The Good Simultaneously charges four Wii remotes; includes rechargeable Energizer batteries and custom covers; slits allow for charging with wrist straps connected.

The Bad Remotes need to be adjusted to ensure charging contacts touch; battery covers not rubberized.

The Bottom Line A few design flaws with the Energizer 4X Charging System may have you better off just buying the company's rechargeable batteries separately.

We have looked at just about every Wii controller charging device ever constructed. From charging plates to docks, it's safe to say we've seen our fair share. We're now starting to see other companies throw their hats into the ring, including offerings from Energizer-branded PDP products. The Power & Play Charging Station wasn't the most reliable system we tested, and it only charged two remotes at once. With the 4X Charging System, the unreliability is still present, but at least we're now powering four remotes at once.

The 4X Charging System looks exactly like an angled knife block. There are four slots for controllers, complete with their own LED charge notification lights and narrow slits to accommodate your Wii remote's wrist straps. The rubber grips won't fit in these, so you'll have to remove them prior to charging.


The slits that run down the side of the station allow for the charging of remotes with wrist straps.

The station draws power from an AC adapter that gives you 5 feet of slack to play with. Everything is covered in a smooth white plastic that matches the Wii's finish.
