just reserved, missed out last time at this price

I reserved one last time and was mad that the price went up....I did not pick it up on principal! I will re-order now though !

£9.99 buys a LOT of Duracells in Costco.

If the Wii needed another cooling fan, Nintendo would have included one.
#5
Worth a repost as it went up to £12.74.. thanks bargainhunter2009 :)

Not only will your Duracells eventually run out, but I'm pretty sure two rechargable batteries are less harmfull to environment than a bucket full.

Yes, because console manufacturers always get the cooling systems correct the first time around (Microsoft proved that with the XBOX 360, right? right?).
More cooling is never a bad thing, as long as it's not too noisy.

Don't forget your coat.

True about the xbox, but there are no heat issues with the wii

There will ALWAYS be heat issues with silicon processors. Just becuase there's no known problems doesn't mean some extra cooling wont extend the life of your console.
#13
You can always turn the fan off and / or the led off - switch at the back!

The fan in mine is getting very noisy so prob not working as well as it should. This will help.

Also doesn't mean it will extend the life either. Nevertheless, back on topic and voted hot for this:)

Got one of these last time they were on offer, well worth the price, never have to search for batteries again.:roll:
#17
Does anyone own one of these as I'm wondering about the reviews I've read about the nunchuck cables having no storage and difficulties charging the remotes in the unit.

Could anyone advise on how practical/useful it is in their experience please?

Also, I picked up the bundle this morning from Asda but haven't opened it yet. What size and how many batteries do I need for the remotes etc? How do the rechargable battery packs work - clip into the wii remote? Is there a separate section on the dock just for the batteries on their own?

Novice here, bear with me. :roll:

Thanks in advance and voting hot anyway before I decide whether or not to get one.

They look cool, shame you have to remove the rubber things off your controllers (if you have them) to get them to fit in the chargers!

Good price. However I prefer the option of separate AA rechargeable batteries. I have 4 remotes and would have to buy extra rechargeable packs, which I guess are probably as expensive as the unit itself. Also as pointed out, the rubber sleeves will get in the way on this if you use it as storage/charging.

Another thing to consider is the charge/discharge cycle the battery packs are subjected to. Most rechargeable battery type work best and last the longest when charged and fully discharged, rather than charged, partially discharged, charged again, discharged a bit, charged some more, etc.

Have seen reports when I was thinking about getting one originally that said the battery life was poor. You could get around the problem by simply charging and then leaving the remotes off the unit until they ate flat, however that somewhat negates the storage facility. Also with sets of AA, you can simply have an extra pair charged and ready to replace when a remote dies, without having to wait for a pack to charge or have a spare pack, at extra cost.

Just my take on it, go for AA rechargeable and a charger.

That's what I do just now, the only problem is I either forget to charge the additional set, or I misplace the batteries. Nothing more frustrating that when you're in the middle of a game and your batteries die, and you have no more.

Alternatively get the wired control pad thingy...

I've had a wii for about 18 months and probably spent (well) over £30 on batteries in that time......I bought this unit about a month ago (ish?) when it was first reduced to £9.99 and IMO you can't go wrong at that price. You can store the nun chucks - some people think they look unsightly at the front (I leave mine in a drawer and get them out when needed). I tend to let them go as flat as I dare and then recharge to prolong battery life - although if people are coming over for a game I will make sure that everything is fully charged. So I guess I use it more for charging than for storage.

Biggest drawback for me is not being able to charge up a spare set of batteries for the wii fit board. Would also be no good if I had 3 or 4 wiimotes - luckily I only have 2 so its perfect.

Not used the fan and turned the led light off after 5 minutes (very annoying although I guess some people must like it)

I would thoroughly recommend - apart from anything else you are going to have to spend about £10 on batteries and when they are all gone after several months........you are going to have to pay out again. And again............

Hope this helps??

that is one seriously ugly piece of kit.

but voted hot anyway cos at least it does what it says on the tin, and is good for people with no appreciation for aesthetics

personally wouldn't have one if someone paid me to... makes the wii look like a spaceship

Yes, that is the one disadvantage about this kit, you got to pull off the fiddly protective sleeve to charge and store the controller in the base. :roll:

If I knew I wouldn't of bought it, Argos said you can't return this product if you don't like it, only if it is faulty. :x
