This is a great item to save several things, one being replacement batteries and two some place to keep you Wii Board without it getting knocked over all the time. The board does fit perfectly if you remove you sleeve (the same thing you have to do with most of the lesser expensive Remote Chargers on the market). This keeps the board in an upright position this is true, however it is much safer than getting knocked over and suffering a shock. If you feel unconfortable keeping the board upright, lay the unit on its side! It will still work fine. I was using the "EGZER" rechargeable batteries, but you either have to keep the unit up some place safe or just leave it laying around. This really is a very good idea for the Wii Board!!!!
The #1 question was "where do you want me to put the Wii Board?" Well here was the answer, you stand it up in the corner and it is safe and charged when you need it. This is the best accesory I think I have purchased for our Wii.
Keep your Wii Fit Balance Board neatly stored and full of energy with the Power Up Charging Stand from Mad Catz. Simply remove the battery cover and batteries from your Balance Board and replace them with the included rechargeable battery pack for hours of continuous gameplay. Two bonus USB ports free up space on your Wii console and AC power means the stand can be placed wherever it’s most convenient for you. After you’ve completed your workout or gaming session, just place the Balance Board in the stand and its LED indicator will let you know when the battery has been fully recharged, saving you the time, money and hassle of replacing expensive batteries.
