As I said in the introduction, the Nyko Cord-Free Wireless Adapter for Wii Nunchuk works exactly as advertised. Getting everything synchronized and working takes a matter of moments, and I found the performance with the faux wireless nunchuk was just as good as having the corded nunchuk plugged into the bottom of the Wii Remote directly
The pair of AAA batteries in the base of the nunchuk sleeve adds a fair bit of weight and this could prove to be uncomfortable or unpleasant for certain gamers. This will be particularly pronounced for more physically active games, but will probably be less of an issue for more sedentary titles.
Given the price of the Nyko Cord-Free Wireless Adapter for Wii Nunchuk (MSRP is $20) and the fact you still need to provided a corded nunchuk for the thing to work, it’s probably a better idea to invest the additional $15 and get your hands on a truly wireless nunchuk instead. Thankfully, Nyko sells one of those too; it’s called the Kama Wireless Nunchuk, and it’s the same size as the regular nunchuk (except it doesn’t have a cord).
As it stands, the Cord-Free adapter does what it needs to do, but I imagine the Kama does it better.
- Very easy to setup and synchronize
- Performance is up to par with corded nunchuk
- Relatively inexpensive solution
- Good build quality
- Cord management system isn’t the best
- Extra weight from batteries takes some getting used to
- Probably better off buying Nyko Kama Wireless Nunchuk instead
- No wrist strap for added safety
