PowerCheck is a simple homebrew utility that allows the user to check the exact battery percentage of four Wiimotes and a balance board, instead of the home menu's vague 25% range report. It also supports custom backgrounds if the user adds a 640x480 image named background.png in the folder. Some backgrounds can be viewed here.
