Thanko Releases USB Wii-mote Charger

Thanko Japan, I thanko you for this kick-ass USB Wiimote charger so I don’t have to buy new batteries every few days. The Thanko charger comes with a USB cradle, nickel battery and a new battery cover so you know, you can charge those new batteries. The new batteries provide up to 25 hours of juice and recharge to full capacity in 3.5 hours. Charges from any USB port and has blue LEDs to let you know when it’s done charging.

Launching in Japan at the end of the month, you can pick up a pair for $55 or a single one for $30.
