5 Well worth the money, cool looking too!Ade666 | 20/02/2008 | See all Ade666's reviews (9)Top 100 Games Reviewer I`ve read on other reviews that the charger will not work unless the Wii is switched on. Rubbish!The Wii has three power modes: On - green light, Standby - orange light , Off - Red Light.If you press the power button on the console once, or hold it down on the Wii-mote, then the console goes into standby.This is the mode it uses when accessing the internet to distribute your Mii`s when you`re not using it. In this mode the charger will charge fine. The blue LEDs around the charger even operate to show it is getting power.There is a red LED next to each charging bay to show that the Wii-motes are charging. I assume this goes out when they are done, but mine havent finished fully charging yet.Anyway - the back of the box states that it stops charging once the batteries are full, so I guess the light does go out.I can also get the Wii-motes into the charger without removing the strap, you do have to lift up the bottom of the skin though ( if you have one ) , but that is no real problem.Great device , and has cool blue LEDs, and everyone loves blue LEDs!Get one today!
