We don't know if it's the motion sensing or the Nunchuk two-for-one peripheral design, but the Wiimote's battery life is pretty miserable. The default Xbox 360 wireless controller's batteries lasted at least twice as long as the Wii's, forcing me to change batteries twice while going through Zelda. Now with Joytech's rechargeable Battery Pack, that's no longer a problem.

The Power Station has slots for two Wiimotes and two battery packs, plus a sort of docking device for your Nunchuks as well. The other side seems to be USB-compatible, so you can grab one of the PowerBlocks and charge this from any USB port—even the Wii's own USB ports.

Twice thru Zelda? Is that right?

I had to do the same thing...but that includes many hours of Excite Truck, Red Steel, some time with Ecco the Dolphin and we can't forget Bomberman '93. All that in about 2 battery changes.

What are you doing with your batteries?

Is it that hard to use rechargeable AA batteries? I mean you can get a set of 4 with a CHARGER from Target (energizer) for $20.
