From the day I opened the box, the battery packs did not work in my original Wii controllers. Never did figure it out so I returned the product and rely on standard batteries only. Too bad though...it was a neat setup.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

What's not so great: Really long charge time
I got this for my son for Christmas, and started charging the remotes that day. I turned the charger off at night and turned it on the next day. It took almost TWO DAYS for both the remotes to charge completely! We haven't played with the Wii yet, so I have yet to see if they actually stay charged long enough. I hope the first charge was the only time that it'll take that long to charge them. I sent an email directly to Nyko, asking the company if this was normal, and never got a response back. That was the first time I have never received a response, not even an automated one.
I liked the look of the charger, and the remotes do not fall off for me (but I also do not have the silicone sleeve on the remotes. The instructions said that it might cause that charge time to be longer.)
I would recommend this to a friend!

What's great about it: simple to use
What's not so great: nothing yet
This is great to not have to remove the protective cover on the Wii controller. Easy to set up and use. Would definitely buy this again.
I would recommend this to a friend!

What's great about it: Took up no space
What's not so great: Magnetism not strong enough, charge not long enough.
I was disappointed in this product. After only a couple hours after setting it up the remotes fell of the stand (with motion plus and silicone sleeves attached). After a week, I noticed that it would every once and a while fall off. After having it charge for a while one of the remotes died in the middle of playing, so I feel like the charge doesn't last very long. It doesn't take up much space, but it looks cheesy and flimsy.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
