1.0 out of 5 stars imported it when it was 1st released 19 Oct. 2013
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I have followed this and the Power pak since they where announced. As we all know, the Wii U Gamepad battery is...very short.

I imported this and the Nyko battery extender at a high cost. Google "Nyko Power Pak problems".

On to the Uboost, It lasted maybe a week longer than the power pak,with the same problem. Taking forever to charge and completely discharging after a few mins. I did complain to Nyko when the power back broke but the only offered to send me a uboost. So it was pointless.

I'm not alone in having issues with this item, but you know Amazon will support you if problems develops with this. BUT>

I dont recommend it myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works perfectly, but needs a simple use manual 18 April 2013
By Daniel Mosquera - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This item works like a charm to give me an extension of my game time on my days off. Installation is very easy and does the job perfectly. However, the box does not give instruction on how to use it. This works for me:

1) Keep the Uboost off while you play the game.
2) Once the WiiU gamepad's battery start to run off. Turn on Uboost. It will start recharging the gamepad's battery.

I have the Deluxe Wii u and this works with the cradle and it charges both batteries at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great investment if you play for long periods of time. 23 Feb. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Pros:
-Does it's intended job: Extends the battery of your WiiU Game Pad, allowing for longer play sessions.
-Easy Installation
-Although I haven't needed to, it has a tiny button on the back in case you need to Resync. It's situated that it's hard to press accidentally during play, but easy to press if you need to (a small object like a toothpick or paperclip.)
-Does not use a separate charger, it can use the standard WiiU Gamepad Docking Station or Charging Cable. It also will charge the Gamepad as well when plugged in.
-Due to being an external battery pack, it can be combined with a higher-capacity battery for even longer gaming sessions.
-Has a slide-out stand on the back so that you can place the Gamepad on a flat surface and see the screen.

Cons:
-It may get a little warm during usage, unsure if it's just mine or common.
-The instructions could stand to describe the product a bit more.

Neutral/Notes:
-It adds some weight to the Gamepad. This wasn't an issue for anyone in my family, but it may bother some people.
-When your internal battery starts to run low, you need to activate the battery pack manually. It will show a orange light and start charging the Gamepad.
-The slide-out stand on the back doesn't fall loose nor does it slide around when you have it set up. On the flipside, it takes a little effort to pull the slide out, and is somewhat noisy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Battery pack works great! 9 Jun. 2013
By S. Jimenez - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Very easy to install (You just clip it on and screw the pack to the Wii U game pad) and voila! I leave battery pack powered off till the battery in my game pad dies, then I turn on the pack (Which in turn recharges the battery in the game pad) and when your done playing, you can turn it off to conserve the charge or leave it on so it keeps charging the Wii U game pad battery. And a bonus, I found out last night that it works with the cradle stand also (I was afraid that with the extra bulk it wouldn't fit, but alas it does).

3.0 out of 5 stars Works but at a cost 17 July 2013
By jsun - Published on Amazon.com

Works as intended. It is real simple to install, no tools needed. One major issue some people might have with it is the added weight to the Wii U game pad. It's significantly heavier now and may turn some people off.
