Thrustmaster T-Charge All NW Wii Remote Charging Stand Review

Not too long ago I had a look at the Thrustmaster T-charge+ NW charge and storage system for the Wii. I lamented the fact in the review that you had to remove the batteries to charge them up, which was inconvenient. Thrustmaster has been listening to games everywhere and has launched a new Wii remote and nunchuck charge and storage center called the T-charge All NW that charges the remotes without needing to remove the batteries. Read the full review for all the details.

Benchmarks

Features & Specifications
If you are a heavy Wii user that is looking for a good way to keep your Wii remotes charged up and save money by not having to replace your batteries Thrustmaster has recently released a new product called the Thrustmaster T-charge All NW, weird name but the product works great. What you get in the system is the Thrustmaster T-charge All NW stand which holds two Wii remotes and two nunchucks and keeps the wires out of site.

In addition to merely storing your Wii remotes, the Thrustmaster T-charge All NW includes two sets of AAA batteries that are rechargeable without having to remove the batteries from the remotes like you had to on previous Thrustmaster Wii chargers. If you worry about battery life since the Thrustmaster T-charge All NW uses AAA batteries and the Wii remotes use AA sets by default, the fact that merely sitting the remotes in the cradle charges them, meaning they are always topped off makes up for the smaller battery size.

Two new battery doors are included with the Thrustmaster T-charge All NW that hold the smaller rechargeable AAA batteries and have the rear contacts for recharging to happen. The batteries last a long time and require four hours for a full charge and provide up to 15 hours of continuous use on a charge. If you have some higher power AAA rechargeable batteries around you can use them in the Thrustmaster T-charge All NW as well, the system is compatible with any AAA rechargeable batteries. The included AAA batteries are NiMH 900 mAh units.

Another nice touch is that the Thrustmaster T-charge All NW is designed with removable inserts in the Wii remote bays which you can remove allowing you to charge the remotes with the optional Protect NW non-slip sleeves on the remotes. The only available color for the Thrustmaster T-charge All NW is black, which is too bad. Personally, I would much rather have a white colored stand that matches my Wii.

Charging & Use
One the front of the Thrustmaster T-charge All NW are blue LEDs that tell you when charging is happening. When the batteries are fully charged the blue LEDs flash rapidly, I found this to be very distracting when you are trying to watch TV or a movie with the Thrustmaster T-charge All NW in site. It was so distracting that I finally removed the remotes from the charger just so the lights would stop flashing. It did not bother me when the remotes were charging and the lights were solid.

Perhaps in future releases Thrustmaster will make the light stay solid when at full charge, or simply make the light glow when charging and turn off when the remotes are fully charged. Other than the color and the flashing LEDs the Thrustmaster T-charge All NW is a fantastic device. It is a great way to ensure that your Wii remotes are always charged and ready to game, plus it keeps the wires from looking messy laying around on your entertainment center.

Verdict

Conclusion

Pros

  • Don’t have to remove the batteries to charge them
  • Easy to use
  • Everything you need is included

Cons

  • Black color stands out next to the white Wii
  • Flashing LEDs are distracting

Verdict
If you are looking for a fast and easy way to charge your Wii remotes and keep the wires from the nunchucks tidy, the Thrustmaster T-charge All NW is a great way to do it. The rechargeable batteries last a long time during play and charge in only four hours. A few minor issues keep the Thrustmaster T-charge All NW from being perfect, but overall it is a great accessory for your Wii.
