Nyko Wiimote charger now available

Good news, everyone! You can unhook those lemons from your Wiimote, because another option for replacing your AAs has come along. We don't mean to sound like we're plugging a product, especially since we really have no idea how well it works, but this is of interest to all Wii owners: the Nyko Wii Charge Station, last seen at CES, is now available for order online at Gamestop and EB in the US, for $29.99.

This item charges two Wiimotes at once, and, for added value, uses battery cover replacements that look to be grippier than the standard issue. Also, having your Wiimotes charging on a stand like that makes them look kind of like cordless phones. We don't know if that constitutes a feature or not.
