For the price, excellent. – Dual Battery Charging Station with 2800mAh Rechargeable Batteries for Wii (White) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
The life of the rechargeable batteries is shorter than that of good standard batteries meaning the kids play shorter. Charging is quick (about an hour and a half). Saves a fortune in normal batteries!
Cons:
Needs frequent charging. Charging can only be done with the silicone cover off (kids then don't put it back on which means risking a destroyed controller when it accidentally flies through the air) The charger works via USB. Unless you have more than 2 controllers it's pointless using the Wii to run it. Not everyone has pc they leave on all day. (iPhone charger works well though....)
Other:
Quality of the charger isn't too good, but it works.
Bottomline:
Has saved me a fortune on batteries, and the charging "pauses" are welcome too!
