Users just have to drop the remote, with or without the jacket, onto either of the two docks to get started. As a bonus, there are two overhead USB ports for other gadgets like your mobile phone, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 controllers.

As a side note, the $35 PowerV Duo at first glance resembles a space battle cruiser from those sci-fi movies. The charger is bundled with a Nintendo DS USB cable, an AC adapter, and a pair of 800mAH Ni-MH battery packs for the Wiimotes.
