Contact-Free Charger

Induction-based Wiimote reviver from SPEEDLINK gets distribution by Meroncourt.

Meroncourt 14th of August 2009 - With its Contact-Free Charger, SPEEDLINK offers a charging station that makes charging procedures as easy as possible. To ensure your WiimotesT are always fully charged, just place them on the charger - the charging station produces an induction field so you don't need to connect them using a cable. How many times have you found that supposedly charged battery packs don't supply any power for some unexplained reason due to faulty cable connections? With the Contact-Free Charger, faulty cable connections are a thing of the past. The charging process starts as soon as you place the WiimoteT on the Contact-Free Charger - and charging also works even if the WiiT console is switched off.

The Contact-Free Charger offers you the opportunity to charge up to two WiimotesT or battery packs at the same time. Silicone skins or NunchuksT can stay attached, and even the MotionPlusT accessory doesn't need to be removed during charging.

To use the Contact-Free Charger, all you need to do is replace the standard batteries in the WiimotesT with the supplied battery packs. During the charging process, the Contact-Free Charger's integrated LED will light up red, turning blue as soon as the WiimotesT are fully charged.

The Contact-Free Charger connects between the AC adapter and the WiiT console using the supplied T cable allowing the WiimotesT to be charged even when the WiiT console is off.

It takes up to four hours to fully charge a flat battery pack - which isn't any longer than a normal charger. After six hours, the power supply is automatically cut-off to prevent overcharging. Each battery pack provides up to 20 hours of gaming time - which means you have 2x20 hours in total.

The SPEEDLINK Contact-Free Charger for the WiiT is available from retailers now and has an SRP: £38.99
