5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. 4 Aug 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had looked at a number of charge units for the Wii console but decided to hold out till this one was released in the UK. The unit was released in the States prior to UK release and seemed to get mostly excellent reviews (www.amazon.com). Had it up and running now for about a week and is doing a great job. Wii-motes are always charged up and had no problems with them sitting correctly in the unit. If you look at Nyko's website you'll also see that they already have available in the States additional battery packs and compartment covers which means that if you have more than 2 Wii-motes you can buy these converting all your Wii-motes to rechargeable units without having to buy an additional charger, seems good to me ! Hopefully these will become available in the UK......dont see any reason why they shouldn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 7 Dec 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought these after reading the last review, as I suspect I was buying a small fortune in batteries. Well worth the money, and looks brilliant. I had a couple of issues getting the remotes in properly (hint: place the remote on the two pegs, then let it drop back onto the pins), but overall it's been an excellent purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't ask for more 30 Sep 2008
We bought this docking station because Gamestation had 2 sorts and this was the one which had its own battery-things included although it was a touch more expensive.

We have never had a problem with it, it charges quickly, the batteries last for ages whereas before we were going through loads of cheapo batteries! It matches the colour of the wii and the battery-covers are rubberised so they are non-slip which is great.

The only thing which I have only recently noticed as a slightly possible hindrance is that it does need its own plug socket which can be a bit of a pain because our wii is in the living room amongst the tv, dvd player, vcr (yes I still have one!) and cable box so there are lots of wires but it just means it can be plugged in when the wii isn't being used and kept with their charge until needed.

I will probaby end up putting mine on here to sell soon though because for no reason at all my girlfriend has just decided to go out and buy a new charging station which plugs straight into the wii so there is no need for an extra plug socket. BUT it hasn't come with it's own batteries so we have to go out and buy new rechargeable AAA batteries for each wii-mote, it will only charge when the wii is in standby mode which I believe defeats the object and considering we can't keep our wii on standby between uses, we have to turn it off at the plug because it throws a wobbly and we need to reboot it anyway, I can see the situation getting beyond annoying.

I prefer this one, it's always worked, works well with my temperamental wii and is worth the extra money. All I can say to those who's have died - just take it back and get a replacement and if that doesn't work get a refund, but you will always get the odd few that don't work - one of the drawbacks of technology

5.0 out of 5 stars Battery pack can't be bought 31 Dec 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great product and does exactly what it says - I've had one a year and been very pleased with it - it still works fine, although (on mine) the right hand wiimote has to be positioned a little carefully to ensure it charges. Easy to see and interpret leds to show charging / full. Its well built and feels good quality - as do other Nyko products we have for the Wii.

However, after a year the batteries have died - this is not particularly unexpected, but you CAN NOT buy the replacement battery packs anywhere in Europe and shipping them from the US is $10 for the packs + $30 shipping (~27) - so unless they have sorted this problem out in 12 months time - expect to bin the entire unit and have to buy a whole new one.

For this reason I would recommend looking at other chargers where you can buy replacement battery packs.

Please - if you know otherwise, tell me where you can buy the battery packs - anywhere in Europe.

UPDATE - I contacted the manufacturer in the US directly and they are more than happy to supply batteries at a reasonable cost - so my rating is now 5!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic addition to the Wii 3 Jan 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought one of these not long after getting my Wii last year. The battery packs are a snug fit, but it works a treat and my wii-motes now never seem to run out of power! Couldn't really ask for better!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you buy anything for the Wii buy this!! 24 Dec 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What a godsend! No more hunting through drawers etc for the last two AA batteries half way through a game. Battery units fit perfectly (love the grips) and charging time, after the first couple of charges, is minimal! If you're looking for a rechargeable solution to your Wii Woe's this is the one to go for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent piece of kit 18 Mar 2009
I looked at various reviews before I bought a charger for my Wii remotes. This had good reviews so I went ahead and all I can say is that I'm really pleased with it. The handsets fit easily into the charger with minimum fuss to get them into the right place for charging. The new backs you get for the remotes are stylish and give you extra grip. The actual charging station looks quite good as well. I've even managed to train the kids to always put them back on the charger so that they'll always have fully charged remotes, which saves me having to pick them up off the living room floor. Excellent product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin.
No frills, no problem, and sensible not to need a USB port which are quickly being used up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hopefully cheaper than batteries in the long run.
The batteries seem to last a while and because there's 2, you always have a spare when one runs out. Recharge time takes about 2 hours. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Nyko charging station (cheaper to buy this then replacement batteries)
This is a charing station.
I already had one but it was cheaper to buy a new charging station then to just buy the batteries.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Bit of Kit
Does exactly what it's meant to do. My previous charger, running off the Wii USB port, was sensitive to the position of the Wiimote and often stopped charging. Read more

Much better than the competition - not 5 stars though as 1 of the LEDs indicating charging gave up early on.
