Wii Ultra Wireless Sensor Bar
Went back to wired
The low battery indicator on our Ultra Sensor Bar has blinked during operation since day one. We've used brand new batteries and fully charged batteries, but we can't get more than 20 minutes of play before it stops working. We're trying to get a refund, but we had our system installed by a "professional," and he is giving us the runaround. We've gone back to using the wired sensor that came with our Wii.
Great...once hacked - AC - Battery Mod
I didn't think much of this bar at first, due to 4 brand new batteries being drained in 1 week. HOWEVER...........open this bad boy up and you see a red and black wire attach to the battery dock. Find an old cell phone charger and take USB end off and you have your positive and negitive wires. Splice those to your red and black wires on the Wii sensor bar for instant AC plug modification. This is WELL worth the price.
One of the best console accessories for its price
In my opinion this is one of, if not the best console accessory. Of course this item is going to drain your battery, it is 10 led lights powered by just a few batteries. If the battery drain is too much of a problem, buy rechargeable batteries. This item combined with rechargeable batteries makes it the best Sensor Bar available for its price. $15-$20 for the Sensor bar and $10 for the rechargeable batteries that you only have to buy once is a great deal.
Death to all batteries
This will completely drain 4 never used before batteries in 6-10 hours. I say that is not worth the wireless convenience.
Don't waste your money on this
After reading the reviews, I was prepared to go through a lot of batteries. I had broke my wired sensor bar in a move and was thrilled to find a used one for cheap. It worked for 5 minutes. Now, my remotes constantly need to be reconnected every 30 seconds. I am NOT happy.
You Will spend a small fortune in batteries
the sensor works great. it looks great as well. but it drains batteries like crazy and even with fresh batteries in it, it doesn't last very long. do not buy this product!
Design is a little too big. Looks great, but doesn't have the distance it claims, but has good width.
Great but can drain battery.
This Wireless Sensor Bar is great for the big rooms but can drain battery but since it drains it in about 14 hours of use for me any way i bought some rechargable batterys made by duracell it can last about 48 hours. but those type of batterys i use will run about $21 for batterys with a charger and $14 for a pack of 4 extras thease batterys realy pay its self off for the wii and can be used over and over again.
It works good for a while then you get tired of buying batteries for it if you leave it on for 3 to 6 hours it dies. And you have to change the batteries out right away after there they stop working so they do start to corrod inside the sensor bar. And after a while the metal starts to weaken on the inside where it holds the batteries in place and the metal eventally breaks or snaps off or deosn't bend out like it is supposed to do and the battery falls. You are better off buying the original sensor the wii came with it's not perfect with sensing but it will help you not to spend money on batteries.
I really want to rate this 10 stars but I just can't. I purchased this product in May to replace my original one I purchased in March that was knocked off my tv and stepped on :o( As far as usage and performance goes, it's awesome. You can set it for 1 or 2 hour usage which for me is perfect b/c it keeps me from having to be on my wii for so long. I use rechargeable batteries which isn't a problem for me w/ battery usage b/c I always charge my batteries after every use. My problem with this product began yesterday when I went to put in batteries to use it and play Michael Jackson The Experience. It would not turn on. I also put in brand new Energizer batteries from a pack that was unopened and still no power. I refuse to believe after 4 months of owning this product it has simply "burned out" but apparently that's what has seemed to happen. I am as of now awaiting an email from Power A which is the manufacturer of the product for a solution b/c it's past Game Stops 30 day period to take it back or exchange it. Like I said earlier, if you're looking for extra range for any type of games like Just Dance or Michael Jackson, it's perfect but if Power A tells me this is a common problem, I advise you not to waste your $20 :o(
