every wiimote.

    I bet it will be rechargable.
    If not, then it probally run on double A batteries.
    I hope they will be rechargable.
