Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / UK Power supplies
« on: October 01, 2010, 06:30:07 AM »
I have rigged up a wiimote with a 400ma / 3v power supply but bluetooth does not connect reliably. So I want to try 1000ma / 3v which people on this forum have reported success with.

Does anyone know where to buy such a power supply in the UK ?

Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / What current for Wiimote ?
« on: November 24, 2009, 09:00:40 AM »

I have followed a method which has been successful for others, connecting a 3 volt power supply into a rechargeable battery pack which takes the place of ordinary batteries. I also bypassed the rechargeable batteries and wedged the red button so it will sync every time I turn on.

Unfortunately it is not detected by bluetooth. I have noticed that with the leds on the wiimote, 4 flash then 3, then 2, then 1. So I'm guessing this indicates a lack of power ??? ( Please advise if I'm wrong )

I have measured the voltage output and it is about 3v. The current from the power supply is 400ma but the output from the battery pack is about 240ma. ( There may be a resistor in the battery pack )

What kind of current should work with the wiimote ?


I have noticed that some people are successfully using a rechargeable battery pack with a USB lead and converter plug.

My query is about how this setup can sync with the computer. Am I correct in thinking that if I use a wedge to hold the inner red button down, that simply turning on power to the wiimote will trigger "discover" mode ? Will this work every time ?


Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / Wiimote mount idea

Just thought I'd add an idea which I don't think anyone else has mentioned.

For a free, secure wiimote mount, try using a retort stand and clamp from your school science department. Infinitely adjustable and stable - it works perfectly !
