Wiimotes charging stations

Has anybody purchased one in Canada? The one BestBuy sells is only for a single remote, but I'd like to find one hosting two wiimotes. We run through batteries so fast on the Wii and I'm considering buying one of those. The Joytech Power Station or Niko Wii Charge Station are what I'd really like to find in Canada. So far, they're only on Amazon.com...

Futureshop has a 2 controller charger

I saw a 2 Wiimote charger with one battery at Futureshop a few weeks ago. It is listed on their website. It is made by Asid Tech. A second battery can be bought separately.

Ya, I saw that charger and heard very bad things about it. I'd rather have a charging station where I just put the wiimote on it and recharge them. Not have to remove the battery everytime and only charge one at a time like Asid does.

I saw that the Niko will be sold by BestBuy on May 1st so I'll wait for that.

Anyone order the Niko model at Best Buy? I pre-ordered it a good 2-3 weeks before it hit the stores earlier this week and it hasn't shipped. I'm guessing like most new wii peripherals, they'll be hard to get early on.

Update: It shipped this afternoon! Sweet. I'll post impressions after it arrives.

Wii Mote chargers

I bought a set of USB connection chargers a while back and returned 'em.
They just plain sucked. Didnt charge fully and the same complaint had been offered by others so... stay away from those.
