Features
The successor to the worlds best-selling charging solution for Wii™ has arrived with Nyko’s Charge Base IC. The Charge Base IC uses high end induction technology that allows for contact-less recharging meaning that silicone sleeves, Wii Motion Plus™ and other attachments do not need to be removed before placing in the Wii Remote or Wand in the dock. The Charge Base IC dual port rapid recharging dock features 2 unique cradles that magnetically hold each controller, suspending and displaying it inside in the dock. Each cradle also glows indicating the charge status of the NiMH rechargeable batteries which can both supply up to 10 hours of playtime on a full charge. The Charge Base IC conveniently plugs into any wall outlet allowing for the fastest recharging time possible, and with Nyko’s Port Free AC adaptor with an outlet pass-through port, the unit won’t take up any additional power outlets. The powered USB port in back also allows you to easily recharge USB compatible devices. The Charge Base IC’s stunning and unique design matches the Wii aesthetic and is perfect to display and charge your controllers.

2 out of 5 eggsnot as good as the other base

Pros: you don't have to take the sleeves off the wii motes to charge the batteries.
has a nifty on off switch.
the power plug is the best i have ever seen, you can plug other devices into the back of the plug.
the usb charger on the back of the charging base has turned out to be very useful.

Cons: the batteries didn't last. i the batteries quickly started loosing charge after 3 months now my batteries don't last more than 20 minutes per charge. when i put the batteries on to charge, the charges displays the batteries as charged with in a minute. i have had the other nyko charger for a lot longer and the batteries on the other charger are still going strong.

Other Thoughts: i have gone back to just using rechargeable AA batteries. with AA rechargeable batteries, you can use the batteries for other devices. and you aren't stuck with batteries and charger that are useless outside one device.

induction charging causes a lot of heat and i have read that induction chargers/batteries (for all devices) have reduced life span. i also think nyko's quality is slipping. my first charger is 3-4 years old, but my brother's new base charger is already having problems.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great when batteries are good.

Cons: Batteries shipped with unit are no good.

Other Thoughts: I have ordered and returned three complete units as the batteries were DOA. I emailed NYCO with no response. I then called several times and did leave a message for them. They called back and said they would send free replacement batteries. They did this, however the cases were black, not white. Fine with me as at least they work now. Would not order these as apparently they are shipping a batch of bad batteries.

1 out of 5 eggsTrash

Pros: Its got pretty blue lights.

Cons: Batteries hold a charge for about 20-25 minutes of game play. I gave it to a friend who wanted the inductive charger out of it. He opened it up and said the thing was a fire hazard. NYKO doesn't respond to emails or phone calls. Was gonna cost me more to RMA it then to trade it in.

Other Thoughts: Apparently all the soldering inside it was sloppy. My friend uses it to charge his Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone, but only after he redid most of the boards soldering.

Save your money and go get a set of rechargable AAs. I have a 15 minute charger and they last nearly as long as plain alkalines. Problem Solved.

5 out of 5 eggsNYKO Charge Station IC for Wii

Pros: Great product support, great product! stays on charger even even with Wii Motion Plus! adapter and Nunchuk attached.

Cons: apearently some units ship with faulty batteries. They are appearently going to come out with replacement batteries for the unit at some point. they have the replacement batteries on the support site, but a search of their product list reveals nothing. any way, when it comes out it will be listed as:
Battery Kit IC (White) SKU # 87049

Other Thoughts: I purchased this unit at Sam's Club or Cost co two or three years ago. aside from short battery life everything seemed to be fine. Until I purchased Skyward Sword. The battery didn't even last 15 Mins. I looked on the manufactures page and called the number listed on the support page, dialed 6 for support, and talked to a technician. Tech support said my problem was likely an issue with the batteries. Even though my unit was several years old, they said they would exchange battery for FREE! Great product support, great product!

1 out of 5 eggsDefective. Terrible customer support.

Pros: None.

Cons: Ordered two chargers for Christmas. Out of the four sets of batteries received three did not hold a charge. Newegg replaced both chargers. On the two new units, only two batteries work, the other two do not hold a charge at all. If you order thru Newegg, the chargers cannot be returned for a refund, only for a replacement. Be careful before ordering. I e-mailed Nyko three times, no response at all. Tried calling several times just to be connected with an answering machine. Still waiting for a callback. See other reviews before ordering this charger. You will not be able to get a refund.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective Charger

Pros: Product looks good

Cons: Won't charge with silicon sleeve on. With silicon sleeve off, still won't hold a charge.

Other Thoughts: Just received product from Newegg. Speedy delivery. However, the product is defective. Tried charging with silicon sleeve on, but won't charge (LED stayed green). Took sleeves off and both batteries seem to be charging (blue LED). After 16 hours, charger still indicate batteries are charging (strange??). Took one wiimote off the charger and tried pressing a button, no response, no blinking. Tried other wiimote, no response, no blinking. Both batteries won't hold a charge even though the charger indicate they are both charging. Requesting a replacement. Hopefully, won't get another defective product. However, Newegg has been awesome througout the RMA process with great customer service.

3 out of 5 eggsNice Product-bad battery

Pros: Very stylish charger.
Hold remotes when not in use.
USB charger for other products

Cons: One of the battery packs won't charge beyound 1.3v. Won't work in any remote.

Other Thoughts: I usually don't praise or complain about stuff I buy, but I have no way of replacing this battery and don't want to buy another charger. I would have loved to give this product 5 stars.

2 out of 5 eggsBatteries do not work in all remotes

Pros: Nice set up charge by induction

Cons: Both batteries would not work in one of the remotes that I had. Remotes are identical. Followed suggestion by Nyko to bend a tab up on the battery to make better contact with the connector in the remote, but the tab just broke off! Don't buy

1 out of 5 eggsDead Batteries

Pros: Works great while it works.

Cons: Batteries died after 6 months. No replacement batteries available unless you buy a new unit. I think it is cheaper to use disposable batteries at this rate.

1 out of 5 eggsWii Charger MIA

Pros: Don't know.....

Cons: My order went missing apparently, I ordered this on the 18th with rush processing and 3 day shipping and it never made it, worse still no tracking number, chatted with a new egg associate and told that it was shipped seemed good enough but here we are on the 25th and nothing, I had ordered some other things hours before this on the 17th and those made it on time no special shipping.

Other Thoughts: Oh well what can you do..... Merry Christmas.
