Wii U

The significantly improved battery pack for Wii U’s GamePad is now available in North America through the Nintendo Store.

The longer-lasting battery was first revealed earlier this year, in May, but at the time only announced for Japan. The upgraded Wii U battery offers up to 8 hours of wire-free life for Nintendo’s second-screen/controller hybrid, which marks a notable leap up from the GamePad’s current 3-5 hour life.

The Nintendo Store listing prices the Wii U GamePad high-capacity battery for $32.00, not including shipping.
