Wii Remote Battery Charger & Stand
Site: Buy from Goldenshop
Overview : The Wii Remote Battery Charger & Stand charges your Wii Remote when the battery pack is dead via USB. Not only does it charge but it also holds your Nunchuk.
Quality/Usability : The Wii Remote Battery Charger & Stand comes with a 1800mAh battery and a USB stand/dock. All these 3rd party Asian rechargeable batteries are all starting to look alike. I wouldnt be surprised if all of them work with one another.
- High quality 3rd party product.
- Comes with a rechargeable battery for the Wii remote control - no need to take out the battery when charging.
- No need to add extra power supply - get the power from the USB port of the Wii console.
- Extra space for storing the Nunchuk.
- Light indicators to show the charging status.
The battery is attached to the battery cover so you will need to put away your original battery cover as it will no longer be needed. Inside the battery pack, you can see that there are two rechargeable AA batteries. On the front of the battery pack are two metal plates. This is where the batteries are charged when connected to the dock.
On the stand, the right side houses the Wii Remote and on the left side is the Nunchuk. The Nunchuk only sits there and does nothing else. Its pretty much just a holder. The Wii Remote fits securely in place when docked. Unfortunately, like all other rechargeable battery docks, it will not fit a Wii Remote with a controller glove on it. You will either have to take it off or just lift it up enough so that the metal contacts on the dock can touch the contacts on the battery pack.
When the Wii Remote is placed on the stand to be charged, how do you know if its charging or when its done? Simple. In between the Nunchuk holder and the Wii Remote, there is a LED. Its not really visible as its underneath the white plastic housing. Though, it is visible when the LED is lit up. When the rechargeable battery is being charged, a red LED is lit up and when it is done, the LED will be green.
Charge time took about 2 hours to completely charge. When the rechargeable battery is in use, it only lasted about 3-4 hours. This is pretty much standard with all 3rd party batteries that come from Asia.
Conclusion : Overall, the Wii Remote Battery Charger & Stand is no different from any other rechargeable battery packs on the market. It performed the same as all others. It even looks so much a like as all the other 3rd party rechargeable battery packs. The Nunchuk stand is pretty useless as all it does is hold the Nunchuk in place. Since they incorporated it into the stand, they should of made something for the cord on the Nunchuk as well. The cord is just either left hanging on the table or just thrown on top of the stand. Would of also been nice if the LED turns off when the battery is fully charged rather than the LED be green.
