The Nintendo Wii is one of the most popular gaming systems on the market today. Its popularity extends from the traditional gaming crowd to families, young children and even grandparents. Its ease of use is one of the main features that make it so well liked. One of the biggest drawbacks to the Wii system is the short lifespan of the remote batteries. However, new advances in docking stations make it easy and inexpensive to keep your Wii remote charged and ready to use.
