Energizer Power & Play Station for Wii and Wii U
Not what I was expecting
I should've been tipped off when I saw that on the bottom of the charging station it has an indicator light for when an error occurs. Why would you need a light for that unless it happens often? One battery charged up beautifully. The other one. Well it's still flashing me. I know I could probably send it in and get a replacement, but who's to say that one won't act up too? Since of course they have to put it on the charging system that it could happen. Seriously not that good.
Uh oh, third party has messed up again
I got my charger a month a go an it won t hold a charge! It would be plugged up for hours, maybe the lights would flash, but it won't charge. Don't buy it, its my opinion but seriously, energizer should just stick to batteries.
Worst product to date
I purchased the item and it worked fine for the one remote I had at the time. I several months later purchased another remote and when I placed the second batter in the new remote it would not charge. Come to find out the second batter was bad and energizer does not recognize the product number for the model that carries their name. I would strongly not recommend this product to any real gamer.
Do not waste your money.
I bought this when I purchased my Wii. It worked great for three months then the red flashing lights of doom started. I read online that if you switch the batteries in the Wii motes the problem would be solved. Nope. Lights are still flashing and the batteries won't charge. Don't bother buying this, it's easier just to throw in new double A's.
This product worked fine for a few months, and then the battery pack pooped out on me. And it wasn't the wiimotes, they still work!
Good If You Want A Charger Which Only Lasts2Months
I purchased the energizer version of the wii-mote charger after I previously owned one by Nyko. After the Nyko one died and I purchased the Energizer one, I was ecstatic at first with how well it was working.
After using it for about 2 months on and off (as I playing games isn't an often occurrence for me), the batteries which were supplied with the energizer charger are no longer holding a charge and the base station merely flashes red indefinitely.
I would not suggest this product to anyone unless you want to replace your charging station multiple times a year.
Bad value, fair design, while it worked for the short time, it performed as it should... although it was very VERY brief.
Keeps working well
I have had this particular charging station for about a year now. It works very well! It never gets hot, includes the batteries, and you don't have to remove the wrist band to put it on the charger like some of the others. The most important thing I could say about this is that even after steady use for a year the batteries still hold charge EXTREMELY well. I have friends with charging docks that are different brands and their remotes don't hold a charge for more than one night. Even though it may not be the cheapest model out there I feel that it is the best deal and will last you! I hope this has helped you in making your choice because after a year I would still make this purchase all over again!
Worked great for like a half a year. then it starts flashing red. must be a Microsoft brand. Do not get this PLZ. save you receipt if you do!
piece of C#*P
i bought this energizer charge and play for my daughter after the the original wii charger went. this is a total waste of money that only charged her controllers twice before going haywire. when you put the controllers in now, all is does is flash red lights like a strobe. this is both sides. i wouldn't recommend this product to my worst enemy....then again, maybe i would.............
Be Wary of Lemons
I bought this quite some time ago. This unit did not live to my expectation. I originally bought this at Gamestop (new) along with my Nintendo Wii. This product comes with the station, two batteries along with specialized lids for your Wii in order for them to charge in the station. The color of the lids are white which makes your controllers weird if you have any other colors. After a couple of hours of playing the Wii controller went dead and I tried charging it in the station, only ONE of the sides worked and charging it takes quite a long time compared to buying rechargeable batteries and unit and putting them into the Wii controllers. I told Gamestop about what happened and they were more than happy to give me a new one but it happened again. Maybe my luck is bad but I don't think I would purchase another one after these two incidents. Consider other products before buying this, they might cost a little more, but a little more goes a long way especially when this one has a very high tendency of being broken.
