Sanyo announces a new contact-less charger set for the Wii remote
Last year already, Sanyo proposed a unique Eneloop contactless charger for the Wii and its Wii Remote, and drawing strength from their success, Sanyo decided to give to its Wii Mote battery a second run, this time a contact-less charging base capable to support the addition of the Wii Motion plus.
Like our previous generation of contactless charger set, this new set is capable of recharging up to 5 Wii remote (one by one) via your Wii USB port.

Tokyo, November 12, 2009 – SANYO Electric Co., Ltd. (SANYO) announces the release of a ‘Contactless Charger Set for Wii Remote,’ produced especially for Nintendo Co., Ltd. (Nintendo)’s Wii Remote. The charger set can charge one or two Wii Remotes, by accessing power through the USB port on the Wii console. The set can even be used when the Wii MotionPlus expansion device is attached to the Wii Remote to more accurately capture hand motion.
The Wii Remote uses two AA batteries, and there is a need to remove the protective silicon Wii Remote Jacket when replacing the batteries. Therefore, last year SANYO launched the ‘Contactless Charger Set for Wii Remote’ (N-WR01S), which uses a contactless charging method to enable the easy recharging of Wii Remotes just by placing them in the charger, without having to remove the Wii Remote Jackets for battery replacement.
Now, SANYO is launching a new charger set that maintains the advantages of the N-WR01S, while meeting the needs of users that want to charge two Wii Remotes simultaneously, or that want to charge a remote with the Wii MotionPlus still attached.
The new model is made under license from Nintendo, is equipped with a ‘charge failure detection function*2,’ and offers a high level of convenience and reliability for Wii users.
SANYO will continue to expand the “eneloop” series throughout the world so that people can comfortably adopt a new “lifestyle that values reusing and recycling” contrary to the popular “use and throw away” lifestyle often associated with common products like batteries.
