In the beginning, there was the Wii, and it was good.
And it ate batteries, and that was not so good. So I bought the cheapest rechargeable batteries/charging station combo I could find, because I’m cheap, and… it didn’t really work. You had to peel the sleeves off every time, which was a pain, and the batteries didn’t seem to hold a charge. Which quite frankly was even worse.
And then we went to regular rechargeables, which meant we were constantly stealing batteries from cameras and remotes and such to feed the wiimotes.
But now, I’m picking up one of these Drop and Charge Stations where you don’t even have to take the skins off—close proximity is enough to charge the batteries. Today it’s just $11.99 shipped from Buy.com, which totally beats Amazon’s regular price.
And then maybe I can have my camera batteries back.
