High Capacity Wii U GamePad Battery Finally Available In UK

The Wii U GamePad may be a surprisingly nifty bit of kit, but its 2.5-5 hour battery life is on the embarrassing side of hopeless. Thankfully Nintendo have released their high capacity version in the UK - available from Amazon - which increases active play time to 5-8 hours. It will run you £25.

The 2550mAh battery was previously announced for Japan back in May, and comes just in time for getting stuck into Wind Waker again.

I'd be sold if it wasn't £25. Plus its frustrating this wasn't in the box to begin with.

Wait for a price drop methinks.

Nintendo sure know how to screw their early hardware adopters

How the F*** sits playing a Wii U for 5 hours without a break?

Jeez no wonder we're all fat ****.

Jerec - you think a controller with a 2.5 hour battery life is okay?

I'd end up smashing it in frustration pretty quickly, personally.
