What it is: Videogame-accessories manufacturer Penguin uses cutting-edge technology to juice up the included rechargeable batteries without having to plug the Wii Remote into anything. Why they'll want it: Nothing kills a heated Wii Sports competition like a dying Remote. The Electroflow keeps your Nintendo waggle-sticks ready for action, so your grandparents won't have any excuses for their laughable gutterballs. Another option: Featuring the same wireless technology, the Energizer 2X Induction Charge Station ($50) does the recharge thing while taking up less of that precious entertainment-center real estate.
