Talismoon Retractable Sensor Wiire
Site: Buy from TotalConsole
Overview : For those who take their Wii on the road, the retractable wii sensor bar reduces the bulk and weight that you need to carry with you. Convenient with many TV systems as it requires less space than a full length sensor bar and can fit in many places! The sensor Wiire consists of two sensor blocks on a retractable spool. Approximately two feel (2') in length, when fully extended.
Quality/Usability : The size of the Nintendo Wii is fairly small compared to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Its also the most carried around system from house to house in my family since everyone in the family can play with the Nintendo Wii. Transferring the Nintendo Wii in a case isnt the problem, its the sensor bar. Its probably the longest and probably most fragile accessory due to its size. Not to mention, the sensor bar is usually attached to the display and the double-sided tape will eventually wear off and having to deal with the long wire. Even using a third party sensor bar such as the Nyko Wireless Sensor Bar. It can be too big, too wide and/or uses too many batteries.
- Fits anywhere!
- Fully adjustable - for use close up or far away
- Clever "Pack and Go" design
- Suitable for use away from home, including at hotels, show cars, and in recreational vehicles
- Ultra compact, completely compatible with Wii.
With the Retractable Sensor Wiire by Talismoon, they're reducing the size, batteries and wire. The size is really small. It measures approximately 2" long, 1/4" thick (3/4" when snapped together) and can fit in a pouch or small pocket. Talismoon reduced the size simply by removing the middle section of a sensor bar. Honestly, all it is is an empty space. Its the right and left side that is important since that is where the LED is located.
The sensor itself works great. Then again, using candles or Christmas lights will also work. Simply detach Sensor Wiire and put one sensor on each side of your TV. There was no delays or any problems with the Wiimote recognizing or moving with the Sensor Wiire. The only thing that may be a problem is the wire. Although it is fairly long measuring approximately 2 feet long, the retractable wire is iffy. Majority of the time, the wire will retract but if retracting is not aligned, the wires will not retract and you're left with dangling wires. When the wires do tangle, I am able to pull on the wires and try to retract it again. But how long will I have to do this before the wires no longer retract? I've experienced retractable ID badges and once they're jammed up, its not longer usable.
Conclusion : Overall, the Talismoon Retractable Sensor Wiire is highly recommended for those who bring their Nintendo Wii around, just to have a spare or is looking for a replacement.
