The Quad Dock Plus, like most DreamGear products, looks quite nice. Its design is based on the Wii itself; white, slender and sloping gently upward. A thin, unnecessary band of light is the same color as the glow of the Wii’s disc drive.
The device holds up to four rechargeable Wiis. They are made rechargeable by a battery back you insert into the battery compartment. Like Nyko’s Charge Station for the Wii, the Quad Dock Plus has a ridged back to make the remote slightly easier to grip.
There is also a rechargeable battery compartment that lets you charge up to four AA batteries.
The Good News: It Will Die Before Your Warrantee Runs Out.
All of which would be fine if the Quad Dock Plus hadn’t died this morning. I put a remote in and noticed nothing lit up. I wiggled the cord around and it lit up, then went out again. I got it working for a while, and then it wouldn’t stay on at all, although I could briefly get it to light up by wiggling the power connector around.
What’s the problem? I don’t know, and I don’t care. After reviewing DreamGear’s Rumble Blaster and Twin Star Sabers, I have simply given up hope that they are going to release anything well made. I can’t guarantee that if you buy the Quad Dock Plus that it will die on you, but I wouldn’t recommend chancing it.
