PSA: Take those batteries out!S

I haven't played on my Wii in close to a year. My golden Wiimote is very precious to me, so when I went to boot up Skyward Sword, I was dismayed to find that the batteries had not only exploded, but had removed the finish on my once-beautiful controller. Guys, pull the batteries out of your controllers when they aren't in use, especially on custom controllers. Don't let this disaster happen to you.
