Konnet's PowerV Quad Wiimote Charger Keeps Your Controllers Juiced

Nintendo's Wii is a fine console, and one that has sold extremely well worldwide. People love controlling their games with the Wiimote, but one thing they aren't fond of is replacing those Wiimote batteries on a weekly or monthly basis. For avid Wii gamers, there's really no excuse to overlook a new charging solution, one that can handle up to four Wiimotes at a time, even.

Konnet Technology has just introduced a new PowerV Quad, which charges four Nintendo Wii remotes without any wires, and better still, it's pretty attractive. The PowerV Quad uses induction technology to simultaneously charge 4 Nintendo Wiimotes, which means that users can simply rest the Wiimote on the PowerV (with or without removing Motion Plus and silicone casing) and it will charge instantly via the supplied Konnet rechargeable battery packs. Once the remote is placed, the Quad will recognize its battery strength and reflect charging status through a red or blue LED light: red LED means the controllers are charging, blue LED means the controllers are fully charged.

It'll also kill the charge process when each Wiimote is full, and priced at just $49.99 (including 4 rechargeable battery packs), it'll probably pay for itself within a few months.


Konnet Technology’s New PowerV Quad Wirelessly Charges Four Nintendo Wii Remotes

Modern Charging Station Employs Induction Technology to Charge Wiimotes with Ease and Elegance
TORONTO, Canada – April 27, 2010 – Konnet Technology, leading manufacturer of mobile entertainment and gaming accessories, has unleashed their PowerV Quad, an advanced wireless induction charging and storage solution.  Made with practicality and top design in mind, the PowerV Quad uses induction technology to simultaneously charge 4 Nintendo Wiimotes, minimizes cable clutter, and looks sleek enough to be mistaken for a piece of modern art.

The PowerV Quad features advanced wireless induction, which allows for a hassle-free charging process.  Simply rest the Wiimote on the PowerV (with or without removing Motion Plus and silicone casing) and it will charge instantly via the supplied Konnet rechargeable battery packs.  Once the remote is placed, the Quad will recognize its battery strength and reflect charging status through a red or blue LED light: red LED means the controllers are charging, blue LED means the controllers are fully charged.

If that’s not intelligent enough, the PowerV Quad will stop charging once the Wiimote is fully juiced or will recognize if an alkaline battery is being used, making it impossible to waste excess power on overcharging.  Along the same lines, its “Off/On” button enables it to be more energy efficient.

“The PowerV Quad lets you enjoy your Wii without the threat of losing remote power or having a cluttered living room,” says Christine Custodio, VP of Marketing for Konnet.  “It’s an effortless solution for today’s hip gamer.”

Priced affordably at $49.99 ($54.99 CAN), the PowerV Quad includes an AC/DC Adaptor cord and 4 rechargeable Ni-MH 800mAh battery packs.  Additional battery packs are available on Amazon.com for $19.99 ($24.99 CAN).  For more information or to purchase, please visit www.amazon.com.
