IGN takes a look at a handy and cool accessory for the Nintendo Wii console. It's a battery charge station made by Nyko, it includes a charge unit, a battery pack and a mod for the Nintendo Wiimote.
Rechargeable is the green way to roll, and Nyko wants to help you help the world. The peripheral maker is the first to market with a rechargeable solution just for the Wii, the aptly titled Charge Station. The kit consists of two rechargeable NiMH battery packs, silicon enhanced battery covers, and a wall powered charging cradle. The battery packs install simply and are secured by replacement covers with contact points for recharging the batteries. The covers sport a thin layer of ribbed silicon which feels good in hand and adds some grip to the slippery Wiimote.
