3.0 out of 5 stars short lifespan, 3 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gioteck GC-2 Wireless Controller for Nintendo Wii U - Black (Accessory)
Can't really review the item in depth cause the battery died on me after one use. From the short time (1 month) I had the item, I could sync the pad to my Wii and Wii U straight from the box (very easy). The controller is light and feel robust.

From the distance I used it (2.0-2.5 meter) the commands are real responsive and I did not see any difference with the official pad. I like the light on the analogue stick which make easy to use in the dark which prove it's a well designed piece of hardware.

Now why I can't really review it? After the first use, I then charge the gamepad but could not power it up after I charged it as per instruction. While I tried to charge it, the Battery LED last 10 minutes which was not enough to get it work. I plug the USB cable onto the Wii and try to power it on, but it did not work at all. Leave it a couple of weeks to make sure the battery will be discharge. Try to charge again but the battery charge last 10 min which is not enough time.

The bit where I am a bit disappointed is that I wanted to have a replacement but could not have one and I was asked to be refunded instead. I am in the process to send it back but now the price went up (from £12.5 to £14), and even if it seems to be a very good alternative to the official gamepad which is way too pricey. I am not sure if I will buy another one.

I could not put one or two star cause the gamepad when the battery worked, is really good but could not rate 4 or 5 star either. Shame I could not rate it 2.5 star which will be the right mark for me. Would I recommend it???? Yes but be aware you could have a end up with a bad batch (as every devices) and may not be offer a replacement. Personally and giving my experience I would not pay more than £13 for it.
