Top 5 Wii Accessories

Updated on February 13, 2008

Wii Accessories

When searching for Nintendo Wii accessories, I've made it easy. Why would you search through tons of pages on various search engines, when you can just check out this page?

I've saved you time and energy from all the searching and debating. I mean I've listed the top 5 accessories for Wii that you could possibly want or need. I mean ok, maybe their my top 5 accessories, but I'm sure you'll find at least one that you like.

Wii Charge Station

The Wii Charge Station allows for easy charging needs. No longer will you have to search through every drawer to find extra batteries for your Wii Remote when the current ones start to go bad. Just, dock the remote for a little while. Take a break. If you're a serious gamer, of just prepared, you may even have 2 remotes, well charge them both at the same time with the Wii remote dock, or charge one while you play with the other.

Check the LED indicator lights to see when your remote(s) are finished charging.

Plus, think about it replacement batteries can get expensive, depending on how frequently you use your Nintendo Wii, so by using a charging dock to charge the existing batteries, it's worth the money you'll save on batteries.

Wii Dual Charge Station & Turbo Cooler

So, for a charging station, why not incorporate a cooling system for your Wii. With this package, you receive two battery packs that must be charged or 12 -24 hours before using them, but that's the same with just about any battery pack.

The Wii Dual Charge Station and Turbo Cooler is easy to hook up and works as soon as you open the box.

There is an LED light that you can turn on or off, using the On/Off switch (duh). The Blue LED light indicates that the Wii Remotes (yes, that's plural, meaning it charges two remotes at the same time) are fully charged. The Red LED light indicates that the remotes are charging.

Your Wii Remotes slip right into the charger without any hassels, but make sure move the strap out of the way in order to get a full charge to your remote.

When you plug the Dual system in, the fan funs automatically and does not turn off until you unplug the the power.

Wii Wireless Sensor Bar

The Wii Wireless Sensor Bar give you better functionality without the hassel of a wire or loss connection to the console. The infrared field allows you to play up to 25 feet away, which works well for wall mounted tv's and larger tv's.

The Wireless Sensor Bar is simple to set up, as it doesn't require any software or installation.

You will receive 4 AA batteries with the Wireless Sensor bar. You may be thinking, "that's ridiculous! FOUR batteies!" Well, don't worry, as it can receive up to 30 hours of battery life, so depending on how much you play your Wii, using the Wireless Sensor Bar, determines how often you have to purchase batteries. Plus, there is a unique power saving mode with an alarm to notify you of low batteries.

Wii 512MB Memory Card

Maybe not much of an accessory, but an important component to have with your Nintendo Wii. The SandDisk SD Gaming Memory Card is the must have for your Wii console. It is the only gaming memory card licensed by Nintendo.

This memory card gives you maximum performance to get the most out of your Wii. You can download and store games, save and edit games, and store photos.

I think of all the gaming memory cards, the SanDisk SD is definitely the must have in order to utilize the MLC memory and controller technology.

8 in 1 Wii Accessory Kit

So, I'm talking about Nintendo Wii accessories, I have to throw in the 8 in 1 Accessor Kit. It provides the Wii bare necessities that no Wii owner should be without.

You receive:

  • Controller Carry Bag
  • 2 Air Filters- internally protects your Wii console from dust and other particles
  • 2 Silicon Controller Sleeves- protects your controllers from dust, scratches, and to provide a non-slip grip
  • 2 Belt Handles- secures your controllers around your wrist, so that the controller never hits the ground in the even that it slips from your grasp
  • Controller Cord Hub- wraps the controller cords around for neat and compact storage

      The Wireless Nunchuck is a good accessory to have - no more being slapped in the face with the connecting cord! :)

      I would have to debate the 8 in 1 kit there. The Wii rarely has problems with dust and overheating, that's the 360's problem. Most of the stuff in it is just unnecessary. The Perfect shot should be up here.

      No the Zapper is good, but it's not really an accessories. It's more of a controller attachment to enhance the gaming experience, and I've already created a hub about Wii Controller attachments. I have a link for the hub in my links section.
