Definately worth a punt for less than a fiver delivered I reckon. Got some great reviews on the DX site. Suppose it all depends on how often you use your Wii Fit.

$8.11 works out as £4.64 according to Yahoo Finance.

Better off with rechargeable batteries, in order to use the USB charger the wii has to be on, which is a waste of energy.

You should be able to unplug and charge via a PC's USB.

yep still on my originals from launch date also , and would use rechargeables when needed, not voting as some may see the point in having one and so in there case its a good price, just not for me .

I bought the handset re chargable unit form here and it was shocking, stick to rechargable AA's or alkalines.

Thanks all - just cancelled the order I made upon seeing this thread :thumbsup:

Used mine for about a month now , no problems , Hot deal , but never had a bad thing from dealexetreme anyway.

It claims to be 2800mAh but actually contains 4 AAA batteries so cannot be more than about 900mAh.

It could easily be four 700 mAh triple A's.

It depends if the battery pack is in series or parallel. If you connect the cells in series, the Voltage will add up ie, 4 1.2v AA cells in series will result in a 4.8v battery pack. However, current from the battery will not increase in series, so it will remain at whatever one cell is able to put out. For batteries with cells in parallel, the voltage remains at 1.2v, but the current will be multiplied by 4. No matter what, the power in the circuit remains the same (voltage x current) - it just depends on what the Wii requires.

In this case, I believe the battery pack is 4 AA cells of 2800mAh in series - hence the voltage multiplying to 4.8v, and the current remaining the same. From what I have read, the Wii Fit takes AAs, so this would make sense. I don't see how they could get 4.8v and 2800mAhs from AAAs.

I have got one it has 4 AAA batteries not 4 AAs so is definately not 2800mAh.
