Later next month (Amazon says June 1st) Energizer will release a charging stand that uses induction technology to juice up your Wiimotes.  Induction you say? Yup, you won’t have to remove rubber sleeves and accessories of the same ilk to power up the system’s controllers.  Just place the Wiimotes on the dock and they’ll start to tax the proverbial grid accordingly.  But, much like Powermat, which we saw at CES this year, you’ll have to retrofit a special case or charging pack to take advantage of the tech and apparently induction charging takes longer than an AC plug.  Expect it to cost $50 when it goes on sale.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
