    Rev Review: Wii Double Charger & Nunchuk Stand

    Wii Double Charger & Nunchuk Stand
    Manufacturer: Panther Lord
    Site: Buy from Goldenshop
    Price: $19.00


    Overview : Charges two Wiimotes at the same time as well as hold one Nunchuk.

    Features:
    • High quality 3rd party product.
    • Comes with 2pcs of 1800mAh rechargeable batteries for the Wii remote controls - no need to take out the battery when charging.
    • No need to add extra power supply - get the power from the USB port of the Wii console.
    • 2pcs of Wii remote controls can be charged simultaneously.
    • Extra space for storing the Nunchuk.
    • Comes with a extra USB socket for other device.
    • Light indicators to show the charging status.
    • No need to take away the hand straps when charging.

    Quality/Usability : Like majority, if not all of the Wiimote charging stations, it draws its power from a USB port whether it be from the Nintendo Wii or from your computer.

    The Wii Double Charger & Nunchuk Stand gets its power from the USB port and includes two (2) 1800mAh rechargeable batteries. Each battery has an opening to access the SYNC button easily.

    The USB cord is attached to the charging station. On the left of the dock is a holder for one (1) Nunchuk and to the right of it are two docks for two Wiimotes. In between the Wiimote docks are two LEDs. This will tell you when the Wiimotes are charging. When the LED lights is green, the Wiimotes are done charging. When the LED lights are red, then the Wiimotes are charging.

    Whats makes this different charging station different from the rest is that you do not have to take the wrist strap off in order to charge. You can actually just leave it on and charge. But you still have to take off the silicone case on your Wiimote if you have one on.

    Charging took about 2 hours but the batteries lasted as long as it took to charge. The batteries lasted about 2.5-4 hours.

    Conclusion : Overall, the Wii Double Charger & Nunchuk Stand isnt any different then the current charging stations out on the market. But the ability to charge without having to remove the wrist strap is a plus. The lack of play time kind of hurts the Double Charger Station.

    It would be nice if they did a 4 x Wiimote charger! I've got 4, so 2 are charged all the time and the other 2 eat batteries like I eat pot noodles!

    Not many people have 4 remotes as on average, people usually have 2. So manufacturing a charging station with 4 batteries and slots would not sell much nor worth the production costs.

    Same here but thats how they designed it. I guess that there is at least one person using it, so include only one nunchuk. Not everyone has a 2 player.

    Nunchuck's don't need to be held on anything, they can just be stored by wrapping the wire around them.

    then why have a slot for one in the first pace? if your gonna put 2 wiimote slots in then you need either 2 nunchuck slots or none at all!
