The tablets battery life with the standard included battery isn't too bad given the kind of tech it's got inside it. Generally at home you can leave it connected to the charger and never have to worry. However, it is nice to have that flexibility and peace of mind that if you want to use it away from the wall, you'll have enough juice to keep going.

Installation was a doddle, but you can't help but feel this was the battery the controller was meant to have from the start, with the compartment only half filled by the lower capacity battery. It does add a little extra heft to the controller, but I found this to be reassuring, and didn't create any additional strain from using the controller for longer periods.

I definitely recommend picking one of these up if you like gaming on your Wii U and use it a fair amount. Longer gaming sessions and peace of mind about not constantly having to recharge are well worth it.

As soon as you open the bottom of the Wii U Gamepad to put this battery in, you can instantly see that the Gamepad was designed to come with this battery in the first place. Clearly, Nintendo put in a smaller capacity battery to save money, and to earn extra cash on getting people to buy this product.

That sucks.

However, as a product, this is easy to install (plug it in and then charge the Gamepad), and it does what it says on the packaging, extra hours of wireless gameplay, with just a small trade off in weight.

Does exactly what it says on the tin and you'll definitely get an extra few hours out of the Wii U tablet controller (which has a relatively short time with the battery that comes with the console, 3-4 hours), and it's a doddle to fit. In hindsight though this purchase is a bit of an indulgence as I rarely get to play more than an hour or two anyways! My main motivation was to future proof the console, as (my thinking goes at least) batteries are often the first things to break, and I'd like to still be playing this in 20 years when it's a retro console!

Should have bought one much sooner. Online gaming has become much less hastle. Lasts ages and charges in roughly 3 hours. No complaints.

Larger capacity than a standard battery but seems to last only four hours, just like the orginal battery

Battery seemed OK and was easy to fit. However, after using it for an hour or so decided to charge it up but the blue charging light on the Wii U gamepad doesn't light up now so I don't know if the battery is charging or not. Hence the 2 star rating
