A few months ago, Nintendo announced they would soon have a high-capacity battery available for the Wii U GamePad. As soon as it was available to order, I did so. In fact, I believe Hassan did as well. It has arrive, so I went ahead and did a very quick unboxing of it for you. The battery is supposed to extend the GamePad’s life to 8 hours (normally 5 hours on stock battery). We will be posting more details about the installation and testing later on NintendoFuse, but I thought you all would enjoy seeing this quick unboxing first.
EDIT: The test and installation video is now available. (click here)
High-Capacity Battery Specs:
Battery Capacity: 2550mAh / 9.2 Wh (offers up to 8 hours of use, compared to 3–5 hours with standard Wii U GamePad Battery)
Battery Voltage: 3.6V
Installation requires a size 0 screwdriver (not included).
Price at the time of purchase: $32 + shipping/handling
Where I bought it:
