Default Wiimote batteries

I rarely play my wii and it seems my wiimote batteries die within a week of putting in new ones. Are the rechargeable nyko brand batteries any good? Getting a bit sick of having to put in new energizers everytime I do want to play the wii. It seems that even when not in use that these things are draining

I use the Nyko's they're great, though I do have to mention that the rubber grips on the controllers get in the way of the Wii-Zapper accessorie. Energizer also makes recharable batteries for the wii, same concept as the nyko's. I'm not sure if they solved the problem the Nyko's have with the Wii-Zapper + custom backing.

In both cases you can't be using the wii-mote cushion thing while recharging.

Another vote for the Nyko's. When I had my Wii I used those and never had any complaints/issues.

The Nkyo's are what I have. Just leave them on the charger and you never have to worry about running out of juice when you're ready to play.

I use rechargable AA's for both the 360 and wii.. they last about 2 weeks and as long as you keep a couple extra sets of them charged up you should be fine

This is exactly what I do. Plus, you can use them in something else if you ever need to, unlike the Wii battery packs.

One thing to consider with the nyko/energizer solutions is that they give you a slick, nice looking way to store your wii-motes. That's half the reason why I bought them.
