St. Louis - Energizer has teamed with
Performance Designed Products to introduce the Energizer Flat Panel induction charger
for the Nintendo Wii.

 The four-remote design will retail for a suggested $49.99.

The newest
addition to Energizer's Power & Play series uses induction coupling
technology to charge Wii remotes wirelessly when placed on the charging mat.
Magnets secure the remotes in the proper position on the charger. There is no
need to remove sleeves, lanyards or Wii MotionPlus modules before charging.

"Energizer is
always looking at innovative solutions to power people's lives, and the Flat
Panel induction charger does just that for everyone who likes gaming," said
Jeff Ziminski, chief marketing officer, Energizer. "Utilizing contactless charging
technology, the Flat Panel induction charger makes charging your Wii remote
simple and convenient."

The charger comes
in a two-remote design for a suggested $29.99 and a four-remote design for a
suggested $49.99. Both SKUs are available now.

Energizer's Power
& Play line of gaming power products has sold more than 1.3 million units
since its debut last year, according to the company. The line includes charging
docks, charging cables and battery packs for the Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3 game
consoles and controllers.
