The Good Wirelessly charges Wii remote batteries with magnetic charge pad; LED light charge indicator; works with other console controllers.

The Bad Changes the overall shape of the Wii remote; a bit expensive.

The Bottom Line The TouchCharge Kit is a hassle-free way to charge your Wii remotes and is recommended for anyone who wants to get rid of the wires associated with recharging controllers.

We've seen plenty of attempts by third-party accessory manufacturers to revolutionize the way we charge our controllers. From cradles to docks, we've definitely tested our fair share of chargers good and bad. But perhaps the most interesting of all the charging tech we've seen comes in the form of the Psyclone TouchCharge Kit.

Instead of placing your remote in a charging cradle, the TouchCharge Kit provides you with a magnetic charging pad. You simply place the entire controller--or just the battery itself--anywhere on the surface of the pad and the built in LED light will display the status of the charging process. The TouchCharge Kit is also available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The latter comes with adapters for the controllers as its batteries are not user-removable. Conveniently enough, you can buy just the batteries or adapters for each console you need them for. Various circular metal contact dots on the bottom of these batteries and adapters allow for the charge to pass, also acting as magnetic placeholders.
