I opened the battery cover of my Wii controller and dropped it. By doing so I cracked one of the two notches of the battery door. The question is: where can I buy the replacement battery cover/door?


TIA.

your best bet would be to go to walmart or bestbuy and purchase one of those wiimote skins that go over your wii mote unless of course you want to go the hillbilly/ghetto way and fix it with tape. i highly doubt you will just find a replacement battery cover

I can't believe Nintendo hasn't released an official recharge kit yet. The way that remote eats batteries, they'd sell a ton (not to mention eliminating this problem).

isn't it easier (well, not easier but definitely cheaper) just to get 2,800 mAh rechargeable AA?

Yes, definitely cheaper, but I was thinking in response to the broken battery cover (which I almost broke the first time I opened it, so I feel your pain
).


But sometimes expensive solutions succeed too - just look at the iPod...

I've ordered the door!


Price for the door: $1

Price for shipping: $5

Puzzled why it requires $5 to ship a battery door: priceless!

Waiting 7-10 business days for the product to ship: even MORE priceless!


so right now I use saran wrap for the remote.
(until the new battery door arrives, that is)

The shipping is only $1 - the handling, OTOH, costs $4. That's how they get you...


I think my lan adapter was $5 shipping, so it's probably the lowest rate they charge.
