In for 4 thanks! I'll pair them with the 4 Flingsmash remotes from last xmas's Best Buy deal.
That's what I did. Right after I bought a couple of those, I found these for $10 at Meijer. I thought it was a super great deal. I really like my Memorex nunchucks. Plus they were both black, so it matched well Smilie

Question for you guys that bought one of these in the past.
I know it's supposed to be re-chargeable, as it's charging can you play wired with it? I usually like AA batteries in this type stuff because I can put in rechargeable AA's or use regular AA's. But if I want to play Wii and this device is NOT charged, how do you handle it. Do you have to wait 12 hours , 3 hours. But if you can plug it in and still use it as it's charging, then that is cool. I take it the dongle goes into the remote, hoping the wire to charge it can do double duty , charge and play at same time. Smilie
p.s. Come back fast, I put in order for a few and want to cancel if I find out , you can't use it if it's not charged and takes 3 hours to charge. I don't play wii everyday, sometimes once or twice a month, so I don't want to have to worry before hand about charging it. Also, does it hold a charge for a month or 2.
As stated before, the charging cable plugs into the USB port on the back of your Wii (or, I would assume, any USB port). I'm not sure that you can play it while it's charging, though. They seem to last a while, though. I've had mine since around Christmas time and maybe charged them twice. I'm not a heavy player, but I have a 3-year-old that likes to play games quite a bit.

dang! just bought an standard/OEM remote from NewEgg on Wednesday. Could have had 3 of these for the same price.
Did you get the whole package? These are just the nunchuks, so if you only got the remote from NewEgg, you can get these to go with it.

This is GREAT! One of my dogs chewed right through one of our nunchuk cords just 2 days ago....this is a very nice deal to replace them....plus we no longer have to worry about him chewing through the cord again!!!!! Smilie

I also scored a bunch of Wiimotes / Flingsmash games, so I have lots of them already. I own 2 oem nunchucks, but the cord is very restricting in certain games like Just Dance. I grabbed 4 of these so I will see if they are worth a damn. Stop! Hammer Time! Thanks and repped!

Don't know about this one but I tried the Nyko version last year and it was carp. It lost connection all the time and didn't work at all with Wiibrew stuff for some reason. Maybe this is better.

it might have been your rechargeable battery. Alot of the cheaper ones and many of the battery packs have that problem. try it with a regular battery.

It sounds like it has its own built-in battery.

I just got one yesterday, and I'm not willing to break it apart. It doesn't appear to be very easy to open up, so I would not count on replacing the battery very easily.

ok, thanks for letting me know. I think I'll pass and wait for some wired nunchuks.

After 2 days, I bit. Usually for $5 spent I'll give things a try. $6 isn't that bad. Reviews on it are split. I play HB more than my games and I heard this prob might not work. I could always use it for reg games. 2835 sold. Do they really have that much? thx and repped
