Okay, so I've put about 38 hours into my Zelda file, and my brother has about 14 in his game. I've also spent about 2 hours playing my friend's Wario Ware.
So that's 54-56 hours total that my Wii remote has been on, and I've had to change the batteries three times already. Is this supposed to happen? What should the average Wii-mote battery life be with just standard Duracells? I can remember back in the day when I'd get 40 hours of GameBoy Pocket game time with just a pair of AAAs and now the Wii-remote is eating AAs like a woodchipper. I ask you, what's the deal?
Turn rumble off and you will notice a significant increase in battery life. I have changed out the batteries on my wiimotes maybe 3 times on the main used one and 2 times on the 2nd one. The 3rd one rarely gets used so its still on the original batteries.
You're saying that rechargables have more power...or I'll just save money...
Turn off rumble! I had no idea you could do such a thing!
I use cheap batteries from Ikea, i have a few boxes of them and they are mad cheap.
Here is how you turn off rumble http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/sys...ote.jsp#rumble
Nintendo doesn't recommend rechargeable batteries, but says if you want to use them, NI-Mh is the way to go. but, i have no real source, just internet links to a dead page from Wikipedia from the Wii-mote section. :|
BUT, thats what i have been using for a while now. ull save money as well.

You are right on the type, I'm just adding the link to the source from nintendo.com
Go to gamestop. Starting like 2 weeks from now they are selling a third party Nyko Wii Charge Station. It has 2 docks and 2 battery packs so you can charge 2 remotes at the same time. As a bonus it has 2 rubber battery covers in case you are one to break your television via wiimote.
mmmm... I'm not sure exactly what it is, but for thirty dollars I got a set of 4 rechargable batteries that have a 15 minute recharge time. They're Durecell, I suggest you get those, should be easy to find

Will do, sirs.
For now all I can suggest is to use name brand batteries. I was using dollar general for a while till I realized they lasted about 2 hours or so. My brother got me a 24 pack of duracells for christmas and Ive only used like 6 of them.
