You won’t believe how small the Wii U Game Pad’s battery actually is
You really won’t believe the size of the Wii U Game Pad’s battery. You may already know that it’s 1500mAH. Lasts me about 4-5 hours on a single charge.
I don’t find this terrible but I understand that a lot of people want better battery life out of the innovative new controller.
Someone took apart the back panel of the Game Pad to get a closer look at the battery and revealed that the compartment for the battery is significantly bigger than the battery.
Like the battery looks like it was just thrown in there at the last second. I wonder why the battery is so small when it clearly has enough space for more. Maybe the added space would only tack on another hour or two of actual real-world performance but I think we’d all appreciate it nonetheless.
Let’s hope Nintendo releases add-on battery packs that actually fit this compartment properly. Nyko is already stepping up on this issue so it’d be nice to see Nintendo do so.
