Last night I returned home from PAX AUS 2014. Long story short, it wasn't perfect, but it was quite possibly the best weekend I've had this year. It was a lot of fun. If you'd like to continue reading, the long story is just below. Buckle up. This is gonna be...

DAILY MANIFESTO

NYKO Charge Station (Wii)

Posted on Friday, November 9 @ 21:46:35 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
With the Zombie Flu receding, and my tentacles less achy than before, Product-a-Day makes its triumphant return with another thumbs-up: the NYKO Charge Station for the Wii.

Seems like everything in the GR office has gone wireless these days - phones, keyboards, mice, remotes, internet, controllers, robots... and at least half of that stuff needs batteries. We switched to all rechargeable batteries a couple years ago, but that's not as simple as, say, your cordless phone that recharges every time you set it in its dock.

Enter the product that should have been a first-party Nintendo option (Wii premium, if you will) the NYKO Charge Station. This simple, elegant dock for your Wiimotes takes all the hassle out of switching batteries.

Even better, since they had to add metal contact points to it somehow to get the electricity in there, it comes with replacement battery covers that improve on Nintendo's. They have a real nice rubberized no-slip grip to help stop you from chucking your controller right through your fancy new HDTV.

Compact, elegant, and solid-feeling, this is a no-brainer recommendation. Pick it up when you grab Zack and Wiki or Galaxies.
