    I have bought two of the exspect wii fit battery packs rechargble while connected to your computer by a lead. The first one the red light constantly flashed and it never worked at all so I sent it back. The second one they sent has been charged once the red light stayed on constant this time and it worked in the wii fit board for one go! so recharged again for a couple of hours and whilst on my computer could smell burning! thought it was coming from outside looked around the room and realised it was smokey inside! and the battery pack has begun to melt while on charge attached to my computer!!! Dont buy this one is going back with a very big complaint. I could of gone to bed and not woken up the next morning.

You may want to send an email to customer.services@gem.co.uk. In the meantime, try keeping it plugged into the USB port for at least an hour, or perhaps overnight. See if the light stops flashing and stays on. Then try plugging it back into the Wii Fit unit.

My personal suggestion is to return the charger and battery and buy a 15-minute charger and four more NiMH AA batteries than you need for all of your accessories. Not only are AA batteries compatible with all your accessories, but you won't be out a gizmo while it's needing to be charged.

Good luck!

Hi, Here is the relevant text as found in the instructions:"Plug the mini USB end of the supplied USB charge cable to the charge socket on the Sonic Screwdriver Remote Controller (SSRC) and other end [ their error, not mine -KP ] of the charge cable to the Wii console. A red LED charge indicator is on when charging. When the battery is fully charged, the red LED automatically turns off. Charge time is between 2 to 3 hours and a fully charged battery has between 6 to 12 hours of playtime.""The Wii Console must be ON for the SSRC to be able to recharge its battery. It will not recharge when the Wii Console is OFF or in Stand-by Mode."" Charging : LED lights up"" Full charge : LED goes out"Hope this works for you. Keith Pyne

I have a wii fit board, when you power it up, it


Had the same problem. It's a sync problem.
First, best to double check you have fresh batteries.
Next, turn the board upside down and remove the cover from the battery compartment.
Open the small hatch cover on the front of your console unit.
Now start wii fit from the disk menu item.
Next, press the small red button inside the balance board battery compartment. The blue lights will blink for approx 3=5 sec.
While they are blinking, press the red button on the console (in the hatch compartment).
This should re-sync your board and the light stays lit.
Good luck.

I had been using my Wii fit without any problems until I got (1) a rechargeable battery pack and (2) Wii fit plus. Since then, I don't get very far until the blue light on the balance board starts flashing...


the rechargeable batteries have a rating system, for how long they last.
a battery with 850mHa will last a far shorter time than 1 with 2500mHa rating.
and non rechargeable batteries have a much loger life span than all rechargeables.
Also rechargeables are 1.2 volt instead of 1.5 volt and will aleays run down alot quicker.

New Batteries inserted but light at the front still wont come on


The rechargable battery pack must have been faulty, when we put in ordinary batteries it worked.

to recharge your rechargeable batterie you plug the holder that hold the batteries into the wall, then a green light should turn on. That should help you out! :)

My wi power source just quit


Guest: Rechargable batteries are only 1.2 V each. You should get up to 4.8 V.

I highly suggest running your Wii Fit on nothing other than Alkaline batteries. I've had my Wii Fit for over 3 months and still use the original batteries.

If you feel like you need rechargables, that's fine, but I recommend a quality set of regular AA rechargable batteries that comes with a quick charger (IE: 1-hour). Stick to the same brand of batteries and buy enough for each Wii-Mote, Wireless Guitar, Wii Fit Balance Board, etc.

Amy - Keep in mind that your Wii Fit balance board will ONLY turn on when your program (ie: Wii Fit) is loaded and ready to go. Since the balance board takes up one of the four available Wii-Mote channels, make sure all but one Wii-Mote is turned off before starting Wii-Fit.

Problem with wii fit rechargeable battery pack


make sure the battery charger is connected, and that the port connections are tight, other than that I would say you have a faulty charger.

If you remove the rechargable battery pack and put regular batteries back in, are you still having the same problem? If so, I would recommend returning the rechargable unit and replacing it.

For what it is worth, I've been using my Wii Fit board for nearly a month on 4 alkaline batteries and have not had any problems.

I recommend rechargeable NiMH batteries with a 15-minute quick charger. Always have four more batteries than you need in your machine, ie: if you have a Wii Fit, a Nyko Wireless Sensor Bar, and two Wiimotes, then you should have 16 batteries total (4 + 4 + 2 + 2 + 4 spare).

Good luck!

Wii fit board rechargable battery pack


Have you tried regular batteries, the UK model takes 4 AA batteries or is the US model different? Cheap third party battery packs made in China are rubbish and never work for long if at all.
