The Energizer Induction Charger for the Nintendo Wii is a flat panel charger for Wii remotes manufactured by Performance Designed Products. When you lay the controller on top of the charger, a magnet inside the charger aligns the controller and the charging indicator will turn solid red while charging. When the charging process is complete, the indicator turns green. A blinking light indicates the charger cannot connect to the battery.

Remove the Wii remotes from the induction charger.

Remove the silicone cover and battery cover from each remote.

Swap the batteries between the two Wii remotes.

Replace the battery covers and remote covers.

Place the controllers back on the induction charger.


If the light on the induction charger is still blinking, return the charger and batteries to the store, or contact the manufacturer for a replacement at 800-331-3844.
