UK hardware developer Blaze
is coming out with a USB-charged Wii remote battery. It plugs right into your Wii's USB ports (or any other USB socket I imagine) and then right into the bottom of your Wii remote, using a tiny port in the surface of the battery.
Nyko has offered some very handy charge solutions for a couple years now and they're set to bring out an induction charger soon, but Blaze's pack lets you charge while using the Wii remote, so it's a play and charge kit of sorts. I've had my Wii remote die on my in the middle of a marathon gaming session, so hopefully Blaze's battery pack makes it across the pond where I can get my hands on it.
