5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 10 Oct 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
for the idiot who gave the one star review and bleated on about a chinese battery for £8, go ahead. When it leaks or otherwise damages your system then you only have yourself to blame. Please don't use this as a forum to convince others to buy pontentially damaging cheap knockoffs. Only buy stuff with the official nintendo seal of quality folks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Never run out of power again (well nearly.) 27 Feb 2014
By JBV VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Simple to fit, the box includes the screwdriver required to remove the cover on the Wii-U pad.

Since fitting I've never had to stop playing due to low battery, unlike the standard one.

Why 4 stars? Just the price. I would have liked to pay no more than £20 for this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wii U gamepad high capacity battery. 22 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
Since upgrading from the initial battery included with the console I can fully recommend the larger battery, my play time has pretty much doubled from around 4-5 hours to a solid 8 hour play time. If you can justify the purchase price then don't hesitate to buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Capacity Battery 8 Feb 2014
By Sly Jon
Verified Purchase
I purchased this product because the standard battery in the Wii U Gamepad is fairly poor. Whilst this battery is quite expensive for what it is, I highly recommend anyone that plays their Wii U for extended periods of time should buy it. With my current settings on my Gamepad I get around 8 hours use now and it adds barely any weight difference. It's a shame Nintendo didn't just include this battery as standard but perhaps they did it to keep costs down

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I use to find with the old original battery my GamePad would last between two and three hours. It was a pain always having to plug the charger in so quickly, if I was in the middle of playing Mario Kart 8 online or doing a drawing on Art Academy. This High Capacity battery last a good six hours plus.
When I was installing the new battery, I saw this was the original one Nintendo intended to use. It fits into the back perfectly, where the old battery went in sideways and had a big gap either side of it. I guess Nintendo decided to do this, in order to help keep the costs of the Wii U console down as low as possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must have 31 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
Easy to fit, took a hefty first charge, but as of yet it hasn’t required charging yet and I’ve invested quite some time in Lego city undercover (also a must have for the system)

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it! 19 Oct 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This item is definitely worth the cost! For the quality that you get there is no substitute. If the battery in your WiiU Gamepad just doesn't supply enough play time, then this is the must-have item for you!

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
ive been a fan of Nintendo for a long time and the Wii U is a great console..I think Nintendo should be sending these out to customers who have bought the system and fitted to all future models..as we all know the gamepad battery is not the best. Having said that they dont include a charger on a £185 3DS XL which to me is the most bizarre decision ever.. but we all love you Nintendo, keep it up..

update 9/12/13

i have bought one of these, it took about 30 seconds to install, the Wii U gamepad screws are not tight at all and the new battery just fits in....it dosent feel that heavy, so far its worth the money, will see what happens after the big day

5.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile but expensive
A worthwhile upgrade for any Wii U owner.

My only complaint would be that the price has jumped from £25 in July 2014 (when I bought mine) to £32 in December 2014 - ouch!
