The Good Induction charging system; works with Wii MotionPlus; works with rubber jackets.

The Bad No grips on included batteries; a bit expensive; only charges two remotes at a time.

The Bottom Line The Energizer Induction Charging System isn't the cheapest charging solution we've seen for the Wii, but it's certainly among the most carefree and easy to use.

Editors' Top Picks

Now that Wii MotionPlus is already on store shelves, many existing Wii remote chargers are quickly becoming obsolete. Sure, removing the tiny attachment so that your Wii remote can properly charge sounds simple enough, but if you're a big proponent of the rubber jackets, removing that and MotionPlus can become quite a chore.

With the Energizer Induction Charging System, manufacturer PDP has come up with a way that allows you to charge controllers not only with MotionPlus attached, but also those sporting the rubber jacket as well.


The Energizer Induction Charger works with Wii MotionPlus and lets you charge remotes without removing their rubber jackets.
