    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - Two batteries
    - Fan to cool the wii
    - Great little stand

    Cons:

    - Build quality on the batteries was very bad, one battery unit had the battery pack glued on skewed so it did not fit into the remote, de-glued and re-glued it properly



    - to charge the battery, the wii must be on as it uses the usb port



    - batteries are DEFINATLY not 2800ma, more in the order of 1000-1600



    - cant charge remotes with rubber jacket

    - remotes with strap are finicky to charge, since the spring contacts dont pertrude much

    OtherThoughts:

    To charge, the wii must be on, but that is not useful as when the wii is on you want to play.. get one of those AC->USB charger adapters and use that to plug the stand into it for charging, then you dont have to have the wii on to charge the controllers.

    Bottomline:

    The stand alone is worth the money, the batteries and such are just a bonus.
