    • The batteries used by the factory are underpowered 600mAh rechargeables. I highly recommend replacing them with at least 850mAh ones, the higher the better.

    • Using your fingernail or a small screwdriver, carefully separate the two halves of the battery casing. These aren't glued and should separate with little effort.

    • Remove the two batteries, noting their orientation.

    • Clean up any leaking battery acid and/or corrosion.

    • Out of the dozen or so battery packs I have repaired, every single one had failed due to corrosion. This occurred even in units that were just a few months old.

    • Once the contacts and compartment are clean, insert your new rechargeable batteries.

    • Re-insert the screws. The battery pack will only fit in one direction.

    • While you are at it, clean the outer contacts and bend them out a little. This can help eliminate remotes having poor battery life.

    I would love to repair my RVL-003 controller but my battery pack has a different battery item #87048-E-14 top half of battery case is blue bottom half molded to back cover of controller is white have you ever changed out this type without destroying it? Can the battery case be split and change out batteries?

Conclusion

You should now have a working battery pack. Insert back into the Wii Remote and place on the charger. Allow it to get a good full initial charge in order to extend your battery life.

Enjoy your "non-reparable" repaired induction charging system.

Wow, that explains it. So many complaints about the energizer inductive batteries dying quickly. They take a product meant for two AA and replace it with two AAA's. Yep, that'll limit your playing time...

Easy to do! Just waiting to see if it will charge. If not, it was worth the shot. Thank you!
