Introdução

The batteries included in the packs are prone to failure and leaking. This guide will show you how to replace the batteries with better quality rechargeables.

  1. Remove battery pack from the Wii Remote and locate the two screws between the batteries.  Remove these and put them asside. The batteries used by the factory are underpowered 600mAh rechargeables.  I highly recommend replacing them with at least 850mAh ones, the higher the better.

    • While you are at it, clean the outer contacts and bend them out a little. This can help eliminate remotes having poor battery life.

Conclusão

You should now have a working battery pack. Insert back into the Wii Remote and place on the charger. Allow it to get a good full initial charge in order to extend your battery life.

Enjoy your "non-reparable" repaired induction charging system.

Wow, that explains it. So many complaints about the energizer inductive batteries dying quickly. They take a product meant for two AA and replace it with two AAA's. Yep, that'll limit your playing time...

Easy to do! Just waiting to see if it will charge. If not, it was worth the shot. Thank you!
