Overview : The Charge 'N Play converts your Wii Remote into a rechargeable gaming remote. The Charge 'N Play features a USB charging dock that keeps your Wii Remote charging when not in use. With Charge 'N Play, drained batteries are a thing of the past.
High quality 3rd party product.
Comes with a rechargeable battery for the Wii remote control - no need to take out the battery when charging.
USB socket on the charger stand - another charger stand can be connected at the same time.
No need to add extra power supply - get the power from the USB port of the Wii console.
Quality/Usability : With the flood of rechargeable battery packs hitting the market, there has been different styles and different kinds.
The Charge 'N Play is a little different than all the other rechargeable batteries. The Charge 'N Play comes with a rechargeable battery and a dock. The dock has a USB cord that can plug into a USB port whether it be your computer or your Nintendo Wii.
The dock has two hooks on the left side that can attach to another dock (of course they need to be the same type). The right side has two openings for those hooks to be clipped onto another dock. On the front of the dock is a small LED. The LED is red when the battery is charging and blue when it is done.
What is unique about the Charge 'N Play is that you can either charge the battery with the Wii-mote or you can just charge the battery pack. Other rechargeable battery packs on the market require the battery to be on the remote control in order for it to charge.
The dock has two levels. The "upper level" is for the battery pack and Wii-mote. If you have a controller glove also known as rubber skin on the Wii-mote, you will need to remove it or lift the bottom high enough that it does not block the dock. The "lower level" is big enough just to fit the battery pack. The battery pack stays in place by pushing its clip itself against the upper level. Sometimes it does take a few tries to get it correctly in place. Once in place, it is snug and wont come out.
Charge time is approximately 2 hours. Once fully charged, the battery lasts for about 3-4 hours on continuous play and approximately 5-6 days with on and off play (approximately 30-60 mins a day).
Conclusion : Overall, the Wii Remote Charge 'N Play as I know of posting this review, is the only charger that allows you to only charge the battery without the need of the Wii-mote. Battery life is fairly decent. It would have been nice if the LED light turned off once the battery was fully charged. The idea of allowing another dock to be attached is good.
