Buying loads of AA's doesn't seem very attractive.  Does anyone have one of the 3rd party charging stations for wiimotes and would recommend it?  (Something like this?

There are rumors of a Nintendo solution but nothing concrete yet.  I am surprised it didn't launch with the console.

I don't have one myself, but this product has really good reviews on Amazon:

Wii Charge Station

Personally I use rechargeable AA batteries and that is working fine for me.

I have the charger mentioned by JSL and it works as advertised.

The Wii Charge Station works great for me, though I wish it would shut down when it's done charging.

I've been sorely tempted to buy one of these, but the only place that had it was overstock.com which gave me pause.

However, if you say it works then I say I'll be saving a fortune on AA's

I have this one

http://www.play.com/Games/Wii/4-/3320243/Joytech-Wii-Power-Station/Product.html

The  nanchuck holders are a waste of time but the actual unit is good. I quite like how third partys have taken the compartment lid - created there own with the charging contacts and so charging is just a case of placing it in the station

I have it as much to save having to hunt around with batteries as saving money.

You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

I picked the Nyko one up a week or so ago and think it is great.  I originally had bought some Energizer rechargables, but what I didn't know when I bought the kit was that you had to have all 4 batteries int he charger for them to charge up (at least it looks like it is that way since the charge light never lights up unless I put all 4 batteries in it).  So, I got this since the wiimotes are never going to drain equally.
