Junk - doesn't work out of the box,
This review is from: Dual Wii Remote Charging Station (Wii) (Video Game)
Firstly the controllers just won't lean up against the charging stand without some serious balancing tricks: turn your back and they have come off charge.
Secondly, one of the batteries sent with my device just didn't work (when put in the stand it just flashes madly at you). Got my multimeter out and it read 2Volts (should be putting out 3Volts ish to replace two 1.5V batteries: obviously!), and whats worse the other battery (which did work) was pumping out 4Volts.
Luckily (unlike the previous reviewer) this didn't blow up the controller, but I presume theirs was possibly a high enough voltage to do so.
Basically this is cheap junk: don't buy it. Even if the batteries were 'in specification' it's almost impossible to balance the controllers in such a way to actually charge them.
I think Amazon should withdraw the product, there is definitely the possibility of this damaging your controllers if they have such poor tolerance on the battery specifications.

Mine worked fine for 3 months then no matter what I do the remotes will not lean up against the charging contacts. This is a terrible product... avoid!
