cheap quality – 6-in-1 Charging Stand for Wii (with two 2800mAh Remote Batteries) Reviews

posted by NicolasG on 04/12/2008 Certified Owner

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
Other:
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.
