well. it works. it's a bit touchy in the dock. it has a red or blue light. i'm assuming to tell you when charger is complete, but it stayed red while charging. then i wiggled it and it turned blue. hmmm..
in any case my remote is powered. woo!

i returned the dreamgear charger. no instructions, did't hold a charge and cust. service was an answering machine. I don't think they check it.

Get the Nyko one. Thats what I have. works great. I went through 8 AA batteries alone while playing Super Paper Mario.
For those tired of constantly replacing their AA batteries because of all the Wii-mote action, here comes a way to save some money on batteries (that is, if you end up spending more than $30 for batteries in your Wii lifetime).
The Nyko Wii Charge Station is now available for $30. The station includes two NiMH rechargeable battery packs that replace the two AA batteries normally needed to power the Wii-mote. It also comes with a 6-foot power cable, two rubberized battery covers and an LED indicator that lights up when fully charged.
A single battery will take 1.5 to 2 hours to recharge, and two Wii-motes will take 3.5 to 4 hours to charge, according to a recent review by IGN.
* The only problem with it, if you have one of the colored skins for you controller, it won't fit.

Wow, that's a fast charge. I saw that yesterday at FYE, but was going to look for reviews. Cool. That sounds like what I was hoping for. I bought a messenger bag with my return money, but I'll snag that badboy asap. I'm sick of replacing batteries.

Thanks for the heads up.
