Just purchased this item 4 months ago. We recently didn't use if for a month and pulled it out to use but the remote would not turn on. Tried to charge but it would not charge and just flashed red. The second charger lasted about 2 weeks longer then the first one that went out. Tried to buy replacement rechargeable batteries but still have not been able to find them. Found many other reviews with problems like we had after 3-6 months of owning it.
Wow! This is so cool, it's like something right out of star trek! You just put the wii-mote on the panel and it charges the included battery pack! No removal of rubber sleve, wii motion pack, or anything it will charge it by just placing it back on the panel. Really cool concept and very cool for the wii! Eat your heart out 360 and ps3!!!!
LOVE THIS CHARGER! It's flat which makes it compact to fit almost anywhere, and it magnetically pulls the remote to the charger, you can slightly feel it as you're putting the remote onto the charger. A light comes on red while it's charging, and turns green when it's done charging, and the instructions say you can not over charge on this unit, and that the remote can stay on the charger at all times, which is even better, I don't have to remember to check it and take it off at a certain time...PLUS, you can leave the silicone covers ON! WHAT A CONCEPT! This charger is compact and easy....PERFECT! If I could I'd give it TEN stars!
Bought this as a gift for my mom (she got a wii for Christmas), it's the coolest, sleekest charger I've seen yet! It works great, the controllers hold their charges very well, it's not an eyesore sitting in the livingroom and it was incredibly cheap. Every avid wii player should have one!!
Way much easier than using rechargeable AA batteries. Once the battery pack is installed, you no longer have to remove anything to recharge the controllers. A good thing to know though is: Just like with the Duracell AA/AAA 4 battery charger base, even though the batteries are fully charged (green) the mat will show not charged (red) if you immediately place a fully charged controller back on to the mat. Don't worry they're fully charged. It just takes a few minutes for the mat to realize they're charged, and definitely not good to run the batteries thru another charge cycle.
I have had this product for over a year now and is still running strong. however one thing I have noticed and recomend to people. be advised this charges by magnatism. thus meaning do not set on top or near metal shelves, tops, or some objects. it can fault out the charging and wont work at all. Keep that in mind before sending it back...
It worked a total of two times. Now when you put the controller on the pad it stays red for about 15 minutes and then blinks red and will not charge. This is true for both battery packs. This thing is junk.
Overall, these batteries work good and the inductive feature is great and works as designed with or without Motion+ and/or silicone sleeves.
The only problem I have encountered is that the reset button "bump" on the batteries is too high and inadvertantly resets the controllers in the midst of play. I simply removed the reset arm from inside the batteries, filed down the bump, and problem solved. Keep this in mind before you return them under warranty--it is an easy fix--maybe easier than driving to the store to do the return. But I deducted a star for this "issue"...
We moved about a month after buying this and then a few months after unpacking one of the batteries quit working. I would try another brand, but not the Energizer.
First of all, it took almost two weeks to get this. They actually had it back in stock at the store long before I got mine. Then, the second time I charged my remote, one of the batteries shorted out. It was easy to take it to the store and exchange for a new one; I was irritated that, after all the waiting, I endded up getting one from the store. This one seems to be a updated version and so far (about 10 days), so good. It does work well, and I'm glad I got one. If I get more than 2 remotes, I will buy another one.
This is a great charger, doesn't take up much space, and we love that we don't have to take the jackets off the controllers to charge! I would definately recommend this charger
Bought the item, the batteries that came with it were dead. No biggie. Took more than eight hours to charge. Didnt get more than three hours of gameplay in before I was notified that the battery was close to dead. I get more game play out of straight up batteries. Will be returning this.
Right after purchasing this, one battery began to flash red rapidly and never would charge. Thinking it was the 1 in a thousand defective ones and not feeling like taking it back for an exchange we went ahead and kept it. It was really neat just putting the wii remote on it to charge, instead of removing everything and the sleeve just to take out the batteries... 2 or so months later the other battery started doing the same thing... What the mess? Thinking that maybe the kids did something and we still liked how it charged when it did work. I was going to try and purchase replacement batteries, then I find out that people experienced the same thing in the reviews! I would just pick a different charger and save your money. This is just a piece of junk.
i got this so i can save money but one side would work and the other one will not no matter what i did it would not work maybe i just had a bad one but still i fell like i wased my money i took it back and got a wii game
It's a very convenient and easy and fast way to charge the wii remote control with no need to take the protector nor the battery out of the control... very nice
I bought this when I got our Wii three months ago for $30, thinking it was a cool idea and that it would save money. Well I recently lost one of the batteries and searched online and the replacement batteries are $12+ shipping! I then opted for the white one Energizer dual charging pack that is $20, since it does not make any sense to me to pay close to 20 for a replacement.
I have gotten this for christmas for your kids to charge the controls, the charge was good for the first couple of days. It was been only 5 days since we have had christmas at our house, and this morning during family time at our house, the controls sat all night on the charger, this morning the controls only lasted a half an hour. The last couple of days after putting the controls on the chargers, one would charge in full and the other one would not. The charging pad lights would blink on both sides instead only on the side we are charging. I would not get this product again!! Called the company and they would replace or we have to take back to store, we will have to see how this goes to get our money back or try it again, not sure if I would try it again??!!
Its size is great. There is no hassle, even to sync you don’t have to remove the battery cover. No overcharging just set the controller on the charger until your next use.
we got this for christmas to go along with the wii. its has been a great product! batteries stay charged for a long time! easy to use, just lay it down on the pad!
This product takes about 5 minutes to open, plug in, put batteries in and start recharging, and just putting the remotes on top of the recharger could not be easier! Hopefully the batteries will last a long time, but so far I am very pleased with the purchase.
