Sanyo has introduced the Contactless Charger Set for Wii Remote, the device plugs into the USB port of your Wii console and is compatible with the MotionPlus expansion device. One of the interesting things about this charger is that it uses a contactless charging method, which means you will no longer be required to remove the protective silicon jacket to charge your batteries.
The Wii Remote uses two AA batteries, and there is a need to remove the protective silicon Wii Remote Jacket when replacing the batteries. Therefore, last year SANYO launched the ‘Contactless Charger Set for Wii Remote’ (N-WR01S), which uses a contactless charging method to enable the easy recharging of Wii Remotes just by placing them in the charger, without having to remove the Wii Remote Jackets for battery replacement.
Now, SANYO is launching a new charger set that maintains the advantages of the N-WR01S, while meeting the needs of users that want to charge two Wii Remotes simultaneously, or that want to charge a remote with the Wii MotionPlus still attached.
The new model is made under license from Nintendo, is equipped with a ‘charge failure detection function,’ and offers a high level of convenience and reliability for Wii users.
SANYO will continue to expand the “eneloop” series throughout the world so that people can comfortably adopt a new "lifestyle that values reusing and recycling" contrary to the popular "use and throw away" lifestyle often associated with common products like batteries.
