Wii U GamePad high-capacity battery available in North America


Those across North America looking to extend their Wii U GamePad play time can now do so through puchasing the high-capacity battery now available through the Nintendo Online Store.

Priced at $32, orders will ship by the second week of January and sees the battery life last for eight hours of use in comparison to the three to five hours achieved by the standard battery.

A screwdriver is all that you need to install it, with Nintendo explaining that it’s easy to do so.
